It doesn’t matter if you think you have “bad genes” you can change your life to make your genes the best they can possibly be. It doesn’t matter if no one else in your family has visible abs, that just means they’re not living a lifestyle to attain a ripped stomach.

The information and methods are out there you just need to put them to use. Not everyone who has visible abs was born with them; they had to work for them too. Here is the next thing that you need to change.
Eat for Abs
There is only one reason that you can’t see your abs; it’s because there’s a layer of fat over them. So in order for you to get a washboard stomach you need to melt this layer of fat off your body. Thousands of crunches aren’t going to do this for you; you can’t spot reduce fat. No, what you need to do is modify your diet. Like I said, this information is already out there. You know the many different ways you can improve your diet and lose weight, but let me give you two tips to help you out.
First you want to go through your house and get rid of all the junk. Throw it out, feed it to the birds or give it to someone else; you don’t want this stuff in your house. So go through your fridge, freezer and cupboards and find all the ready-made meals. Things like TV dinners or family meals you can just pop in the microwave are full of horrible ingredients that will sabotage your ab-gaining efforts. Get rid of all the chips, sodas, a lot of your condiments and desserts to. This doesn’t mean that you have to give them up for life; you just don’t want a source of junk food in your house. It’s too easy for you to get to it. Plan out cheat meals on occasion and then go out to get your junk; don’t bring it home with you. Then you can restock your home with healthy food and drinks.
Next you’ll want look at the places in your house where you spend the most of your time. You don’t want any food sources near those places. Don’t have food sitting next to your favorite chair in your living room or on your computer desk. It’s too easy for you to reach out and start eating. Separate your eating from other things you do in your daily life. When it’s time to eat, you go to the kitchen to get your food. Force yourself to put in a little effort if you want to eat and it’ll keep you from overeating while you’re sitting around. If you have to get up to get food then maybe you’ll think twice about it and wait until you really should be eating again. But to ensure that your abs look good once you melt the fat off them, you’ll have to perform exercises that really work your ab muscles.
Train for Abs
You don’t want to have a workout filled with the age-old sit ups you learned in elementary school. You want to do exercises that are going to completely rock your abs and build a strong waist that looks amazing. And to do this sometimes you have to go about things in a backward approach. Like for instance doing reverse crunches on the floor. Get into the normal crunch position on the floor with your knees bent at a 90 degree angle. Then bring your knees up to your chest by flexing your abs and lifting your butt off the floor. Make sure that you keep your knees in that 90 degree position the whole time as you lower your legs back down to complete one rep.
You can also do exercises that might look odd, but are actually pretty effective, like a straight body side crunch. Lie on the floor on your side and put your arms straight out above your head, in line with your body. Keep your legs straight too and clasp your hands together. Then you want to raise both your arms and legs up at the same time so that they’re not touching the floor. Hold this position for as long as you desire and then flip over onto your other side and repeat for the same amount of time to complete one rep.
If you want to work your obliques even more then you ought to do a set of seated Russian twists while cycling your legs. Take a seat on the floor and cross your arms across your chest by grabbing your opposite shoulders. Then you want to lean back until your torso is at a 45 degree angle from the floor. Then you want to twist your torso to the right while bringing your right knee up to your chest. At the midpoint of this rep your left elbow will be touching your right knee. Then you reverse the motion and twist your torso to your left while bringing your left knee up to your chest and that’s one rep. These are three steps that you can implement in one day to help you work toward your 6-pack abs.
These simple changes are proven to help anyone gain a visible set of abs. When you change your mindset, change your diet and change your workouts you are three steps closer to a waist you can be proud of.
