Personal Trainer Tips For a Flatter Stomach

Flat Abs Tip #1: Perform strength training and stability based abdominal routines at least three times each week either on your own or with a personal trainer. Your abs are like any other muscle in your body-they need to be consistently challenged in order to become stronger and better looking.

Flat Abs Tip #2: Stop eating processed food. Processed foods, refined sugar and flour based products don’t belong in your diet if you want lean abs. Removing these items from your daily routine will allow your body to maintain stable blood sugar levels, reduce insulin levels and speed up fat loss.

The fat stored by excess sugar intake (insulin) primarily lands around your waist, covering your abs and making you look fat. Cut these items from your diet and replace them with whole foods such as lean meats, vegetables, nuts and fruits. Consult with your personal trainer about meal plans to suit your own specific needs.

Flat Abs Tip #3: If your trainer has you doing long and slow cardio workouts. He is doing you no justice. Instead, use HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) instead of your cardio workouts. HIIT consists of intense bursts of cardio and short periods of recovery. This will turn up your metabolism and ignite fat loss.

Flat Abs Tip #4: Crunches are useless and bad for your back. Ask your trainer about serratus crunches and half get ups. These will force your abs to work harder, and will achieve better results.

Flat Abs Tip #5: Don’t be fooled. The market is flooded with ‘lose weight’ products and products that claim to flatten your stomach. Never waste your time or money on packaged health food that comes with claims of weight loss. If it’s processed and in a packet, then its probably bad for you.

Gimmicks on infomercials will claim to make personal training obsolete but these abdominal exercise machines are merely gimmicks – all you really need is your own body weight, maybe an exercise ball and dumbbells or a medicine ball.

Flat Abs tip #6: Challenge your core often by doing planks and stability exercises. If your personal trainer does not do any stabilisation exercises with you I think you are wasting your money. Don’t limit your abdominal exercise to the gym, incorporate core strengthening during daily life and throughout each workout. A strong core is the foundation for flat, tight abs.

There you have it! Seven tips that your personal trainer should be using with you and when diligently applied, will help you shed the fat and tighten your abs.

But, keep in mind that your results will be seriously hindered if you do the same exercise routine over and over. Contact a personal trainer now in order to give your abs a progressive challenge in order to transform.
