Everyone wants a six-pack.  It may in fact be the most sought after physical trait in history.  What most people don’t realize, however, is that a six-pack has zero correlation to how strong your core actually is or how well it functions. (It’s also worth mentioning that having a six pack has more to do with how you train in the kitchen than anything else, but that’s a convo for another time.)

Luckily, you can have your cake and eat it too. What I’m about to suggest doesn’t throw the six-pack out the window, but rather, makes it a byproduct of training for functionality and performance.  In short, if your diet is in line and you train the core for maximum performance, then the aesthetics will take care of themselves.
