How Long Does It Take To Get Abs: Women
Obese (>39% Body Fat)
For women, body fat over 39% is the longest road to getting abs. You’re looking at losing 40 lbs or more before your belly is flat enough for abs.
But don’t let that scare you off. Because before you get abs, your body will transform significantly.
With 6 months of hard work, your abs could make an appearance. And you could have a full-blown 6-pack in 8 months.
Overweight (32-39% Body Fat)
More and more women are finding themselves in this category. As the stresses of modern life collide with fast food, being overweight is the new normal.
But let’s not settle for normal! In as little as 3 and a half months, you could be leaner than average. And you could have a 6-pack in 5 months.
Average (25-32% Body Fat)
If you find yourself in the average category, you may still be unhappy with the way you look. But the good news is, a little work will go a long way for you.
With just 6 to 8 weeks of dedication, you could start seeing abs. And you could see all 6 in as little as 3 months.
Athletic (18-25% Body Fat)
If you’re in the athletic category, you’re already leaner than the vast majority of women. You should have some ab definition if you’re at 24% body fat or lower.
And if you’re looking to get a super toned 6-pack, you could get there in 1 to 3 months. Depending on your starting point.
Very Lean (<18% Body Fat)
For women who want that fitness model look, your target is 17% body fat. At this level of leanness, you should have a tight, flat belly. And a noticeable 6-pack to boot.
