There’s nothing like being proud and showing off your rock-hard abs that you worked so hard for. Unfortunately, many people build up their six pack only to notice that their abs are uneven. Having uneven abs is actually much more common than you’d think.
Numerous professional bodybuilders have won competitions despite the fact that their abs weren’t properly aligned. This fact still doesn’t stop many people with this issue from wondering whether there is something they can do to fix their uneven six pack. When it comes to uneven and disproportionate abs, here is what you can and can’t do.
The Issue of Uneven Abs
Although you might think the fact that your abs don’t line up is embarrassing, the truth is that most people probably won’t even notice. This is important to remember as, unfortunately, there is nothing that you can do to correct the issue.
If one side of your ab muscles is higher or lower than the other, you should start getting used to it. Your abs are uneven because that’s how your genes programmed them to be, and no amount of bending, twisting, or training can override genes.
If your abs are staggered or uneven, that is just how your body is shaped. However, there is one thing you can do should you notice your abs are disproportionately sized. For instance, when the top abs are smaller than the bottom abs, or vice-versa.
If you have disproportionate abs you’ll want to focus on exercises that work out the less profound ones. Try doing decline crunches to train the upper abs. For the lower abs try hanging leg and knee raises or reverse crunches. If the muscle imbalance is from side to side, it generally means that you’re letting your dominant side do too much work when you exercise. To fix it, you should focus more on training your other side to help balance out your muscles.
While there isn’t anything you can do to fix uneven abs, disproportionate abs are easily reversible. There no better way to obtain the ideal physique than having a personal trainer.
