Google "stomach vacuums". The other part of the equation is just to get your body fat lower. The vacuums will help you keep from looking like Ronnie Coleman with "pregnant ripped abs" when he relaxes.

I've noticed that when my stomache is full I sort of have the pregnant looking abs, and i'm currently at 5% bodyfat (for wrestling season, i'm not normally this skinny) but after i take a laxative and dont eat any carbs for awhile the bloated look goes away.

Get a buddy. Get a bench press. Put enough weight on it to balance yourself. Do leg lifts with your buddy throwing your legs down every time you raise them. Three sets of thirty every day with the rest of your ab routine should do the trick

So in this article: http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/ms-fit5.htm
When they say 20 seconds and 3 sets, does that mean you suck it in and hold it for 3 seconds or suck it in and let it come out as many times as you can in a 20 second period x 3 sets?

Suck it in and hold for 20 seconds. Try to increase your time as your endurance improves and shoot for 60 seconds at a time.

stomach vacuums should bring your waist line quite a bit even when relaxed. There is plenty of articles surrounding the exercise, which barely anyone does anymore, many of them BBer's of the "golden age," Arnold being one of them. I was big into them a few years ago,.. and dont do any direct ab work right now as heavy deads and squats hit for me just fine now. And even now at a higher bf, and the heaviest i have ever been, I still have a good shoulder to waist ratio, so....... do em'.
