HOW TO GET THICKER ABS! .
.
.
.Absolutely still the most asked question in my DMs. How do I get a six pack?! It's easy to explain but a lot harder to execute. 1. Train abs in order to build them like any other muscle group. 2. lose enough fat for them to become visible. .
.
Many people naturally have enough abdominal development to see a six pack once they are lean enough but it won't look like their goal mid section unless they grow their abs significantly. But how?!
.
.
.
.
.Again, it's easier said than done. The Rectus Abdominis muscles are the "six pack muscles" and are responsible for spinal flexion and assist in respiration. Crunches and sit-ups are the most common ab exercises but are often done with a lot of hip flexor assistance, the same goes with hanging leg and knee raises. .
.
.
.I train abs like any other short range of motion movement by working them through a full range of motion and slowing down the tempo in order to get sufficient time under tension for each set. Focusing on a complete contraction and spinal flexion from the top for these decline crunches/sit-ups really gives me a great burn and a ton of activation in the upper abs. .
.
.
.I like to superset these with Reverse Crunches which focuses on the lower abs. It's important to envision crunching your lower body into your pelvis (belly button) and achieving spinal flexion from the bottom using your core and not swinging your legs for momentum from your hip flexors. I prefer these reverse crunches on the decline bench over hanging leg or knee raises. .
.
.
.I like to train them two times per week for 3 to 4 sets of 10 to 15 reps each superset. You can increase the decline, number of reps or add weight to the crunches for progressive overload. You can also work up to higher frequency (3 times per week)
