Thanks to everyone who replied. Based on the variety of responses, it seems there's a lot of interpretation to what my question "Can everyone get six pack abs?" means. It can mean:
- on the extreme end: "Can everyone get a solid 8-pack
that you can rest your pinky in the crevices?" or
- on the basic end (which is what I meant): "Can everyone get any sort of visible definition
where there are noticeable lines of a 4-pack?"
I'm wondering if people who are saying "no," are only saying "no" to the first question, and if not, what do they look like when they're body fat is really low.
The people saying "yes," as I've heard time and again say to do core exercises and most importantly, watch nutrition, which I've been very diligent about and have had great success with. So I'm continuing with that.
Finally, a personal response to GWM. I appreciate the compliments and the pep talk
. However, I'm really not sure about the argument of being "natural" because I don't think the state of my body now is what my natural state would be. My natural state would have my body with a little bit of pudge because I really enjoy good food that's not necessarily optimal for the functioning needs of my body. I look great now, and if I make an effort to change my lifestyle as I have been, this can be very natural. But what's not to say adding some washboard abs can't be natural as well?
