ABS vs CORE – Difference? | Do Squats & Deadlifts build a Six Pack? | Abs vs Core Training

People who get a great set of abs from squatting and deadlifting are the type of people who will also tell you their stats to go along with it. For example they’d say something like: “I only do compound movements like squats, bench, deadlift, I’m 38 years old and 6’2 220lbs and have abs.”

Did you notice something? He’s not telling you how you can get your own set of Abs. He’s only interested in showing off how little he can do and still get results!

Yes, some people are genetic freaks who can get jacked doing even the stupidest of things. But they’re not the ones who go out of their way like you do to look for articles like this because, why would they? They’ve already got what they want. You’re reading this article today because you want the results that seem so hard to get and the advice that the showoff gave you just wasn’t cutting it.

So you’re in the right place because today we’re going over why your average gym bro is wrong to give you advice about your Abs/Core. For starters they aren’t even the same thing yet everyone still seems to use the words “Abs” and “Core” like they’re interchangeable. If you wanted to get ripped abs by training your core then you’re in for a rough surprise at the end of your journey because chances are, you’re not going to get the results you want.

P.S. if you’ve been training your Core by thinking you were training your abs (or vice versa); how long have you been doing it for? Do you wish you could’ve had that time back after watching this video? Comment below!
