How do I get six-pack or washboard abs?
The first thing you need to understand is this: We all have six-pack abs. Six-packs aren't 'created' by doing ab exercises, they already exist. The reason most of us can't see our abs is because they're covered by a layer of fat. What this means is that:
- Doing ab exercises to achieve a six-pack is an impossible goal
- The only way to see your six-pack is to reduce your body fat
- The best way to reduce your body fat is with cardio, strength training and a healthy, low-calorie diet
This doesn't mean that ab exercises serve no purpose--strong abs support your spine and protect your back, especially when you focus on building core strength. However, keep in mind that your ab workout is just one part of a complete program when it comes to getting a six-pack.
