You should only have to do abs twice a week at most, I'm not sure what the above poster is talking about. One of the big myths about abs is that quantity = quality. Read as much as you can about mastering your diet, and work hard in the gym and abs won't be an issue. Your real ab development is going to come from stabilization work on exercises like heavy squats.

If you want abs, you can crunch till the cow's come home or run until your legs fall off. Not necessary. Diet controls all. NUFF SAID

-when you increase blood flow to a muscle group during exercise, the high level of adrenal hormones in the blood stream act forcefully on the fat tissue surrounding the working muscle. This increase allows the proximity fat deposits to be broken down quickly and used as an energy source by the working muscle....
so youre wrong... but if your diet isnt in check, your beat

Yeah ask any real bodybuilder about eye popping abs, its high % on diet low % on exercise, it is that way for me anyways.

Today must be a day for threads to derail...
OP, I wouldn't guess that you're 20%, but it depends on what you weigh. If you're smaller, then it makes sense.
What I'm getting at is that you don't look like you have tons of fat to lose; and it shouldn't be too terribly difficult to make some positive changes.

What midwestbeast said. Your bodyfat is high because your lean mass is so low. If you add more mass your BF% will be lower because it is a percent of total body mass. Plus as a newbie you can build muscle and lose some fat. Lift heavy and hard, dont sacrifice form for weight and eat, eat, eat.
