Probably the subject that interests most people is how to get rid of the gut, the pooch, the shed, or whatever you want to call it and reveal the washboard midsection that you've dreamed about. So go ahead and post up what works for you, what is your routine, your diet, your genetics, or your research.

I found this article today which gave me the idea to start a thread.

Personally, I've never had the 6 pack look but my midsection is relatively flat. I know the abs are there, though. I just choose to eat whatever I want and exercise to keep fit and trim. However, I know that a routine of early morning runs, less sugar and junk food, less fat in my diet, and hardcore weight lifting would reveal 'something.'

I once participated in a "Sit-up Study" for my Fitness Teacher at community college.
I had to follow a strict regimen of sit ups, even if I could do more, I wasn&#39;t allowed to.
While I am not a guy, and never intend to have a six pack, I could feel how ripped those stomach muscles were after the 10 week study. I think I had a 6 pack under my extra layer of girl fat!! :D

We did
Crunches, legs bent.
Crunches, legs up.
alternate sides with legs bent
alternate sides with legs up
legs up straight(ish) in air, arms flat on floor at sides, lift with lower ab muscles your butt off the floor
I think there was one more, but I can&#39;t remember what it was.

three times a week, started at only 10 each I think, and then worked up each week for 10 weeks.

Give a buddy $10 for one? Seriously, I&#39;m not there. I need to start hitting the gym. Cycling should take care of the body fat (I&#39;m hoping), and a little lifting may help w/ the muscle tone. No idea if this will actually work, but I&#39;m hoping so.

hah its funny but i didnt do one thing... i just happen to have low body fat and they just sort of showed up one week after i lost a little mid-30&#39;s belly flab. Now im trying to increase the rest of muscle mass around my body... (I am a little thin)

Everyone really has them they are just hidden.... at least that is what i heard... you can tweak them... or totally blow them out but I think your first hunch was correct that "they are there"

I guess it just depends on a persons body and how hard it is to reveal them.

just my opinion

I&#39;ve just been doing a set of 100 situps every 2 or 3 days. Some of the other stuff posted is helpful cause I do these mostly in hotels, and some don&#39;t have gyms (or free gyms) so I&#39;d rather not need machines or weights. The stuff you can do without them, like situps, crunches, pushups and jumping jacks (though those probably don&#39;t do much but make you look like Richard Simmons) are what I prefer.

After about a month of this I got back the six-pack that I had when I was playing hockey in college. They build up fast, you just HAVE to be diciplined. And I hate working out.

After three training sessions, all of which included crunches, I can feel those muscles in there -- sure -- they have that squishy layer over them -- but those muscles are there! I think they remember me doing that sit up study all those years back, because I did 80 sit ups one night, and I&#39;m not aching the next day! GOOOOO MUSCLES!
