Using Heavy Lifting to Get Ripped Six Pack Abs

In January I was doing an abs challenge, where I worked out
abs every day after workouts and on rest days to develop and sculpt them. While
I realize that training abs alone will not give you that complete 6 pack abs
look, the aim of this experiment was to see if what the top fitness guys were
doing really worked. Now to understand how these top fitness guys get their
ripped abs we have to look at their whole routine in detail.

Getting Ripped Six Pack Abs like a Fitness Model
Most fitness models train abs more than 3 times a week. Some
of the guys with the craziest looking abs train them every day, using multiple
ab exercises to sculpt their core. Some of the most effective ab workouts are
the ones that use weights and cables. To add to this, fitness models unlike
normal people live fitness, it’s their life and their occupation so everything
depends on them being lean year round. So they use a multitude of supplements
to help them burn fat and optimize the amount of muscle they maintain year
round. Of the supplements that they take, some of them take fat burners which
help them to get shredded for photo-shoots which is when we always see them. Besides
the supplementation, they also eat clean foods most of the time, to add to that
many fitness models do cardio to put the finishing touches to their physiques.
Depending on their body-type the various fitness models will do different
amounts of cardio with some not doing cardio at all (the ectomorphs), opting
intense training sessions instead.
Now to get back to doing heavy lifts for abs.
Heavy Lifting for Six Pack Abs
I remember during my first year of gym, I did not train abs
at all, if I did it was random but I still had visible abs even after gaining
33lbs. The reason for this was that training regularly especially doing
workouts for legs and back which require core strength to stabilize the body,
the abs were indirectly worked out. What I am noticing again now that I am
doing the Arnold type split is that the abs are really getting well trained
from the squats, dead-lifts, pull ups and good mornings. These workouts being
repeated twice a week give the abs a good workout. Doing these exercises as
well as normal ab exercises is sure to bring about, thick and cut abs.
