When you take off your shirt, the thing most people notice is a set of ripped abs. This situation can come up anytime, whether it is at the beach, around the pool ore even if you are out mowing the lawn. In these situations, others are going to notice your physique.
If you are a bit flabby and overweight then you may find less sensitive people chuckle at you or make comments about you to friends and colleagues. Although this is unpleasant it can be a harsh cruel reality.
If you are thinner then you will often escape people’s notice. However, if you have a six pack, people will definitely notice you. If you have washboard abs then, and only then will you attract the kind of attention that everyone craves. However, to get a six pack is a tough road to travel unless you are blessed with fantastic genes. As with any road you need a plan or a map to follow. This is the map for you to follow.
The main factor to consider:
You could perform all the ab exercises in the world and spend hours down the gym, but nobody will ever notice them if your body fat percentage is too high.
Your may think, that is ok for me, as I’ve never been called fat in my life but this is wrong. Their is a world of difference between “not being fat” and having a body fat percentage low enough to make a six pack visible.
The goal is for between an eight to ten percent body fat level. Anything above this and you are not going to see your abs. There are a number of online tools for measuring your body fat percentage but they are inaccurate. The best way is to invest in a pair of digital calipers to get the most accurate reading. These can easily be bought online and are not particularly expensive.
Only after you start to measure your body fat percentage will you begin to appreciate where you are in your quest to getting a six pack.
