Default 6 pack = weak body?

Few studies have observed any performance enhancement in sporting activities despite observing improvements in core stability and core strength following a core training programme. A clearer understanding of the roles that specific muscles have during core stability and core strength exercises would enable more functional training programmes to be implemented, which may result in a more effective transfer of these skills to actual sporting activities.
Not really a weak body, but thought this was kind of funny. I stopped doing ab work awhile ago to focus more on power, guess it was the right step.

Guess those crunches really are just for vanity after all.
