What Body Fat Percentage Do I need To See Abs? Q&A of The Week

Every week I answer a question or questions that are sent in to me regarding fat burning, weight loss, diet, fitness and or the Fat X program. I've been a little busy but I'm back and today's question is in regards to losing belly fat and body fat percentage in order to see abs. 

Hi Coach,
I have some belly fat that I want to get rid of so I can get a six pack for the summer.  I went to get it checked and they told me I was at 14% body fat.  How low do I need to get that to see abs and how many times through you program do you think I would need.
Thanks For The Help,

Generally speaking, in order to begin seeing your abs, your body fat has to under 10%. The closer you get to 5% the more ripped and defined they're going to look.  When I slack off and relax too much, my body fat percentage will go over 10% and it usually takes me one time through the FX 12  to get in back under.  If I do it again soon enough I really get my abs to show. My FX 12 project for 2010 is a good example.  Good luck!
