    I have a question about Abs.. Maybe some of you fitness gurus can help me out here.

    I seriously need to flatten out my abs again. Since I've turned 21 I wanna say i have alittle beer belly :wtc: When I was in High school I had a nice 6 pack in my ab section.

    To flatten and build... what should I do first? Should I start working the muscle in that section doing crunches and so on? or should I lean out first then work on the crunches? Or do both at the same time?

    The reason I ask this. Is because I heard if you do the crunches and build your muscle behind the fat it actually makes you a bit fattier and I don't want that.

    Any advise would be greatly appreciated

    Swimming is the best if you're any good at it.

    No, swimming might be good for the cardio, but the actual motions stretches out your abdominal wall, "lengthening" your abs. They become very elongated and protrude less. Trust me Ive been swimming for the past 3 years and every year after season my six pack looks weird. Its not bad for you, but if you want a six pack that stands out, swimming isent the answer. :nono:
