Just out of general curiosity I wanted to find out people’s options on girls that have 6 packs. When I say 6 pack I don’t mean over the top body builder women who are on steroids. I mean a nice just defined 6 pack. The reason I’m asking is because I have just started to show my own 6 pack (just the beginnings of) and me and my female friends where having a massive argument over it.
I think women who are fit look hot! Again I don’t mean women that go over the top body builder types but women that you can tell just by looking at them that they are healthy, fit and go to the gym to keep in shape. Since I have started to get fit I have noticed I appreciate the hard work people put into looking good. I never use to and I use to think fit women where “skinny b*****s” basically because I was jealous, yes I’ll admit it! Lol
My female friends argue that it looks unnatural and ugly to which I of course disagree. So I wanted to find out other male/female perspectives on this topic.
I think your friends are right, may be they are telling you that you have a distorted view of your body.
The men on here will say baby you are hot, yada yada so if your fishing for attention you will get what you want
When I look at your pictures I see a young woman who may be on the doorstep of a bigger problem
Talk to your offline friends, and listen to them
the key to it all is to be FIT and HEALTHY
I see to many young women at my gym there for hours and sipping a protien shake and are way underweight.
Interesting. Ok so I just want to get one thing straight because as some have already hinted at… and I know it’s going to come up at some stage (it always does). I do not starve myself or over exercise. I eat 3-5 healthy meals a day (lots of veggies, fruit, salad, lean meats, eggs and seafood). I go to the gym 3 times a week (weights) and on the other 3/4 days I go for a 3km run. @tuscanred – that wasn’t very nice. So you think I’ll have a "bigger problem" down the road if what you’re referring to is me being too skinny. I am working on building muscle not losing more weight. I just wanted to clear this little fact up before someone accuses me of being anorexic. Also I’m not looking for men so sucking up doesn’t work.
Mrs P has a six pack, but that is all due to her slim build, work and lifestyle. Mr P does not mind and has no preference either way, but would agree that it does look impressive and would love her just the same if she had otherwise. Nothing wrong with looking defined as long as it does not become an obsession and if it is a bonus from a healthy lifestyle choice then why not.
Everyone will have their own two cents worth and you will probably find that the people who are mostly against female body definition are people who feel threatened or are just plain judgemental.
Taby, you are looking good, enjoy it
...I took my weight training very seriously. I worked out at Paul Graham's gym at Brighton Le Sands. (Paul was a former Mr. Australia and, while living in the states as a flat mate and training partner to Arnold Schwarzenegger.) I had met Paul a couple of times but he left the running of his gyms to Les and Erika Geisen (Erika was the inaugural Ms. International). So I was surrounded by the culture.
I once met Cory Everson and Carla Dunlap, both former Ms. Olympias and both were appearing as exhibition guest stars at local bodybuilding competitions. Cory and Carla were pioneers in female bodybuilding from a time when the aim was to enhance the female form beore the steroid monsters took over. Carla had the most beautiful body I've ever seen. (I wrote a letter to the forum of 'Muscle and Fitness' magazine about how impressive she was. She remembered me and sent me a Christmas card.)
Rachel McLish, Lydia Cheng, Kike Elomaa were totally beautiful too (Google them). Trust me, if you hit the weights and eat right (no stupid fad diets or starving yourself) and stay well away from steroids, you can only improve your shape.
They look good...obviously not if you go over the top and are all bulging out like a steiod pumping body builder but nice defined ones on a female are good.
From your pics i can se of your abs they look really good...keep up the good work and do what makes you happy!
I just wanted to say well done!!! Thats a lot of hard work thats paid off. They arent easy to get. Personally i like a toned stomach on a lady mainly as i understand the dedication and discipline it takes to get one. And like you say, toned is good. Too defined, muscled up isnt my thing. As its been mentioned above, feminine abs are good and yes, its each to their own.
Well done you.
