Six Pack ABSolutely Obsessed


Having a strong core will serve you both in & out of the gym, regardless of whether your abs are visible or not. ⁣⁣

⁣⁣

Subtle flex- I was extremely pleased by the comments when I shared this vid on ThiccTok. ;) I must be doing SOMETHING right.⁣⁣

⁣⁣

Having visible abs becomes unrealistic when you're striving to go below a relatively “normal” level of body fat. ⁣⁣

⁣⁣

Emphasis on 'VISIBLE abs,' because we all have abdominal muscles (you know this), it's just a matter of whether your body fat % is low enough to make them visible. (Which is mostly a result of nutrition, btw)⁣⁣

⁣⁣

It's easy to look at someone and defined abs and assume that they MUST be super strong and healthy. ⁣⁣

⁣⁣

But I know that YOU know how misleading and untrue that is. Health is more than appearance - but I know that YOU know that already.⁣⁣

⁣⁣

Fat is essential to survival & overall biological function (metabolism, bone health, reproduction and menstruation, energy stores, etc) — for more information head to PMID: 9376885⁣⁣

⁣⁣

Although we’ve been conditioned to attach morality to fat, ya NEED it to live. ⁣⁣

⁣⁣

Having very low levels of body fat CAN become unhealthy. Risks can range from dangerously low heart rates, declining testosterone levels, poor recovery, amenorrhea, osteoporosis, etc…⁣

⁣⁣

& much as you may covet, idolize & glorify the way it LOOKS, the truth is that they indicate nothing about speed, strength, stamina, flexibility, or overall health. All it means is that you have a lean enough midsection or stellar genetics that allow your musculature to show.⁣⁣

⁣⁣

Dedication to any goal requires some sort of sacrifice/tradeoff when it comes to your values. ⁣

⁣⁣

So if it turns out that a six-pack is out of reach for you (or if you're not interested in adopting the kind of restrictive diet it takes to achieve AND maintain one — guilty as charged!) there are plenty of good reasons to work ya core. ⁣⁣

⁣⁣

Bottom line: You can be healthy & strong as f*ck AND still have a layer of fat covering your #sixpackabs⁣⁣
