    Ran 3 miles
    walked another 3
    situps, curls, and pushups.

    That sounds like a lot of self-inflicted punishment to expect to lose five pounds of fat in one day. :wink:

    I admire your tenacity! Short-term goals can be very helpful. Now until Labor Day sounds like a sprint. It'll be interested to see how you wind up by then.

    I disagree that doing nothing but losing stomach fat gets you solid 6 pack abs. Mine are much more defined and bigger when I concentrate on exericising them.

    That's like saying to get defined biceps, lose all the weight in your arms. Yeah, they're there, but not very impressive.

    You're still missing the point. Nobody here is 'doing nothing' for the abs. Hell, ab exercises are all people do these days. They're obsessed with working abs.

    Most people already have distinct six-packs. They're just buried in fat.

    Sorry, Dream. "Do nothing" is exactly what you told him to do for his abs.

    OP asked how to get "rock solid abs"

    you said: "No exercise necessary. Just a sustained calorie deficit. How long that takes depends on how much abdominal fat you have to lose."

    After he explained he has a flat stomach, you said: "No problem. Flat abs are good. Apart from fitness models and bodybuilders, almost no one needs a six-pack. The difference between flat abs and a six-pack is usually a few pounds of fat."


    Then I went ahead and replied. Your answer is obvious. Of course you need to lose weight to see your abs. 1st graders know that. But the OP wants rock solid abs.

    The reason I mention everyone working their abs is because it isn't getting them rock-hard abs.

    I stand by my assertion that everyone has a six-pack. Adipose tissue is the reason you can't see it. It is a very old wives tale, this silly notion that you do do, say, crunches to bring the abs out. You seem to be into rocket science. That ain't it.

    Further, you have fallen prey to the corollary wives tale, the notion of 'toning' a muscle. Muscles are already comparatively firm. Guess what makes them feel soft ?

    Not to mention crunches are about the least bang for the buck you can get when trying to strengthen your abs. Plus abs are not exactly the biggest growers anyway. So its usually more likely a bodyfat issue than a case of abs being too small.

    I hardly do leg exercises. Two days ago decided to change that and went bat$%!+ crazy doing Bulgarian squats. Boy am I sore. Soaked my body in body pain bath salts but I'm still sore three days later.

    Yeah that'll do it. I work out legs all the time and still can get sore to the point that its hard to walk.

    People are using those these days simply because they're fat.
