2 pre-requisites for getting washboard abs:
- There is no way of getting washboard abs without strong abdominal muscles. Exercising the abdominal muscles is a necessity to obtain washboard abs.
- Defining the muscles alone does not lead to washboard abs. The abdominal muscles have to be made visible. It is necessary to "uncover" the abdominal muscles. This means that the fat on the abdomen needs to go.
Washboard stomach - why?
Just a few years ago men having washboard abs was hardly a topic of discussion. However the media, which previously targeted only women, is causing men to become increasingly conscious of their appearance. Adverts and magazines claim that washboard abs make a man attractive.
One can obviously object to the ideals that society dictates however if one considers the fate of women, who have significantly more experience with such ideals, it is easy to see that it is difficult to do this. The media dictates the standards and the standards determine the expectations of the opposite sex as well as the society.
