No its not genetics at all. almost a year ago i was all ribs and bone. I started reading and gaining weight and as i gained weight i was working out hard and heavy at the same time. The weight i was gaining was covering the muscles my training routine was building.

The best exercises for abs are not the ab exercises necessarily. The bench press and deadlift caught my abs on fire. The seem to work best. When i start my bulk again i may lose the abs but i dont care i want more weight. I would rather be big and bulky and not worry about abs. Get big,get strong, the abs will come.

any other questions just ask.

This really makes me want to see how you bench press

And while the fact is that anyone can get a ripped six pack with hard work and diet. Genetics actually do play a pretty large roll in it, some people are just blessed with body that puts fat everyware except their abs.




keep up the good work coop

Good job on the weight gain to tis point.

When you say benching improved your abs, are you referring to it as a direct effect? Or do you mean an effect of getting stronger, and therefore being able to work harder at other moves? I can see deadlifting, and squatting as a direct effect. Benching, only in the sense of increasing upper body strength in general.

Does that make sense?

As a baseball player, how much do you and your team talk about Rotator cuff injuries, and what moves do you do to strengthen, and condition this area?

It made my abs stronger as you said benching is not a direct effect like the deadlift is. Makes alot of sense bro. I like your reply you have alot of knowledge about this kind of stuff. And we talk about it alot. We try and strength the muscles around the cartiledge in the shoulder to make the rotator tighter and harder to injure. Hope this makes sense
