    Hah, lol. No, even when I lived on macaroni and cheese this was true. My parents and teachers were stymied that I could climb trees easily and hurl large stones, but couldn't perform other simple tasks like crawling slowly, etc., without my muscles cramping and seizing. No matter what I eat.

    Sometimes when I'm doing push-ups, or especially planks, etc., I have to stop - not because I'm tired or in any way challenged, but because I can feel my thighs contracting beyond the point of no return into cramp territory. Even when the thighs are not seemingly the muscles being challenged, they will start to cramp if I try to rely on them for postural stability for more than a few moments.

    Hmmm forgive me if I'm a little skeptical on the few hours timeframe. If your doing em in sets of 10-15 your doing 75-100 sets.
    I do 400-500 push-ups daily in sets of 50 and wouldn't even try to do 1000 in 2 hours. Maybe it's just that I'm 55 and can't keep up with you young studs. I usually do 1 or 2, 1000 push-up days but it is usually in sets of 50 every half hour.

    Well, body fat is vanishing rapidly - from my arms, lol. I swear my abs look only marginally better at this point.

    Don't want to spoil the fun by saying so, but I find it a little crazy to spend so much time doing push-ups ... just saying, the day only has 24h But I am very impressed by the ability to do so many. I can hardly do 3 sets of 30 push-ups (with 5mn rest in-between) and I am not interested in doing more than that, takes too much time as it is.

    The abs are the toughest to get ripped and I don't know, you may have to completely change your diet to get there ... damned stubborn fat!

    Hey Frenchfry,
    The actual time doing the push-ups isn't that much. Each set takes about 90 seconds. So, the total for a day (10x90 sec), 15 min. That's spread throughout the day. I don't have to go anywhere, dress up in gym clothes, don't need any equipment. My total workout adds up to around 30 min/ day, 6 days a week.

    Yup,
    On men, stomach Is the very last place to lose fat. Women, it's thighs.

    I've been sub 10% and hung out with ALOT of sub 10% fellas through my 16 years of wrestling. Abs are not a forgone conclusion even in that group of people. I would say only 1/3 of those that reach significant leanness ( 10% or less) to see their "abs" actually have that washboard look so associated with it. Some just carry that last bit of fat right in that region genetically or maybe they just don't have rippling abs....

    Probably not genetics. Anabolic processes work best when equally opposed with catabolic processes. The more you tend in one direction the more the returns diminish.
