Wondering if anyone could offer any suggestions on this. A little about me first. Im 5'11" and a fairly lean 167 lbs. I'm an ectomorph, yet through T-Nation's great workouts and diet advice I am up from 117 lbs 18 months ago. I have "bulked" the entire time and my ultimate goal is a lean 200 lbs.
However there is a snag I've run into. I have a gut. I don't beleive it is fat as I cannot pinch more than 1/2 of an inch of skin between my fingers. Also if a flex my abs I have a six pack and my stomach becomes flat. When relaxed I look like a beer swilling slob.
I have done a little research and have seen this can possibly be caused by a weak transverse abdominis (sp?) and/or possibly tight hip flexors (although I'm ignorant of the biomechanics of the last possiblity).
I would love to hear anyones advice or opinions. Thanks.
