Thread: Quad Belly help

    Scott, you can have very little fat but enough to cover your abs
    I have a friend that is a C-5 C6 and hit a skinny as hell. When he lifts his ass off the seat you can see his abs clearly.
    I know a little bit about exercise / human body because I was a personal trainer before my injury - In order to see your abs you have to have very low body fat.

    Quad belly and being fat are different things. We're not trying to get 6 packs. Atrophied abdominal muscles allows the stomach to protrude. Fat just adds to problem.

    Crunches or simulated crunches and estim have helped me not have a huge quad belly but I think a 6 pack is out of the question for most of us.

    I've began using my ems device but I'm not sure that the settings are correct. I've watched videos on youtube and my muscles don't seem to be reacting quite like others. I realize that my abdominal muscles are atrophied but I think that I should get more response form my machine. Does anyone know what the settings should be set on for abdominal stimming?
