The shrink wrap effect happens when your skin starts to fill every single contour, thereby providing you with a more aesthetically pleasing exterior. This is as a result of a lower body fat percentage.
Keep your cardio and lifting separate. Both cardio and weight training are essential parts of any good routine to define muscles or get cut abs. However, many of us have our designated work out days where we do everything. There are many advantages to doing your intense cardio days on different days than your heavy lifting days. For example, if you are doing heavy leg lifts on monday wait to do your heavy leg cardio until Tuesday or Wednesday. First of all you will not even be able to get the maximum results out of your already tired legs if you do them on the same day but also keeping them separate will help your body to recover and your muscles to grow even more.
So many people are not eating right. With the choices of today’s different gimmicky diets it’s no wonder so many people are fat. We have low-carb, High protein, atkins, south beach, weight watcher, etc. choosing the “right” diet for getting a shredded 6-pack can be a daunting task. In order for your abs to show you need to find a healthy meal plan that encourages fat loss. Anything with hydrogenated oils, any type of processed food, and anything with high fructose corn syrup needs to be eliminated from your diet today. These foods are a huge reason why so many people fail with weight loss, and why so many people are fat today. If you focus on taking out all the things I mentioned above from your daily diet, you will see results even without including a weight training program with your diet.
Next you need to focus on exercising correctly. Every time ago to the gym I see so many overweight people focusing on their abs are their biceps. When really they should be focusing on a full workout routine review. If you are focusing on a small muscle you want developed in your body stop right now. If you want to achieve the low body fat percentage you need to have your six pack show, you need to do full body exercises that work out the entire body. This will build more muscle, which will burn more calories, increase your metabolism and skyrocket the fat burning hormones found inside your body. I recommend high-intensity interval training (HIIT) to everyone that asks. The rotating high and low intensity intervals will really help you build muscle.
Exercises that involve explosive movements are great for increasing your vertical leap and for training fast twitch muscles. You can train you’re calves with these types of exercises to help you jump higher.
Place one hand on the back of the head and slowly bend on a side where a dumbbell is placed as you can feel a little pain from the weight of the dumbbell pulling you down. Your feet must be kept straight, still and secured.
For the legs you will do squats. Retrieve one of the jugs. Standing with feet shoulder width apart and holding the jug close to the chest now slowly lower your body to the squat position. At the same time you are slowly forcing the jug out in front of you by extending your arms. This is done in three sets of twelve and a minute between each set for rest.
