If you’re a man over 40 you might be thinking is it even possible to get a six pack?
The answer is yes, it’s all about body fat.
You don’t need to be completely shredded to get a six pack but you do need to achieve a body fat percentage of 10% or under.
Now when men think about getting a six pack they think about cardio, running, biking, basically anything to get the heart rate up as well as doing excessive amounts of crunches.
But this doesn’t work because doing tons of cardio strips away lean muscle and lowers testosterone even further.
In order to get a six pack you must build lean muscle. That’s the first point of call, because then you’ll permanently rev up your metabolism.
Yes, when you’re sleeping you’ll be burning fat, that’s exactly what you want. And strength training will give you this.
Hold on you might be thinking, I don’t want to be a bodybuilder?
Either do I and that’s why I teach men over 40 how to get that lean, pleasing appearance like you see in the movies.
NOT big and bulky physiques that women HATE.
So back to getting a six pack, strength training, especially compound movements are essential.
Compound movements will train 2-3 large muscle groups in one go, building lean muscle. Not to mention being extremely effective for men over 40.
Ok so with that out of the way let’s talk about nutrition. I believe if you nail strength training and nutrition, you’ll be able to get a six pack.
Perhaps add in some walking to expend more calories, but you definitely don’t need to go crazy.
You need to be a calorie deficit, but not eating too few calories. Out of those calories you need to break it up into the correct number of protein, carbohydrates and fats.
I cover everything in my popular course, Ripped Abs Over 40.
