Sticky Thread Sticky: [new PTs] Wage, percentage and rental

Attached is a rental contract from Goodlife here in Australia . The rest we can't see as the interviewing manager (illegally) wouldn't let the potential "employee" take the rest with them to examine at home (or even worse, let a lawyer see it) and shredded it in front of them. You can see why...

Why are my abs building as a straight line of muscle?

I have solid abs but It seems like each row of abs are building as a straight line. Almost like it is one muscle spanning a straight line across my abs. Im sure doing more Russian twist may help but wondering if there is a reason for this or anyone particular workouts that could help.
