Your abs are not going to show when you are overweight. But that does not mean you cannot start integrating our ab exercise program into your regular routine. Your abs are there, and they will gain muscle and become stronger over time, even though you cannot see them.
For overweight men, and women, turning your body into the one you want (hopefully you’re thinking of a body that can grace the covers of fitness magazines) will be one of the most difficult things you will ever do in your life. You must be prepared for the challenges. It will take weeks, if not months, to undo the bad habits you have followed over the years.
The battle is primarily mental. You must be absolutely dedicated to this goal. You must imagine your body as one of a greek god. This program will take you out of your comfort zone, and then some.
Tell your friends and family about your goal. Write it down and stick it to your door. Even better, find a partner not only for motivation, but help in the gym as well.
It is absolutely necessary for you to start a cardio program and begin a healthy diet if you want washboard abs. You will never lose enough fat just by weight lifting. You must attack it from all three fronts: Diet, Exercise, and Cardio.
There are some schools of thought that say gradual progress is the way to do it. We think that is bullshit! The only way you are going to get fit and expose your six-pack is by willing your mind and body into it. You must dive in head first and never look back. When you are giving 110%, you see results quicker which leads to more motivation to continue giving it your all. When you take your sweet ass time, there is plenty of opportunity time for your talk yourself out of getting fit, and plenty of opportunities to fail over and over again.

Diet accounts for roughly 75% of weight loss. If all you did was follow our healthy diet guidelines, you would still lose weight.
Your primary goal is to lose as much fat as possible, as quickly as possible. You want to cut fat and expose the abs. After a number of weeks, you will notice the last few pounds will become harder and harder to get rid of. At this point, you should increase the intensity of your cardio and exercise program, and reduce fat and carbs in your diet.
To be honest, our healthy diet guidelines is not the fastest way to lose weight, but it is the most sensible, and it is something you should follow for the rest of your life. It works, plain and simple. There are many extreme diets out there, but none will provide the energy you need for our cardio and ab exercise routines, and none that develop healthy eating habits that last for the rest of your life.
As far as cardio goes, there is slow state cardio (jogging), and high intensity cardio (sprints, interval running, etc). Both forms of cardio should be incorporated into a weight loss diet diet. The goal is to cut fat to expose the abdominals.
Cardio is best done early in the morning before you eat anything.
Attach this routine to your regular workout routine. The following regimen has high-intensity exercises that will have you pushing yourself to the edge. That’s good, because the more intensity you train with, the faster you will lose weight.
At this point, you might be completely spent. But when you are ready to take it to the next level, add this workout on Saturdays!
Well, that was our Ab Exercise Workout for you! Of course, if you search around, there is a plethora of information on different exercises and ab workouts, but this is just an example of what you can start with and continue to do for a few weeks.
