What do you need to do in order to reveal six pack abs? Instead of focusing on how to get a six pack, we should rather think about steps which need to be taken to reveal them.
First of all, you need to get rid of that excess fat. As you might’ve noticed, I don’t really have that much fat, which is partly genetics, but mostly due to the way I train and eat.
The most important aspect of your journey to six pack abs is your diet or nutrition. You need to get your body fat percentage down to a certain point and only then will you have a chance to see your abs.
Secondly, forget about crunches. There are much better options for increasing the size and tone of your abs – like hanging leg raises or ab wheel rollouts.
Something you don’t hear that often is the fact that muscle control exercises are really helpful for getting pretty abs. It’s not just the fat behind your skin that’s problematic, but also bad stuff inside that a lot of people have which negatively affects digestion and health. When you manage to get rid of that, you’ll lose fat quicker and improve the appearance of abdominal muscles. One of the best exercises for this is abdominal vacuum, where you blow all the air from your lungs and then suck in the stomach. The other good one is to simply flex your abs, as shown in the video above.
