Is it supossed to be an exercise or is it just a pose?
How do you learn/train to do that?

Arnold had a section on this in his book "Arnold Schwarzengger's Boldybuilding Encyclopedia" Basically he said that he practiced it for the pose, he would get down on all fours and suck in his stomach as far as possible and hold it for about 10 seconds, then let it out and repeat. Hope this helps, for more detail you should check out the book it has been very helpful to me.

i practice vaccumes on abs day. I have been able to hit them sice i was a tot. Just suck your abdomen in and up. I think it may be a little bit like rolling your touunge, some cant do it others can.

I was told to do these ab vacuums because I am lean except in my abdomen... the idea was that sucking my stomach in for 60 seconds at a time several times a day every day would pull that annoying pot belly in over time.

That and when they used to use this in posing it helped give more of the thin waist massive chest/shoulder/back area illusion.
