No matter what your strategy, clean eating and intelligent cardio need to be in place. They are key ingredients to the overall “look”. You can do all the ab work in the world and have the strongest core….but, if you have poor body composition (bodyfat), one cannot see the muscle. Diet really is THE key point; coinciding with smart cardio, good bodywork, and an overall “fitting” exercise plan.
So start with a balanced nutrition plan (including cals in/cals out formula) along with smart cardio…..and please don’t forget (or instruct clients) to stand tall while doing it all (posture adds to a good lookin’ physique and overall self-esteem); then let those abs shine on through. Work them and let them work for you!

As a personal trainer, specific dietary plans aren’t within my scope of practice. However, I can say generally that diets that reduce sugar intake and include healthy fats and proteins for satiety, plus plenty of greenery and other vegetables, tend to stand up well in terms of health and weight benefits.
