Introduction: Aesthetix Sixpack Abs
The reason you’re reading this right now is that you’re sick and tired of looking down and not being satisfied with the size and look of your tummy, am I right? In that case, welcome to Aesthetix Sixpack Abs.
Firstly, let’s be honest. You most likely have too much fat, you don’t have the Killer Sixpack
Abs you desire and you’re fed up with it. You want to change. The great news is that you’ve made the right decision by reading this book.
Only one thing works in life and that is hard work! But it's not anywhere near as hard as you think. It's a case of seeing through hype and forcing yourself to accept reality as it is and to then go forward with a positive attitude and make an effort.
A simple diet and a bit of exercise can net you unbelievable results! Most people tend to quit when they don't see results right away but it takes time for results to happen as nothing is immediate.
This is where willpower is required, to help you stay on track. If you can stay focused on your goal to lose weight and get in shape, you will succeed.
But have you ever wondered why you want that body so badly in the first place?
Ask the average guy to tell you how to get rock-hard abs and he will boast about the newest and fanciest "abdominal burning" exercise he just learned that you should definitely try.
Or... more likely, he will tell you to do 50 repetitions of abdominal crunches, situps or leg raises... you know, the usual stuff that everybody believes will give them six-pack abs.
Oh yeah, let's not forget the tiny detail that the "average guy" doesn't have rock hard abs, let alone Killer Sixpack Abs.
So, stop doing what everybody else is telling you to do, in order to get those hard abs, and start doing what really works.

1. Presuppositions On Sixpack Abs
According to the media, the fitness industry, and every other industry that has to do with reaching out to the masses,
Sixpacks are the thing to have!
And we have come to expect sixpacks from those industries.
When we are relaxing at home watching TV shows and we see someone take their shirt off, and they are overweight and don’t have a sixpack, it’s not uncommon for at least one person in the room to say, “Ew.” This scenario happens all the time, and most of the time the person saying it doesn’t even have a sixpack themselves.
The point of this is that the media, the TV, movies, magazines, and everything else that’s designed for mass consumption, is reorienting our views for what’s normal in our society.
If we listened to the media, everyone on earth would be weak and inferior. Why? Because most people don’t have sixpack abs. Don’t believe me? Think of how the media portrays people of power or influence. They almost always have a sixpack.
Every warrior in the movie ‘300’ had a sixpack and even the Twilight movies show sixpack abs almost completely throughout. And that’s just counting the men. Nowadays it’s not uncommon for women celebrities to sport a sixpack, too.
That’s because sixpacks signify power, sexiness and our media is letting us know that having them means that we’re special. We’re not just common; we’re someone to be respected. That is how the media depicts people with sixpack abs.
But the truth is, having a sixpack is healthy, too.

2. Having Abs Is Good for Your Health
Having Aesthetix Sixpack Abs shows that you have strong abdominal muscles. One of the best effects of strengthening those muscles is you essentially help your back perform better. Your posture will be better, you will walk straighter, and you’ll have fewer if any, back problems in the future.
If you have a bad back, and you follow the information in this eBook, your back pain could literally disappear. It’s amazing how getting in shape can cure many of our ailments.
When you get your sixpack, you will feel healthy for the first time in a long time.
But probably the most important feature of getting Aesthetix Sixpack Abs is that it has such a great effect on your attitude and overall mental health. Around the world, there are a record number of people suffering from depression. We’re also getting fatter by the year. Coincidence or not?
I know when I gain a few pounds I feel pretty bad. The world isn’t just gaining a few pounds, however, it’s facing obesity on an epidemic level.
So it’s no wonder the world is depressed. If you feel down more times than you feel good, you just might be able to get out of your funk by finally attaining a sixpack.
While I’m not saying that having a sixpack will cure mental illness, not by any means, I’m merely saying that having a sixpack will improve your outlook on life exponentially.

3. Why Are Six Pack Abs So Difficult to achieve?
The majority of the western world is fat
Most people don’t have Killer Sixpack Abs, and that’s obvious. Every holiday we hold, no matter your religion, typically revolves around food. And when there’s abundant food, there’s usually alcohol, too. It’s no wonder our society is so gluttonous.
But it may be more than just the availability of food. The Italians also celebrate with food, but they’re not known to be a very overweight culture. What could be causing us all to gain weight? And what could be holding you back from your dreams of attaining a sixpack?
A moment ago I mentioned that the world is getting increasingly depressed as they get fatter. Some scientists think that putting on weight is one of our body’s defense mechanisms.
Some studies have concluded that children who are sexually abused gain weight as they grow so as to hide their bodies. The fat they put on essentially acts as a buffer between them and the rest of the world.
