      Reduce body fat before serious core training? Am I wasting my time trying to get "those ABS" w/ that gut?

      Yes and no. Always do "serious" core training, but you won't see significant changes until you lower your BF%.

      True or False?

      Precisely, though when I was real obese and my stomach bulged out...I had troubles doing good ROM for Crunches, Cable Crunches and Hanging Leg raises...If that is the case, dropping a few pounds might be ideal first.
      Still, you can be engaging the core by Doing Proper From Parallel (or below) squats, proper Deadlifts and OHP.

      I've been dropping some pretty good weight here in the last 10 days. (10lbs.) I'm currently at 193lbs @ 5' 8". Been lowering my calorie intake. 900-1000 daily total. Just wasn't too sure on blasting the core just yet......
      Thank you both!!!

      To add: I don't know my BF% I'll definitely inquire about that tomorrow at my training facility.....

      That's all you are eating a day? Not good.

      Did you just say you lost 10lbs in 10 days? Increase calories, no reason to keep them that low.

      True or False?

      Yes about 1,000 per day......
      Now I'm confused; I thought that's the reason for my weight loss.

      Thats dangerously low man. Ive been into it on multiple threads but at that much deficit, you could end up damaging your physiological systems which will have to try restore energy balance by catabolizing muscle.

      Ok, I'll increase my calorie intake. Just stay away from sugars & saturated fats....Is that right?
