Fighting Fit :: How adding interval training can get your abs showing

Who doesn’t want the washboard abs? Naturally, it’s easy, but here’s an angle that could help you.

By TheMacLife - 12 Sep 2018

Out of all the outcomes from working out, washboard abs are one of the most desired — and hardest acquired.

To get a visible six pack, trainers need to come at the issue from multiple angles. The exercise methods, frequency of them, and of course the nutritional plan are all huge parts of getting the desired effect for your abdominals.

As discussed on the MacLife Health page, one aspect athletes can use is interval training.

Obtaining washboard abs can be done, but it will take #hardwork. ⠀ .⠀ Whether you’re a fighter, athlete or just wish to get in shape, here’s some things you can do to help strengthen and show off your core; ⠀ .⠀ Incorporate interval training to your workouts, roughly three times a week. This will help to lose subcutaneous fat better than only engaging in steady-state training. Your abs are also relatively strong so pack on the weight when doing crunches or leg raises. Sleep also plays a part in obtaining toned abs as poor sleep can directly result in increased fat storage around the belly. These small changes to a workout can play a massive part in helping you succeed, so make the change! ⠀ .⠀ #themaclife #health #mcgregorfast #conormcgregor #training #fitness #motivation #goals #trainhard #workhard #beastmode #henotoriousmma #workrate #hardwork #ali #mondaymotivation

By incorporating interval training to workouts at roughly three times a week, athletes can lose subcutaneous fat better than only engaging in steady-state training. Heavier weights when doing crunches or leg raises are advised. As with most workouts, rest plays a role, particularly when it comes to obtaining toned abs. Poor sleep can directly result in increased fat storage around the belly.

Remember, when it comes to abs, just concentrating on workout alone is usually insufficient — nutrition remains an enormous factor.
