Abs are weird

    I mean, you can never really tell how they appear to others. Plus there's lighting. Are they there or are they not? They come and go even when you have a routine.

    What do you think about abs? Are they hard to keep up?

    Everybody has abs, but you have to have a low body fat percentage. Lighting affects how abs look. Lighting to the sides makes the abs looks more define while frontly lit, the abs will look muted.

    If you are lazy and don't want to work out, you could have a spray on absicon_twisted.gif.

    Yes it is spray on abs the product exists, he at that time may had some ab definition. If you are artistic, you can fool a person until closer look. It would look weird on a fat personicon_lol.gif.

    I've had ab definition for as long as I'd have any definition, without really having to try too hard. Even when I'm feeling "fat" I can still see my abs. I think it probably is a combination of genetics and just years of working out.... I'm more concerned with having a perky ass than showing my abs anyway, lol.

    Having nice abs isn't anywhere near the top of my list of desired "aesthetics".

    I'd rather be husky without abs than skinny with abs, idk. Abs are just a plus when everything else is on point.

    No one wants to be skinny anymore. Skinny the is the new fat.

    Take a pic of your abs . Then try contracting your abs forcefully for a full 60 seconds and take another pic. Huge difference .

    I'm bulking right now and I still kinda see them but I don't care much. They'll be back when I cut.
    Speaking of which, when I cut the past summer I realized that my abs were not symmetrical so I don't know if it's something I want to show.

    I've never had a huge attraction to a well defined abdomen. It always made think of something... insectlike? Really, Neck/clavicle area is where it is at, anyway.

    Abs are my favorite body part... oh, I do like the whole package most times, but the Abs being so hard to create, with mostly diet, and are usually the last muscles to show when bulking up and then leaning out to show definition, REALLY turn me on... I myself never knew what kind I had until a few years ago (see my photos). I love the fact they are the larger, thicker kind, the old "Chicklet" gum type, and not the skinny kind... they are so hard to keep though, if my diet fluctuates, as it has over time...
    I don't know about you guys, but I like the fact that if I just see a torso shot, no head or anything else, by the development of his Abs, I can pretty much guess that the guy is built everywhere elseā€¦
    Abs are soooo hot to me...

    I used to have some more defined abs when I was about 18-20 when I did a whole lot of crunches on a regular routinely basis but right now, they aren't all that noticeable unless I bend or inhale.

    Abs as a whole don't really do anything for me. I am much more into the subtle ab look. The kind where the guy may have some belly fat but yet, their abs are somewhat visible. That kind of thing is more appealing to me. Usually, I notice them on either off season bodybuilders or guys who workout their chest more than their abs.

    So pretty much this...

    But I will say that I have mad respect for those who are able to maintain their hard six packs. icon_smile.gif

    Having abs is, if nothing else, something of a goal of mine. Not for vanity reasons (mostly :winkicon_smile.gif, but more as proof to myself I've gotten my body to a fit point. It's nothing I'd kill for, but still be kinda cool to have.

    And if guy happens to have them, I'm not going to complain.

    Even the hot bodies cannot detract from the awfulness of this movie. Utterly dire. As Rotten Tomatoes puts it: "A tired, unfunny, offensive waste of time, Meet the Spartans scrapes the bottom of the cinematic barrel".

    My abs are best when I'm sick and have a mad cough.

    Otherwise, I accept that in my thirties I shouldn't have ridges on my stomach. I want to have a shirt that hangs off the chest instead of stomach, but ridged abs are a bit bizarre a concept to me and I'm not real keen to have them. I'm not entirely sure we are meant to either. It isn't exactly natural.

    A lot of the most healthy guys I have seen don't have this anomaly and a good thing, too. Abs are ok, but healthy bodies are beautiful without perfect ridges.

    I've always been turned on by someone with great abs, especially if it's combined with a nicely developed chest. I come from "large" stock, so I am more conscious of my abs and not wanting that beer belly. So I do at least two intense core workouts weekly. It has two benefits. The first is just having a tight stomach and looking fit (in or out of clothes). The second is that at almost 57 years old, I put my body through some grueling workouts and hard racing/endurance competitions and I remain injury-free - in large part because my foundation (core) is stabilized and strong.

    @ironman4u ... Mission accomplished. I've always been impressed by your lean, athletic abs.

    What a bunch of nonsense. Visceral fat is the most dangerous kind of fat.

    I'm 35 and reading this misinformation makes me cringe. It sounds like you're making excuses for letting your waistline get soft. You should know that maintaining muscle and low body fat in your thirties is imperative to putting you on track to have a nice physique in all the coming decades.

    And daily skincare is even more important than that, in terms of health and the prevention of premature aging.

    I'm a pretty skinny and slim guy. I'll admit I'm toned and have some muscle structure but not as much as other guys around my age 19 and other guys in college. My abs though seem more defined because of this. I don't normally focus on them in workouts or on other guys, I look at their chest, arms and calves. Those body parts get me going. Abs like most guys said are an added bonus but not necessary since the definition of abs is different for every body type.

    I realized people obsess way too much over abs, and do things that harm their overall fitness goals to keep them. Cutting down their diet to the point they can't even gain, or doing ridiculous cutting to get them and shred through any gains they might made made..

    I work mine weighted, but haven't seen them in a while to be honest. I will cut in the Spring and unless I defy nature, will have some abs under there.
