Train To See Your Six Pack Abs
0:17 #1 – Haven’t been training enough
How often are you training your chest? Maybe only once a week? Maybe everyday? Both have their drawbacks so my rule is to train chest at least twice a week if you want to build it up. We also need to identify your ‘training age’ and no, I’m not talking about how old you are, but how long you’ve been training – has it been just a few weeks? Months? 1 year?
I promise you that developing my chest didn’t happen overnight, and it took time and effort to build it up, which brings me to my next point.
0:48 #2 – Lack of Effort
You can’t expect to get a shredded, ripped chest if you don’t want to put in the time to first learn how to train, develop proper form, and push yourself and make your body grow. You do want a bigger, better chest, right?
So, just because you don’t see anything change in a few weeks does NOT mean you give up – persistence and consistency builds not only the chest you’re looking for, but goes towards getting your abs, bigger arms, shoulders, legs, and the whole physique.
2:18 #3 – Holding onto excess body fat”
If you are starting out with some weight to lose, then make sure you are getting that handled too.”
“If you start training the muscles underneath the fat, they can still develop, but you’ll NEVER see them unless you drop off the excess weight and lower your body fat percentage.
For that, you gotta incorporate some solid HIIT training cardio. And along with doing HIIT cardio and lowering the body fat comes proper nutrition, which is my next point.
3:36 #4 – Not eating enough
You may be thinking ‘i eat all the time, i’m eating over 2500-3000 calories a day’ or whatever, but what are you eating? Is it all healthy choices? Are you trying to ‘dirty bulk’ and eat everything in sight? Because that isn’t the best OR healthiest way to do this.
Nutrition is important since you need to be eating enough, and that also means eating enough of the RIGHT foods
Protein sources like chicken, turkey, lean beef, tuna and salmon
Green, cruciferous veggies like broccoli, spinach, and kale
Good carbs like whole-grain rice, sweet potato, and steel-cut oats
Fruits like apples, bananas, strawberries, and blueberries
Nuts like raw almonds, walnuts, peanuts, and macadamia nuts
Guys, that’s just a small list of tons of other options you have to eat, and I put down 20 different options here for you.”
Not only that, if you are trying to add size and muscle, you need to be eating all those great, healthy foods at the least for breakfast, lunch, and dinner with 2 snacks in between meals.
4:30 #5 – Doing the WRONG training
You may be doing auxiliary chest exercises versus the big, compound movements you should be prioritizing like your dumbbell or barbell bench press and dips
Or, say instead of doing the compound movements first, you are tiring out your chest with things like cable or dumbbell flys beforehand – that’s just gonna make it harder for you to do the compound exercises that give you the better results that you’re looking for”
5:28 #6 – Don’t get ahead of yourself”
If you’re just a beginner starting out with no clue about your mind-muscle connection, what kind of range of motion you have, what weight you can comfortably handle and use with good form, then don’t go trying to copy a pro bodybuilder or powerlifter routine.
They’ve made it their career and lifestyle to commit to looking like they do and training like they do, so if you just want a better-looking, defined chest, worry about sticking to the basics and making all your training – every rep and every set – really count.
Now you know what may wrong with your chest development and training, it’s time to start changing things up to do them the right way.
