Here is the new magic exercise routine where you don’t have to work as hard to get a body you want. Make changes that are within your means, if you haven’t been exercising every day and calorie counting what makes you think you will start now? If you are 30 pounds overweight do you really want washboard abs or will you be happy to drop 20 pounds and change your physique for the better while still enjoying your vices just not as much? You burn fat from your frame and add muscle while keeping the same friends and eating at the same places.
I made a statement a few years ago in a fitness community that most people would gain a huge boost to their confidence if they get into pretty good shape. If you are really focused and aim for a 4 pack will you not be happy that you achieved that because you don’t have a 6 pack? I read on steelsupplements.com that “about 15% of people have 4-pack abs while 2% of people have a 6-pack. Steelsupplements.com states that is to do with a lot of different factors that I am not bringing up here that are still interesting to read. I looked up the stat to bring up a picture of hidden meaning. In my personal experience, it’s harder to get a 6-pack than a 4-pack but I still feel great when I have a 4-pack. No, I didn’t do the work it takes to get a 6 pack but my stomach is almost flat and I feel great with that appearance.
I still like ice cream, pizza, and watching shows in the home theatre I had built because I like my downtime and strive to make the most of it. Sometimes I think I’d like to be in better shape and completely shredded and that doesn’t take away from how I feel about myself. I have spinal injuries and do exercises to keep them from getting worse every day. I am in fairly good shape because I take time every day to maintain my current level of health and make myself a better person. I feel I have a pretty good balance in life and I believe if you take some time out of your day to take care of yourself you will have a more balanced life as well.
