    How in the hell are abdominals stabilizers during chin-ups? Military Presses… definitely. But chin-ups???

    For an ‘expert’ this is a pretty weak statement.

    Robert Colling’s excellent review of human muscle fibre type distribution in Exercise Physiology (1997) reveals that the Rectus Abdominus is a phasic muscle with only 46.1% Type I fibres. This is the so-called “six-pack” muscle group that everyone is concerned about. However, it is true that the underlying Transversus Abdominus displays tonic characteristics due to its postural role.

    i think he is talking bullshit,
    abs are mainly slow twitch, yes they do have fast twitch muscle fibres too, but rather few compared to other muscles such as the triceps

  • Ronsauce1:

    Are the abs really fast twitch? I would’ve thought that since they are stabilizers, that they would be slow twitch (like the spinal erectors). Or is it maybe one of the underlying muscles that are slow twitch? Heh, I liked the skinny faces comment.
