  2. Believe it or not, lose more body fat by slowly dieting. That's the main way to get a 6 pack. You dont have that far to go.

    But, if you ask me, 6 packs on girls aren't that appealing. (but maybe thats just me)

  3. I would say diet while continuing to work your abs.

  4. Yeah, just keep the dieting going, keep the exercising going, and maybe try out a topical fat-loss product like Napalm.

    That is a very lovely mid-section already. But if you want to see muscle tone there you need to do more.

    One great 10 minute or so killer ab workout is the P90x "ab ripper X" routine. Borrow the DVD from someone or download just that part from the internet.

    I also recommend the entire p90x circuit training and "keep the body in motion" type of training for toning up...plus the yoga session is extreme and you'll really benefit from it.

    This is not THE only way but I stumbled onto it and found it to be a pretty solid way for people to tone up.

    Definitly just you.

    My GF finds that leg lifts work well. Lay on a decline bench, the wrong way, holding the top, and lift.

    Also she likes to use a back extension machine backwards, where your feet would be supported, and you lean back.


    If those dont make sense i might be able to find some pics for you.

  7. Diet must be locked in and you have to have a solid core ab structure.

    The leg lifts are awesome, you can also do a version where you lower your legs super slowly, sit ups, typical gym ab machines, broomstick twists , seated bench V style knee crunches, hanging leg lifts..etc.

  8. Dieting, plenty of squats and deadlifts and further core specific work like crader mentioned.

  9. Looks like you are very close to me as well, just tighten your diet down a bit, and use a variety of ab exercises. With enough intensity I would think you could see some nice ripples in 6 months.

    By the way...is that a skull and cross bones in the belly button? Nice.

    Well I dont need it to be a ripped 6 pack.. just defined you know...

  12. diet. ab exercises.
    Cub has some good suggestions.
    squats and deadlifts.
    SFW and GFH

  13. you dont possess much bodyfat at all, so it shouldnt be hard to "tone up".

    I would much rather focus at this point on what crader mentioned, building up a solid ab and core structure (building the muscles within the area)

    LOL... nice undie's.... Have you tried Interval cardio?

  15. You are really close I would just do some crunches and maybe use a pilates ball to strech your midsection, to elongate your torso. Keep a good diet and maybe use a fatburner like lipo 6 (the one made for women) to just give you that little kick to get past the plateau. Give it time you'll get there

  16. Continue with eating lean. I often times will add weight to my ab routine and I like using the decline bench for crunches and leg lifts.

    Do it, by the time of the contest you'll be where you want to be, call it motivation.

  18. keep up the dieting. work high rep of weight training and cardio

  19. good luck
  20. Diet Diet Diet (and some exercise)

    Toning is either: 1) losing bodyfat, 2) gaining muscle mass, or 3) losing bodyfat whilst simultaneously gaining muscle mass.

    And for all three. the most important component is DIET. Get that dialled in right. Make sure that you're training hard (resistance training, maybe some cardio). Add in some exercises for your abs to develop the muscles (so that you can see them). But it's mostly DIET...

    You can have a 6-pack and still look sexy and be VERY feminine. Muscle looks better than 'softness' (but that's just MY opinion, LOL; everyone has their own preferences as to what looks good...)

    Olivia, you are close! I'm going to echo what everyone else here has said, in that if you lightly get a bit stricter with your diet and up your cardio you will begin to see those abs. Ab exercises are great, but nothing builds an impressive core like deadlifts and squats.

    Also, as far as supplements go, Avant Labs Napalm is a topical supplement that you rub on your midsection and it will help remove what little fat you have there.

    ps - nice froggie

  23. thanks everyone... Im just starting to get back into the gym now... Lots of stuff have been happening lately so I was out for a few weeks. Bt starting it up again.

  24. Nice. Keep us updated with full length body shots on a daily basis. It will really help with our training suggestions

    IMO women are supposed to be on the 'softer' side and I personally find women with chiseled abs to look filthy. There is nothing wrong with a toned stomach but thats as far as I go. Current opinions on what is "sexy" have been created by magazines and other advertisement media.

    Remember that the OP is asking for a 6-pack when you're tossing out your adjectives in their thread.

    Err, yes... but she clarified she was looking for "defined" and not "ripped." My use of the term "chiseled" I feel is pretty synonymous with "ripped." Either way I was just interjecting a little bit of opinion, as did others, minus a little color.

    To the OP - I agree with cub... compound exercises like squats and deadlifts will not only increase core strength but will also tighten the midsection as they both utilize the abdominal muscles as antagonistic stabilizers. You may also want to try the "suitcase deadlift" which is a deadlift variant that seems to target the obliques a little more, especially if you use a dumbells but only do one side of your body at a time (i.e. a dumbbell in just your right or your left hands, not both).

    Other things to add in:

    Cable Crunch
    Roman Chair Leg Raise
    Russian Twist (with medicine ball)

    Each to their own! 'Toned' to me is 'fat skinny', so there you go. And as for what's "sexy" in the media: big boobs, small waist, fat skinny or just plain skinny, and little else (except for fitness media, and then you get a mix of 'toned', muscle and softness)...

    To me "defined" means being able to SEE the abs and not just a mere 'hint' (as you can see with me right now). And to see them a female must be a low BF %...

    ...Anyways, I'm done here. Everyone has their own opinion. What's right for someone is not for another. And what one finds attractive, another won't. Simple as that.
