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?

    Six pack - Please!

    Hello people!

    I have read a lot of good articles on developing a six pack, not least of all on this site, but also on many others, such as http://www.makemuscle.net

    The thing is I still don't have a six pack. I'm lean, not much fat down there at all. And the rest of my muscles seem fine, but no six pack. Any advise on getting a bit of shape down there would be gratefully appreciatted.

    What's lean to you? If you're sub-10% you should be seeing some stomach definition. If you're lean and you can't see the abs then I would suggest some weighted ab work.

    Unless you are anatomically incorrect, you have abs. So you are simply not lean enough. Quite often guys will be lean around the shoulders and arms yet still have copious amounts of fat on the legs and mid-section. You just gotta keep going with the diet.

    Six Pack??

    Hi guys,

    Lots of good advise there - thanks. I'll keep on dieting and maybe up the weight that I use on my abs.

    I do have a bit of a feeling that maybe genetically I'm a bit poor around the abs - but I'll keep on training and hopefully surprise myself

    Six Pack!!!

    Hi,

    Good advise as I said earlier. One other question though. Are abdominal crunches recommended over sit-ups for definition? I have heard conflicting opinions.

    Cheers again!

    You can do crunches, or weighted situps (hold a plate to your chest while doing them), or cable crunches (go on your knees by the cable machine, hold the cable behind your head, and curl head to knees). These are all good exercises for your abs. Also, straight leg raises are a good one. Just go into a dipping station, rest on your elbows so your feet are dangling, keep em straight and then raise them up in the air to at least 90 degrees.
