The way to get tight abs is often a source of confusion for people. Most people simply decide they want tight abs and start working them in the hope of getting what they want. Lets look at exactly what we want so we can better understand how to get it.
Everybody wants nice tight abs. The reason why is because everybody recognizes, that the abs are the most visually appealing part of the body. There is a technical reason for this. It has to do with the science of Aesthetics. It is actually an optical illusion.
A flat area, or featureless area always looks larger to the eye, because the eye travels to the outer edges of the area because there is nothing to look on the inside of that area. When our mid section is featureless, when the skin is thick because it is full of engorged fat cells. The eye travels instantly to the outer edges of the mid section and takes a reading and makes a decision about whether that area is large or small. The eye takes a few things into account. Especially, it considers the proportion of the shoulders and the waist. This differential is used by the brain to decide whether this torso is thin or thick. Whether this person is fat or slim.
So the familiar 6 pack bumps and ridges we long for actually have a real reason for existing in terms of looking good. The six pack attracts the eye to the center, forcing the eye to ignore the outer edges of the torso. This typically makes the torso look smaller.
When you have a layer of fat covering your abs, what happens is you have a featureless area on your torso so the eye focuses on the outline. When you work your abs, which is what we have established is what most people want to do when they decide they want a nice six pack, we enlarge the muscle group. Now what is happening here is we are actually working towards the opposite of what we want. The eye travels to the torso, to look at the six pack on any muscular body, not because it is large, but because it is SMALL in comparison to the upper body. The shoulders chest and arms.
The key to a great looking set of abs is to make the skin covering them as thin and as supple as possible. That is the essential task of a great looking six pack. Cardio and limited calorie intake will do wonders for you.
