Ab Workout Mistake BLOATED ABS
What's up, guysé Jeff Cavaliere, ATHLEANX . Welcome to Torso Thursday here at ATHLEANX.I know another Washboard Wednesday a day late, but I've got to do my best with what we'vegot, righté So, here's the deal: more importantly, I want to help you to solve this problem.The problem is, your ab workout making you look fat. You see, there actually is a way that youshould be breathing when you're doing your ab training that will help you to achievethe goal you're actually trying to do in the first place. That is to flatten your belly,cinch it down, and create a tighter, narrower
looking waste. But if you're breathing improperly, you'reactually going to be doing the exact opposite. You're going to be working more toward a distendedbelly, more toward a relaxed belly, and you're going to be looking toward a fatter lookingbelly, even if you have abs. I see guys from time to time that actuallyhave abs that are distended and pushed out from anabolic steroid use. So what I wantto do today is teach you how to do that properly, but more importantly, get you out of thatmindset also of thinking that your ab workout could do anything to combat the fat if you'realready fat.
You see, people have this idea quot;I've beendoing ab workouts, you give me all these great ab workouts, but I still look fat. It's notdoing anything to shrink my belly.quot; Because no ab workout ever will. The consumed energyin an ab workout is minimal, maybe 30, 40, 50 calories and you're simply not moving enoughmuscles at a time for a long enough period o time to cause any significant impact interms of caloric burn. So an ab workout alone, even if you're consistentwith it, will never be enough. That is why in our ATHLEANX app, the 6pack Promise, it'sactually available on Android and iOS. We don't just give you the actual ab workout,but we give you as ample meal plan as well
to help you start getting rid of that overlyingfat because it's the only way you're ever going to have an impact on the fat. There's a couple things that you'll hear whenit comes to having a thicker looking waist and what you should do about it. First ofall, some people will tell you to avoid oblique training because what the obliques will dois thicken your waist and make you look blockier. That's bullshit, guys. That's not good advice. It's one of the worst pieces of advice, especiallyas you conquer your meal plans and start shredding some of that fat because what your obliquesare going to do is allow you to have that
more tapered look. So you can see here thatan oblique that's developed, yes, it can cause a little bit of thickness down here. That'sjust our genetics. That's what we're born with, but it's okaybecause if the obliques themselves have definition up above, they're going to create this taperingeffect because of the angle that they run. So you never want to avoid oblique trainingif you're trying to get a more tapered looking waist. You want to make sure you're pairingyour oblique training, most importantly, with a nutrition plan that allows you to show offthe obliques. Otherwise, yes, it might look a little blocky,but it's not justifying enough the reason
for you to skip doing obliques. But as faras breathing goes, you want to make sure that you're not breathing out during any of yourab exercises. Is this easyé No, it's not that simple. It's a skill that you might have toacquire, but that's okay. Take a little bit of time, just like you didwhen you started riding a bike where you started to practice what it feels like and once yougot it right you can ride a bike without even thinking. Well, you want to make sure thatyou're not blowing out as you exert or perform the ab movement. So, look here on a crunch. If I'm in a crunch â€“ a lot of us make themistake of doing this. We're crunching up
