Are 6 pack abs overrated?
I used to have 6 pack abs till I was 24 years but those days it was not a craze like big muscular body. Even I was advised by well wishers to take ghee etc to make me look fuller. I was not a skinny guy those days. Used to weigh 77 kg with a 6 feet frame. It wasn't that I tried hard to get six packs. It happened naturally owing to my Martial Art training, College athletics and good metabolism. Then when I got employed, got married and moved on in life taking exercise in any form was not an option, food habit also changed and slowly I started to gain weight. I became 105 kg. Then thought of starting working out again. I am working out for last 2 months. Brought down my weight to 94. But, six packs is a far cry now. I am 43 now, metabolism has slowed down and cannot invest that much time and energy nowadays.
