How To Get Visible Abdominals: The Truth

Let me start this off by stating that you ALREADY have abdominals.

Where you at?

Training abs directly is less effective than losing body fat to make your abs visible.

You can train abs 365 days in a row and could end up seeing literally no difference.

Although a lot might be happening underneath that layer of fat, if your body fat percentage is too high you’ll never see them sprout like pretty flowers in summertime.

They may well be growing in size and strength but they will be hidden away under a layer of fat.

Training abs will NOT directly burn extra fat away from your stomach.

Guys and girls in the 30%+ body fat percentage category could well have a defined set of abdominals underneath there layers of fat.

But they will never be visible unless they start losing body fat.

How To Actually Get Visible Abdominals

The reality is, if you do have excess body fat you will need to be in a calorific deficit. (More calories going out, than coming in).

Easiest Way To Lose Weight: 1 Simple Method

If you have a low body fat percentage already and your abs are not very visible, then they will need directly training.

When training abs, you should start with simple body weight exercises concentrated on form rather than the amount you can do such as:

  • Lying leg raises
  • Sit ups
  • Planks

You should train them like any other muscle and move into weighted training once you are able to complete 2-3 sets of 20+ repetitions on these exercises.

How To Train The Abs

Train abs 3/4 times a week combined with a resistance training schedule at least 3 times a week, and get your nutrition in order.
