A 40-year-old female asked:

Modify routine: Many people believe crunches and core strengthening alone flattens the abdomen. Those of course are necessary but cardio training is actually more important. Increase cardio. Also decrease beer intake as that tends to cause "harder" abdominal fat. Good luck.
A 33-year-old male asked:

Yes: There is a plethora of literature that supports that movement and exercise promote better health. There are many people that have sedentary jobs. That can be combated by getting up several times an hour to move around and with what you do in your time off. Mountain biking is excellent exercise so keep doing that. Good luck.

Annual checkup?: It certainly could be due to being out of shape so i don't want you do be alarmed. However you should see your primary care doctor for a checkup. This should be done before starting any new exercise routine especially once we get over 50.
