A lot of people run in to a problem a little after they have started exercising and that problem is the fact that even a few months after they have been going to the gym they are not able to get a lot of visible muscles. This usually ends up demotivating a lot of people to the point of them quitting the gym as they feel like they are not able to make too much of a difference despite the constant effort being put in. however the issue here is not that the exercises are not working and that the muscles are not being formed, the muscles are being formed but are hidden under a few layers of fat which are not that easy to get rid of. A lot of people face this specific problem when they are trying to get abs as the fat on the lower stomach is especially difficult to get rid of.
What you need to do in this situation is to start the bodybuilding cutting diet. This is a diet that decreases the amount of fats you eat by a huge margin and increases the proteins. While some of you might think that this is general advice, it is not. This diet is an important part of being able to show the muscles you have gained. An experienced person will take cycles of a bulking diet which helps build the muscles and then have a cutting phase which will reduce the amount of muscle being made but will cut out the fat from your body and reveal the hidden muscles underneath the fat. A controlled cycle of bulking and then cutting will mean that you will be able to build up muscles without wasting proteins and still be able to see the muscles later on.
