I have heard people suggest keeping your abs flexed whenever you walk around or even all day. Anyone on here do that? Any thoughts?

2nd question: I guy at work swears by one of those waist wraps you wear all day that is supposed to tighten up the 6 pack. Do those work? I would disregard it as a gimmick, but this guy is usually very knowledgable.

When I used to be super chubby, I would always suck in my gut. Now that I've dropped 60 lbs and gained 20 lbs of muscle, I walk around half flexing my abs. I've done this for years now, and I don't even notice it. I guess you can say that I;m always prepared to be socked in the stomach haha

I keep my abs flexed pretty much constantly because if I let it "relax" I have a severely distended abdomen for whatever reason. Always been that way.

i dunno about actively flexing them, but when i started improving my posture and standing/sitting up straight, i used to feel it in my abs a bit (not anymore)

sounds like there's tiny men inside your stomach keeping it stretched unless you flex your abs.




or it's your tight hip flexors and lazy glutes.

Then how do you breathe into your stomach? You want to breathe into your abdomen, not your chest.

i NEVER relax my stomach. i have a terrible pot belly when it's relaxed. i half flex/suck in my stomach 100% of the time while standing/walking. i don't really notice it anymore :hs:

Are you talking about flexing your abs or sucking in your stomach? I can't imagine walking around all day flexing my abs.

I'm not torquing them I'm just keeping some tone in them

if I let it hang out people are like :ugh: are you preggers?!

It was like this before I probably grew my liver a few sizes from drinking too so it's not an enlarged liver

Time for a "post pictures of your distended stomach even though you're at like 10%" thread
