Why I Decided To Write This
Book
I decided to write this book about because there has been a
large amount of people that will post comments on my
YouTube videos and ask me basically the same question, “How
long does it take for me to get a six pack”. Since I really
appreciate my fans, I decided to write this informative book for
you.
The very first fact that I want to present to you is that it is
almost impossible to accurately tell you how long it will take
you to get a six pack. Genetics plays a very important role in
determining how long it will take you. Another important factor
that we need to consider is an individual’s determination. No
one but yourself really knows how dedicated you are to obtain
your six pack. So in result, even though you’ll find out how long
it will take you to get a six pack, you might not put 100% effort
and therefore will take you longer than anticipated.

With that being said, always know that it isn’t how long it takes
to reach your goal, it’s the fact that you never gave up.

How Long Will It Take To Get
My Six Pack
There are three things that we must know In order to
determine the length of time:
· Current body fat percentage
· How much body fat you are going to lose each week
· The body fat percentage that you will start to see your abs
#1 – Calculating Body Fat Percentage
Ok the first piece of data that we need is your current body fat
percentage. The most accurate test to determine this is called a
body composition test performed at a hospital but since most
people don’t want to take that route, fortunately there are
calculators that we can use. Click here to determine your body
fat percentage.

#2 – How Quickly Will You Be Able To Burn Fat
In this step, we need to determine how much fat you will lose
per week. For men, most of their fat is stored around their belly
and losing that fat can be difficult. The exact rate of how much
fat you will lose per week depends on different factors such as
your determination, healthy eating habits, exercise routine, etc.
Generally, people that are more overweight tend to lose weight
faster compared to a person that is only marginally overweight
because they use more calories to move. The average person
should be losing 0.5% - 0.7% body fat per week. If you are really
dedicated, you should be losing at least 1% body fat per week.
#3 – Determining When your Six Pack Should Be
Showing
Generally for men, your six pack should be showing at around
7% - 8% body fat. For women, it’s going to be around 16% - 20%
body fat.

The size of your abs will play a big role in how much they will
show. The more developed and bigger your abs is, the easier it
is to see them. So if you are already have a low body fat
percentage and you still cannot see your six pack, you need to
increase the size of your abs by doing more six pack exercises.

The Formula
Now the moment you’ve been waiting for. Now that we have
all the data, it is now time to plug these numbers into the
formula to give as an approximation.
Male Formula:
(Current Body Fat% - 7/ (Body Fat Loss Per Week) = Number of
weeks to get a six pack
Female Formula:
(Current Body Fat% - 18/ (Body Fat Loss Per Week) = Number of
weeks to get a six pack
Example:
Current Body Fat Percentage: 20%
Body Fat Lost Per Week: 0.3%
Six Pack Start Showing: 7%
Gender: Male
(Current Body Fat% - 7/ (Body Fat Loss Per Week) = Number of
weeks to get a six pack
(20 – 7) / 0.5 = 26 weeks (approximation)

Conclusion
Even though these steps helped you to determine the
approximated length, try not to focus too much on the length
of time. I believe that you will eventually get a six pack if you
have a good exercise routine, eating habits, and determination.
A lot of people give up because they either rush to try to get
results or are just lazy. Don’t be like those people and always
believe that you can do it!
