Got in from work to find the extent of this thread and just wanted to add my 2 cents.

I've been training for over 6 years now (started out due to playing national level basketball). This is just the kind of thing that you don't want to do if some sort of six-pack is your goal.

Although genetics plays a fair part in it all (mainly linked to your metabolism) anybody can get fair results if they follow some simple rules:

Train with weights 3-4 times a week
Eat sensibly (and intake plenty of water)
Train your abs like any other muscle group (1-2 a week with weights)

Crash dieting will NOT do anything but make you lose musle and glycogen making you look thin (not in a good way unless you are into Dior), flat and shapeless.

Find your avg daily calorie intake at which you maintain weight and reduce it by 500cals a day. 3500cals = 1lb of fat, therefore 1lb loss of fat a week. Anymore than 2lbs a week is not good.

If you are new to training with weights you are lucky in that you can see both muscle gain and fat loss (to some extent) and experience pretty rapid gains.

That said, real results only come from years of training and eating sensibly. You don't have to be obsessive, just all things in moderation. I train 3 times a week (abs once a week) and have gone from 6'2"@10st to 6'2"@14st all while keeping a low bodyfat. This is me just in from work:


Nothing special, just in relatively good shape whilst still enjoying burgers and beer whenever I want. Or course, if and when I go on holiday, I focus on fat loss and really define things, but otherwise I am never actually dieting.

You don't have to be gay or anything. I just kept training due to my competitive sports in the past.

I applaud anyone who wants to simply look after their body.

I think thats the sort of target. but it does look like your breathing in!
Not that it effects the fat layer, but seems to pull in the sides of your chest abit.

Hey, KinA! Don't start smoking to get a 6 pack…both are unnatractive on women. A slim stomach is nice on a woman but not a 6 pack, your looking fine anyway!

so if i drink water instead of milkshake with my thrice daily mcdonalds supersize meal i will deffo get a six pack you are saying yeah? thats well cool

I admit, I LOL'd. At your stupidity no less.

"The key to this people is to implement your balanced diets and workout routines but remember to drink water like never before. It speeds up every metabolic process exponentially and will get you the results you want. If you want a drink, have Vodka because it's 60 calories per shot are purely alcohol based so you'd have nothing to worry about. FACT".

Cool

Your confusing me now, and im getting all of a fluster, i have got 2 big macs and a double quarter pounder with cheese in front of me, what do i help to wash it down to get my six pack, water or fucking vodka?? im well confused.

It doesn't matter, but drinking 2.7 Litres of Vodka a day would be a killer for your internal organs and dehydrate you …kind of the opposite goal we are trying to achieve.

And it's obviously true you can overdose on water, just drink around 3 Litres a day if poss and after a month you'll notice a vast improvement.

So is this real?! A bird drops in, claiming smoking will help her out?!
Laughing out loud And whats with the photoshop job?! Laughing out loud

Incase it is real, (just incase), I dont really think girls need a six pack, a flat stomach looks good perhaps, but so do curves like what you have already, and you look good.
