How to Target the Abs

Six-pack abs are impressive to look at, and often conjure up images of hours spent in the gym – however, obtaining a strong core is surprisingly easy, if you know how.
Visible abs are actually made in the kitchen – a diet leading to a low body fat percentage is the most important things – but there are various workouts that will successfully harden and transform your abdominals.
According to a study done by the American Council on Exercise (ACE), there are three abdominal workouts that are most effective in achieving a strong core and washboard stomach muscles.
The exercise uses all of the abdominal muscles, including the rectus abdominis – the front ab muscles that make up the six-pack.
In addition to making you appear “in shape,” abs are also important – as a strong abdominal wall is necessary to protect the spine and keep posture upright and straight.
If you have set out to achieve a six-pack, it will likely take you anywhere from three to 20 months, according to ACE.
However, make sure your diet is on par with your goals, as hours of hard work can be sabotaged by what you eat.
