    Do you think you could get abs in one week?

    Recently I saw a video of three excercises to do every day a week for results of abs.. is this possible?

    No, not unless you are already at a low body fat% and in shape and honestly not even then.  Good abs take a lot of clean eating and exercising and you can't spot reduce.

    It depends on the body type. If somebody has more fat then he can not get abs in one week. Another thing is that, a good body with healthy diet and proper workout daily will help you to get abs in one week.

    Everyone has a great set of abdominal muscles, yet most people have them hidden under a layer of fat. In many ways you don't need to exercise to get them as they're already there.

    Burn away the fat and you should have an excellent flat stomach

    The notion of exercises for abs seems to have been seriously plugged for years online and a lot of the advice centres on quick fixes which may not have a lasting long term effect.

    The other negative is that the body is tuned into adapting to stimuli- after about 5 of the same workouts the effects lessen and a new angle/ alternate variations will be needed.

    Also be aware of what a person needs from a program, big sets with lots of reps don't tend to build muscle size and there is a big difference between an abs exercise and a core exercise which will strengthen you functionally- I try to get clients I deal with away from lying down ab crunches as they have minimal crossover into daily life or many sports.

    Be very careful of the information you take in on the Internet- just because its published doesn't mean it's right- we all know of hubs here which give bad advice and rank highly with google.

    Probably not. Abs are a constant work in progress. "Abs are made in the kitchen". You can do a million situps, crunches, planks, etc and if you are eating an unhealthy diet, you won't see those little babies pop through. Like someone else stated, if you have very low body fat already it may be possible. Eat a lot of protein, do strength conditioning, core exercises and eat clean unprocessed food. But don't put a time frame on something like health and fitness. It is a lifetime journey and it can take a long time to get to such a state of health and lean body mass.
