How to Get Six Pack Abs


by Amanda Jane Snyder

Want to get a six pack?

Now before I tell you the EXACT steps to take to get a six pack I want you to ask yourself... do I actually want this? Do I actually want six pack abs?

"Of COURSE I do Amanda, that's why I'm reading this blog!"

Right okay, but do you really?

Let's take a step back for a second and consider the details.

Is obtaining six pack abs actually your goal?

I use six pack abs as an example because it’s super easy to understand in this context, but this idea can be applied to any goal you may have.

So let's break it down, in order to achieve a six pack you probably have to:

  • have a consistent workout routine (5-7 days a week) consisting of heavy compound lifts and isolated core work
  • have a super clean diet with minimal sugar and sodium and be in a caloric deficit
  • drink lots of water and avoid alcohol consumption

If you currently have a routine of consuming ice cream every night and don’t have a consistent workout routine and you’re unwilling to give up on these routines, you either don’t ACTUALLY want a six pack OR the goal is currently too out of reach.

If you’re unable to take ACTION towards this goal, you probably don’t actually want it, and that’s okay.

Also, consider this: how much of this goal has been curated for you by society’s ridiculous misogynistic standards?
Do you feel you need [insert goal here] in order to be happy? Has society pressured you into these thought patterns? It's important to ask yourself, are these actually my goals or have I been conditioned into tinking they should be my goals

This is just some food for thought as we enter the new year and inevitably create goals.

What are your current goals? Are you willing to take action towards them even if that means stepping outside your comfort zone? Feel free to share below.
