Discover how to build 3D abs by doing these 7 exercises that you are very likely not doing right now.
Before we get to the 7 exercises that you should be doing, it is important to understand that abs will only show if you have a relatively low body fat percentage. That can vary from person to person, but usually, for men it is below 13% and for women below 18%.
In this episode of how to build 3D abs, coach Zach Zenios goes through a series of exercises to accomplish that. Zenios is a marine veteran, NASM certified and fitness coach. He shared his workout via Critical Bench, a website focused on health and strength with a YouTube channel with more than 1 million subscribers.

According to Zenios, a lot of the time when people do their core workout, they don’t get the rep scheme and the intensity right.
He says that doing supersets of core exercise, or having 20-30 reps turns an ab exercise into a cardio routine which can build endurance, but not strength, hypertrophy and the look that most people want.
So check out Zenios’ answer to how to build 3D abs. You will be mostly doing reps in the 4-12 range and with added resistance. Here is the list:
- Standing Vacuum / Tabletop Vacuum
