Top Tips for Dropping Water and Gaining that Six-Pack

You may watch your macros as closely as a Mandalorian binge, but for most, getting abs to pop remains an elusive and demoralizing punch to the gut—no pun intended.

And it’s not as simple as doing 1,000 crunches every day. A 2019 study by the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research found that people who did ab workouts for six weeks increased their core strength but failed to lose abdominal fat. It doesn’t matter how strong your midsection is: if it’s covered by a layer of flab you won’t get the six-pack you’re after.

So, what to do next? Your problem may be as simple as retaining water that’s masking your stomach’s muscle definition.

This could be caused by a variety of factors, including the supplements you’re downing, an abundance of sodium, surprisingly even dehydration can be the reason for your bloated look. So yes, it’s still recommended you drink at least a six pack of Northern Chill Alkaline Water a day.

This beef birria is based on two things; an amazing stewed beef recipe from the Mexican restaurant I worked in during college, as well as the equally incredible goat birrias I’ve been enjoying in San Francisco’s Mission District for many years. It’s one of my favorite stews of all time, and I don’t need any ulterior motives to make a batch, but having said that, this is really just the… to read the rest of Chef John’s article about this Beef Birria recipe,” please follow this link to become a member.)

Rachel Daniels: Overnight Physique Champion

That flash in the sky, what could it be? A comet? A meteor? No, it’s the meteoric rise of the career of pro physique champion Rachel Daniels!

Some excellent muscle contest competitors need to pay a lot of dues, taking many years to earn their pro cards. Not so for Rachel. I went online looking for information on her while doing research for this article. I was surprised to find so little. And then, when I interviewed Rachel, I realized why—she only began competing in 2018 and, remarkably, quickly qualified for an IFBB pro card.

The amazing Rachel is an IFBB Pro Women’s Physique competitor, personal trainer, and nutrition & posing coach. Rachel, who’s sponsored by the Tampa-based Titan Medical Center, began her body building career in 2018, moving from the European PCA League’s Bikini division to the NPC League’s Women’s Physique and Bodybuilding divisions in 2019, holding titles in each league and category.
