How To Get Visible Abs

I’m participating in a blog challenge where every day this month I will be posting on a topic that begins with the letter of the alphabet.  Today’s letter is A. 


Let’s talk briefly about abs.  Many people say they want them but few are willing to do what it takes to get them.  What are abs you say?  Abs is short for abdomen and are a group of mucles some may consider the stomach or belly.  Here is a formal definition: 

[abdominal muscle, any of the muscles of the anterolateral walls of the abdominal cavity, composed of three flat muscular sheets, from without inward: external oblique, internal oblique, and transverse abdominis, supplemented in front on each side of the midline by rectus abdominis.]

Abdominal muscle 

Encyclopedia Britannica                                                          

So how do you get visible abs?  Here are a few things you must do: 

  1. Eat clean by eating fresh fruit and vegetables, avoid fried and over processed food and drink plenty of water
  2. Exercise your abs to build the muscle as well as incorporate cardio to burn the fat covering your abs
  3. Get plenty of sleep and rest because the body actually repairs and builds while you are resting

There’s a famous saying “Abs are made in the kitchen” and they are.  If you are exercising hard but not eating right – you will not see your ab muscles pop through the fat.  Remove the layer of fat covering your ab muscles with the 3 activities listed above and you will be sporting envious visible abs in no time.


Also read my Naked Me Tea 14-Day Detox review where I share how drinking that tea helped to flatten my stomach, lose inches around my waist and lose weight overall.  There’s a coupon code included to save 15% off of your total order.

      That is great Becca. Crunches are good but remember to mix up the exercises for well balanced abs.

    Hi Diatta, I wish I had your passion for fitness. I am a faithful lap swimmer – but that’s more about sanity, peace and cardio health. No visible abs for me! Excited to read more of your posts – just followed you on bloglovin – maybe you’ll inspire me! Hope you can follow back, at least through the challenge. Lisa

    I just joined a 30-day ab challenge. I figured, why not? I’m going to be running more and doing more outdoor activities, so I figure it can help supplement that exercise and strengthen my core. I want to look GOOD in that bikini this year 😉
