    Where do abs start

    I can only really see my abs below my rib cage. I've look at pictures and diagrams and it seems that they should be right under my pectoral muscles.

    Any help would be appreciated

        They will start just below your rib cage (being the ones that tend to show up first) and will continue down from there. The leaner you get the more the whole thing will show. The first set of muscles to show will be below the ribs.

          They start at the origin (pelvis), see the picture, and end on at the insertion (chest), see the picture. The designations origin (beginning) and insertion (end) come from how the muscle affects movement. The designations can change, but this is the most common designation.

            MicahN ... welcome to The Hive, the social side of DareBee.
            dynamomelano ... is coming from an entirely different place from where you are. He has acquired a body of knowledge that insists on doing things a specific way.
            No particular reason, mainly because it makes simplified conversation easier for all involved. And habit.
            I doubt he realized you are younger than he is and not so stifled in your responses.
            Me? My education differs from his. I understood your question, as asked, and I understood his answer, as provided. But ... I'm really o l d !

              DaithiMeyer, I decided to show the letter of the law because MicahN seemed to already know the spirit of the law.
              and I'm a female

                dynamomelano ... oops! My mistake.
                The picture - a firearms target - suggests male, as does the chosen class. Dumb-@$$ stunt for me to ignore the symbol provided and go with a couple of 'suggestions'.
                Especially here, where half the women can kick my butt! And where one of those suggestions is only 55%/45% male - Vikings can be anything they SAY they are.
                My point, though, was that 14-year-olds are not always familiar with irrational "laws". Or even rational ones.
                And now I've looked up "Meguk": "Why do Koreans call USA "Miguk"? It is actually from Chinese." The Japanese call us "Rice Country"!

                  No idea! But Korean has Chinese elements as well as from other places. It is a very young language formed by one of their kings.

                    dynamomelano ... my quote, there, was from the Wiki text. And, the reason the Japanese call us 'Rice Country' has to do with a time when the US supplied much of the rice they ate! No idea when that was, that is what I was told while learning enough Japanese to say 'please' and 'thank you' while stationed there around 1970.
