    Geting big or geting those 6 pack

    My friend keeps telling me I should be doing more ab exsercises but I dont really see the point as wouldnt it casue probelms with building of mass. I've noticed that when id o alot of abs that my stomach becomes wider. Is this a bad thing bsc I dont find women with wide stomachs that sexy

    abs are solely to impress all the lil girlies that see the 140lbs abercrombie models with a 6 pack and think it looks good....dont get me wrong, yes they are important for overall strength and its good to keep them strong, but u wont find me doing countless situps or cardio for a visible 6 pack. being able to look big wearing normal clothes (having mass) is wayyyy more impressive to me then having a little 6 pack when u pull up ur shirt

    call me a pussy

    but i like my abs....core strength is still important in major lifts. i'm all for putting on size, but compliment is with the total package. IMO great abs show attention to detail in a physique. never seen a guy onstage with no abs.

    abs are good, and ur rite they definitely do compliment overall physique, the thing i dont understand are the people that only concentrate on their abs that weigh 145lbs, and hardly put any effort into the rest of their body....but i dont know i guess everybody just has different goals

    guys are more impressed by mass and girls are more impressed by definition.... Why would you care about impressing guys??? j/k that is what all my friends tell me b/c they are just little guys. I laugh when i am getting all the girls... But i admit that i do get more when i am in the single digit bodyfat..

    You have to have muscle mass first or else you have nothing to "cut"

    There is a time for fat gain (caloric excess to gain muscle) and there is a time for fat loss (cutting, maintaining muscle)

    think about it like this muscle need atleast 7 days to heal why would you want to work youre abs more then other parts of youre body, work them out once a week and you should see better results

    Low bodyfat is the key to seeing abs. If you're going for mass, don't worry about abs right now... I actually prefer to have a slight belly while I'm bulking, it lets me know I'm eating enough calories to be gaining muscle.

    The cutting sticky has good tips on preserving muscle while cutting. Keeping protein intake up and a PWO shake with protein and dextrose are essential, as well as AM cardio (not too high of a heart rate though)

    Bulk during the winter, cut for the summer, in the winter u wear clothes that cover ur entire body so size is better, summer less clothes so u can cut down n get that 6 pack in shape. I am not into comps or nething so i go soley on looks, and what I feel is my best look. idk sounds superficial but **** well be getting all the ass!!!!
