How to Build Six Pack Abs in Four Weeks

Everyone has abdominal muscles, but sometimes the abdominal muscles are hard to see, especially if you have not worked out in a while. There are many different things that you can do to build six-pack abs in four weeks, from changing your diet to performing different exercises targeted at the abdominal muscles. If you stick to a diet and exercise regimen, you will see results.

Tips

1. Eat green vegetables and veggies that have rich colors. Nonstarchy veggies are best to be eaten for main meals and snacks. According to "Work Out" host Jackie Warner, eating foods such as vegetables and eggs increase your metabolism. The sugars in fruit can prevent you from losing the weight you would like, so add protein shakes as a supplement. Warner also recommends adding 500 milliliters of organic lemon juice to your water every day because the ascorbic acid in lemons can speed up your metabolism by 33 percent.

2. Jog for 45 minutes three days a week to increase your cardiovascular strength. According to Shape Fit magazine, once you start getting results, you can jog for 20 minutes three to five times a week.

3. Perform a bent knee abdominal hip raise by laying down flat and put your hands to your side. Bend your knees and raise your feet two inches off of the floor. Move your hips and knees towards your chest while contracting your abdominal muscles for two seconds. Perform three sets of 20 repetitions.

4. Perform a finger to toes abdominal crunch by keeping your chest out and your shoulders back while you reach up with your arms and legs. Your arms and legs come back at the same time. The goal is to be able to hold your legs and arms at the top position for a few seconds before bringing them down. Perform three sets of 10 repetitions.
