I got in a huge beef (with two guys actually, but different subjects) on other message boards. And it pissed me off that both times I was proven wrong. The second argument I'm more worried about (and yes, it's on a jpop forum board; I go there to ask questions about Japan and such because I'm moving there soon). I told the people intrested in this forum post that to get big abbs they need to do heavy-weighted sets, but then some guy buts in and tells everyone that, "Oh hey guys, nut uh. PhilsterT is full of crap. Do high amount of reps for the abbs because it will make them aesthetically pleasing. If you do weighted sets than you will have blockey and ugly abbs." I was like, "No man, you're wrong." He of course posts his picture, and of course, he's ****in' ripped. So...is all this croack wrong? Can you do high repition?
(It's like halfway down the page on page 17.)
Well hell, why do a few sets of weighted crunches once or twice a week when I could just WALK (for an hour and a half a day...)
Yeah I think the whole high-reps for nice abs myth is one of the most prominant ones out there. It sucks that the guy is ripped LOL but you know how people are, if a guy is well-built then everything he says is fact. It doesn't matter, let him work out how he wants and let the groundlings work out how they want and when they don't get results they'll feel stupid and you'll just be ripped.
Lol...you can't determine what shape your abs are going to become by what kind of ab exercises you do. And just because he's ripped doesn't mean he knows jack. Just like how you sometimes see huge guys in the gym who go 1/8 of an inch down when they squat. Phil, you are right don't worry about that guy. Listen to Built...she can show you some pics too. Heh.
yeh, ive never once met this guy...Originally Posted by fixationdarknes
i would hope someone who has been bodybuilding for as long as he did would have a bigger chest than that, what a douchebag... hes full of it but abs are really more about the bf% than the exercise. high reps or low reps you still wind up with abs if you have low bf and do some form of exercise, i would say though that you are MORE right than him.
Phil you are right to a point. To increase size do weighted crunches etc.
but to be able to see them your diet and cardio are hte key factors.
One of my favorite Built-ism's is : ":Abs are made in the kitchen"
I'll remember it till I die.
Out of the night that covers me,Black as the Pit from pole to pole,I thank whatever gods may be for my unconquerable soul. In The fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance my head is bloody, but unbowed. Beyond this place of wrath and tears looms but the horror of the shade And yet the menace of the years finds, and shall find, me unafraid. It matters not how strait the gate how charged with punishments the scroll,I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.

If he wants small balls, let him think steroids are safer than creatine.
Thanks for the responses. I just hate getting in beefs with people. It's not often that I find people who know what they're doing too a certain extenet. I of course can't post my picture because I'm in my bulk and no one will believe me.
