    Good genetics but no abs

    I have good genetics that I can eat junk food and still gain weight and not look fat. I have great definition. Great cuts in my chest, shoulders, arms and such. Only problem is I have a belly. I know I should diet properly but it's so easy to gain weight eating anything, should I just do a shit load of ab work and I'll be good?? Even if I can't get a six pack I would be happy with at least washboard abs.

    6 pack = dedication. Stick to a proper cutting diet till you see what you want.

    If you have a belly, how can you say you have great genetics in that you can eat what you want and not get fat?

    Belly = fat.

    It doesn't look fat at all, It's basically nothing. A lil belly. But I want a nice stomach not nothing although it's not bad at all. lol know what I mean?

    Last time I checked you can't spot reduce fat. It's called lypo or a strict diet, sorry no way around it.

    those abs i have in that pic took a looonnnggg time to achieve. it happend with clean eating and only healthy carb loads (no cheating) i have realized that to keep a six pack year round takes dedication. I'm content with having one for about 4 - 6 months outta the year (competition season).

    Not sure how broomstick twists would burn localized fat because that is just not physically possible.

    doing broomstick twist would help work the oblique muscle's tighting them up helping shape them building some lean tissue on your oblique's in other words help shape up your midsection, i see how you can not spot reduce by doing just somple twist, but i was told by a national competitor that it will help " burn " fat off your obliques by building lean tissue there....am i wrong ?? please inform me with the correct info

    I don't believe in that twisting crap to get abs. I never twisted one time and got'em.

    Quite simply, yes as I said before you are wrong, and so is the "national competitor".

    You CANNOT burn fat in one area by building lean tissue on that area..........that does NOT MOBILIZE FAT TO BE BURNED W/OXYGEN!!!!!!

    If anything, you add muscle over/under the fat, thus making your waist WIDER!!!!!!

    Just like those ladies at the gym doing side-bends w/20 lb. d-bells hoping to trim their waists.

    They are making a THICKER WAIST.

    I used to do those...damn if I didn't stop once my waist size changed! All I do for obliques these days ( except for as noted above ) is cross-crunch sit-ups.

    Maybe if a few other senior members tell steveO he is wrong he will listen, I don't think it's sinking in.

    I don't like to "correct" people, I just like to analyze and expose why things that people may think would work, really don't work.

    "Correcting" people has a negative connotation and I wasn't tryin' to be negative.
