Perfect Abs, Cutting Up, And A Kick A$$ Cardio Workout!

The secret to cutting up is cardio. The more you do, the more fat you'll burn, but don't get me wrong - you still gotta do your weight training.

By: Bryan Kenny

Article Summary:
  • Martial arts teach discipline, self respect and respect for others.
  • The cutting up diet is similar to the bulking up diet.
  • I find when cutting up, circuit training works great.
  • There's really no such thing as perfect abs because when trained correctly, and if your body fat is low enough, then trust me - they will look impressive.

    Very few people have what I would call 'textbook' abs, because the abdominal muscles are actually one flat hunk of muscle tissue, and the thing that gives people this 6-pack' look is this elastic-type tissue that runs across the muscle.

    So, this elastic-type tissue stays pretty much the same size as long as your abs don't get too big. The bigger your abdominals get, the deeper the grooves - but if your abs start to get too big, then this elastic-like tissue will expand. So, it's important to keep in mind the intensity of your ab workouts.

    Now about those 'textbook' abs: the only people that have those are the people whose elastic-like tissue isn't crooked.

    dot Cutting Up: dot

      So, it's just the beginning of spring. I don't know about all of you, but I've just started the cutting up phase, and I'm already impressed with how much fat I've lost in just a short period of time.

      The cutting up diet is similar to the bulking up diet. When cutting up, you eat 5-6 small meals a day, and with the bulk up diet you eat 5-6 medium sized meals a day.

      The 'secret' to cutting up is cardio. The more you do, the more fat you'll burn, but don't get me wrong - you still gotta do your weight training.

      I find when cutting up, circuit training works great. It keeps your heart rate up, then after your circuit is done you heart is still racing and jumping on a treadmill will only make it go faster.
