Question about bodyfat %
I am just wondering.... what body fat percentage do you have to be to be able to just stand still without flexing and see your abs clearly? Is that like 7-8% of more around 9-10?

It depends on how much you've worked your abs. I can see mine not flexing at 10%.

I see an outline of my upper 2 ab sections at 16.5%. I have big abs, I think...

I would it depends on the person most certainly, but as a rule of thumb, overall i'd say around 6-8%.

I was down to 6.7% and only had the top 2 coming in really nice. It really depends on how much water your holding, how often you train your abs, and your genetics. But below 7 you will see abs, just hte deepness varies on many factors.

Yea right now my top 4 are coming in very nicely when I flex... and the bottom 2 are starting to show more and more when I flex, but I still have that little area of troublesome fat around the bottom abs. I am sure it will go with time. I am just trying to guess what % I am at now... thanks for the replies

Some actually can't get the bottom two rectus abdominos muscles to show through because they are too weak. They require certain exercises and contractions to bring them out to their fullest. Hope that makes some sense...

Any suggestions for exercises to strengthen them and make em come out from hiding haha.
Right now to train the bottoms abs I do the seatless chair and pull my legs up straight out and crunch up, and I also use a pull up bar and do leg lifts from a hang. Anything else I can try?

I hardly ever use the decline sit-up benches, but when i do occasionaly do them, my lower abs hurt all the way down to my blatter. Maybe i'm just a freak of nature.