This may sound like a lot of psychosomatic mumbo jumbo but lots of studies have proven its relevance. What we think and how we feel affects how our bodies change and develop. By relaxing and telling your body that you really want to achieve this goal, you’ll be more likely to reach it once and for all.
Most people are looking for that magic pill. That term ‘magic pill’, I hate to use it because it’s used so often. But it perfectly describes what people are looking for in their quests to lose weight.
It’s not easy. In fact, it can be downright hard at times. But you know what? Most people wouldn’t know because they quit prematurely, before the plan their on even has time to produce any action.

4. Lose it to Gain it
If you can't see your ab muscles, it's not because you haven't found that "magic bullet" ab-sculpting exercise.
In fact, it may not even be because you don't have any ab muscles. (If you have been working out even a little bit over the years, you may already have some ab development.)
But, you'll never be able to see your abs - even if they are the most developed and sculpted abs in the world...if they are hiding under and a nice, comfy layer of belly fat.
So, the very first rule of getting hard abs is to lose the soft flab that's covering your ab muscles.
There is no magic formula for losing belly fat. The only way to do it is with consistent, regular exercise and a healthy diet.
Cutting down on sugar alone can help you lose some pounds quickly. That includes sugary foods, desserts, and drinks.
Losing your belly fat can make you look harder and leaner, instantly...even if you don't do any abdominal exercises.
Besides, losing that belly flab will benefit you and many other ways, as well as dramatically lower your chances of developing several diseases and health risks.
5. Hydration is a must
Why We Need Water
Our bodies are estimated to be about 60 to 70% water. Blood is mostly water, and our muscles, lungs, and brain all contain a lot of water. Water is needed to regulate body temperature and to provide the means for nutrients to travel to all our organs. Water also transports oxygen to our cells, removes waste, and protects our joints and organs.
When we exercise, we build up heat in working muscles causing our internal temperatures to rise. During hard exercise, your muscles can generate 20 times more heat than when you are at rest.
We cool ourselves by perspiring. It is this evaporation of sweat from our skin that helps us maintain a lower core body temperature.
When there is a lot of moisture in the air, evaporation isn't an effective cooling means and we keep sweating and losing fluids in order to try and stay comfortable.
If you did not sweat, you could cook yourself to death. A body temperature higher than 41°C/ 106°F damages the cells. At 42°C/107.6°F, cell protein coagulates (like egg whites do when they cook).
So why do experts suggest that we drink lots of water and why is it considered so essential to a healthy life? Well first off it helps to avoid dehydration and it keeps the kidneys functioning well by assisting in the elimination of waste products plus it helps to increase your metabolism which helps you to lose weight.
But aside from listening to what experts tell you, you should make it a priority to listen to your body first and foremost. When you are thirsty, then naturally you will drink water to replenish yourself.
Depending on the kind of work that you do, you should try to get into the habit of drinking water regularly or even better, keeping a water bottle handy, especially on really hot days since the heat causes you to sweat and your body loses water and thus you will need to replenish yourself.
This is why water is so important in our lives. Not only is it zero calories, but it is also basically the best source for quenching your thirst AND the healthiest.
You may consider adding water to all of your meals over time and doing away with fruit drinks and sodas ultimately as it will help reduce your caloric intake and you'll also feel much better without the added sugar that comes with the other drinks.
6. Adequate Protein
Make sure you consume adequate protein during the day. The term protein is derived from the Greek word proteios, meaning "primary or of first importance" This is the foundation block for a healthy diet.
Every tissue in your body is made from PROTEIN (ie; muscle, hair, skin, nails). Proteins are the building blocks of muscle tissue and cells. Without it, building muscle and burning fat efficiently would be impossible.
Nobody should consume more than 3kg of protein per lean body mass. For people who are not as active should consume aprox. 1.5kg to 1.8kg per lean muscle mass. Protein should be balanced out in correct ratio with the other nutrients to best suit your needs or goals in sport or weight loss.
How Much Protein Should I Consume?
At this point in time there will be lots of conjecture and differing thoughts when confronted with the question “How much protein should I consume. I remember one day asking a professional bodybuilder “how much protein do you consume on a normal day?”. And he replied “320 grams per day, You've got to eat to grow and you've got to eat to diet. Protein is paramount in all seasons”. He was consuming a ratio of 75% protein, 15% Carbs and 10% good fats
Now when looking at this example this is not a normal person but a competitive bodybuilder, so although protein requirements are not that high the importance of protein to your diet can not be understated.
