What is the best way to get a FLAT lean stomach with abs??
My problem is i'm a skinny kunt but have a pot belly (layer of fat over my mid rift).
How do fix this???
Do i need to start doing:
Incorporate Cardio (HIIT) ?
Eat more clean & healthy?
keep lifting heavy?
Incorporate more oblique / abs exercises?
Or is it a combination of all of the above, how do you cheeky kunts do it??

So by 90% diet do you mean to eat clean such as plenty of wholegrain foods / vegetables / protein and stay away obviously from junk foods. But then why do I see and hear about guys who are bulking and talk about eating cookies, ice cream, pancakes etc still have flat stomachs and when they flex you still see abs? Is it because they have built up their abdominals / obliques to such a big level through their weight lifting routines??
Thanks for replying everyone

You just need to start with the basics, lifting weights and eating enough calories and protein to get a decent base of muscle. I tried to cut down straight away with a keto diet and I ended up looking crap, with a years lifting behind me I look a lot better after a normal calorie controlled cut (using IF and IIFYM but don't worry about that).PC Master Race

A flat stomach with visible protruding abdominals is a combination of 2 factors:
1) Well developed abdominal muscles
2) Low bodyfat percentage so the muscles can be seen.
A lot of people think (2) is the best way to start out, but seriously, if you haven't trained abs, lowering your body fat will make you look like this:
Sure he has a "6-pack" (or 4-pack, whatever), but you really don't want to look like that.
The opposite is having (1) but too much fat covering them. An example is here:
(ViperGQ's transformation pics (hes a miscer))
This is someone who is very well trained with solid ab muscles, but just too high bodyfat to be able to see them.
So OP you need to make a decision - Do you want to build muscle or lose fat. Trying to do both at the same time is counter-productive, because you either need to eat too much (muscle gains) or too little (fat loss). It's not really viable to do both at the same time.
Some people can eat less than their body needs, lose fat and build a LITTLE bit of muscle at the same time, but that is usually only if they are beginners. If that sounds like you, you should probably start cutting a bit of weight while training hard at the same time, and you can reach your goal faster.
