Update: Results of Cutting, Ripped 8 Pack Abs Challenge

In January I published a post saying I was going
8 pack abs crazy
, my plan was to train my abs every day after my workouts
on workout days, and on rest days. I wanted to adopt the abs training style
that many fitness model use to build their abs size and cuts. My inspiration in
January was, Marc Fitt the French Canadian fitness model with killer abs. He trained
abs everyday and had probably the most cut abs I have ever seen, I wanted to
have abs like him and other great fitness
models with ripped abs

Results of Cutting
and 8 pack abs challenge:

I am proud to announce that I did not miss a single
abdominal workout in January. No matter how tired I was after a workout, I put
in that extra 10 to 15 minutes just to work those abs. I found it to be a good
fat burner as expected so I found no need to do cardio. I had said I would do
cardio if I felt I needed that extra boost to burn fat. I probably just skipped
cardio because I hate it and I am lazy when it comes to doing things I hate.
Would I have seen better results with cardio? Maybe, but I do not care as I got
good results without it anyways.
At the end of 4 weeks in Jan I was satisfied with the
results so far, when I touched my abs I could feel that I had developed them
thickness wise, it was just a matter of sweating it out to reveal the abs. The
lower abs were there when I felt them but they were still under developed when
compared to the upper abs and oblique’s.  My plan was to continue to train the way I was
training for a bit longer. I am currently still focussing on thickening the
lower abs. I will continue training abs every day until further notice.
What I was eating
As far as my diet is concerned there is nothing special where
that is concerned. I eat normal whole foods; I eat take aways maybe once a
month just so I remember how junk food tastes. I do not eat a lot on non
workout days; I eat most of my carbohydrates before and after my workouts. I
usually have a cup of nuts as a snack during the day but this January more
often than not I was eating bananas, apples, peaches, yoghurt and mango’s.
As I mentioned in an earlier post in Jan, this year I am
going to take supplements and see how that aids my progress. I am getting
myself some whey protein and maybe some creatine later on this month so that is
all that is going to change in my nutrition plan. I know I have lost some
weight but I have not checked the scale yet, the scale is not important for now,
what I see is the mirror is what is important.
