    For your abs to show you need to do 30-60minutes of cardio everyday and be in caloric deficit through the day. The Cardio should be done at a steady pace, your main focus should be on big compound exercises like the squat the bench press etc.

    Focus on eating complex carbs like vegetables brown rice and fruits. Even though these carbs take longer to digest dont consume any after 6pm even on cheat days.

    Check out my body space and my journal to see how i made my abs show in just 20days.

    The bolded above are misinformed and may just discourage you when you dont see abs from killing yourself with cardio. Just maintain a caloric deficit and read the stickies.

    burn more kals than you take in, lose the fat, get them abs
    Get a crew cut. Everybody knows a short haircut makes you look bigger. Really though, I suggest going all the way and shaving it off. Grow a goatee too. This will suffice during your hypertrophy-phasse till there's an 8 pack of hotdogs on the back of your neck.

    Just keep cutting ,eating clean and lifting and they will come, do you already have visible top abs ? Unless you are really tall or really built 216 lbs is fairly heavy to have abdominal muscles's
