My name is Skip La Cour; I am a 6-time national champion, drug-free bodybuilder. You can learn how to improve your bodybuilding and training efforts by visiting my websites skiplacour.com, manformation.com, massmachinenutrition.com. And today I'm going to talk to you about bodybuilding. One of the most common questions I get asked is "How to get ripped abs, to have a good six-pack washboard set of abs?" Well you need to understand that you can do all the sit ups, and all the crunches in the world and your abs will not be visible, you won't have that six-pack set of abs if it's still covered by a layer of fat. So how do you lose that layer of fat? It's all with your diet. You need to clean up the junk food, or greatly limit the amount of junk food that you have, and you'll need to reduce your calories to lose your body fat. Then and only then will you make those abdominal muscles, that ripped six-pack visible. So despite what you might think with all the exercises, it's your diet. That's how you get a ripped set of abs.