So what is advocated for General Health and Weight Control is a ratio of Protein 40% Carbohydrates 40% and Fats 20% (good fats mostly)
So how do I get this protein in?
Good Examples of Protein Are:
Eggs, Chicken breast (cooked, skinless and boneless), Turkey (cooked, skinless and boneless), Lean (90% lean) red meats, rump or sirloin, Tuna (canned or fresh), 100% Whey Concentrate or Isolate Protein Powder
An added bonus to consuming adequate protein is that it keeps you fuller for longer and reduces the cravings to splurge out and eat bad food.
In essence, the need for protein in your daily dietary requirements is not only of importance but is almost a must do.
If you are serious about revealing your sixpack abs it is imperative that you add some cardiovascular exercise into your workout routine.
The main reason your abs are not visible is there is a layer of fat covering them and the most effective way of burning that fat is to do some sort of cardiovascular exercise combined with healthy eating. It is this importance that makes cardio exercise a must to have Aesthetix Sixpack Abs.
Cardiovascular exercise is beneficial to you by developing the lungs to be stronger by boosting levels of oxygen to the body and the heart by helping it to use that oxygen more efficiently.
2 Main Styles Of Cardiovascular Exercise.
No matter what type of exercise you choose to do. There are 2 main styles that all cardio exercises come from. And that is AEROBIC and ANAEROBIC.
The word aerobic translates to with oxygen, or with air. An exercise that is less intense and longer in duration is aerobic. With aerobic sessions, an athlete implements the same big muscle area in a steady motion for between fifteen and thirty. A maximum heart rate of about sixty to eighty % is the goal to maintain.
Swimming, cycling, light running, and walking are some examples of aerobic exercises. These exercises should be able to be done without someone breathing hard. If you cannot carry on a short conversation while working out, you may be moving it up a level by anaerobically exercising.
Muscle groups get extra blood and oxygen from the body during an aerobic exercise session. Halting all of a sudden in the midst of an aerobic session is not a wise move. This can lead to dizziness and muscular cramping.
After a fairly intense workout, a cool off session is usually a wise idea. Moving in place for a few minutes is a good idea if somebody gets too exhausted during a workout session. Anaerobic exercise is different from aerobic in that it is usually shorter in time span and greater in intensity.
With anaerobic or high intensity cardio, the body wears down faster and muscles build more quickly. Football, soccer, skiing, basketball, and weight lifting are sports considered anaerobic exercises. Sprinting or running is another example.
Anaerobic exercise has been noted to be more effective in increasing the speed of your metabolism thus burning more throughout the day. It's proven that high intensity cardio exercise has your metabolism burning calories hours after you have finished exercising
Which One Is Better?
Have you ever wondered which cardio exercises are best for burning off extra body fat? Is walking (low intensity) better or running (high intensity) better for burning body fat?
Well, both low and high intensity exercises will help you burn off body fat. The question is which is more effective and burn more body fat. What is your fat burning zone?
When scientists first reported that during intensive exercises, your body burns glycogen, which is a form of stored carbohydrates stored in your liver and muscles for energy and during low intensity exercises, your body burn body fat, everyone suddenly changes their workout routines to perform low intensity exercises to burn body fat.
Does it work? Obviously it does not work because there are still so many fat people around although they are working out with low intensity exercises, isn’t it? Why is that so?
Well, the scientists were right when they said that our bodies burn more body fat during low intensity exercises like walking or a leisurely swim. But during a high intensity exercise like running, our bodies burn a lot more calories. Even if some of the calories burnt are from glycogen, we will still burn many fat calories as well.
To add icing to the cake, when your store of glycogen is low, the carbs from your meal you eat later gets converted into glycogen to fill up the store and will not be converted to body fat when left unused for energy.
Furthermore, high intensity cardio exercises crank up your metabolism even after your workout is done. This means that your body will continue to burn body fat hours after you have left the gym. This effect is almost nonexistent in low intensity cardio or aerobic workout. Accumulatively, your body burns up many many more calories during and after high intensity cardio exercises than lower intensive ones.
You can inject high intensity exercises to your cardio workout by introducing some interval training. You can walk briskly for 5 minutes, then breaking into a jog for another 5 minutes. Then walking briskly again until you caught your breath and then sprint for a minute before walking again for another minute. From this point, alternate between a sprint and a walk, a minute each and do this for the next 20 minutes and you are done.
This type of exercise is without a doubt an essential part of getting six pack abs even though it may be a little hard at first. A good body requires regular cardiovascular sessions and is a continuous process. People who have already achieved good cardiovascular condition can keep this by exercising a minimum of three times a week.
