    If you weigh 124lbs at 5 8" cutting is the last thing in the world you should be thinking of.

    Yo mate if I was you, I would go to gym and build some muscle before cutting. You will be under weighted if you cut from 124lbs.

    Running that much a week and only weighing 124 is going to put you pretty low on the totem pole in terms of strength. so I agree with him ^

    5'8 at 124 pounds? Cutting should be the least of your problem unless you want to enter anorexic mode, I suggest you bulk that's what I recommend

    To see your abs you would have to get to around 100 lbs, and abs at that weight would not be impressive, your arms and legs would be sticks. If you really want abs then be patient and wait. Bulk up and gain at least 40 lbs then cut to get abs. It would be a lot more impressive that way as the rest of your body would also look decent, and your abs would be thicker so pop out more.

    How do i make that much weight without getting fat? How long should it take if i do weights 3 times a week working chest/back/legs/arms on separate times? I would have to be at 164lbs which is very very heavy at my age and very few people are that heavy with muscle not fat,even getting up to 145 would be hard

    They're not pulling just because they have a 6 pack you child.
    In a couple years if you decide to ever properly lift, I guarantee you'll be back on this website and talk about how stupid you were when you were younger and were trying to cut at 124lbs LOL.

    I know you are young.
    I am 16 and was 5''7 at 121lbs only just 2 months ago.
    I have abs but I decided to bulk up in order to gain mass, at the moment I am at 136lbs. I will try reach 150lbs before cutting down again.

    I recommend you build up to at least 135lbs before cutting. If you start cutting now, you will be very underweight considering your height and until you decide to bulk you will not be able to lift heavy.

    Can I ask what age are you? I'm 15 and that weight at my age is not rate at all, there many guys on here even bigger than that.
    How to do it? Eat lots is the main thing. And constantly push your self harder than before in each workout. There are lots of existing threads on how to bulk, look for them or search google.
