Male Abs

Nov 22, 2007
Are male abs so different from female abs? Well, in two words, yes and no. Male abs are different from female abs in one way, but in the basic physical sense they are the same. In case you hadn't noticed, female bodies are configured differently male bodies and this is for a reason - childbearing. This means that everything associated with the female body will affect the female abs, and the same applies for male abs.

Most women have more percentage of body fat when compared to their male counterparts, not to mention the little fact that they aren't as able to get larger muscle definition.

It's unfair, and it might seem sexist and chauvinistic, but unfortunately that's life, so it is something that you will have to come to grips with, no two words about it. Men will have an easier time of it when it comes to defining their abs, and women will have to work harder.

Don't get me wrong, the muscle groups are the same for both men and women, and in essence there is nothing different between the male abs and the female abs, except the little matter of genetics, hormones and body fat.

The male abs are also easier to sculpt into a six pack, and not as many women as they would like, are able to get a six pack. Most will have to settle for something that is close to a six pack, or which can simply be defined as a flat stomach.

Women are more prone to getting firmer flatter abs, but unless you can lose the belly fat which tends to accumulate so readily, you will find that it is hard to even notice your washboard stomach.

No matter how much you might despise the flare of your hips, or how much you might dislike that saggy tummy you get, you can't deny that it's not the same thing as a man's beer belly. The two things are completely different if only you take the time to look properly.

Indeed the saggy abdominal section that many women seem to sport is the bane of their lives and the one thing that doesn't seem to be go down no matter how hard you try. Are male abs like that? I think not! The beer belly is far easier to get rid of than the saggy tummy that women have to suffer from. This means that women will have to work twice as hard at getting rid of it than a man will have to.

But there is no need to become discouraged. A little more application and dedication on your part to getting rid of the belly fat and getting better defined abs, or even a six pack, and you will find that your very female abs are on par with any of the well cut male abs that you come across.
