I went from 165 to 169 over the summer.
Thanks for the advice. I'll google all of that to get it going.
Any ideas on how long it should take to get a pack? Right now it's not bad, let's see if I can describe this... I have the whole entire outline going but the only ones that have definition are the second pair from the top. And even those are faint.
I'm 5'7" if that means anything. 15 years old
You're not horribly out of shape at 169, personally i would try to get to 160, but if you're big boned and have a natural tendency to be bigger due to your genes, then you're probably fine.
It took me no time to get a six pack, but then I started out really skinny (was 135 and 5'8" as sophomore back when i started wrestling, ended at 165 and 6'1") It actually isn't hard to get a six pack, it's harder to maintain it. Basically if you work at getting one, and get one, just keep the work going. As with all types of work outs, it will not happen after the first day, nor the first week, in fact, it could take a month before you get a solid set of good looking abs, but the benefits of a strong set of abs is so nice. Ever since I stopped working out as regularly as I did when i was in high school athletics, i've begun having back problems, all due to my loss in core strength.
