Really? I mean he's pretty lean but he has some muscle on him. Most people would consider his body type athletic.

What do I know though. I'm 5'10 and 175 lol.

He disappears when wearing a shirt. I'd guess 14" arms, and sure, you can call his physique athletic, but you can also say long distance runners, tennis players, and soccer players have athletic physiques.

I call them skinny

Huh, that small huh? What do you think his height/weight is? He's pretty lean all over, but his physique is more of someone that lifts vs someone that plays sports etc.

I'd say his physique is quite typical for someone who's been lifting for many years and is in good shape (that is, lean), but is not interested in lifting the most amount of weight.

For most people apart from the lucky ones, if you want good abs you won't look like you lift much in regular tshirts.

There are very few people who can weigh more than 85kg and have visible abs

Yeah that dude is a twig… does he even lift? Skinny fuck.

@Reggs here is a link to a program developed at Stanford called Legendary Abs. I can't vouch for the science and all the anatomical info, but when I first started to try to improve my midsection I used a lot of this program (w/ my own supplements and variations). End result was that it worked.

I know it doesn't have the entertainment value of Mr. Jeff on youtube, but you might find it helpful.

Waiting for flood of comments that these are the worst ab exercises one can possibly do … and they will give you cancer. happy.gif

+1. For natural, drug-free lifters of average (or below) height, you're pretty much spot-on.

Lol. Mmk. That Athlean-X guy is like 7-8% bf year-round. I'd bet good money that anyone in this thread who is 100% natural would be much smaller and weaker at the same bf. And I can't help but laugh at the 14" arm comment. Flexed, I bet the guy has at least 16" arms.

I'm subscribed to the Athlean-X YouTube channel, but I probably only watch about 1 out of every 10 vids. Still, the guy is extremely knowledgeable, educated, and passionate. And he actually works with professional athletes, including MLB teams. But I'm sure some internet powerlifters will still dismiss him automatically because not Rippetoe, or sub 200 lbs, or something. And that's fine; it's to be expected. Throughout high school and college, I, too, was consumed with the primitive notion that "bigger=better." Then I finally wised-up and realized that being smaller (i.e. leaner) was healthier, more attractive, made me look better in clothes, fit into more clothes, women like it better, I feel better, etc. So give me the "skinny" Athlean-X physique any day of the week over a "big" powerlifter physique, without question. And if you're smart and consistent with your training, you can remain virtually as strong at a lighter, leaner bodyweight. It just takes some dedication and motivation. And I don't know about you guys, but I'd rather be small, lean, and stronger than I look than some big fat f*ck who may not actually be that strong pound for pound.

I just hate his video style. He embodies "Gym trainers HATE HIM"
post #56216 of 57262

So I watched the video on his front page and he literally talks for 7 minutes straight about how there are no shortcuts to getting a 6 pack. Like that's the only thing he talks about and repeats without going into detail on anything relevant. A fucking 7 minute video on how you can't get a 6 pack from "sleeping pills or ancient secrets." ???????

post #56217 of 57262
Yeah, a lot of his content is fluff, or at least I don't find it very useful. And I would certainly never buy one of the programs or systems or whatever that they sell. But the guy does seem much more knowledgeable than the typical "gym trainer." I donno, I guess I'm indifferent to him. There's much worse in terms of YouTube fitness channels.

This describes me and my build looks like his. I've been told that I'm skinny even though I have quite a bit of muscle.

He's tiny. Theres a photo of him next to Bill Clinton.

Yes, he's lean, probably around 8-9% bf. He is tiny regardless. If you need to be under 10% to have "good abs" your genetics either screwed you or you have very little muscle. My perspective is of course skewed from my past in sports at the collegiate level. 6' 185-195 11-13% bf is what I consider average amongst my peers

And always, people as short as he will always appear small
