I understand the obsession with being healthy...but some people are literally obsessed with that bodypart. Some people literally bring up "my abs" whenever they eat, drink, wear something, etc, to the point of annoyance.
well, I obsess with my abs because abs mean you have a strong core. And with a strong core comes a strong runner. And I need to be a strong runner to stay in college since I'm on scholarship. So that's why I have to obsess.
Guys are more obsessed with their abs, I don't know why.
Our abs are more sensitive to temporary changes due to what we eat than other body part. It's not like my butt is going to suddenly bulge because I ate something that gave me gas.
However, I mostly hear people talk about their stomach not their abs and I don't even hear people talk about their stomach that much. They may think about it but I haven't heard many public comments.
I don't know... for a guy I guess because its something thought to be really attractive by majority of people like many men like bigger breasts. I don't know about women... I personally don't ever want those bulky muscle abs lol just a flat stomach.
Strength comes from the core, its the centre for balance and for most sports its an assest to have. It shouldn't be something most people should obsess about but it is an advantage to have from simply a physical stand point
abs are cosmetic muscles. They are important, but having a six pack isn't important if you can't even lift 200 lbs.
Truth is, most guys with a 6 pack, weigh like 140 lbs, so they didn't even have to work to get it. The only thing big abs well help you do is keep you back strong while squating with heavy weight, so they aren't something to concentrate too much on
