Building a set of cut abs requires a combination of a healthy diet and smart workouts that target every muscle of your core. And Jeremy Ethier, kinesiologist, fitness trainer, and founder of Built with Science, has just a solid workout plan you can use to do just that.

"Although your diet will be responsible for revealing your abs in the first place, your training will then be responsible for how developed and how well your abs and lower midsection look once they're finally revealed," says Ethier.

You should first understand your anatomy before you set out to do that. Ethier goes on to explain that there are four areas that make up your abs, and how each of these muscles play a significant role in sculpting out ripped abs.
