This reminds me of a conversation I had a while back with some weak ****er who looks like an underwear model. He observed my 1 day a week abs routine (weighted situps, front bends, knee bends, and ab wheel) and made it a point to advise me thusly:
Weak ****er: Hey brah, you should try some Swiss ball ab work. It gives much better results; in fact that's how I got my 6 pack.
Me: No brah, you got your 6 pack from genetics and dietary discipline. Besides, I have no interest in a 6 pack I just want a bigger deadlift.
Weak ****er: Whatever brah, don't listen to someone who obviously
knows more about abs.
Me: Well, put your money where your mouth is, I challenge you to a deadlift contest. We can even use Wilkes ratio to determine the winner since you're small.
Weak ****er: Oh, I never deadlift. You can really **** up your back with those.
Me: Yeah, if your back and abs are weak you sure can **** things up on heavy deads. Good luck with your six pack faggott, Iíll be squatting tomorrow if youíre interested in doing a manís workout.
