I used to do abdomen exercise daily. As a result I got some strong muscles under the skin. But still my stomach is protruded like something filled in it like air or water.

Please suggest some tips to reduce it.

    So, you're saying that you have a six-pack and yet, your stomach is big? Mar 30, 2014 at 16:39
  • yes...you are right Mar 31, 2014 at 2:11
  • I didn't even know that that's possible. Are you sure it's a six-pack? And it's visible? Mar 31, 2014 at 2:39

    I'm not certain I'm familiar with that concept; however, as long as it's not an infection, all you need to do is reduce your food portion and eat healthy. Over time, your stomach size will reduce because of the reduced portions. Mar 31, 2014 at 2:58

You may have problems with posture. Check if you dont have a case of hyperlordosis. People with hyperlordosis have their lower back muscles picnched too tightly, causing the pelvis to tilt forward, stretching the abdomen and making it stand out and look round, regardless of the amounts of fat on it.

Its hard to say if this is your case, especially without o photo, you should see a physical therapist.


There are two likely hypotheses.

  1. Visceral fat.
  2. Massive abdominal and lower back muscles.

If it's visceral fat, chances are you can't do anything about it without hitting underfat levels. If it's massive abdominal and lower back muscles, I would suggest you cherish these and consider seriously picking up powerlifting. It's possible to have your body decimate muscles, but it's such a waste.
