do you believe that sit ups alone can get you to have perfect abs?
Only an idiot would believe that.
It requires a bit more work than just sit ups.
Why on earth would someone with the name abs perfection ask such an uneducated question if that's your background? You should be telling us the answers
I've read so very many articles on this subject, some claiming "Yes" and some claiming "No". I believe there is conclusive proof that sit-ups do sculpt rectus abdominus muscle or the 6 pack people refer to. Variations can help sculpt the obliques but I do not believe that they help the transverse muscles. Having said all that, diet and exercise are necessary to burn the fat that may or may not be covering all the aforementioned muscles.
This post does not make sense, so I am ignoring your question and your pen name. Even your avatar does nothing on the subject of abs because most of the photograph shows a man's chest. You need to get your subject straight, because nothing displayed here has convinced me that you are an "expert" on abs.
The question sounds funny with such a pen name that you already have.
Still this being a question, I should say sit ups in different mannerisms do help in getting perfect abs. The lower labs are difficult with just sit ups but the upper 4 ones are good with sit ups.
Just sit-ups wont give you very good abs... You might get a six pack but the muscle wont be very spread out. The stomach has many muscles and all need to be worked on evenly. For example sit-ups wont do very much for the obliques
After reading so many ill-mannered replies, I'd like to suggest that absperfection, who very well may be an expert on abs, may have posted the question to see what the average reader's beliefs are with regard to sit up's efficacy for chiseling abs.
No, situps alone won't get you perfect abs. You have to do a variety of ab exercises as well as cardio exercise to lower your body fat percentage enough that your abs show up. Someone could do ab exercises for months and months, but they won't get results unless their body fat percentage is low enough for those muscles to show.
I think it depends on how often you do them and how intensely you focus on doing them the right way. You can do a hundred sit-ups a day but if you're not doing them the right way, you won't get any benefit. I prefer planks to sit-ups. I find I feel the burn a lot more and I don't get the neck or back pain that comes with trying to do sit-ups.
Sit ups are capable of making abs perfect, if supported by balanced and healthy diet and some other complementary exercises. Daily dose of sit ups and dips with some yoga can make your life beautiful.
You need to do a variety of exercises to get great abs and ones that don't just focus on abs
situps alone will NOT give you defined abs. You need to strip away the layer of fat that sits over the top of most peoples abs. Once you strip away that fat (through diet), you then expose the muscle (abs) underneath - so its at this point where it counts the most to do exercises (e.g. situps) to tone and work the stomach muscles.
When I was a teenager I got ripped abs by just doing sit ups, lots of them but then again I was skinny so it was easier to have visible abs once they were developed by the sit ups. And I was active so that counted for doing cardio. Most people will not get ripped abs from just doing sit ups, especially if they are not very active and have a lot of stomach fat to begin with. Most people would need to eat clean, do some form of cardio they enjoy (so they can stick with it), and train abs with a variety of abs exercises that target the lower abs , obliques and upper abs if they are serious about getting ripped. Also its easier to get abs if that not your only goal and you also work out your other body parts so that you have a complete physique. You will find that lifting heavy weight involves you core and that your abs get trained indirectly ( lifting weights helps with getting thick abs).
