People just go about getting abszes the wrong way. Eat a lot. Sprint a lot. Lift heavy ****. Play a lot of sports--where you sprint a lot, too.
Eh. Abz on a guy. Not so much.

And, this should be added to the sticky as well.

It is not okay for any guy to squat less than I do. I'm old and not that strong.

Shush.

Seriously, though. No more 20 something year old men who weigh less than I do and squat less than I do. I forbid it.

Agreed! And everyone who doesn’t fit this description should head to the nearest Brazilian BBQ joint IMMEDIATELY!

Exactly. Abs as a side effect of being generally athletic are great. Abs as an end in themselves, achieved by starving yourself to the point where you *can't* be athletic... not so much.

Who do you think the cheerleaders are watching? The guy who makes the game-winning play, or the skinny benchwarmer (with abz!)?

WFS (but may cause you to gouge out your eyeballs in frustration)
Mother of God. I had seen her stupid video before with the "no woman should ever lift more than 3 pounds" comment, but that diet plan is a whole new level of insanity.

Quote:
The lack of absorbable calcium (less than 300mg - the body needs 800mg a day) means you risk earlyonset osteoporosis and osteopenia too - something that Gwyneth has been diagnosed with.
Not a coincidence, and not solely the result of a lack of calcium. I wonder if there are 700 calories in Gwyneth's entire body. Well, maybe if you ate her bone marrow, which apparently would be easy to get at.


+1 Katherine. Seriously overweight people should eat calorie restricted diets, athletes should not.

Subtle difference, but you're right.

Most of my friends squat less than you...I guess they're weak then?

I might've mispoke, I'm sure college girls do love abs for the most part. But abs on a skinny guy is like designer clothes on an obese woman.
