    Summer coming around again, and it's maybe my 8th try at this. Before you flame me, here are some things to consider.

    I'm 5'9" 130lbs.
    I run everyday for 30 mins.
    I do crunches/situps once every 2 days.

    I'm toned everywhere else, but I can't get any kind of definition on my abs. I literally don't have any fat to lose.

    Might be your genetics. Do some weighed ab work as well. What kind of bf% are you sitting at? If you dont know, find out.

    Something doesn't add up. Whats your bf% right now?

    Abs are made in the kitchen from what I've heard...everyone has abs you just have to lose the fat around them. Post pics and maybe someone can help you out a little better if they see what you're working with.

    I'm guessing that being [email protected]'9" means you have no muscle mass in addition to carrying some extra BF.

    No muscle mass, you would probably have to be 90 pounds to see abs.

    Lift weights, eat right

    What you need to do is fix your diet, start working out consistently and bulk to at least 160 pounds and maybe then consider cutting.

    show us a picture of "literally don't have any fat to lose"

    Because I dont think you understand what the term 'literal' means
