There's really no such thing as perfect abs because when trained correctly, and if your body fat is low enough, then trust me - they will look impressive.
Very few people have what I would call 'textbook' abs, because the abdominal muscles are actually one flat hunk of muscle tissue, and the thing that gives people this 6-pack' look is this elastic-type tissue that runs across the muscle.
So, this elastic-type tissue stays pretty much the same size as long as your abs don't get too big. The bigger your abdominals get, the deeper the grooves - but if your abs start to get too big, then this elastic-like tissue will expand. So, it's important to keep in mind the intensity of your ab workouts.
Now about those 'textbook' abs: the only people that have those are the people whose elastic-like tissue isn't crooked.

So, it's just the beginning of spring. I don't know about all of you, but I've just started the cutting up phase, and I'm already impressed with how much fat I've lost in just a short period of time.
The cutting up diet is similar to the bulking up diet. When cutting up, you eat 5-6 small meals a day, and with the bulk up diet you eat 5-6 medium sized meals a day.
The 'secret' to cutting up is
cardio. The more you do, the more fat you'll burn, but don't get me wrong - you still gotta do your weight training.

In my weekly routine, I try to do some cardio everyday. On circuit training days, I try to do at least 15 minutes of cardio right afterward. Here's a quick look at my routine:
- Monday: Martial Arts
- Tuesday: Circuit Training
- Wednesday: Circuit Training
- Thursday: Martial Arts
- Friday: Circuit Training
- Saturday: Martial Arts
- Sunday: Circuit Training
Martial arts is that kick-a$$ cardio workout I was talking about earlier. Also, martial arts teach discipline, self respect, and respect for others.
It's not at all about blood and broken bones. I think everyone should try a few classes in the style of their choice, I guarantee you'll get a great workout!
