Gotta remember genetics play a HUGE roll on the look and shape of your abs.

Jeeeze, personally I figure most people find that disgusting. You have to remember, quite often I am told, on my quest to get bigger and shredded, that too much muscle doesn't look good. The general population fears the gym rat

Getting a nice, visible six pack is 90% fat loss and only 10% actual ab exercises. And even then, if you train like a beast on all your muscles, you're likely to be including your abs in your workouts anyway without even targeting them.

Other than the vacuum exercise, abs are predetermined by genetics. You have to work them out, and get your bodyfat down to somewhere under 10% before your abs start to show bro.

You can continue to perform leg raises, crunches, curl-ups, rope pulls, etc. and very little will help improve the actual muscle belly of the abdomen. Most of the common ab exercises you see people doing in the gym do very little in overloading the abs. Most are hipflexor dominant exercises, using the abs as a stabilizer.
Furthermore, deadlifts, bench and other multi-joint exercises will recruit the abs far greater than in a casual crunch. The more musculature involved, the higher the stimulus must be.
Simply: drop the fat to the single digits, and naturally your abs should peak. The shape is predetermined.

Do any of you guys have a distended midsection? What are you doing to correct it? I have one, and it is said that the vacuum exercise should fix it.

in one of his video's rickson gracie (if anyone follows mma) does stuff like that, but 50 times more and will make that guy look like an uncoordinated ab donkey in comparison. It's nuts...

Vacuums will help with a distended gut. Im doing them, dont know if i need to but i have noticed when i do weighted crunches my abs sink into my thoracic cavity more then push out.

where the hell did his organs go? seriously, wtf, WHERE!

I know the "general population" might say that doesn't look good, or the Cutlers and Colemans don't look good...but I think we can all agree that the general population is not what we train for! That's the beauty of the gym. "The iron doesn't lie to you!" We train for ourselves, and if we hit it for any other reason...well...our results will be limited.
(Sorry, one of those soap box moments...TRAIN HARD!!!!)

the thing with abs is, you can do all the ab work you want but without proper diet, it aint gonna happen

Yikes. I always have a problem with the lower abs sticking out too far... no its not fat... its hard... like the muscle has expanded too much. Will this vacuum routine help?
