if you have a 4 pack, it means the last row of abs are still covered by fat. get leaner. if you get below 10% bodyfat and still have a four pack, your abs are just shaped that way. some people have 8, some have 6 some have 4...that's just how... (more)

Robb Wolf says that you can't get as lean as you want to be doing Crossfit and can't get sweet abs. Is he right? Anybody doing Crossfit, eating paleo, and getting super lean and fit? What's your training like?

A long term healthy diet should help redistribute your body fat into healthy locations, yes. Exercise helps, too. Especially cardio. Humans are built for running.
