Caloric Intake

Generally… those looking to get 6 pack abs need to lower caloric intake. You should get started by paying closer attention to the foods you consume… processed foods contain far more calories than natural whole foods so it’s easy to over consume them.

Passive Caloric Output

This is the amount of calories you output without doing anything… also know as basal metabolic rate. You can get on our InBody Scanner (and get a whole load of other biometrics too!) or get an estimated BMR.

Macronutrient Balance

Know what your current balance of Protein, Carbs and Fat are… we recommend 40/30/40 as a good starting point. Check out this article about balancing them.

Active Caloric Output

Exercising burns energy, but you want to make gains not just burn energy and that is important.

Nutrient Quality

Quality is a big factor in satiety… because you and eat endless volumes of vegetables and it’s highly unlikely you’ll ever consume more calories that your goals allow for.

Exercise selection

Functional Movements are the most effective for a variety of reasons but ultimately they create the most power burn the most calories in addition to improving your physical skills.
