Most people who want to make their abs look good to go about doing so the wrong way. In fact, there is a good chance that your abs are already ripped beyond belief, it’s just that you can not see them under all the fat. What you have to do first is lose the fat to make your abs visible.

Now do not get me wrong, there are plenty of ab exercises and workouts you can use to make your abs stronger and will give your body more balance and stability. I’ll get to that in a bit, but first I want to explain what the best way is to make your abs visible.

To lose the weight around your midsection you need to eat healthy first and foremost. Next, you need to use exercises that work out the largest muscle groups in your body. Use exercises like the squat and deadlift three times a week to optimize your weight loss. Tying in these exercises with high-intensity workouts like wind sprints will speed up the fat loss process even more.

Once you stay consistent with your diet and exercise you will really begin to see the results show because your metabolism will be operating at top speed to burn your fat even when you are at rest.

If you are at a point where you do not need to lose any weight and want to strengthen your abs, there is, in my opinion, the best workout you can do for your abs. I already mentioned it above as a weight loss exercise but the front squat is really a killer ab workout disguised.

Even though it is designed to workout your legs, it actually increases upper body strength and will define your abs as well.

The front squat will work your abs much more than the other squat exercises because it requires much more balance and stability which is exactly what your abs do. To get this exercise right you need to properly set the barbell on your shoulders.

Get under the bar and cross your arms so that the bar is set on the dimple of your shoulders just before the bone. Be sure to keep your elbows up and arms parallel to the ground as you remove the bar from the support. You should hold onto them by pressing your thumbs up against the bar for support.

Once you have the bar in position, go ahead and perform the squat manoeuvre by bending down from the hips and keeping your weight on the heads of your feet. Squat down until your thighs are about parallel to the ground then return back slowly to the starting position.

The front squat when performed correctly will improve strength in many parts of your body and you will also see dramatic results in your abs. The key to all of this is consistency. Set up a plan where you are eating healthy and working out often.
