Six Pack

In a recent study by the North American Association for the Study of Obesity, it was declared that waist circumference is more conclusive than either weight or body-mass index [BMI] as a measure of disease risk. Miami cardiologist Arthur Agatston, MD, author of the South Beach Diet supports this research by saying that: "Abdominal fat is different and more dangerous than fat elsewhere. Unlike fat directly under the skin, belly fat, which adheres to organs, is associated with increases in C-reactive protein [CRP] and other markers of inflammation that can lead to heart disease."

"work it out, carlo."

So guys, other than working your abs to flaunt in the beach every summer, there is a more scientific and healthful reason for doing it.

Say, your life depends on it.

Crunches do not burn fat effectively. It is much better do aerobic workouts(and eat properly) to burn them. Of course, to get a six pack you need to do crunches.
