Get Eightpack – 3 Tips for the Ultimate Abs

You’ve already built a six pack and now you want to make it an eight pack? If and how that works, that’s what today is all about. In this article, I’ll show you 3 tips you can use to get an eight pack!

#1 Check the structure of your abdominal muscles

First of all, you should check the structure of your abs. Depending on genetics, our muscles have a certain structure from birth that we can change in size but not in shape. In the case of the abdominal muscles, this concerns both the number of abdominal muscles (some can have not only 6 or 8, but even 10 or even only 4) and whether they are staggered or parallel. If you already have abs or a six pack, palpating and pulling down the body fat on your lower abs can check if you have another division and two more or more abs.

#2 Achieve very low body fat percentage

For the six pack, everyone has it, but whether it is visible depends on the amount of body fat you have. It’s the same with the eight pack, except that you have to have even less body fat for it to be visible. The reason for this is that the limiting factor of the Eightpack is the lower abs, above which we humans tend to have more body fat than above the upper and middle abs. This means that you need to reduce your body fat percentage to 10-12% or lower, depending on your body fat distribution, which you will primarily achieve with a fat loss diet.

#3 Focus on training your lower abs

To get an eight-pack, you should strengthen your lower abs with targeted training in addition to proper nutrition. When you do basic exercises, such as deadlifts, squats, bench press, etc., the upper and middle abs are usually already strongly developed. The lower abdominal muscles on the other hand, tend to be not only covered with more body fat, but also weaker developed, because although they also stabilize (the torso) during basic exercises, but with the drawing of the legs to the upper body, they mainly have a different function. Since this is a movement that we don’t have too often in everyday life and strength training, it makes sense to incorporate different forms of leg raises (leg raises lying down, hanging leg raises, etc.) preferably performed heavy with additional weight and also lower numbers of repetitions, into the training.


Whether you can get an eightpack is genetically determined. If you have the genetic prerequisites, it is, as with the six-pack, largely a question of body fat percentage and the corresponding diet to lower it and keep it low. But you can also visually shape and strengthen your eight-pack with targeted training of your lower abs.
