If you’re exercising and eating right and still not seeing a six-pack, then you might be making one of these mistakes.
If you exercise occasionally and do resistance training even just once a week, chances are that you do have a six pack. The problem is that it is hidden under a layer of fat.
Here are a few problems you can avoid as well as the necessary changes you need to make for visible six-pack abs!
Problem: You're doing too much cardio
Solution: Instead of doing an hour of cardio, only do it for no more than 30 minutes three times a week.
Problem: You aren't doing enough strength training
Solution: Do 2-3 days a week of resistance training. This type of workout will cover all of your core muscles while also targeting your entire body. The more muscles you build, the more calories you will burn at a resting rate.
Problem: You eat too much dairy (dairy causes inflammation and bloating)
Solution: Limit yourself to 1 serving of dairy per day.
Problem: You have too much gluten in your diet (Gluten isn't bad for many people—but it does cause inflammation in the body)
Solution: Cut down on wheat products like breads, pasta, cereals and cookies.
Problem: You're doing the wrong type of core training
Solution: Replace sit ups with front planks, side planks, and the other core blaster combinations. FYI, sit ups do more harm than good because a sit-up places an extreme amount of pressure on the lower discs of the spine and only works a small section of your abdominals in exchange.
Problem: You don't sleep enough
Solution: Get 7-9 hours of sleep every night
