Fitness Tips for Men

Since last week we reposted some Fitness tips for Women, we thought this week we’d post Fitness tips for Men!  This blog comes from ABC News,  and we’re delighted with all the tips.  Our favorite is the directive to eat more.  Nice.

Six-pack abs. Who doesn’t want them? It should come as little surprise that one of the most asked questions that personal trainers get from guys is: “How can I get six-pack abs fast?”

Sure, a flat stomach is great. But it does not indicate good health. Many individuals who have a thinner physique are naturally thin because of their genetic makeup. They burn fat quickly, while the bodies of others are slower at this.

Moreover, whether a man has six-pack abs or a flat stomach tells you nothing about his flexibility, cardiovascular health, strength, digestive system, immune system, respiratory system or central nervous system. In short, if you see a thin person, don’t assume he or she is in shape.

So, if you are a man and you would like to be in shape, what goal should you seek to achieve besides the coveted washboard stomach? After working more than 17 years in the fitness industry and coaching a number of individuals on diet and other aspects of health, I can offer four simple steps:

First, when eating, eat like a man.

Second, when exercising, don’t be delicate; explore and discover.

Third, keep your blood sugar levels stable.

And last but not least, pay attention to the balance between your carbohydrate and protein intake.
