    Okay...

    I have a flat stomach, but I have NO abs definition.

    How do you find them?

    Dieting? Cardio? Hydroxycut?

    Someone save me!

    You DEFINITELY have abs!!! Maybe a diet issue. You have to experiment. High protein, no refined sugar, no white flour or rice has helped me.

    I would stay away from products like hydroxycut.

    I actually hate cardio and avoid it like the Plague - although living in NYC is like a daily cardio workout anyway. I find weight training does a very nice job of burning fat,

    I have had abs since 6th grade. It was due to my early years being devoted to a high-cardio sport (soccer), but it's also partly genetic. My ex weighed 200 pounds, but the nutritionist told him with his body somatotype he would have to weigh 140 for abs to show.

    Actually, from looking at your abs, I would also say you're focusing on too much resistance in your ab routine. The key to abs is high rep, low weight, to exhaustion. Don't do any more than your own natural body resistance.

    Your body is just about perfect. That's probably the last thing you should be worrying about.

    +1. But, what kind of running is the trick...

    If you run on a flat incline, you're just burning calories. To burn fat, you have to run on an incline... I was up to 6 miles a day 10lbs ago. An expert stepped in and held the up-incline button until I was at 10% and clinging to the side rails.

    Got me past that plateau.


    But, 50% of abs is diet.

    Plug ScottHermanFitness, 6 pack abs into Youtube.

    It'll be another 20lbs before I see mine. But, my ass is firm, finally.


    Trainers I work with hate the ab crunch machines at the gym.

    Better exercises happen on the floor with the addition of cable crunches and hanging leg lifts.

    But, you have to focus on contracting with your stomach, not your front quads or other muscles or you're doing it wrong.

    A wide variety of ab exersises. For me sit ups n crunches can get boring so I hunt for new ab exersises until I find one that works for me n doesn't bore me. One I think can work for u is a specific pull-ups n legslifts exersise.

    Cause of your weight I recommend u do more reps. High bar is best for this...

    1. Make sure your back is straight and your stomach is flexed tight as possible, your feet pointing to the ground... or bend your knees at a 90 degree angle while knees pointing to the floor (for better effect, push knees back as if you're trying to kick your own ass, and keep legs at at 45 degree angle).

    2. Arms must be chest width apart and make sure elbow are as straight as possible.

    3. Pull up 10-20 times, at a slow to normal pace, keeping above mentioned in mind. Also remember to go all the way down (arms straight).

    4. On the last attempt (10th or 20th) keep. Pull back up and keep arms at a 90 degree angle and your entire body as straight as a board, then proceed with 10-20 leg lifts.

    5. When both pull ups and leg lifts are done thats one rep. Given the akward postion, I recommend anyone attempting this for the 1st time to do 10 of each kind, how many reps Is up to you, don't kill yourself it gets easier n better when done long haul. Results may vary. For more crazy ab exersises msg me

    QFT

    Dude, your torso is rockin. Don't worry about the washboard. Some guys get it some guys don't and I think the guys that are shredded in the middle are a little too concerned with their looks anyway.

    Coming along nicely. Slowly but surely, I'm peeling away years of eating crap food and bad posture. icon_wink.gificon_wink.gificon_wink.gif

    I got the skinny fat look through stupid starvation diets and smoking.

    Trying to rectify that through eating properly and some actual exercise........

    How often are you doing abs? In addition to eating clean, I also notice that if I don't do them at least twice every week they don't pop as much. I usually hit them 3x per week, doing a lot of decline bench crunches (hands on chest, bringing elbows up to the opposite knee - 4x25), planks (3x1:00 min) and leg lifts (3-4x15). I think the key for me is doing them often and regularly. Hope that helps. icon_biggrin.gif
