Six Pack Abs
As you can see from the picture, the rectus abdominis is a large muscle that extends from the pubis to the rib cage. The rectus abdominis is divided into smaller sections by a tendinous intersection. It is these smaller divisions that give the appearance of six pack abs.
Furthermore, there is no such thing as spot reduction so the best thing you can do to reveal your six pack abs is diet and cardio. Many people falsely believe that doing hundred....even thousands....of sit-ups per day will produce six pack abs.
In summary, one should do sit-ups and other ab exercises for core strength; BUT, you and your clients should eat healthy and start/continue a cardiovascular exercise program to show off those abs!!
