i hate people who judge fitness by how lean your body is, and weather you have the cliched 6 pack. when in reality big arms matter so much more, i love going to the gym, and benching twice what the pretty boy 6 pack crowd benches.
What's the point in having big biceps if you're carrying too much body fat? I would rather have a healthy body fat level and small arms than big arms and excess fat. This is not about what you think looks best. This is about your health, which is much more important than appearance.
health is important but i dont htink a 6 pack is healthy, you have no body fat to have that. im just saying whats the use of working out if your just gonna stay the same strength like most of the guys who prefer lean > mass. being cut looks flashy, but any actual guy who benches for strength will make the 6 packers, look foolish in the gym.
I think ya gotta go with what the chicks dig. From what I've heard they find a lean body w a six pack such as a mark wahlberg or a brad pitt over some fat meathead, I actually think most people find that unattractive but its just an opinion, some people may like it. Also who told you a six pack was unhealthy? haha thats funny.
seriously having your abs showing cant be healthy. and as for what chicks dig, if they are a smart chick they will dig a real man, not some metrosexual like ryan secrest, and the backstreet boys. brad pitt isnt a wimp so i cant hate on him.

Are you serious?? Please tell me your joking. A six pack shows at (ballpark) 10% and that is hardly cut to ribbons. In fact if you have ever opened an article on exercise physiology you'd know that 10-12% is very healthy. I am also curious where you got the idea you can't be lean and strong???
tidus_007, I think you are rationalizing. I knew a girl who was dating a really muscular guy. She would go on and on about how buff he was, but when they went to the beach and she saw his stomach, she was totally turned off. She was expecting a six-pack because that's the ultimate sign of fitness and if you ask most women, they'll see the same thing. Most are not attracted to the muscleheads. They prefer Bruce Willis to Sylvester Stallone. Too many men derive their self-esteem from muscle size or strength. That's silly and something you would expect from people who don't have a high opinion of themselves. A secure man would take pride in being physically fit and achieving low body fat, not because it looks better, but because it's healthier.
