I was thinking about going to gym in morning for cardio type exercises and then in evening do some weight training, my main goal is to get 6 pack and get ripped. Do you think going to the gym twice a day, 6 days a week will be best?


weight : 183 pounds (83 kg)

height: 5 foot 7 inch (1.70 m)

I started to gym when I was in high school and then on & off but now I haven't been to gym for like 8 months and just started again, I have been going to gym twice a day but that time my diet was shit.

Make sure that if you're going at least 6 days per week you have at least a day or two of rest on the weightlifting. Your body needs the rest.

The concept behind cardio in the morning is the lack of carbs in your body prior to eating breakfast will result in fat burn. You should be getting at least 45 minutes of exercise per day no matter what.

Make sure you get enough sleep and don't starve yourself on the calories. I suggest using a food tracker like or even pen and paper to keep track.

Interestingly, I have recently started a similar program.

If you want "to get 6 pack and get ripped" then you probably need to focus on lowering your body fat. Morning (fasted) runs, as siouxfan45 has said, are a good idea.

To get the six pack I'd more or less ignore situps and go for things like rounds of Thai kicks on a heavy bag, and cable work - things that work rotationally or diagonally across your abdomen as that ought to pull it all into shape.

And (sadly maybe) lay off the booze.
