I may never get back the abs I had when I was 26.

But my serratus anterior muscles are looking pretty good!...

1. I once got picked up because my serratus anteriors were bulging.

2. No chance of that happening with me.

At my age, regardless of my physical condition, it's not a good idea to walk around shirtless...

4. I was a soft kid growing up. No athletic ability of any kind, no matter how many

sports my father bullied me into going out for.

Then I joined the Army, and trained as a tank crewman. Four years of constant pushups, loading bulky rounds into the tank's gun, and the kind of heavy lifting required for keeping the tank maintained really developed my physique.

When I got out of the Army, I took up weight-lifting in order to avoid the instant-paunch look a lot of people develop after leaving the service. Within a year or so, I had developed a pretty good set of abs. But I was only able to maintain them for about a year and a half. It was awfully hard work! Plus, I met (and later married) a woman who didn't care what I looked like. I didn't exactly let myself go, but I let the abs go. Too damn much work.

5. "Never-ending pasta" dishes at Olive Garden...

have helped me seriously expand my serratus anteriors!

Even my cardiologist has noticed!

6. You still have those very same abs.

Just like I still have the same butt I had when I was 26.

The same, and even more.

11. I'm not sure I'd want to take pics unless they could include the abs I no longer have.

I'd want you and our fellow Loungers to get the full deal...

50 years ago at 18. Sure does look different though.
