    Just wondering if anyone has any tips for developing a strong core and abs.

    I have good size and muscle but I've never been able to get abs or a strong core. My stomach is flat but it's virtually without definition.

    Is it genetics, do I need to keep getting my body fat even lower or do I need to focus on building muscle down there to make it pop?

    Train your core for strenght and mobility. Not for looks

    Yeah. But thats just side effect from the main goal.

    Main goal being a strong core for kicks and clinching.

    The key is to have a girlfriend leave you for a better looking and more successful man. Then through hatred and selfloathing you discontinue eating. Training more jiu jitsu and more hating the entire world you end up looking like this.

    I hope my story inspires you to greatness.

    heavy one-arm kettlebell swings will shred your core. I never saw my upper abs in my life until i started these. plus it's a manly exercise .

    i like me some swings. Although i feel it in my core it doesn't really give me an ab burn per se.

    Ab wheel works for me. Plus hundreds of situps at training.
    But mostly diet. Bigger abs are more visable at higher fat percentages
    I bulk/cut cycle to get better results
