Abs: What the hell??
I am a relatively skinny guy. I am 6' 170 and i have well defined arms. When i flex i can see all those striations in my shoulders and veins in my biceps etc etc. But my abs are not showing.When i flex i can see the top two but not much more. I try to grab extra fat on y stomach buy cant. So whats goin on...do i have underdevleoped abs or still more fat to lose in order to have a nice perfect six pack.

try doing heavy ab exercises like cable crunches. they should help make them pop out a little more. i had the same problem but its gotten better since i started heavy cable crunches. many people have the same problem it seems.

^^^ I agree. It's like doing push ups...how big will your arms get doing push ups? You need to do heavier weighted exercises to reach the type of hypertrophy you're looking for.
Cable crunches are great. Do you do squats and deadlifts? Those are normally enough to build up good abs.

well genetics started you with no abs but you can still build them up... your issue obviously isnt too much fat covering them just a lack of muscle period. Heavy and moderate stomach exercises are needed for you to build them up then they will begin to stand off your belly a lil more.

thank you all for the advice...I sure hope genetics doesn't determine everything or else ill lose hope. Assuming they don't, other than cable crunches, what other heavy abs exercises are there out there to gain the results you say I need.
