    Okay, so, i'm a slim guy. I would like to get some 6-pack-abs. I'm just wondering if anyone had any specific exercises that can help me get those riped abs.

    Sadly, it's completely luck of the draw. If you didn't pop from the womb with a 6 pack, you'll never have one and it's silly to try.

    Hmm, I thought the McGay 2.0 came with a positive feature not included in the first model.

    Singlefuck - I think if you do a search in the forms for "abs" you'll find a buttload of info on great ab exercise. Additionally, RJ itself has all kinds of articles here, some of them on abs.

    That "defined"look comes from stripping away fat to reveal muscular structure...so really, you need to combine a) muscle mass and b) very low bodyfat to achieve that look. Unfortunately, a) and b) are in direct conflict with each other (though you've got the advantage of a youthful metabolism working for you -- you're in a great place to make significant changes to your body in a short period of time if you want to...). If you are already slim, it's going to help if your body fat is also low (which is not always the case...if you go to a local gym and express an interest in joining or in personal training sessions, they will probably be willing to offer you a body fat analysis for free).If your bodyfat is low (low teens or lower) I would work on building muscle. If your body fat is high, I would combine some intense cardio with a healthy diet and resistance training...

    Well McGay 2.1, just make sure there's no malfunction with the wit and sarcasm operating systems.

    I would go with what starboard says. You have to break through the fat to get to the muscle. Some people are genetically blessed more than others and so some people may have to work harder. You have to want it bad enough to achieve it.

    Crunches, crunches, and crunches!!!

    Good luck

    It's a combination of three things. Clean up your diet, which is probably the hardest for most people to do. You can find plenty of info at sites like bodybuilding.com. on this. Next strip away the body fat with cardio. 45 min. minimum, and do interval sprints at a variety of incline settings. Last do crunches. And above all don't get discouraged, this takes time. It took me 8 months. In the end it's all worth it. Guys check me out at the gym all the time, and many have given me compliments.
    Go 4 it

    That McGay guys is a asshat who does not know what he is talking about everything he said is wrong that is like saying it is genetics that give you biceps everyone has abs just covered up by fa and like every muscle you can make them bigger
