why I don’t have 6-pack abs

In deep thoughts, inspiration, learning by Jay Clouse

As I’m writing this, my abs are very sore.

I’ve always hated doing core workouts. But I’ve also dreamed of being 6-pack abs guy.

Spoiler: I’ve never had a 6-pack in my life. Which really isn’t surprising when you consider the fact that I’ve never put emphasis on working out my core, eating correctly, and doing the actual work required to get 6-pack abs.

I would run, I’d do some squats, but that was about it. I avoided the hard work of planks, sit ups, crunches, leg lifts, etc. I did things that were easier and tangential, but avoiding the real (hard) work and never actually achieved the result.

That’s pretty stupid, and wildly inefficient.

If you want something, do the hard work required to get there. And if you’re going to do the work, why not find the shortest distance between the two points?

I’ve started doing core workouts. My abs are very sore.
