It was recently reported that Kareena Kapoor Khan will be the first Indian actress to build a six pack abs for her next film Shuddhi. While Hollywood actresses from Hilary Swank to Mila Kunis all sport washboard abs, none of them sport a six-pack abs. That’s a guy thing, no?
Says a filmy fitness trainer, “Six-pack abs tend to be reserved for those in their teens and 20s. It gets more difficult as we age because we get more subcutaneous body fat.
It is possible even in over-30s but genetically, women have a disadvantage when it comes to that. Their bodies store more fat than men because women’s bodies are designed to bear and nourish babies. Women have lower body fat enough to get six-pack abs and that might even interrupt their menstrual cycle.”
