Well defined abs is the dream of many. And the harder it is to achieve, the more it wants. Abs fascinates, attracts attention and is a matter of pride. Yes, there are people who do not need to exert much effort to show off their cubes on the beach, but in most cases it is a long and laborious work.
Let’s dispel the myths that can prevent you from achieving the goal:
1. Number of packs = number of muscles
Rectus abdominis – that is the muscle that it is divided into packs with horizontal and vertical tendons. The amount and form of packs is determined by genetics, and to change anything hardly anyone can.
2. Many reps = perfect abs
In fact, it is not true. If you do many reps, then, after reducing the percentage of body fat, you will just see a flat abdomen. But for the packs to become packs you need to work with additional weight performing 8-12 reps, the situation is the same as with other muscles.
3. Daily workouts = well defined abs
Abdominal muscles are the same as all other muscles. And they also needs time to recover. You have to work intensively on the abdominal muscles to three times a week.
