    Ab definition


    I know this is a reoccurring topic with alot of people but I seem to be struggling with this. I just finished a ph and yet my abs are not that defined and I seem to still carry a higher body fat % compared to wat I thought I would be. My cardio is struggling a little bit because I have a groin injury but I have been trying to get massages and take care of it to make sure that I continue doing cardio. I'm striving for good definition and I want to be around 6-8% body fat. Idk wat I'm doing wrong is there a specific strategy or do I just need to do more cardio? Or is it diet?

    You've left too many variables unanswered to get a proper response.
    What does your diet look like?
    What is your training program?
    What are your current stats?
    Peace

    If your diet is not strict, you're never going to see your abs.

    If your at 10 % don't worry about ABS. Build muscle. You may not have the "foundation " to see your ABS. I say go on a clean surplus for 3 to 4 months. Then cut if need be.
    You may be a skinny **** to begin with and have to get down to 9 or8 % to see them but thats rare. My suggestion is make some gains

    A few thoughts that have yet to be mentioned. . . .

    1. Get a job or buy your own food if you want results.
    2. Learn to spell like a big boy, and maybe you'll:
    a. Get a job
    b. Move out of your mommie's house.
    3. I wish there was a "dislike" button. Can we create one?
