Six Pack Abs for Skinny Guys

Being blessed with a fast metabolism is a great thing – you need to pay less concentration to your tummy than fat guys. With a little effort, you can build solid rock six pack abs with lesser time.

When it comes to reducing excess belly fat in skinny guys, there’s really no magic to it. It only requires smart training, a LEAN, clean diet, and minimal equipment…not ab workouts 7 days per week, ridiculous ab machines, or crunch, after crunch, after crunches.

Here we’ve put together some of the best tips to burn skinny belly fat and a tummy-toning workout to help you reveal that sexy midriff underneath.

Lift Like A Pro

You MUST have a base of muscle before you start Abs Workout Routine. To gain muscle, you must get stronger by doing heavy ass weight compound exercises. This is the simplest, most powerful way to build muscle. You don’t need to train a muscle directly for it to grow. When you do a heavy compound exercise like a Bench Press, your arms are holding the bar. It’s not just your chest working, your triceps have to push the weight as well… and a much heavier weight than on isolation exercises like triceps kickbacks.

So If you want to build muscle, stop doing isolation exercises and start doing heavy compound exercises. This means:

  • If you want bigger biceps, stop doing curls. Do Barbell Rows
  • If you want bigger triceps, stop doing kickbacks. Do Weighted Dips
  • If you want bigger chest, stop doing dumbbell flies. Bench Press
  • If you want bigger shoulders, stop doing front raises. Overhead Press
  • if you want bigger back, stop doing lat pulldowns. Deadlift
  • If you want bigger legs, stop doing leg extensions. Squat

With compound exercises, you’ll also achieve a much more balanced physique because you’re not favoring body-parts. And since they work several muscles at the same time, you’ll burn more calories and get a full body workout with three exercises. You’ll build more muscle and burn more fat while saving time.

Don’t worry about pump. Simply add weight on the bar. As you get stronger, as you’re lifting more weight, you’ll automatically build muscle. It’s that simple.

Eat Like A Horse

Your muscles need food for energy and to recover from your hard workouts. If you want to build muscle, you need to eat like a horse. Your foundation:

  • Eat whole, unprocessed foods. Anything your grandpa wouldn’t eat, don’t eat it either. Drop the junk, soda, frozen foods and all that processed crap. Instead eat lots of natural foods like steaks, chicken breast, veggies, fruits, whole grains, etc.
  • Get 1 g/lb bodyweight of protein a day. You don’t need whey protein supplements, just eat a whole source of protein with each meal. Eggs at breakfast, meat at lunch, poultry at dinner, cottage cheese for the snack, raw milk before bed. This will get you the recommended 1g of protein per lb of bodyweight a day to build muscle.
  • Drink a gallon of water a day. Heavy lifting will make you sweat and thus lose water. But your muscles need water for hydration and recovery. So drink up, gallon a day. Don’t worry about water intoxication – unless you eat whole foods and don’t drink a gallon in 30mins.

Remember what you do OUTSIDE the gym is equally important.

Strengthen Your Core, Train Your Abs Smartly

When it comes to ab training, people often spend all of their time doing crunches and sit-ups. These exercises can be effective, but they focus on your upper abs. Whenever you train, you must include exercises that target your lower abs and obliques to prevent muscle imbalances.
