I am doing abs workout (7 minute app workout 1-2 per day) for "that slightly muscular sexy abs" for 2 month now, but I don't really see any visual progress and this makes me really sad =(

Should I change my workout / do it more / try more strict diet?

How to to check my progress (to keep my motivation and to be sure I am on the right way)?

1,75m / 80kg / broad shoulders type

The problem is that getting bigger abs isn't going to give you visible abs.

Your abdominal muscles are situated behind a layer of fat, which makes them invisible. Any amount of ab workouts isn't going to help you unless you reduce your belly fat.

Should I change my workout / do it more / try more strict diet?

Yes / no / YES.

The best way to get rid of fat is to take control of your diet. And your workout routine should include your entire body, and not just one part of it.

Any workout program that targets only abs, is a supplemental program. Not a full program.

  • I don't think it targets abs that hard + I do some exercise as part of my job/daily routine, but what program do you recommend?

  • As for workout program, try Stronglifts 5x5, or whatever program you see that you like.

  • I don't have time or desire for gym and don't really see how you can call it "full program". I'll check those questions through, thanks.
