EXPOSING YOUR ABS is a matter of getting very low body fat levels. The lower your body fat, the “thinner” your skin will appear (actually the “skin-fold” which contains skin plus subcutaneous fat), and the more your abdominals will show through.

It’s only true that without the proper diet (doing it right in the kitchen), the ab exercises by themselves are useless. Well-developed abs can remain covered up with a layer of fat and it’s possible to out-eat any amount of exercise.

Personality A is the person who thinks, “as long as I get super lean, my abs will show,” so they blow off ab workouts or train them very little, thinking they’ll have ab EXPOSURE and ab DEVELOPMENT just by being lean (diet alone).
Personality B (which includes a lot of women) is the type of person who cranks out a 30 minute or even a one HOUR ab class every day, but they’re not aware of the importance of low body fat – or they simply don’t put the effort into fat-burning nutrition, so they never get their body fat low enough.
