Where Are My Abs?

Have you been doing endless crunches and planks but still can't see your six pack?! Building a six pack isn't easy and it's not all about incorporating abdominal exercises into your workout regime. 

In short, to have a visible six pack, you need to have a low body fat percentage so that your abs can be seen. If you have too much subcutaneous body fat covering your abdominals, you won't be able to see your six pack. 

To get your abs showing, you'll have to lose the extra fat gradually through a combination of cardio, nutrition and resistance training. You'll need to combine all of these elements to get the results you want. Consistency is key!

Make sure that when you are using resistance training for your abdominals, you are mixing up the exercises. Incorporate different exercises so you can hit all of the muscles from all angles. Also, look at mixing up your rep ranges and weights. One abdominal session you could stimulate your abs with a bodyweight, high rep range of 15-30 reps. Then the next session, look at incorporating weights with a low rep range of 8-12 reps. This will keep your abdominals guessing!

Remember, to get your abdominals visible you'll need to focus on cardio, nutrition and diverse resistance training!
