    I've been focusing on interval training with a new program I started.

    To bring out a six-pack you have to do 2 things - increase the muscle definition in you abs and lose fat all over. You can't really spot where the fat loss is focused, but you can spot which muscles to define.

    I'd try working on losing a bit of fat by boosting metabolism and finding some excercies for defining the abs. If you do these two things, you should get results. I don't have much to lose - 10 lbs or so (not bad for a 35 year old) but even at my age I'm seeing more muscle definition.
    Getting good results with Truth About Abs so far.

    If you already have abbs but cant see them you may want to consider a cut for a couple of weeks.

    hanging leg lifts are good for burning fat off the lower abs

    you can't burn fat from a specific area using leg lifts, situps, squats...anything. spot reducing just doesn't happen.

    Get yourself down to single degit fat percentages and they'll show.

    It doesn't happen...you cannot pick ONE area to burn fat. How does your body just say ok I am going to burn fat here but thats it??? It doesn't happen. You are not spot burning fat in that area only by doing your hanging leg raises.

    Biggfly and Scar are right - exercises don't burn fat on the areas they target.

    Core work is a good idea for core stability, but as far as ab visibility goes its all about bodyfat % and this is controlled through diet management.
