6-Pack Abs and the Science Behind Them

The phrase, “Abs are made in the kitchen!” actually holds a lot of truth, and we’ve all heard it, but not everyone believes it.

Before you can get that shredded 6-pack, you first need to understand how you can achieve it from a scientific viewpoint. First up, let’s understand that everyone has some form of a 6-pack. Sure, it might be hidden or shaped differently, but the amount of abdominal definition and the quality of it is reliant on a few, simple, key variables:

Body Fat Levels:-

This is the overall amount of body fat your body has. For many people, this figure is too high, and you’ll never be able to reveal your 6-pack unless this is lessened. You can have the world’s best (hardest) abs, but if your body fat content is too high, you’ll never see them (nor will anyone else).

Abdominal Muscle Mass:-

Once you have become lean enough, you can do additional ab work, and the increased ab muscle mass will lead to an improvement in ab definition and thickness.

Genetics and Abdominal Structure:-

Some individuals tend to store less body fat around their midriff and might seem to have been handed some excellent ab genetics, giving them a very-worthy cover model, or 6-pack look. But not to worry, even if that doesn’t sound like you, my system works for all body types.

Stubborn Areas and Body Fat Storage:-

Many people store surplus fat around their stomach area. This, in turn, requires them to diet a little harder and to reduce that stubborn fat around the belly, (midriff or core).

For a high number of people, the primary focus should be shedding (or stripping back) body fat. This is more crucial around the belly. Some have sufficient ab muscles (core) to give them a head-turning 6-pack, already.

All they have to do is become lean enough for it to show.

There are many lean athletes and members of the general public who never train their abs, and despite this, we can still see they have great 6-pack abs, especially when they are lean enough for it to be noticeable.

In this title, we’ll learn that our primary concern ought to be an overall fat loss, and more specifically, fat loss in the belly region. Once you become leaner and can start seeing your 6-pack, then you can add some ab-specific work to help increase your abdominal density and thickness.
