6 pack - Page 7

post #91 of 124
Work out your core like crazy using resisitance and weights. Eat a ton of food. Gain a ton of muscle mass.

Then cut.

Cutting basically involves strict dieting while still working out. It feels like starvation and it sucks.

But that's what it takes to get magazine-quality abs.

You're doing great Impulse. You've worked hard, so have a great time and enjoy that trip to the Bahamas - you deserve it!

i believe lance armstrong keeps his BF at 5% year round.

I remember this thread. But life goes on, with its changes and challenges. Last post here was in late June, 2006. That was many moons ago.
Share a follow-up, Impulse155. You accomplished a lot. Have you kept to it?

uh,
one thing abt body fat, how is it measured?
last yr i had a hormonal problem and my body fat percentage came in at negative 3%. how is tht possible? according to my doctor, its cos my body fat was too little to even register on the machine.
for the record, my BMR was 1.3% above max limit.

OK I dont even know where to start. First your body fat was not -3% and thats impossible. Whatever you used (probably some handheld device) is ridiculously inaccurate. I think the lowest possible bodyfat a man can achieve is something like 3%, and no offense but I doubt you are near this.

The most practical (pretty accurate) way to measure your bodyfat percentage is with a calipers. The most accurate way to measure bodyfat is the water displacement test, but it's expensive.. Do not use those electro-whatever handheld tests or scales because they are inaccurate and a waste of money.

However those devices can be a good way to show progress/change if used in a consistent manner for comparison; just the numbers will not be true.

the doc wired me up to some machine and shit.
will scan the results and post it or sth
at that time i was 50kg and 1.75m

Sorry, it's wrong.

And it does not matter how tall you are and how little you weigh. That just means you have no muscle. You could be 150cm and 90kg and have less bodyfat. Its actually easier to maintain a lower bodyfat percentage when you have lost of mass (muscle).

Again I need to make it clear that body mass index, or just weighing little has NOTHING to do with having low bf.

hope this helped.
