Whether you’re aiming to achieve your fitness goals or simply want to look good in a swimsuit, getting a sculpted set of six-pack abs is a goal shared by many. Getting a six-pack requires dedication and hard work however, you don’t need to starve yourself or become an expert athlete to do as such. Instead, a few modifications to your diet and lifestyle can be enough to produce serious, long-lasting results.

Here are 4 simple ways to achieve six-pack abs quickly and safely.

  1. Try High-Intensity Interval Training

High-intensity interval training, or HIIT, is a form of exercise that involves alternating between intense bursts of activity and short recovery periods. HIIT keeps your heart rate up and increases fat burning.  Adding HIIT into your routine can boost weight loss and make it even easier to get six-pack abs. One of the simplest ways to try HIIT is to switch between walking and sprinting for 20–30 seconds at a time on the treadmill or running track. You can also try alternating between high-intensity exercises like jumping jacks, mountain climbers and burpees with a short break in between.

Moove has a variety of HIIT Group Fitness Classes you can attend. Our Moove Warrior classes will ensure your heart rate stays up. Les Mills GRIT classes is also a great addition to your current HITT exercise routine

  1. Exercise Your Abdominal Muscles

The rectus abdominis is the long muscle that extends vertically along the length of your abdomen. Although most well-known as the muscle that creates the appearance of the six-pack, it’s also necessary for breathing, coughing and bowel movements. Other abdominal muscles include the internal and external obliques and the transverse abdominis. Exercising these muscles is key to increasing muscle mass and achieving six-pack abs. However, keep in mind that abdominal exercises alone are unlikely to decrease belly fat. If you running out of ideas on what ABS exercise to do, Moove has got your covered with Killer ABS classes which is perfect to attend everyday after you floor workout.

  1. Do more cardio

Regularly incorporating cardio into your routine can help you burn extra fat and speed your way to a set of six-pack abs. Studies show that cardio is especially effective when it comes to reducing belly fat, which can help make your abdominal muscles more visible. Activities like running, walking, biking, swimming or engaging in your favourite Moove cardio group fitness classes are just a few easy ways to fit cardio into your day.

  1. Increase Your Protein Intake

Upping your intake of high-protein foods can help promote weight loss, fight belly fat and support muscle growth on your road to six-pack abs. Meat, poultry, eggs, seafood, dairy products, legumes, nuts and seeds are just a few examples of healthy, high-protein foods that you can add to your diet.
