    i think the general consensus here will be to worry first about building the rest of your body. worry about abs later. unless your goal is to be myspace ripped? if thats the case, i cant help you.

    Don't be that douchebag. Work the rest of your body, not just abs. Abs don't matter if you ever get into a fight, trust me. Get big arms, a big chest, a wide back, big shoulders, and massive legs.

    Abs are actually extremely important for fighting and almost all physical activities, not only for defense but also for offensive techniques.
    Also, this is completely irrelevant because OP never said anything about fighting, I dont know where you got that from. If I missed something and this post is related to fighting, having him build massive extremities may even be detrimental to his performance.



    To obtain more visible abdominals, lose body fat and gain muscle mass. If you are already at a very low percentage like you say, they are not showing enough because you have not developed them enough. Tiny flat abs are meaningless, unless youre just trying to show off how skinny you are.

    I seriously laughed when I read his post. First off, when did fighting come into the discussion? Big muscles don't help you fight big dog! Second, your core is like the most important thing to work on for fighting...have you ever trained in a combat sport?!

    Hey, OP- Abs are a muscle group, just like your legs or chest. Work them the same way you would work the rest of your body, dedicate a day a week to abs if you work the kind of split, and keep the bodyfat low. The more muscle you have, the more there is to show. Don't be that skinny kid with "abs" that everyone makes fun of.

    Because if you actually know how to fight then you would know that you use your core to throw some powerful punches.

    Like any muscle if you want it to be prominent when not flexing you need more size, but you would need super low bf to actually see the tendon separation between abs not tensing. As the guys above have said dont worry about that because its gonna take ages just focus on everything else and abs will fall into place

    As he stated, to have visible abs without flexing ( which is a very hard thing to do) you must BUILD muscle overall in your body and then reduce your bodyfat to show muscle definition
