What’s more elusive than Bigfoot and arguably more actively sought after? Money? Fame? True love? You’ve already read the title so you know where I’m going with this. Abs. Rectus Abdominis. We all have them. If only we could see them. Even after slimming down, the abs elude. We think that if we could just get that last five or ten pounds off, perhaps they’ll show up. So we exercise.
