Reality of extreme rock hard abs 😱SWIPE RIGHT . . This past 2018 was by far some of the craziest conditioning I ever reached 😬 I hit an all new extreme and low bf% and didn’t even recognize the body I was in. However there’s a big misconception that I can have these babies year round. Well y’all here’s the reality of these abs ⬇️ and those extreme 6 packs that you see . . Abs are the result of low BF% most women will not see abdominal definition until they are under 18% BF ➡️ keep in mind a healthy BF% for women is 15-25% with 15 being extremely lean. With where I’m at in this video I was sitting at 9-10% BF 😨 this conditioning was achieved by over 5 months of dieting and not slipping up 🤭 I took this prep really seriously and wanted to achieve another level of lean which I DID! @paulrevelia . . News flash though ➡️ this body isn’t sustainable though. . . Unfortunately as most of you are scrolling through IG I think a lot of women forget that bodybuilding is a sport and this can’t be maintained without some mental and physical consequences. With being shredded you will likely experience 1️⃣Fatigue constantly 💤 2️⃣ No mensural cycle🥀 3️⃣Moodiness and mood swings🌪 4️⃣Extreme coldness all the time ❄️ 5️⃣ Low libido 😏 And so much more. As a seasoned competitor I assume and know the risk involved in competing but I love what prep teaches me and the discipline I develop. Lastly, as someone who has a bachelors in exercise science 🔬I love to look at my body as data and a science experiment! Dudes the human body is so cool and what you can do in a couple months amazes me! . . Ask me one question you have on competing. . . Suit by @angelcompetitionbikinis . .

1. Focus on Your Diet
Everyone has a 6-pack, and it's up to your diet to show them. The shape of your abs will be dependent on your genetics and shape of your torso. Some women have more obliques, and others have a more prominent midsection with defined blocks. To lose weight, you need to be in a calorie deficit. Calories in versus calories out. You can create this through tracking macros or through a meal plan.
