I havent seen my abs since the early nineties LOL. It might be because I am now forty one and therefore an age related issue, but sadly, no matter how strictly I diet I never get to the low body fat percentages needed to see clear seperation in my ab muscles. But if I lack the ability to diet down to get visible abs I think I am quite good at accruing muscle mass so have decided to try all I can to pack on the mass and gain visible abs that way.
One strategy says you have to cut all your fat off via diet and cardio before the abs show themselves while the other ( the one I hope to follow ) says, build the muscle and it will burn through the fat so as to show your abs.
What are your thoughts on this issue. The visible ab issue appeals to bodybuilders and non bodybuilders alike And is it the cut to reveal abs or the build to reveal them?
