The Last Furlong

Comments on the race of life.

6 pack abs

Leave a comment

In the old days, men were men without 6 pack abs. Tarzan, James Bond, Spartacus looked like strong men – without 6 packs and perhaps a bit of flab.

But nowadays, heroes of the screen, are the new male Barbie Dolls. They must be honed, toned, flab-less, unreal. I wonder if young men feel ashamed of their natural bodies because they don’t look like the new heroes?

But 6 pack abs are now essential. In the making of the new series we have here recently started on the BBC, all theĀ  extras on the movie set were fitted with plastic abs.

Sad times.

I'm someone also pounding the Path, just like you.. I'm retired, going into Old Age and loving my life. I'm hoping to remain happy and well for as long as possible. Old Age is not SO bad - yet!

Please do comment! That's part of the fun...
