No body part has gotten more attention, admiration, or is more sought after than abdominals. Every fitness magazine has something on the cover about abs. What they fail to tell you is that you need to diet and lose the body fat to see the abs-- but everyone has abs!

In this video men's style, grooming, fitness and lifestyle expert, Aaron Marino of IAmAlphaM, AaronMarino, and Pete & Pedro is recommends a good diet with fasted cardio to melt the body fat off of your abdominals.
