Everyone Has Six Pack Abs

Despite popular belief, everyone has 6 pack abs. It is just a case of whether you can see it or not. If your stomach is covered with a few layers of adipose tissue (fat), there is no way in hell you are ever going to see that 6 pack.

Every single person, regardless of race, sex or age, was born with the same abdominal muscles. Some people may have bigger muscles and some may have smaller muscles. Regardless, everyone has 6 pack abs. And each person can enhance their abdominal development and at the same time reduce belly fat enough so the their 6 pack abs will show.

What does this mean? This means that you can have the 6 pack you want, the flat stomach, or simply just reduce the belly fat to an acceptable standard. You and everyone else can do it.

2. Men vs. Women

Men and women are two entirely different creatures in so many ways. And it is definitely true when it comes to how we each hold our body fat. Generally, men hold their body fat around their waistline. As men put on more fat, they tend to see increases in their bellies, love handles and lower back.

Women on the other hand, generally hold their fat in the hips and thighs. When women start gaining weight it hits their hips and thighs first. We have all seen women who have a nice flat stomach, but a huge butt and chunky thighs.

Why is this? Well, God made men and women very differently. The simple scientific answer, fat cells. These are the cells that hold fat and they increase in size as one puts on more body fat. Men generally have more fat cells around their waistline, while women have more fat cells at the hips and thighs.

In some cases, women hold body fat like men and vice versa. There was a friend of mine who was in great shape. All year he would walk around with his chiseled 6 pack, strutting his stuff. One day, I saw him in shorts, and to my surprise he had some fat thighs. He held his body fat like a woman.

Bottom line, no matter where you hold your body fat, you can definitely decrease your body fat enough where you are lean everywhere, especially your belly. Overall, it will take longer for men to lose their belly fat when compared to women.
