Just like the claims for getting 'six-pack abs' requires losing the fat over the stomach so that the muscles can be seen. One can do sit-ups and crunches 'til the cows come home, but if there is a layer of fat on top of the muscles, we are not going to look like the models in the adverts! I've always had strong stomach muscles, but they couldn't be seen... until now. I've still got a ways to go yet too. But I do have to admit to feeling a lot better.
I also have rock hard abs under a soft doona of fatty skin. I can feel them now. When the fat is gone I am going to look just like those after ads in the useless machine ads.
