    Thank you sir! I'll be sure to post my pimped out, abbed-out (yes! That's my word "ABBED") midsection as soon as I get mine tight and photo worthy! That was quality info. I'm checking out the web link now!

    2. Strength training. If you want that toned mid section look you have to put some muscle there. If you just want a nice flat stomach muscle will still help it look tight. You can begin with Strong Lifts, a hypertrophy routine or a strength program from bodybuilding.com (free!). One that includes compound lifts like deadlift, squat, bench press and pull ups will help. Work on increasing the amount of weight you use. When the weight gets heavier you engage your core more and it builds the muscle.

    I want to expand on this. It seems some people, especially young women with very little muscle, might even need to go on a bulk to get a "six-pack". They just don't have big enough muscles. They'd have to get dangerously lean for them to show. The better way would be to gain weight (including fat and muscle, but hopefully mostly muscle), then try again to lose the fat and reveal the new pretty muscles.

    This is true. If there is not enough volume in the muscles they won't show. Mine show at 20% because they have lots of volume. A great way in my opinion to add volume is heavy squats, deadlifts and front squats. I don't do crunches.

    Agreed. I don't do direct ab work either (I don't have a six-pack but I have "abs").
