    Question how to make your abs show more

    I have a 4 pack but barely shows I don't have lines to seperate them yet. I swim do all ab work outs and make them harder and just started playing water polo for my Jr year
    I'm 16 and I'm 6'3 I'm not fat, if anything I want to gain more weight my fat percentage is 4%I'm 150 and have skinny arms. What can I do to get the lines of separation and have my abs show more

    You sir are the only man in the world that is 4% bf and doesnt have abs.

    Anyways, your way off with your bf% estimate.

    Just keep training them. Heavy lifts like squats and deadlifts will surely add some mass to your abs.

    read all the stickies man. Abs are muscles, there are two ways to make them more visable, make them bigger/grow, or lose some more fat on top of them. If you lose fat, you'll look like a skinny starving kid, but technically yeah you'll have abs. If you bulk (you'll get a bit fatter) and build some muscle, then cut the fat later, you'll look better but this takes a lot more work and time, and is riskier cause you could in theory become fat. Good luck op
