Art M I've done 6 sets total of hanging leg raises total (5 sets of 10 and 1 set of 14) while in a pull up position on a parallel pull up bar, along with one minute side planks, for about a week already and I'm seeing results already! Soon it'll be time to up the numbers!
Kimberly K answered the question How to get better lower abs and essentially stronger core?
I have found that a high proten diet helps reduce bloat in the ab area so as you are working out, remember to fuel your body with the right foods so when you build that defination, you can see it!
Personally, I would go with the 3 hard sessions in a week, rather than the implied lesser most days efforts. the body needs time to rest, adapt and grow so 3 sessions would work well. As others have said, doing other forms of cross training would...
It's better (and safer) to have rest days, even though you can still exercise every day (just not be too focused on the core). 1-3 hard sessions a week that you mentioned really do need some time for recovery. If you don't want that (and also aren...
My son is 16 5'8 amd 125 lbs. I agree the thinner you are the easier it is because of the lower body fat. My son is in track and cross country so a lot of cardio. His coach is a huge beliver in core strength so she h...

For dance, I find that a strong core comes better from planking than crunches.
Your abs are there, they're just not showing. One thing I would note is not to go too extreme with any weight based training. Being the age you are, your body is still developing and heavy weight traning can cause...
Good nutrition and work will get you there, I don't think your age will stop you! Try planks - I find those great for my core. Maybe more than you are looking for, but I am currently doing the Insanity workout seri...
Apart from the great exercise advice already given, don't forget the food and nutritional aspects as well
My daughter is 15 and she has a beautiful six pack, of course she has been dancing ballet since she was 4years old. With hard work and dedication it's possible, no matter what age! :o)
Using the TRX at the gym helped me a lot to start and see some definition and I'm not the biggest of people. It's all bodyweight training as I'm not the biggest fan of weights. This conditions your back and core at t...
skinny people often have abs because they have a low body fat percentage. Start doing lifts such as squats, deadlifts and overhead presses, and your abs will become more pronounced if you're already at low body fat

Yeah those machines are useless. They don't consider muscle mass at all. My friend who is 85 kg and about 5'10 was given a redic BMI for somebody who is around 11-12% body fat

These scales are not accurate whatsoever and depend a lot on how hydrated you are. Good old calipers work better or a professional measurement in a BOD pot to get an accurate result.
