OK, let’s be serious for a minute. If you’ve ever asked whether or not it’s possible to get abs in a week, the answer is a resounding NO. The same can be said for a fortnight or even a month. This is simply not enough time for significant physiological changes to occur in the body. Don’t be totally discouraged though, as applying the correct principles of diet and exercise consistently over an extended period of time, around 4 months, can radically transform your body.
The first step to flat abs is to forget about situps, at least for now. The real key to fast abs is fat loss. Get your total body fat percentage low enough (around 12%) and your abs will come into view. Naturally, the rate at which you’ll see success depends on how much fat you’ve got to lose, plus your level of dedication.
When you’re looking for the fastest method to get abs you need to keep things as simple and effective as possible. This starts with assessing your diet. Do a 7 day food diary and log everything you eat during that time – not nearly as good as you thought it was, right? Use this as your base to build upon later by adding or subtracting foods based on your caloric needs. Next, either sign up at your local gym, or buy a pair of adjustable dumbbells and clear an area (the garage is perfect) where you can workout safely. Finally, head out and scout a place you can do some sprint/jog/interval work for your cardiovascular training sessions.
