Ab Q!

I've always been wondering what flexing your abs while you walk does for them? i know its not going to burn the fat haha. But for the abs, does it tone it? I also heard that other than gentics, the way you run or howu have ran(favoured one leg) can also "mis-shape" your abs. I just wanted to find out

    ...same thing it would do for any other muscle I believe..

    What "tones" the midsection is low bodyfat..higher levels of development will have them show through easilier so it will appear "toned" faster...bigger too.

    If you're flexing them then you might be stimulating the transversus abdominus which is the "inner slab" basically...that can tighten things up..but you don't have to do that all day, you can work it properly with its own list of exercises.

    The shape of your abs is because of genetics, you can't change their shape by favouring one leg while running.

    It will do just as much as those electrial stimulation gizmos you strap to your stomach: which is pretty much nothing. However it might burn like 50 calories if you do it long enough.
