The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Do I have a Fat-Pack or Six-Pack?

    I see a lot of posts indicating that you need a low body fat typically of 10% percent to see your abs. Now I am confused because I believe that my body fat is between 19%-21% percent and I can see the two top pack and just barely the two middle ones. I am not sure if my abs are well developed and that is why they are visible or I am just a freak whose cellulite is conveniently shaped like a six pack.

    I have seen some people who look heavy and have a six pack, so I am guessing it is possible to have a slightly visible one with a high body fat percentage. I remember one time I saw Harvey Kitel in Bad Lieutenant and he had a six pack even though he was pretty thick. I think during the time frame he did a couple of movie were he showed his pecker, The Piano being among them. Anyway, that is a whole other story.

    So can some people have a visible six-pack even with a high percent body fat? I am not going to post a pic or anything because I am very self conscious although I know that would help determine if it is just fat. My wife told me without me asking her that she could see my six-pack, but my wife doesnít know what she is talking about. I don't do direct abs work, but keep my stomach tight during all my exercises. I do Squats, Deadlifts, Dips, Bench Press.

    Also, I am getting my body fat percentage from a scale so that maybe off, but I donít think the error margin is that great. I wonít get it tested by the pros because once again I ma very self-conscious.
