I also forgot to mention this: You don’t have to actually do sit ups or crunches to get rock hard defined abs, just activate your inner core in activities such bench press, leg press, seated row, lat pull down, to name a few.
Remember your abs are used to assist you to sit up when lying horizontally, when standing they dont play as much a role in keeping u erect as ur back muscles do, so people who say the abs are a slow twitch muscle fibre and should be worked with high reps dont no what their on about. Treat the abdominis like every other muscle lower reps, higher weight. BUT REMEMBER COUNTER BALANCE, WHAT YOU DO TO THE FRONT YOU MUST TO THE BACK TO PREVENT INJURY. [/quote]
Well, there is a difference between activating your “inner core” and the “6 pack” abdominals. The latter plays a pretty small role in stabilizing bigger movements relative to the TVA. The TVA won’t get you a 6 pack, you still need to be working the rectus.
And to the OP, I don’t think that the “push away” diet really needs to be something you necessarily need to worry about. The guys admits to being skinny to begin with, so it’s not like we’re dealing with an overweight man to begin with. You might do better getting stronger and gaining more muscle all over. Don’t fall into the bullshit trap of just trying to get the 6 pack. It will leave you skinny and weak.
