Default 6 pack = weak body?

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/1...?dopt=Abstract (wfs)

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.

The weakest boy currently on my team squad has a 6 pack that he loves to show off and touch. He can barely do a few skin the cats and has a very short L-sit time. Our Muscle-man also has a 6 pack but then again he can do a front lever. A so-so L-sit time and L-hang but still FL, ridiculously long BL and straddle planche.

There's your midline stability.
