NO!  This starts entering a different part of fitness, cardio, diet, circuit based programs, In order to torch the fat that stops your abs from being visible. First step to seeing visible abs is to make sure you calorie expenditure is greater than your calorie intake. Once you have this under control you are then able to start thinking about the fastest way to burn fat for yourself as an individual, everyone burns fat at a different rate.
