WOndering if any of you guys have heard of the "vaccum" . I was reading about it and its the part of a pose where i think you breath out all your air in your lungs and then try and touch your abs to your spine so it has this like crater in your stomach....i saw it when Frank Zane was doing it and man its pretty cool. Apparently now adays many of the big guys don't or can't do it anymore because they just too big or something. Juss wondering.

I love vacuums, I can do them better than anyone I know. I can get my stomach almost as far in as Zane and as far in as arnold could. I would do them and then flex my abs and they would pop out and look unbelievable! Vacuums are the ****!
i try t o prcite the vacum year round , do they still give you extra poits for it thoguh

Not really extra points, but if you can do it well, it impresses them since most people can't do them very well.

Str8, mind showing some pics of yourself in that pose? I saw Zane's move with that too, and hell it was cool.

Most pros can't vaccum since their bellies have distended. All due to IgF-1, either indirectly from growth hormone, or androgen-induced viceral hypertrophy. I can hit a vaccum, not now in the off-season. I start practicing the vac while dieting, then I can actually see my abs, and I don't have a layer of blubber keeping me from suckin' it in!
