I’m not a doctor or anything but I can assure you from experience you DO NOT just magically gets Ab’s from crunches or any other Ab exercises… If I could get a penny for every time one of my personal training clients asked me how many crunches they needed to do to get a six-pack… I would be a millionaire! Here are some tips to help you understand how Ab’s are ACTUALLY created…
1. It is Genetics to an Extent
Yep… some people are born with the beautiful feature and some are not. Now to understand this theory.. is that the structure of the abs are genetics but everyone has abs.. It is easier for some people than others due to genetics and the number of fat cells in the body, but everybody can do it with a proper nutrition and a proper exercise program.
2. It’s What You Eat
Remember the statement you always see that says 80% nutrition and 20% working out… IT’S TRUE. (except those that are genetically gifted.) The best way of doing that is finding a well balanced healthy meal plan and remember to keep your portions under control. Just because your eating healthy food doesn’t mean you can eat double or triple the amount you would normally.
If you want to try to get a great set of Ab’s, then you have to get ride of the fat layer covering your midsection. Doesn’t matter how many crunches you do, they just won’t show. To truly expose what genetically your parents gave you, shed the fat around them and the best way to do that is adding cardio into your regime. Enough said.
