Getting to hangout with the guys that only last year I followed and looked up to through YouTube. It’s showed me that when you work hard and push yourself towards an area in life you want to be in, things pay off and you’ll get to that point. Amazing day with @benkealy and @nabilelh_ . Now off for a night in Dublin Life’s good
Here's a few important tips on how you can most effectively build up your abs:
1)) Small, Frequent Meals Along With Plenty Of Water:
Eating small, frequent meals with adequate carbohydrates, protein, and fats will speed up your metabolism and will allow your body to burn off excess body fat. Your metabolism will slow down dramatically 3 hours after a meal so plan to eat once every 2 1/2 to 3 hours. A faster metabolism equals more calories burned and less fat covering your abs.
2)) Don't skip your breakfast! A lot of people skip breakfast in the morning and then absolutely kill their metabolism. By simply eating a balanced breakfast within 30 minutes of waking up, you can actually increase your metabolism by roughly 20-30%! That is a huge difference! Take advantage of it.
3)) Two Words: Cardiovascular Exercise. The beauty of cardiovascular exercise is that most of the energy that you burn during cardiovascular exercise is fat (70-90%). Fat can only be burned through aerobic processes in the body. This basically means that your body only burns fat when enough oxygen is available.
Doing cardiovascular exercise creates a need for energy but also forces your body to pump a lot more oxygen into the bloodstream. Since you are performing exercise, your body will want to maintain your muscle tissue and will prefer to burn off fat as energy instead. (Cardiovascular exercise is much more effective in the morning as well since the body is refreshed.)
