6 Pack Abs – Develop and Uncover
Did you know that you already have 6 pack abs? The problem most people are up against when they set out to develop a ripped, visible 6 pack abs is that they have a layer of body fat (some thicker than others) that’s covering up the abdominal muscles. Crunches, planks, boats and sit-ups are only part of the solution to great abs. Lower body fat is truly the key to 6 pack abs.
Focusing on one single area, ABS or elsewhere will never promote fat loss in only that part of your body. Your body doesn’t work that way. This means that focusing on ab specific workouts like crunches and sit ups doesn’t do a whole lot to specifically contribute to the appearance of 6 pack abs. Hundreds of crunch will not force fat loss in only that specific area. This means that you should work on your whole body equally, not just 6 pack abs.
Basic 6 Pack Abs Recommendations
For 6 Pack Abs I Recommend:
- Intense Total Body Workouts 4 to 6 Times Per Week
- 3 Days of Solid Cardio Such As Jogging or Cycling
- 6 Pack Abs Specific Workouts 3 to 5 Days Per Week
- Ultra Clean Nutrition Daily With 1 Cheat Day Per Week

Tons of Crunches, Sit-Ups & Planks?
Sometimes a new personal training client will start a program with me and say “Can we do a lot of crunches and sit ups so I can have a 6 pack?” They (and you) might not realize that having a pronounced washboard stomach has everything to do with body fat percentages and far less to do with doing 100 crunches a day.
Your body will lose fat from workouts that increase your metabolism, This happens during your workouts but mostly during recovery (healing) which happens for 24 to 48 hours after each total body workout.
Total body workouts that send you into “Fat Burning Mode” is the answer to total body fat loss. Cardio workouts can certainly help you on your mission to lose fat in the mid-section but resistance workouts like my Long Beach Personal Training programs will work even better because countless studies show that intense resistance training works better for fat loss than cardiovascular workouts like jogging. Your best bet is to do both for a total of 5 to 6 workouts per week alternating between resistance exercises and cardio.
Always remember that a sensible meal plan will play a huge role in losing fat so you can have visible 6 Pack Abs.
