Taking care of your body is no different from owning a dog: Feed it, water it and make sure it gets plenty of exercise. But you don’t need to work, well, like a dog to live a healthy, long life. All you need to do is clue in to the benefits of exercise.
The muscles in your midsection are more unified than you may think. The six-pack isn’t six or eight separate muscles; it’s one band of muscle that is divided by tendons that make it look like a multimuscle washboard.
