High-protein, low-carb diets, combined with plenty of cardio, proved a popular formula on the thread, as did abstaining from booze. One post claimed that The fat covering your abs really melts after cutting out alcohol, to which somebody replied: The closest I came to a six pack was when I quit drinking. After about a month, Id be able to tell the difference in the mirror after having two beers the night before.
Everybodys fitness journey is different, but its always good to share tips and insights with other people-especially when it helps bust workout myths. A recent thread on Reddit prompted men to get honest about how they (at least claim to have) attained six-pack abs, and what is and isnt productive, with a number of commenters concluding that, at the end of the day, its mostly diet and genes.
