No where in there did I say I didnt want bigger arms and chest Rockscar I just had a question about my abs.
Anyone focused on abs will fail at true bodybuilding so don’t worry about it for now. Abs are a product of bodyfat %. Get the size and then the abs can be uncovered pretty easily.
Is the reason that pro bodybuilders are always so lean because they have so much muscle mass and it burns a ton of calories just to maintain? Maybe I’ve just never seen pics of bodybuilders during off season bulking cycles, but whenever I see a pro, he has abs and veins popping out everywhere.
I’m 15 and just getting started too. I’d love some abs, but whatever… I’m just eating a lot of clean protein and veggies, training hard, and trying to make muscle grow.
I’m probably only a few % from a 6 pack since I can see abs if I pull down my skin a bit or lean back or something, but I have that annoying layer of fat covering the lower abs. It’s annoying too because it’s not even all fat, but looks like it is. It’s only a thing layer of fat, but looks like it bulges out more since it’s covering abs.
So yea… how are pros always so lean while eating enough to maintain and gain, I’m guessing, muscle?[/quote]
Wow. Most pros aren’t going to go on big photo shoots when they are carrying an extra 50lbs of body fat. That is why you haven’t seen many pics of them in their true off season unless they are guest posing.
That does NOT mean they are always walking around at 5% body fat.
