If You Don’t Have Abs, You Are Working Out Wrong

I’m sorry to disappoint anyone, but if you don’t have a 6-pack this summer, you aren’t working out correctly.

A 6-pack is a basic mandatory pose for any bodybuilder.  I have a 6-pack every summer and so does my old training partner Joe, from http://fitnessfromgroundzero.blogspot.com

Getting a 6-pack takes a lot of work, but you once you know what you are doing, it becomes almost routine.

There are two basic rules to building a 6-pack:

A) You need to lift heavy weights: During most of the year, you need to lift heavy weights.  Stick with the compound lifts, including bench press, shoulder dumbbells, barbell curls, squats, deadlifts, leg press, etc.

The only way to put on mass and muscle size to to lift heavy weights.  If your max bench press is under 250lbs, you probably wont have a large chest.  You need to lift heavy weights and the stronger, the better.

B)  You need to diet down:  I lose at least 15 lbs between the winter and summer.  Along with a strict diet and cardio, I try to maintain as much muscle mass as possible while I start to lose weight.

If you follow those 2 basic rules, you should be able to CUT down to a 6-pack.

The reason that MOST people don’t reach a 6-pack, is that they DONT lose enough weight. You NEED to lose weight or you will not have a 6-pack.

Where I workout in NYC, at least 90% or more of the people in the gym are overweight.

When you continue to lose the weight, you will slowly start to see the cuts coming in.  Eventually it should look like this:


It’s unfortunate, but there are a ton of bodybuilders giving advice that really have no idea what they are talking about.

One of them is Tim Ferriss.  Tim wrote a best selling workout guide but has a physique with a really high body fat.


The best part is that I believe he admitted to taking steroids.  He seems like a nice guy, but he doesn’t really have a clue about bodybuilding.


If you want specifics, check out my bodybuilding guide.  I tell you exactly how and when to cut the weight, including my weight lifting routine.

Good luck!
