Want great abs? Be prepared to work for them. We all wish we could just wash down a magic pill with our favorite beer and still end up with washboard abs, but reality says we have to put in a lot of hard work to see the payoff. No one gets that chiseled look without dedication and hard work, but you may be surprised to know that the key to great abs goes beyond sit ups and crunches.
The truth is, everyone has six-pack abs. It's just that some of us also have plenty of insulation to cover them up. Sure, some people's abs are more toned and defined than others, but the basic anatomy is the same. Funny enough, this is why many people struggle with obtaining those coveted Washboard Abs of Glory, no matter how many sit ups they do. Your sit ups are working just fine, and chances are good you have beautifully defined abs - they just happen to be hiding under a layer of fat. Until you get down below 10 percent body fat, all the sit ups and crunches in the world won't make those beautiful rectus abdominis muscles visible to the naked eye. What that means is that it's going to take a lot more effort than you might think to get those abs you're dreaming of.
