The truth is that some people just don’t have the genes (or the abs) to ever get the six-pack of their dreams, but there are proven training techniques and often-surprising diet tips that will give you the best chance of not only strengthening the core but also producing the kind of abdominal definition that you’ve been chasing all this time.
