    Thats right, you just sit there and rot in your dirty string vest and slacks, no point trying to do anything about it, right? :rollno:

    Some people think it's worth the effort.

    Laziest, most uninspired, ignorant, depressed, ugliest post of the day.

    If you want a better life, exercise. We live in a vain and superficial world, if you want to be functioning at top performance and treated with respect; live a healthy lifestyle.

    ...also flexing in the mirror and seeing a ripping tricep is pretty damn cool.

    For losing fat, dieting is much better. Ask anybody who's abs you can see what they eat. You'll stop wanting those abs. It's just too much of a hassle. Compensate for it by having a huge chest and arms. Stuff a sock in your underwear, too.
  7. Great thread.

    About three weeks ago, I started exercising too, cause my brother bought a weight set and put it in the basement, so I figured I'd might as well make use of it. Also, my dad being such a bike enthusiast, we've got about 7 nice bikes in the garage, so I'll start doing cardio too, as soon as it's not so hot out around here. I really don't need to lose weight though, I need to gain it. I'm so skinny that I really don't think I have anything for my muscle to build on, so I have to start eating right too.

    I''ve been pretty faithful with my crunches, doing them at least every other day. But it's my understanding that traditional crunches only work out your upper abs. What can I do work out all of my abs, or will bicycling take care of that?

    No such thing as "upper" abs. It's one set of muscles.
  9. Seriously? wow, I feel a bit silly now :smug:

    Well yeah, I'd advocate a good diet in any circumstances. Even if you're not looking to lose weight, a good diet will give you more energy and make you feel better in general.

    No, I mean you actually have to count calories and stuff to get a six-pack. It's not easy.

    Abs don't show up unless you've got like, <10% body fat. My buddy had 12% (he was obsessed with bodybuilding but only lifted, if he'd done cardio he easily would've been down to 8 or so) and you could kiiiiinda see 'em.

    Allow me to suggest an exercise method.

    Get an active dog. Take him on good long walks. Get the Ipod loaded up, set the stopwatch, grab a poop bag, wear some big loose cargo shorts and tuck some water bottles into those thigh pockets, and start counting the miles. I love my brother's dog because he loves long treks through the neighborhood. He's awesome for that.

    Get a Collie, or an English Springer Spaniel, or a Husky, or a Weimarauner, or a Yellow Lab, or something medium to large in the working breeds. Plus, dogs are the best exercise trainers. If you start a regular walking/hiking/jogging regimen, their babyface expectation of that daily routine will keep you on that regimen! Cuz they'll start so sulk around you and break your heart with their pouty face until the two of you go get your exercise! Heh heh.

    I'm sure Joe Rogan has quoted this fact during a UFC event before!
