    Lazy won't get a six pack. Six pack takes time, work, and strict attention to diet and exercise program. I would migrate this to fitness, but it would be closed fairly quickly for being poor quality and a duplicate. Here are a couple links for you to investigate: fitness.stackexchange.com/questions/9979/… fitness.stackexchange.com/questions/12221/… fitness.stackexchange.com/questions/3447/… – JohnP Mar 8 '17 at 2:32

    Starve yourself to 6% body fat. With no exercise this will make you scrawny and weak, and it's not healthy at all, but you'll have visible abs and that's about the only way you're going to get them if you take the lazy route. – Carey Gregory Apr 11 '17 at 17:22
  • @JohnP Can we close this question as duplicates of another site or would we have to migrate it? I fear that it might attract some low-quality/insufficient answers as it doesn't really belong to Health.SE but rather Fitness.SE – Narusan Apr 12 '17 at 14:30

You to prioritise high tension low rep range over large rep range with lower tension.

The key in building muscle is something called 'Time under tension'.

A good number of reps for hypertrophy (building muscle) is 8-12 whereas for building strength a good range is <6. You want to build muscle, not strength! (understand the difference :)) (A keynote is this: the abdominals are muscle, and need to be trained accordingly - e.g., they need the same kind of attention as any other muscle; tension > volume) (A second keynote: approiate tension is key, chose a weightrange where you fail after 12 reps.)

You also need to eat a solid diet, and a low (e.g. very low 6-10% BF, the lower you go the morw definition you get)

Lastly, there are no shortcuts - many (especially product advertisers) would have you believe this; this is false!!)

Visit a site like www.t-nation.com and read some articles - you'll have to educate yourself a little to reach your goal.

I believe theese are the keypoints to achieving a six-pack. Next up you'll have to research some exercises yourself. And remember, regular situps will not do much, the key is ToT (time under tension).. :)

Sorry bout the bad grammar also, was written in a rush.
