(The OTHER six-pack…)
Perhaps the most common question we receive relates to the number of crunches one should do to get 6-pack abs. Truth is, it doesn’t matter how many thousands of crunches you do in a day, if you’re not eating right, that 6 or 8-pack (yes, some are genetically provided with 8) will always be covered by a layer of *gulp* yes, FAT.
What about the “Abs are made in the kitchen!” statement. It’s true, to a certain extent. You won’t develop those abs of steel through diet alone.
Your hidden, inner washboard requires a combination of hard work and proper diet to throw off its layer of insulation. There is no shortcut… unless, of course, you go under the knife!
