Will Pilates give you abs?
Pilates will help you build up your abs and core muscles (and a lot of other muscle groups too), but weather they start to show is dependant on you and your lifestyle. Unfortunately, there is no easy way to lose weight and gain that rippling '6 pack' that you desire. You have heard it all before - diet and exercise is key. One of my favorite sayings related to this question is: ‘Abs are made in the kitchen’ and it couldn’t be more true. Very few people have a 6 pack - and there is a very good reason for that - it is hard work! If it was easy for people to gain those nice shredded abs then everybody would have them. But it’s not easy. Pilates will contribute to the exercise component of the ‘gaining abs’ journey by burning calories and building muscle, but overall lifestyle and commitment to your diet will determine if your abs will show shine through or not.
