      • Doing dead lifts without gloves ******* sucks. Especially if the bar is ****** up and spikey.

        • I cant grip a bar with gloves. Gloves suck imo. They only hinder my lifts.

          • How can I get a six pack? I've been working out seriously again since the start of the fall. Took a month off because my gym membership ran out and have been back to working out for over a month. I've been doing abs hard for about two weeks now. Obviously I don't expect to see results now, but what can I do to help get a six pack? And how long should I wait to expect to see results?

              Its all diet man.....ab exercises and all that help to build abs, but your not going to see them unless you get insanely lean. To see abs your probably going to have to be between 8-10 percent body fat. Getting there is going to take an insane diet and cardio program unless your just a naturally ripped guy.

                    adding weight and trying to get lean are tough to do at the same time. do tons of cardio, and stretching actually helps some with definition too if you do it right because over time it will lengthen your muscles.

                      I got some nice definition at about 11% bf. But you're right, getting there is hard as ****. I was doing cardio 5 times a week and only eating about 30 grams of carbs per day. I felt like **** all day and my strength really took a hit. It is really hard to find that balance, for me it seems to be that I'm either big with some fat or lean with not a lot of size.

                      • While I was on deployment out in the Gulf I worked out 5 days a week
                        After every workout I did a 20 min ab routine and did some cardio maybe once or twice a week .
                        After 6 months I had a nice six pack- but it was consistantly over 100 degrees on the ship though
                        So maybe steam rooms might be helpful- shed off all that water weight
                        Make sure you hydrate though!

                          Yep. I do specifically abs only once a week and I've got a 6 pack. You hit your abs up with the other lifts because abs are there to essentially stabilize your spine from what I understand.

                          Then again, I'm naturally a real lean guy. Gaining weight is my issue, not definition.

                            Depends on your company preference, taste, money availability and what you want (eg whey protein concentrate/blend vs whey protein isolate).

                            • Yeah, abs are huge for compound lifts. I rarely train abs directly.
