You might say " then abs can be made in the kitchen?" The answer is "maybe" but the kitchen does not make a supportive, strong core that bring you a lot more benefits than just the look. Let's go through the reasons why it's important to train for strong core rather than just try to have a good look six pack.

Without an engaged core, your balance and stability can suffer, therefore, increases risk of injuries and reduces the effectiveness of other exercises.
