The number one question from folks who write to us is "How do I get better abs?" We'll answer that question here.
A detailed answer would take many pages (such as those in Shawn Phillips' book, Absolution). Let's start out by addressing common myths, then working principles, then a six-point plan to get you those great abs.

There you go. If you follow these six steps, you will have abs you can be proud of.

Where an article is not bylined with a specific author's name, it was written by Mark Lamendola (see photos on home page and elsewhere on this site). Mark is a 4th degree blackbelt, has not been sick since 1971, and has not missed a workout since 1977. Just an example of how Mark knows what he's talking about: In his early 50s, Mark demonstrated a biceps curl using half his body weight. That's a Jack LaLanne level stunt. Few people can even come close. If you want to know how to build a strong, beautiful body, read the articles here.
