Everyone has abdominal muscles, but most people have a buffer in the way: belly fat. For your abs to show women have to reach 16-19% body fat and men have to shoot for 6-9% body fat. Remember, you’re not alone: the average women sits at 34% and men at 28%. The American Council on Exercise says that you can lose 1% of body fat a month while still remaining in good health. It might take a while, but abs could be in your future.
