Are you looking for the fastest method to lose weight or, if you are younger, a quick method for acquiring a six pack abs.   Will it be a gym workout schedule, home based workout routines or a regular morning or evening jogging program? If you choose any of these methods you may need to be very patient because it is not the quickest way to lose weight fast.

I will share my personal experience and couple it with the quantitative research I have done on this particular subject. While patience may possibly the final ingredient in a successful program, there are more important factors that will determine whether you succeed or fail.

As human beings, we tend to resist changes, particularly to our daily routine or to our life style in general. Herein lies the first difficulty with a bodybuilding or weight loss program. The very first thing you must do is to establish a strong motivation for change and translate this into a realistic goal. What precisely is it that you really want to accomplish?

The Reason We Need Strong Abdominal Muscles

You need strong abdominal muscles because they are your “core” muscles and they determine our core strength and fitness.


Your body places quite a bit of pressure on your core abdominal muscles. They give your body endurance and strength so it can perform its tasks better. Try standing up for 12 hours, just standing up. Your legs will tire because they need to be active but other parts of your body will also tire quickly.

By strengthening your core muscles you gain “core fitness”. You will be able to do physical activities better, for longer and with more intensity. People with poor core strength will find everything much more difficult as they will tire more easily.

Endurance activities and hard work do not come naturally to us. With poor core fitness, you will find your endurance flagging quickly and everything becomes much more difficult to accomplish. You may experience pain and your body will simply not do what you want it to do.

It is only when you are lying down resting that you also rest your core muscles. Work on your abdominal muscles and you will reap substantial benefits. The most basic tasks will become easier and you can accomplish more strenuous tasks longer and with improved intensity. As a result, you will feel fresher and in far better shape.

It is reasonable to assume that most people know and understand that the solution for losing weight and acquiring a lean, fit body is based on two main ingredients which are:

To make things easy on yourself, try to make one change per week and commit yourself to making the change a permanent one. You need to develop a plan and stick to it if you wish to obtain results.  Let us first talk about nutrition. Read more
