Get Taylor Lautner’s Washboard Abs

By Dr. Bradley Frederick
Hollywoodnews.com:
Getting Taylor Lautner’s washboard abs isn’t far out of reach, according to Jordan Yuam, Lautner’s personal trainer and founder of Jordan’s Virtual Fit Club. To get a cut stomach, you need to eat right, focus on doing the exercises properly and give your body time to recover.
EAT WITH YOUR ABS IN MIND
“Eating is 90% of getting the abs to come in,” says Yuam. Its true no matter how strong or defined the muscles are, if they are covered by a layer of fat no high intensity training program alone will work. To get a lean muscle mass, you must put down the cheeseburgers and alcohol, stay away from processed foods and try substituting green tea for your coffee.
Recently on Oprah, Dr Perricone stated “if you just replaced coffee with green tea, you could lose 10 pounds in six weeks.” Green Tea helps stabilize your blood sugar, is a powerful antioxidant and will help burn fat.
Food preservatives, diet sodas, and processed foods increase toxicity and lead to weight gain, while interfering with weight loss. “Eat foods that are organic, especially organic meat,” Yuam said.
“If you eat the right foods your body will improve its metabolic rate,” says Yuam. In Fact, restricting calories, especially protein, will only slow down your metabolism and won’t help you loss weight over the long term. Muscles are made of protein and the more you have, the more calories you burn, so don’t skip the protein.
The best way to monitor your food intake is to keep a daily food and weight journal, and then you create accountability for the food choices you’re making.
BREATHE AND FOCUS FOR A FASTER SIX PACK
When exercising, breathing and focusing on working your abdominal muscles will help your six-pack appear faster. Slowly and fully exhale when contracting the abdominals in each exercise. During his workouts, Lautner honed in on his abs for about 15-20 minutes every other day with intense concentration and Yaum made sure he focused.

The exercises that Lautner did to create his six-pack were tailored especially for his body type. You can try a few of them yourself:
1) The Hanging Leg Raise. Grab a chin up bar overhand and hang with your feet together and your knees bent slightly. Then, bend your knees to lift your thighs all the way up to your chest. When the front of your thighs reach […]
