The Secrets Of The Six-Pack!

Defined abs draw in the eye like no other muscle group. To get them on your photo feed this summer, you have two choices: Take Photoshop classes, or get serious about your training and diet. You know the right answer.

For far too long, we've been tricked into thinking that abdominal training has to be visually absurd in order to be effective. If you weren't on your back doing your best imitation of a possessed Barcalounger, you were quivering atop an inverted Bosu ball, posing an imminent threat to yourself and anyone within 10 feet of you.

Want to know a secret? It doesn't have to be this way. The more that researchers and coaches learn about how the core really works, the clearer it becomes that the way to strong, defined abs is to train them like any other muscle group: by training hard with good form, a strong foundation in anatomy, and a principled approach to nutrition.

In this cutting-edge guide to getting cut, we offer up our science-backed approach to using the core's natural functions to build a midsection that can take a punch and look the part while doing it. You'll learn about the simple lifestyle choices that make the difference between washboard and smooth-as-a-board. A pro fitness model shares his training and diet tips for building a sustainable six-pack that you can enjoy year-round. And a certified strength coach offers up a full-body strength program built around the world's simplest ab device: a single heavy dumbbell!

It's OK if you keep this info to yourself, but good luck keeping that new midsection under wraps!

Yes, we do it all the time. Whenever we publish multiple articles on a related topic at the same time, we house them together on what's called a landing page, which is what you see here. It's a compilation of five separate articles on ab training.

It's simply a web-friendly way of organizing content. One example: If we didn't use landing pages, we couldn't present a free "daily trainer." There would be no Get Swole, no Shortcut to Size/Shred, no LiveFit, no MFT28, etc.

Not exactly true. The diet is a key factor, and it can be done without cardio (just diet and weight training). Weight training focused on your abdominal muscles will help build them up and add thickness so the cuts are deeper when your bf gets low enough to see them.

It takes time, dedication and the right information, things many people just don't have.
....Speaking of which, this might be why they consolidate the information so it takes less time to review...just a thought.

Yea i totally agree with you said. I mentioned cardio because to rip that lower abs is the most difficult and for this to happen your overall bodyfat should be low.
