First thing is first here cheers to you for starting a healthy lifestyle and an early age, it will put you well ahead of the game later down the road. Now when talking about a six pack here, well since your so young and either starting/gowing through puberty your testosterone levels are growing and your noticing changes on yor body. As you get older diet will be very important for either maintaining your abs or improving on them. There are various excersizes out there for working on your abs. Different variations to all your classic ab excersizes have been developed. Planks galore! Do research on planks, no im not talking about the new fad "planking". But its core work, your core is what strengthens your entire body, weak core, weak body, strong core, strong body. Some people rely only on core workouts to work on their abs. As far as your nightly routine, depending on what you have to work with and the space you have. You can do different crunches, side crunches, elbow to kneecap crunches, weighted crunches, flutter kicks, holding your feet above the gound 6 inches for 30 seconds. Theres so much you can do with your abs. Go to www.muscleandfitness.com or www.menshealth.com for info on specific ab workouts.

How to get 6 pack abs without doing situps As a London Personal Trainer I often get asked how to develop a strong core and 6 pack stomach muscles. It seems that so many people are still practicing old exercises and cranking out hundreds of situps on a daily basis in the hope of reducing stomach fat and developing their 6 pack abs. Doing regular sit ups or crunches will not only give you back problems but doesn't really help in develping your core and revealing your stomach muscles. Our core / stomach muscles are more complex than you may think and need to be worked in three different planes of motion for optimal results. Doing regular situps and crunches is both unnatural and only addresses one plane of movement, and it's not very good at doing that. As well as taking the core / stomach muscles through 3 different planes of movement the body fat covering the abdominals must also be addressed. Forget the old wives tale about spot reducing fat, this simply isn't the case, hundreds of situps won't burn stomach fat - fat naturally comes off in layers from all over the body. The only way to reduce stomach fat is with a good total body exercise programme and by eating a healthy diet. Remember that we all have stomach muscles waiting to be seen under our belly fat but in order to increase their size and make them more visable they need to be trained like any other body part. So, a combination of the correct abdominal / core exercises, a healthy diet and a good all over body routine will bring your 6 pack abs out for all to see. I have found the following 6 exercises to be the best for stabalising your core and reducing potential back pain whilst bringing your abdominals / obliques to the surface. 1. The Side Plank - keep your hips inline, belly button in and maintain this postition for as long as possible. Start with 30 secs and increase up to 2 minutes over time. Breathe! 2. The Front Plank - keep your body in a straight line, belly button in and arms at 90 degrees. Start with 30 secs and increase up to 2 minutes over time. Breathe! 3. The Bird Dog - keep your back flat, belly button pulled in, thumb up and out at 45 degrees. Opposite leg goes straight back. Start with 6 reps on each side and work up to 3 sets of 12. 4. The Front Mountain Climber - in a press up position with you back flat and belly button pulled in bring your knee straight up to your chest. Breathe out as you do so and contract your abdominals as if you were being punched in the stomach. Take leg back and repeat. Start with 6 on each side and work up to 3 sets of 12. 5. The Outside Mountain Climber - as above but drop your hips slightly and bring your knee to the outside of your elbow. Squeeze the side of your stomach, your obliques, together as if being folded in half sideways. 6. The Inside Mountain Climber - as with the above mountain climber but bring your knee across and squeeze the side of your stomach muscles (obliques). Perform all these exercises 3 times a week along with your regular workout for the ultimate strong core and the highly ellusive six pack stomach muscles. Good luck and enjoy your new abs!!

Well it depends on a few things...Firstly, it depends on your body type and person (i.e. male/female,) and how much you weigh. For example, if you are 14 and a girl, I wouldn't recommend trying to get a six pack because your body hasn't finished properly developing. You should wait a few years and then decide if you still want that type of look...However, if you are male, once again you aren't finished growing but you can still shoot for a six pack. The time it takes to get one will vary according to your current percentage fat, height, weight, etc. The body percentage of fat required for a six pack to appear is 7% which is not alot....Some people aren't able to get six packs because trying to maintain a diet for such a body can be unhealthy. On average, healthy men and women have approximately 30% body fat and extreme athletes have between 12-17% body fat. So this appearance is not for everyone. It is up to you to decide because you know your body best. So unfortunately there is no exact answer to your question, but I'd estimate that it takes several months to get a solid six pack. Hope this helps!

you're a bit young to be doing so many sit ups. Remember you are still growing and developing. All those sit ups could be harmful honey. But in answer to your question that amount of sit ups for a 6 weeks could produce a six pack. That also depends on your physical shape. But don't work out so much as you're still growing :)

You have them. Every one has them. They are just not visible. They are covered by a layer of fat. These muscles are working 24 hours a day non stop, moving the food through the system. and you can not exercise them they just work all the time. So next thing is to do abdominal exercises to make them visible. Include front, back ,side bends. Also include total body work out then see the results in 4 weeks, as at first , the fat in the joint of these muscles are crushed and they wil start to show, getting a fat free wash boar type fat abdomen is a matter of time and additional efforts on your part.
