Sorry guys, but crunches and sit-ups will never give you rock-solid abs on their own. Research has found that many of these popular movements that are supposed to get you a chiseled mid-section in no time don’t actually produce any significant results and place a lot of strain on other parts of the body such as the neck, spine and lower back. Instead, you should first try harder to eat right and reduce your body fat by burning more calories than you consume (belly fat does a wonderful job at covering them up, remember?).
Some seasoned bodybuilders would even go as far as to say that abs are made in the kitchen and not in the gym. Next, you have to engage in a diverse workout routine that targets each of the upper and lower abdominal muscles and works them from every possible angle.
