Ok, it may sound stupid but let me explain. I've been training for around 5 months and I've been making gains in all departments - my arms and shoulders are larger, my chest has become more defined, and my stomach, although when I tense my abs them I can feel that they are rock hard, still looks fat. I'm very pleased with my body's appearance is developing, but the 'belly' spoils it all.
I know having a '6-Pack' is all down to body fat %. I don't know what mine is - I know it's too high for developing a 6-pack, but this isn't what I want. Although I've become good at controlling my diet, I'm not focusing on getting my BF% down that low. What I want (for now) is getting my torso into a V-shape - wide shoulders, chest/back and a tapering waist.
Anyway, to get to my point, I've started to think that (because I don't have an insanely low BF%), by training my abs I am making my lower torso wider, which is not what I want for a V-shaped torso.
So is this reasoning correct? Should I turn down my ab training so that in contrast my chest will stick out more?
Or will it look rediculous? Should I try to get my BF% down so that my abs show through?
Thanks to all who can answer this
