Vacuum your stomach, not your lungs. You should be breathing out as you lift/contract/squeeze/whatever, and breathe in as you return to starting position.

oh so i guess vacuuming ur stomach really only has to do with u contracting ur stomach muscles in, as opposed to sucking in ur stomach...

Vaccum sealing something involves removing the air.
You are NOT using your mouth as a nozzle and "hoovering" air into your stomach. That would be like treating your stomach as a bag to be filled.
Instead you are expelling air and creating what is known as a vaccum within your stomach...a space empty of matter...or in this case air.

That form of breathing is for all muscle group exercises, not just abs.
