Anyone got an 8 pack?

for their ab muscles.
I got the 4, i guess i can call it a 6. but the bottom muscles seems longer than the top 4. So i want to work out the bottom ab muscles to get an 8 pack.

Anyone got an 8 pack? What exercises are you doing?

Re: Anyone got an 8 pack?

I do, I do! And I don't exercise, it's just good genes and being a skinny mofo. I'm 5'10" and about 145 pounds. I don't really exercise, persay, but I do stay very active, although I eat like a pig. I used to run cross country which got me into really good shape. The best thing I ever used for working the stomach is an ab roller. It's basically a wheel with some handles that you grab onto, get onto your knees, and then roll your upper body out until it's nearly parallel with the floor. Then you roll back in an repeat. All you have supporting your body is your knees, and the wheel connected to your hands. It puts a tremendous amount of stress on your stomach, and always gave me the fastest results. There's lots of variations of that device, they all work pretty good. I bought this http://www.asseenontv.com/prod-pages/total-tiger.html a while back. It doesn't look like you can buy it anymore (at least not on this site, maybe others, I don't feel like looking), but you could do the ab rolling exercise as well as a bunch of others.

None of the Nor Cal people have seen my six pack, but if any wander into this thread, they can attest to my tumors

Re: Anyone got an 8 pack?

Dude, don't those ab rollers mess up your back? I think it was some kind of medical issue that was mentioned at one poiint. I know it fuq mine up a little bit, but then again, i probably just have back problems. And yeah for me, the lower abs are the hardest to pop out, I have no idea how to make them visible.

Re: Anyone got an 8 pack?

I've never had issues with my back, although it does put a lot of stress on it and I can kinda see it happening if you aren't careful. The lower abs are always the hardest to work, and I think even the ab wheel focuses more on the upper and middle section. To work the lower abs, the best way I know of is to lie down on your back, completely stretched out, but keep your feet together, with your hands at your sides/hips. Then lift your legs into the air, maybe 60 degrees or so to the floor, then go down and repeat. Make sure you're using your stomach to lift your legs, and not some other muscle. Another variation would be to suspend yourself in air and raise your legs.... forget it, I finally found a picture.





Do that, either from a machine like that, or dangling from a pull-up bar. What he's doing up there is extremely hard, and it'll tear your lower abs apart. Don't overdo it An easier way would be to bend your knees when your legs come up, so your lower legs are dangling in the rasied position.

I used to weigh 128 pounds when I was running 5-10 miles a day. I was the same height I am now, but about 20 pounds lighter. THAT was skinny, right now I'd say that I'm lean

Re: Anyone got an 8 pack?

kspec with a non-ricey thread, congrats! relax k, i'm kidding...in fact this is a great thread. i'd be very interested to know what exercises people do for their abs too.

i have a 6 pack when i work out like crazy. i'm 40 years old so it's not as easy to stay in shape like it was when i was 23. i have a hot 24 yo fiance so i can't let myself go...i still work out 4 times a week, doing mostly push-ups and sit-ups but i'd love to know what works for everybody

Re: Anyone got an 8 pack?

It's muc easier to have an 8-pack when your skinny. Maybe that's why you don't need to exercise much.
