Strange that I should be posting on this, since last fall I declared that I was pretty much giving up on getting six-packs.
Normally a post like this is just an ad for P90X or some sort of acai or other fat-burning product. But this is no such thing (because nobody will pay me to post things like that - or this for that matter).
But I've been bowling this winter, and bowling (for a right hander) really develops your right biceps, shoulder and chest and the left side of your abs. So much so, that if you look carefully, you can see a bit of a "three pack" developing on my left side. I'd take a picture, but I'm pretty much it's too nuanced for you to see it in a photo.
But even if it isn't a "three pack" my abs are definitely more developed on the left than the right. So I realized, if I could bowl left-handed, I could even out this muscular imbalance and have a pretty ripped body. From bowling!
So why don't we see a lot of ripped bodies at our bowling centers? I'm guessing that few bowlers go out and run 20-30 miles a week as well to burn off that excess fat that is hiding their abs. In fact, I think I may be the only one. So cardio is important.
I only bowl once a week (for three games) so this should be enough to develop your abs. Bowl three games right-handed and three games left-handed. It might get expensive, and your left-handed games will probably really stink, but you're abs will get ripped. Okay, maybe not ripped, but they will get toned.
I thought about working out a bowling-equivalent exercise that would do the same, but I've already quit strength work for the time being, and would rather just ride my bike.
