Getting a nice set of abs is such a misunderstood process. It’s actually a lot easier than most people think which is why most people are in a never ending quest to get that perfect six pack – it’s because they’re doing all the wrong things.

When you eat more calories than you burn, your body takes those extra calories and stores them as fat somewhere on your body. For some people, the #1 fat storage area is around the thighs and for others it might be around the stomach – it differs from person to person. Sometimes the fat is perfectly distributed around the body so it’s not as big of a concern.

If an excessive amount of fat is stored around your stomach, the reason that you’re not seeing your abs is because your body fat percentage is too high. What you need to do is create a calorie deficit (take in less calories than you burn) so that your body is forced to use its fat stores for energy. After a few weeks of doing this, you’ll notice that your abs will start to show.

You first step is to figure out how many calories you burn each day. Use this calculator http://calorieneedscalculator.com for an estimate. Now you need to increase the amount of calories you burn by exercising more and decreasing the amount of calories you eat. Cut out junk food such as fast food, candy and sugar. Eat foods that are high in fiber: bread and pasta made from 100% whole wheat, brown rice, oats, fruits and vegetables.

You shouldn’t ignore targeting your abs with sit ups, leg raises and twists but doing hundreds of sit ups won’t do anything about the layer of fat that is covering them. Cardio and calorie restriction should be your main focus. If you need more details on getting a six pack, visit The Guide to Getting Nice Abs – http://www.straightabs.com

^^Dude can you read???? She said she is a tiny girl, and you just have to be willing to believe that. Anyways, SITUPS SUCK ASS!!! Most useless thing you could possibly be doing. Just look up best ab workouts, but I will list you the way I got a 6pack (not a lowsy 4 pack that you have) within 2 weeks, by just doing 3 sets of 40 with the bicycle and 3 sets of 30 with the leg lifts. Also, if this is too easy (which it wont be) or if you just want a bigger challenge (more likely) do 2×2min planks and 2×1min lazy chair.

i would suggest cardio… cardio plays a big roll in seeing your abs. i usually do a 3 step workout for abs. i do 3 exercises with say 25reps. then immediatly do them again with fewer reps. then again with even fewer reps. i suggest researching some exercises and following a well planned diet.

Abs are made in the kitchen, not in the gym.
If you are going to the gym and work out and do the activity necessary for getting the 6 pack, you are doing everything right on that part. Your diet will need to change to shed the excess body fat to see the abs. Eat 5-6 meals a day and stay 15% – 20% below you total daily energy expenditur (TDEE). You have to find out what your tdee is based on your body weight and bodyfat. Cycle higher calorie day every 4th or 5th day.
Its not easy, and you have to be very diciplined about what you eat (writing down your daily food consumption for a week helps)

Abs=Combination of diet and exercises.That’s all to it.

some exercises

Ball Crunch
Lie with the ball resting under the mid/lower back and place hands behind the head or across the chest. Contract your abs to lift your the torso off the ball, pulling the bottom of your ribcage down toward your hips. As you curl up, keep the ball stable.

Crunch & Reach
Begin with body straight over the ball, light weight extended behind you (not shown). Contract the abs to lift and bring the weight over the head, crunching up and twisting to the right, contracting the right side of waist. Repeat for all reps and then switch sides.

Modified Plank
Begin by placing elbows on the floor and resting body on the knees. Pull the abs tight to hold your body in a straight line from head to knees without sagging in the middle, eyes looking naturally forward. Hold this position for as long as you can, relax and repeat 3 or more times.

Knee Tucks
Start in plank position on the ball, with the ball under the shins/ankles. Roll the ball towards you with your feet, tightening the abs into a crunch.

Woodchops
Attach one end of a resistance band to something sturdy and wrap the band around your hand a few times for the right tension. Grasp the band in both hands and begin in a lunge position, reaching down with the arms Keeping the arms straight the entire time, rotate and lift the body towards the other side while sweeping the arms on a diagonal. Return to start and repeat before moving onto the other side.

Hip Extension on the Ball
Lie on the floor with feet heels propped on ball. Keeping abs tight, slowly lift your hips off the floor (squeezing the buttocks) until body is in a straight line. Hold for a few seconds and lower

Ball Taps
Sit on the ball with strong abs and straight spine, hands behind the head. Contract your abs and lift the right foot, tapping it on a medicine ball in front of you. Lower and repeat with the other foot, alternating sides. Use your abs to keep your balance.

How to Work Your Abs

* You can effectively work your abs with 3 non-consecutive workouts a week
* Do 1-3 sets of 12-16 reps of each exercise. If that’s too easy, make sure you’re doing each exercise correctly and using perfect form. You can add a dumbbell or plate to crunches to add difficulty.
