It may be the most harmless activity known to man, but it's also one of the biggest dangers to your health.
Even if you're the most active of athletes, you may still suffer from tight hip flexors due to the amount of time you spend each day planted to a chair.
If you have tight hip flexors from sitting you can look fat even if you're not!
It's called Bulging Belly Syndrome.
Wonder why your stomach still sticks out even though you're hammering the core exercises every day? It's a common myth that bulging belly is due to weak abdominal muscles.

That's why some people can look fat with a bulging stomach even if they're not fat.
