I have been working out for about 8 months. I dont do any cardio or any type of running. I do 200 reps working my abs everytime I work out, but they still dont look like I want them to. I am only 143 lbs and I can feel a little fat below my belly. If I start running will that help shape my abs out and help my 6 pack look better?
Hello, quoting. When I was 138 lbs., my height is 5'6", I was fit but overweight. I could not see my abs, even though I was working them as well as running, bench aerobics and weight training. It was not until I lost 20 lbs. that my abs could be seen.
Your abs are there, but they're probably under a layer of fat. What is your height? You should determine your BMI (boddy mass index), and if necessary, lose some weight to obtain a more reasonable BMI.
I dont think I am overweight. I need to gain about 8 pounds so I can be around 150. I can see my abs it just they dont look like I want them to. I can also see me skinny ribs. Thats why I want to gain a little weight to put some meat on my skinny body, but at the same time strenghin my 6 pack. Will running help scuplt your abs?
overweight has nothing to do with a six pack. you have to be extremely lean for the abs to really show through. Diet and cardio will definitely help though. The last shreds of fat usually hang out on the abs and when that gets stripped off is when the six pack shows up.
