1/10/13 6:23 PM
i am 15 5'11 i 152 12% body fat i want to get lean and i know it will take awhile and i have a long road ahead but i want to really badly also really my dream is to get a six pack. I know that you have to get your body fat down very low to get your six pack to be seen. I am wondering if i have to still lose weight i can feel my six pack under my fat someone told me that i just have to workout it out more until i can see it is that true? Also i am doing p90x because my sister got it does that build muscle because i have change with my strength i think. Should i do p90x until i get a six pack then go to the gym or not? and if i need to do more for a six pack what do i have to do i am already dieting and exercising what should i do

If I could offer a few quick things, you look like you don't have far to go in order to see the six back. The abs are like any other muscle you are going to have to work them to get them big enough to show but more importantly the abs are going to be made from what you eat. The workouts will help you get there but it is only the spark it is how you eat that is going to fuel the fire. Good luck, I am sure you will get there.

The secret to getting Abs is nutrition. Do you follow the P90X Nutrition Guide?

You need to be in a light calorie deficit and have your macro right. That means Macro of 50% Protein / 30% Carbs and 20% Fat.

Your calorie target to lose weight would be 2300 calories.

Create yourself a myfitnesspal account to track your nutrition.

Fork put-downs and table push-aways. That said, I would be a lot more concerned with strength training and adding muscle if I were you.

You're pretty thin already. So look for a virtuous balance of good nutrition at a proper calorie level to support your body while it builds a little more muscle. If you're at 12% already you don't have far to go. You only need to get rid of about 3 or 4 lbs of body fat to be into the single digits.

P90x is a great program for your goal. Especially if you stick with the nutrition program.

The QUICKEST way for YOU to build a sixpack is to GAIN MUSCLE FIRST. People with decent sixpacks ALL have muscle. Do a round of P90X a stick to the 8-10 rep range, don't overdo cardio, and EAT enough to support the workouts. Dieting, as in calorie restriction, will never build a sixpack.
