TMHS 23: The Best Exercises for Abs Plus 3 Keys to Making Ab Exercises More Effective

In this episode we’re diving into the world of 6-pack abs, flat bellies, and shrinking waistlines. No, this isn’t some hyped up, “How to get abs in a week!” gimmick. I’m sharing with you real, tried and true strategies on how to get flat abs, lose belly fat, and become a more impressive version of yourself.

It all starts with understanding what type of fat you’re dealing with (because all fat isn’t created equal). You’re going to learn about that today, plus the best exercises for abs, and even how to do cardio that targets belly fat. No fancy ab machines are required. As a matter of fact, if you’re using most of these ab machines then you’re probably crunching up the wrong tree.

So, get ready, listen in, and take full advantage of these tips for flat abs because they work. At the end of the show you’ll have your flat belly black belt and you’ll even be able to teach others how to do things right.

In this episode you’ll discover:

  • What the 2 different types of belly fat are.
  • What having “fat organs” has to do with expanding your waistline.
  • Why belly fat is linked to heart disease and cancer.
