Having that perfect set of abs is something that most of us aspire to. In a society where there is an ever increasing emphasis on the way we look, there definitely is a shift in people's perception of their own bodies. The images being portrayed by the media seems to set the new standard for what 'beautiful' looks like and if anything, this is a really high standard. One of the most sought after 'items' then seems to be flat and toned abs. For men this has become somewhat of a 'status symbol' while for women it is something to be admired. How then can you get flat abs fast? Although there are many strategies and techniques for how to get flat abs fast, very few actually work. It seems quite ironic to me that having flat and toned abs is such a sought after thing. When you consider the foods that are popular in our culture and how our popular past times focus on 'static' activities like watching TV or playing games - then it is no wonder that 99% of the population have the exact opposite of flat abs. Foods that are high in fat and sugar are incredibly hard to digest and it tends to stay behind in our bodies in the form of fatty deposits. Certain areas of our bodies are more susceptible to fat 'clogging' together and for men this tends to be around their waist and belly area while for women it is around the waist and glutes. So, the first step then in how to get flat abs fast is to address your diet. If you are in a hole and you want to get out - stop digging. Stop eating fatty foods that will only make the 'ring around your waist' bigger. Realize that underneath that layer of fat you actually do have a flat and toned set of abs. You simply need to remove the layer of fat, and apart from your diet the only other thing you can do is to exercise. The common misconception amongst people is that to develop well toned abs you have to do loads of sit-ups and crunches. Not entirely true. Although crunches and sit-ups (in all it's variations) play a very important role in toning and building the muscles, your overall fitness and body tone is equally important. By combining your cardio vascular exercise with abdominal strength training you will get flat abs faster than just doing one or the other. Your abdominal muscles are a very important muscle group. Running, swimming and cycling are all great cardio exercises that will also work your abs. Taking time to stretch is also very important in toning your abdominal area. You should stretch for at least 15 minutes after exercise and the more toned your abs become the more efficient the muscles will become at burning fat. The third step in how to get flat abs fast is a bit more controversial but one that I firmly believe in. It's about body posture and doing 'static' exercises of the abs. Your abs play a very important part in keeping your body upright. When you are crunched over while you walk (like most people tend to do these days) you are actually relaxing your abdominal muscles. When you are upright and straight your abdominal muscles are active and extended, so even while you are sitting or walking your abs are active which helps with toning and strengthening.


In the same vain you can use what is called 'static contraction' to tone and strengthen your abs. When sitting at your desk or lying in front of the TV, you can exercise your abs by tightening them for ten seconds and then relaxing for 30. Do 20-30 repetitions of this every day and even when you are walking you can do the same exercise to enhance the efficiency. These three steps for how to get flat abs fast is the proven steps that work. Although there are many 'tools' and 'gadgets' on the market that promise flat abs in 7 days - get real! It takes time and hard work. If it didn't everybody would walk around with perfectly toned abs. Eat right, exercise and tone. Do the hard work and you will see the results in about 6 to 8 weeks and as you do, this will inspire you to do more and before you know it you will have a perfect set of flat, perfectly toned abs.
