    Default How Much Do You Have To Weigh To See Your 6-pack?

    Most guys don’t realize how much weight they have to lose to see their full 6-pack abs. In many cases guys will sabotage their own weight loss efforts because they assume they will be able to see all of their abs at an unrealistically high bodyweight.

    If you want to see your abs then your goal should be how you look in the mirror and not your bodyweight. If you thought you’d see your abs at 180 pounds, and you diet down to 180 pounds and you don’t’ see them…well that just means you have to diet down even lower to see them, plain and simple no magic trick to that.

    The amount you weigh on a scale really doesn’t matter, it’s the look that matters. You probably have a good idea of exactly how you’d like your body to look but only a vague idea if at all of how much you should weigh at that look. But if you’ve never seen your full 6-pack before I’ll bet you’re assuming the weight is much higher than it really is.

    In other words, there is a specific bodyweight you will weigh in order for you to have a full set of visible 6-pack abs. Then there is a slightly heavier bodyweight you will be when only 4 of your abs are visible, and then an even heavier weight when only 2 of your abs are visible etc. Most guys will assume a full six pack will be visible at the bodyweight that only shows 2 abs.

    For some reason we all think we should be heavier than we really are.

    The point is your weight has a specific look. You will look a certain way at 150 pounds, and that particular look and leanness is different from the look you have when you are at 160 pounds and then 170 pounds and so on. You cannot force your body to have the 150 pound look when it is 170 pounds.

    In other words, if your full 6-pack is visible only when you are 150 pounds…then you cannot make it visible when you are 170 pounds. It doesn’t mean you can’t be 170 pounds, it just means you have to accept that you will not be as ripped at 170 as you are at 150. (This might sound very obvious but lots of guys make this assumption that they can be as lean as they want at any bodyweight).

    Any bodybuilder who has done more than one show can tell you within a pound or two of exactly how much he will weigh when he has a fully defined 6-pack. He can also tell you when he is 5 pounds away and when he is 10 pounds away from a visible full 6-pack.

    The only way he will know this is because he’s been there before and knows what he weighed the first time it happened. If he has gained 5 pounds of muscle since his last bodybuilding show, then he also knows that his 6-pack will be visible at a bodyweight 5 pounds higher than the last time it was visible. But he won’t know for sure until he diets down to a visible 6-pack again.

    The point is there is no real way to know exactly how much you will weigh when your abs are fully visible until you can see them.

    So how do you find out how much you need to weigh to see your abs?

    Simple:

    Step 1) Lose weight until you can see your full 6-pack

    Step 2) Step on a scale

    You can use calculators and estimators all day long, but the proof is in the mirror.

    If you want to see your abs then forget about bodyweight and simply diet down until you can see them, you’ll most likely be lighter than you expect.



    Think Looks Don't Matter? Think Again. Women love a man with a great body but HATE men with huge muscles. And although we DO like muscles on a man, there's a "golden" sweet spot that you need to be aware of.

    Basically, 6 packs show up good once your under the 10 percent bodyfat range. Calc that out and plan accordingly

    Lol that couldve been the summary of the whole post...

    I know what you mean OP. Ive lost over 40lbs and my abs are finally showing through, no six pack yet tho(by spring is my goal).

    They dont tell you this shit on TV or anywhere else, just TAKE THESE PILLS if you want to LOOK LIKE THIS. People buy em and then give up on dieting cause they dont see results over night.

    Truth is, months if not years of work are required, so start while your young, and you'll thank yourself every day for the rest of your healthy life for putting the work into it

    Hey guys Jackie is actually a friend of my good friend (Brad Howard). She is in amazing shape and probably has forgotten more about fitness and health advice than most of us (including me) will ever know. I'd listen to her...

    Because I worked in the fitness industry and it basically consumed my life for many years, I have very strong opinions on this stuff, and I have read the book.

    I used to spend my weekends studying medical text books, modern endocrinology, or Metabolic Typing theories, and during the week training guys who got results, fast enough that people thought that they were juicing. The strategies differ than mine in some ways, but there are a million ways to skin a cat, and in the fitness industry there are countless arguments of low calorie vs low carb vs low fat vs carb cycling vs metabolic typing vs blah blah. The marketing, and my way is the only way, is even worse then in the pick up industry.Consistency and having a solid plan is what works, no matter which plan it is, and this one will work if you are consistent.

    That said, I wouldn't stress about your hip to waist ratio, thats the loveable virgin who says "thats why I am not getting laid!! MY hip ratio!!" ; get low body fat, and build muscle, and get a tan and your fine, and you can achieve that using this product.

    Also, as a former state level body builder, it is now my goal to find and pick up Jackie, because honestly, saying that big guys aren't attractive hurt my ego, and my ego is very fragile, which is why I started body building in the first place, so I have to somehow bring myself up (am I joking? I dunno!)

    HAHA. If you're a NATURAL bodybuilder, you might have a shot. Steroid guys... not so much.

    ... just sayin'...

    LOL. glad to hear you say that. Anyone considering that they're worth the risks, is sorely mistaken. Kinda one of the reasons I like the AE product for men so much. Good solid muscle building, and chemical enhancement is not advised.
