    Default Weird Abs!

    So I have been concerned about this problem since I was 16. I am 18 now and my abs are still abnormal.
    all my abs are normal except the top 2. The top right one is double the size of the top left one! I once read that they would eventually develop but still no change. I do train them equally.

    Pics? Muscle shape is pretty permanent though, you can really only change their size.

    Could this cause problems?

    The only reason I ask, is because when my daughter was born, she had an umbilicle hernia, right above her belly button.. so if she sat up or used her stomach muscles, you'd see the hernia pop out.. Dr said as she got older, the muscles would go closer together and that the hernia would disappear as she got older. And it did. It wasn't anything serious, just superficial.. but it did look crazy.

    This is probably a question for a doctor.

    Not really, it's a pretty simple question that is easy to answer. A doctor would just say the same thing, you can change size but not shape.

    Yeah, Ran said it, this is just muscle shape it is what it is, end of story. Not gonna cause any problems, and even if it would cause problems, there's nothing to be done about it anyways.

    It may or may not form 'normally' when you stop growing, or maybe even when you reach that muscular maturity of your late 20s/early 30s, but chances are low. If you really think it's weird just don't stay super cut and just have a flat stomach.

    That's my plan if I don't like my abs when I finally see them...

    I have a similar thing, the top ab muscle on the left is larger than on the right. It's always been that way, never caused me a problem, so I wouldn't worry about it. If it starts hurting, then worry!
    Determination....
    Focus....
    Do it!

    If you mean its different in size like a small pizza vs a large pizza (I don't know why I chose that analogy), then its pretty much gonna stay like that because the tendinous intersections basically defining its borders. And you can't isolate each "pack".
