Myth alert!

It seems like not all the things that we heard from "experts" or overheard in the public areas are true. Perhaps the reason why we aren't not getting those perfect abs are because we aren't not doing it right. Then that would be such a terrible waste of our time. So we need to know the misconceptions and what's real to get the chiseled abs we want.

Six pack Myth 1: Abdominal muscle is different from regular muscle.

Muscle regular muscle.

Muscle is muscle. Intestinal muscle is the same lats. The only difference is the location. Intestinal muscles are not resting on a bony surface, instead it is against the gut and guts. There's no major difference whatsoever.

Six pack Myth 2: Strong abs means a powerful back.

The key to a powerful back is a balanced abdominal muscles. You can work your abs, but no more and about you're employed your other muscles throughout the day. There are heavy stress on working your abs, this heavy stress is sometimes misunderstood to be the contributor of food health. Infomercials give the fake belief that by working out only 1 part of your body will give your fitness great benefits.

Working out and exercise should not just be concerned with one part of the body. What you need is an overall body fitness to be healthy.

Six Pack Parable three : you have to coach your abs at least every other day.

Six Pack Parable four : To gain results, high repetitions are required.

Six Pack Myth 5: Hard rock abs can be attained by doing a lot of sit-ups.

Many doctors say that sit-ups and crunches are the work exercises and maybe should never be done. A common mistake done during crunches, is throwing the neck out. Crunches and sit-ups cause the abdominal muscles to be pulled to tight, this over the top pulling put stress on the neck or what is perceived as throwing the neck out. The overuse of crunch type exercises may even lead to the reduction of thoracic extension and contributes to bad posture.

Six Pack Myth 6: It takes years to get great abs.
