The smart money is on your friend and here's why. "Six pack abs" are a result of hard work, genetics, dedication, consistency, diet and smart training. See where I'm going with this? Like any other body part it takes time to sculpt it. So, unless you're predisposed to great abs, your chances are pretty slim given the time frame and the fact there's no "fool ...

Abs are made in the kitchen. You can do like Serge Nubret, 2000 crunchs per day, but if you have a poor/unbalanced diet, they'll never appear. You have to review your diet. You can visit bobybuilding.com for some example, tips etc for fat loss/shred.

The following is conjecture based on the limited information provided by the question: It's possible that you've accumulated some muscle in that time frame, if you were doing little to no exercise prior to your gym membership. Effectively, your body makes some of the basic adaptations pretty quickly in response to the changes in activity. However, it's ...

Is very dificult with so less information to tell you something. First we should know what you are eating. Also, you need to know that a normal person can only get from 2kg to 3kg (about 5 lbs) of PURE muscle (not muscle gain due to water retention) in a year, so that is not posible in only one month. What happens when you start training is that your body ...

Progression in planks can take the form of added resistance, like you would with other muscles. AKA, add load. Weighted planks. Or weighted reverse planks. http://www.allthingsgym.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/Weighted-Reverse-Plank-Chinese-Weightlifting.jpg

First I would question your ab routine. Basically there are two ways to target abs. 1 - Using a high amount of resistance. 2 - Doing a lot of reps at high intensity. Your abs are small muscles, especially if you have not worked them out very long. Every other day is probably a good routine amount. If you are in the beginning phases of ab workouts ...

When it comes to weight training, one of the best ways to keep mass/strength as much as possible is to lift with less volume but try to keep up intensity. I'm cutting at the moment so I'm dropping the overall sets that I'm doing but trying to lift as heavy as I reasonably can. It's hard to progress on anything or get bigger on a cut unless you've just ...

To make abs visible the most important factor(the faster one) is to lower your caloric intake but keep or even raise your protein intake. Also long term usage of the muscle improves local circulation and improves fuel efficiency making your abs more "definited", local fat loss is possible but it's more of a long term thing, thus negligible.

First you should have clear some concepts. You don't burn fat on belly by doing abs, nor you don't make them visible by doing it. As it's said, abs are made in the kitchen. Doing abs workout, what you do is make them bigger, as with other muscles. You should focus your routine almost the same way you focus it for muscle gain, but introducing some more ...

I'd recommend doing abdominal rollouts: If you have the space you do them with a barbell (provided the weights can freely rotate), or you can pickup an "ab roller' like the one shown above. They are quite cheap (I picked mine up for ~$5), light and compact. Once kneeling rollouts become too easy, its a matter of progressing to standing rollouts:

Yes - for two reasons (probably). 1.) Biking will burn calories and unless you're eating more calories to compensate, you'll be losing fat, thus feeling more tight in your stomach area. 2.) Your core muscles (aka your abs and others) are involved in practically EVERY movement you do to varying degrees. If you haven't exercised much in the past, you'll ...

I have only found two reviews not by the company selling the Technoshape equipment: The National — "After one session, my stomach felt slightly more taut, although this may have been because I skipped breakfast that morning. Like the Hypoxi, some scientists are dubious to its claims of success. After all, a dozen sessions of any intensive exercise is bound ...
