In the process to get in shape the key is keep trying and never give up, everything sounds great in theory but in fact the process is really hard.
It’s really hard to wake up every morning to follow a diet and to eat exactly what you know you have to eat to get clean and stay healthy, it’s actually boring and also it’s hard to drink that protein milkshake instead to have a wonderful breakfast, and it’s really complicated start the workout during the morning time, Oh my gosh the first 10 minutes are the most complicated part of the routine, but if you get over that 10/20 minutes everything will be ok.
It’s a matter of time accommodate the mind and the body to the new system. There are a ton of online suggestions and recommendations, but the only truth is that you have to keep trying and keep going, there is no secret, just passion, determination and hard work on the diet and the gym. (a good body depends 70% on diet and 30% Gym).
Temptations will be “ALWAYS” there and would be amazing just to drink a protein smoothie, workout hard and get fit but reality doesn’t work that way and sometimes, I mean a lot of times, temptations will win the battle and the normal food, fast food, convenient lunch, and friends are going to be there to make even more complicated the process.
So don’t worry if you try and you feel that you can’t, that’s normal and happens even to the experts. The good news is that if you try hard every day to reach a perfect day of eating and workout, you will see the results on your body and that motivation will make easy the process to reach and actually to enjoy 2 or 3 days of perfect days every week. That is more than enough, 2 or 3 perfect days of perfect diet and workout, and just by trying hard the other 4 /5 days the body will have a positive reaction and you will see results #GoWorkout #NeverGiveUp.

NOW let’s talk about abs:
The most important factor in acquiring great abs is eating a healthy diet:
Drink at least three liters of water per day (100 oz) – Eat five servings of vegetables and fruits per day – Eliminate fried foods and cheese – Eliminate processed sugar (for example: sodas, cookies, candy) – Eliminate fatty red meat – only lean red meats (1-2 times weekly).
High protein diets may help at first but to get rid of that last 10-15 pounds, but you must exercise rigorously !!! some exercises I recommend are:
1- Cardiovascular exercise that’s the king and the key of everything, there is not other better exercise than Cardio
2- Advanced Crunch – (Legs up)
Lie on your back with your feet straight in the air. Keep your legs straight up in the air for the advanced crunches. Cross your hands over your chest and bring your elbows to your knees by flexing your stomach
3- Lower Back Exercise – Swimmers
Lie on your stomach and lift your feet and knees off the floor by flutter kicking repeatedly as if you were swimming freestyle.
4- Hanging Knee-ups
Bring your knees as high as you can
5- Stop reading this article and go to the gym ((NOW))
