    impossible to get a six pack...

    i'm fat, but i was WAYYY fatter before... Is it true that it's impossible for fat people to lose all the fat and get a good looking six pack? my friend was saying that they get loose skin which doesn't let them get a six pack... well i have i think stretch marks on the side of my stomach and i don't think i'll be able to get a six pack... i put the pictures in my gallery... can someone tell me if that's true or should i keep on trying...?

    I have uploaded the pictures in my gallery of the stretch marks...

    Well it's hard to say. If you were like REALLY fat then I would say it might be hard to get a six-pack without surgery. But if not then it's possible. Don't sweat it though, six packs arn't everything. I would much rather have a big chest than my six pack.

    As for how long.... however long it takes to get you down to about 6-10% bodyfat.
    I don't train hard, eat right, and do the things I do for others. I do it for myself.



    ....did I mention the ladies too???

    I think anyone can get a six pack if they use the correct training methods. It's a two step process - you have to work the abs so they become developed, then you have to cut body fat in order to display them.

    Do some ab exercises, then work on your diet. Everyone has abs, it's just that you can't see them on some people because they're hidden under a layer of fat. Saying that something is impossible is just giving yourself an excuse to be lazy. It's a cop out.

    I was close to 300 and I can get a six pack. 200lbs is nothing.
    I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain...

    I don't think they will go away but I wouldn't even worry about that. I have seen a lot of bodybuilders with stretchmarks

    Stretchmarks are kinda normal. I have them also, can make it look like it's because of muscles once you build up

    I have stretch marks to on my abdomen, but when I dropped the body fat I never got the look I wanted. The tight look. I had to much loose skin, but I plan on having some plastic surgery to take care of that in the next year after Nursing school.

    Keep trying for that six pack bro. Don't get discouraged even if you start seeing some extra skin keep at it. If you cut that body fat with diet and exercise and some extra sagging skin is hanging around there is always plastic surgery there is no shame in having it. A lot of people have plastic surgery. I remeber a guy on this board a while back sayin that he got which was before I became a meber of this board

    I might be completely wrong here bigsampson, but at your age I don't see any reason why you still have loose skin. What BF are you at and how much weight did yoiu lose?

    Yo Pump,

    If you watched what you ate and did cardio 6 days a week, you could have a 6 pack in 3 to 4 months. Look at the EAS website and look at the body transformations that have gone on there. These pics are real.

    I did the same thing but I did not have the weight problem. But I dropped from 17 to 8% body fat in 3 months while I was eating 3000 calories per day. Also got stronger than ever before in my life.

    You just have to control the food intake, that is the hardest part.
    Quitters never win, and winners never quit ! ! !

    Who says big guys can't do pull ups ?

    Wide grip, behind the neck:

    . 37 @ 182 lbs
    . 33 @ 198 lbs

    Cardio six times a day, enormous strength gains, and 9 percent of your body fat dropped - all in one program?
