Also, forgot to mention. To super accelerate your results, change your workout program including abs every 3-4 weeks. You should have 2 - 3 routines you can interchange.

DO CARDIO. Or actually, interval training. You need to burn fat to show your abs, it alway comes down to body fat %. Do this tues. thurs.

Don't work your abs every day. They need rest just like your arms chest and back. On mo. wed. fri. do your upper or lower body routine and add abs to it. You need some variety even in your ab routine, or your muscles will stop responding. Scrap the plain old crunches and look into some pilates and advanced pilates (see youtube). Do sets of 25 reps with 10 second breaks between sets. Each set should be a different move (upper and lower abs mix). You'll have between 10 and 15 moves in your 10 - 20 minute workout. If you can stand up straight after your first time, I'll be surprised.

Try the paleolithic nutritional regimen. Look up paleolithic diet anywhere online. The focus here is on getting loads of protein into your body so your muscles can repair quickly from the beating you're going to give them. Also, fat is used for energy instead of carbs. High glycemic foods cause your body to react by storing fat. This way of eating will eliminate that problem. Just don't go too nuts on the fruit. (If you try it, you'll see what I mean)


I used basically this plan to get from 6' tall 160 lbs. to 175 lbs in 3 months. No excessive body fat, I kept my 8pack the whole time.

Hope this helps
