If you want to know how to build six pack abs fast, then I want you to read the 3 steps I have listed below. The time it will take to get flat abs will depend largely on how much fat you need to lose. It could take anywhere from as little as one month to more than 8 weeks to see those washboard abs, but just think, if you get started today, you are that much closer to getting a flat stomach.

Step 1: Exercise

It may be obvious that exercise will play an important role in how to build six pack abs fast, but it's the kind of workout you do that will make the biggest difference. I'm sure you've been told countless times to do lots of abdominal workouts, but the truth is, abdominal workouts alone are not the most effective way to get six pack abs.

You have to combine abdominal workouts (which best serve to strengthen your abs) with some cardio, such as mountain biking, swimming and stair climbing, along with weightlifting and full body workouts. Out of all of these exercises, using full body workouts, where more than one joint is involved, will burn fat and add muscle quicker than just doing crunches and sit ups.

Step 2: Eat Right

This too may be a no-brainer for some, but it's alot harder than you think. All around us we are surrounded by unhealthy foods. This is especially true if you have a family. It's real hard to stay away from the donuts if your husband or wife buys them and sticks them on the counter in plain site.

It would be ideal if you could persuade the whole family to eat healthier, but that's easier said than done. It may not be easy, but try to prepare meals that incorporate only fresh, unprocessed foods in your menu. Good choices would be:

*Lean meats (skinless chicken or turkey and fish such as salmon, flounder or whitefish)

*Fruits (berries are excellent, citrus, apples or melons)

*Vegetables (peppers, avocados, tomatoes, dark green leafy lettuce, carrots)


*Natural peanut butter, nuts

*Whole grains, oatmeal

*Non-sugary drinks (unsweetened coffee or tea and water are best)

Eating healthy should be a priority anyway. Learn to by-pass soda, processed foods and anything with high-fructose corn syrup. Cut down on salt intake and skip the margarine.

Step 3: Boost Metabolism

This step kind of fits in with eating right, but it's the way you eat that also has a big impact on how to build six pack abs. We have been trained as a society to eat three large meals a day - breakfast, lunch and dinner. This is fine, except if you want to get a flat stomach.

Instead, eat 6-7 small meals throughout the day and you will keep your metabolism working 24/7. Each meal should consist of foods that were listed above. Do not head out and get yourself any fast food, take the time to prepare healthy meals and snacks.
