We All Have The Ability To Get Six Pack Abs

Jan 10, 2008
Why Are Six Pack Abs So Rare?

It is pretty rare to see someone in the real world with great six pack abs. For the most part you can see great 6 pack abs in movies and magazines, but you don't see guys or gals with six packs in the gym. It is almost to the point where people think that 6 pack abs were only meant for movie stars or actors. People need to quit thinking that way, if they ever want to get a great washboard stomach.

Toned Abs are More Impressive Than Any Heavy Weights Lifted in the Gym

There are many, many more guys who can bench 315 pounds, than there are guys with a tight midsection. Many women can jog over 6 miles, but not many women have 6 pack abs. If you want to be exceptional, than having a defined midsection is the way to go. If you are spending any time in the gym at all and you don't have a 6 pack, then you are spending your time doing the wrong things. You will need to shift your focus if you want great muscle tone in this area of your body.

Your Entire Body Will Get Toned on Your Path to Getting 6 Pack Abs

Want to be guaranteed that your entire body will be defined? Then focus on getting six pack abs. Seriously, if you get to the point where you have a defined midsection then your entire body will look great. Have you ever seen a woman with a defined midsection with flabby arms. It won't happen! Your abdominal region is kind of the barometer of how fit you are.

Diet and Cardio Are the Main Key to an Amazing Midsection

You don't get great abs from crunches and sit ups. I haven't done any type of crunching movement in over 5 years and my abs look phenomenal. Ab exercises certainly will help your abs look a tiny bit better, but focus your time on the thing that gives you the best results. I would say 90% of great abs is from diet and cardio. I wouldn't even bother doing crunches if your body fat is high, spend that extra 15 minutes and add that to your cardio workout.

Crunches and Ab Exercises Don't Play a Significant Role In Getting 6 Pack Abs

I don't think you need to directly target the abs to get a great mid section, but if you want pick one and hit it for 4-5 sets. The majority of your time should be spent on a bit of lifting for the rest of your body and intense cardio. As far as choices of cardio go, running on a treadmill or running outside is the way to go. Your abs work harder with running, because there is a certain amount of balancing involves between your legs and upper body. If you are on an exercise bike, your abs don't have to work at all. Your body is being stabilized by the seat.

Summary: You probably just need to increase the cardio and decrease the calories if you don't have six pack abs. I know it sounds almost too simple, but believe me it will work for you.
