Lucky 9


Time seems to have flown too fast, it’s already February! And in a few days, Kriska and I will be off to Boracay! I’m very excited about it that I sometimes I can’t sleep at night haha!

I can still remember, during my teen years, whenever we would go swimming during summer, I would workout just a week before the trip, thinking that I will immediately have washboard abs. But unfortunately building perfect abs is not like magic.

Having a great midsection will have to take time and knowledge. For those of you who have always been dreaming of having perfect abs, let me share with you my 9 lucky tips:


1) NO TO JUNK FOODS

What you eat is a reflection of what you are. Eating salty snacks, candies, gum, sweets, desserts, fried food, and fast food will give you nothing but a flabby midsection. Eating junk foods all the time will also lead to being overweight and having some health problems. They wouldn't call it 'junk' for nothing at all right?

2) HYDRATE

Drinking sufficient amount water will help you flush out your body's toxins. Enough water intake will make your body functioning to its highest level and will therefore put your metabolism level at its best state.

3) PROPER EXERCISE

Lifting weights combined with cardiovascular exercise will help you gain muscle and burn fat. The more muscles you have, the more your body burns fat even when at rest. Cardiovascular training for 30-60 minutes will raise your metabolism and turn your body fat into energy.

4) EAT RIGHT

Eat healthy foods like green leafy vegetables, fruits, fish and egg. The more healthy food that you eat, the more lean your muscles will become, which avoids storing of unwanted body fats.

5) NEVER EVER SKIP BREAKFAST

Begin your day by eating high protein breakfast. Research shows that eating quality meal in the morning helps regulate blood sugar and improves one's metabolism throughout the day.

6) BE INSPIRED

Find a photograph that inspires you the most and or someone with perfect washboard abs. Place it where you can see it everyday to give you a daily motivation.

7) BE DETERMINED AND BE ON FOCUS

Whatever your waistline looks like don’t lose hope. Always be determined to achieve the perfect midsection. Always think be optimistic and of course, work on it!

8) BE EQUIPPED

Knowledge is Power. Read materials that will broaden your knowledge. The more you know, the better your chances are in developing your midsection into perfection.

9) BREATHE!

Deep breathing will oxygenate the body, which boosts metabolism, which helps fat loss. Proper breathing while doing abdominal exercises is a good way to tighten your abs and helps keep fat at bay.

I've been doing these 9 simple tips through the years which is why I was able to achieve noticeable results:



So what are you waiting for? Go get those muscles burning and be ready to show off those abs!
