Add pushups daily, as much as you can and you should get that in two years.

Idk why people are recommending press ups lol. OP should work in the 8-20 rep range and make sure to progressively overload the exercises.

Abs are made in the kitchen and all about diet. You can do as many sit ups and crunches as you want, it won’t give you abs. Your body fat % has to be low enough for your abs to show. Don’t neglect your workouts but you certainly need to focus on your diet and dropping body fat to get the visible abs.

It’s more about a balanced workout then the abs themselves

Fair enough, OP would also have to work the posterior side of his/her body and his/her legs too.

High Intensity Workouts. Lots of situps, crunches, upside down bicycles, planks, press-ups, squats, and hill sprints.

Will build the muscle & burn the fat.

And diet. Don't eat sh!t.

Learn how muscles work and how human muscle structure is built, and then you'll maybe undestand.

Explain how press ups will build your abs when your deltoids, triceps and chests are the limiting factors. Nobody fails press ups bc their abs not strong enough.

Simply all muscles of stomach have to work while doing pushups, there's whole body to carry and it's a different type of movement.
Sit ups are important, but you need to do also other excercises of stomach muscles, including push ups. Then you should excercise your back a lot too, if you don't want to walk like a monkey.

And having visible muscles all around doesn't make you strong. Partly because the size might be coming also from inflammation caused be bad training. Partly because hardly ever people at gym excercise all muscles equally and properly. I've seen those amateur culturists competing against retired coal miners. The gym guys looked great (except for most of them had monkey-like posture because they didn't excercise their back and enlarged, possibly also inflammated muscles of stomach and chest were bending them forward. Miners looked poorly, only except they were big relatively to their height, they had fat here and there and they totally destroyed gym guys in strenght competitions.

Okay, sure your abs are extremely isometrically activated in a push up but your not gonna fail pushups bc of weak abs. If you want an isometric hold type exercise for the ab you would recommend a plank bc it isolates the abs effectively and no other muscle could be the limiting factor.

Your second point is irrelevant, firstly exercises don't inflame the muscles to make them permanently bigger, that is unheard of and also nobody's dream body is that of a coal miner. Also, I am sure the gym guys would be able to beat the coal miners in most exercises except those with the mechanics similar to a deadlift.

So you suggest that one should train to have a weak body with a few features which are trendy for a moment. (From what I've obserced, right now guys want to have ABS on a stomach that bulky they look like they're pregnant)
It's silly to train a very particular group of muscles while ignoring others. There is a certain limit of excercise muscles can take, training just one group is a waste of time, as it enlarges one structure, remaining you weak everywhere else. Not to mention if you have some unnecessary fat, you'll get rid of it quicker excercising all muscles.

Inflammation might take a year to recover from, and you can very well damage muscles, even permanently, if you overload muscles with wrong rouitnes. Even you don't damage muscles, there's a good chance of damaging tendons. And you don't really recover from that. Every injury, even recovered, leaves it weaker and more likely to be damaged again. I know what I'm saying, I caught injuries both from gym, and extensive piano training with faulty technique. Took me more than a year get full control over my right hand again. And it still pains years after in certain positions when stress is put to it, and gets easily injured if any mistake is done. All thanks to incompetent teachers and trainers.

No I don't suggest that, your creating a strawman argument here. OP wants abs, you recommend pushups which don't build abs and I call you out on that. Okay show me proof that bad exercises cause inflammation which enlarges the muscles for up to a year.

You’re kind of putting words in Dax_Swagg3r ‘s mouth. He didn’t say those things. You’re twisting it to suit your narrative. Also, push ups would be a pretty bad exercise choice if you’re as obsessed with maximal strength as you seem to be. Planks are actually arguably more suited to this, ironically.

No. I do those anyway and I have a bit of a belly going. I have been training in a 10kg weighted vest. You could try doing some core with additional weights? Or do normal training with a weighted best?

Yes you can.
The sit ups will help you achieve abs at a higher body fat level.
Visible abs is all about diet though.
