You should know something that not every abs are  made to be same. Many have 6 packs, some have 8 and legitimately some gets 10packs. Also not every muscles genetics/types are same. Some peoples get a visible abs in just a bit of time But peoples go through hard time on getting the same change for the same previous state. Never give up on physiques things by saying that you have bad genetics. So, Just work harder and reach your goals. 

And most importantly, The advice/tips i give to everyone is that “it’s all in your mind”. If you go with proper mindset and push with a proper motivation no one can stop you from reaching your goals.
