    How do I fill these hollow parts below my ribs?

    Hey guys,

    I'm a newbie here, 28yo guy who trains at home. I go mountain biking almost everyday for about 20KM, and every other day I do a bunch of crushes, sit-ups, push-ups & free weights for about 25 minutes.

    I've been doing it for about a month now, and I'm quite pleased with the results. I eat healthy, low fat, and 4x per day. No supplements though...

    Below I have posted 2 pictures of my body.

    The question I have is: Where the arrows are, you can see hollow areas. It's just below my ribs really. I have always kind of had this, but now that I don't drink a lot, and eat healthy, it seems these areas are more visible now. It's where the bottom of my ribs stick out. It's something I don't like, and I was wondering if there is some kind of training that I can do to make this less visible?

    Thanks a million!

    You don't want to fill in those spots unless you want to fill them in with fat.
    Never shall innocent blood be shed, yet the blood of the wicked shall flow like a river. The Three shall spread their blackened wings and be the vengeful striking hammer of God.

    Biscuits and gravy!

    Could just be the way you're built. But, the only thing you can modify for that part of your physique will be ab size. Abs can grow like other muscles. So, I'd graduate from regular crunches to weighted crunches. Since you workout at home, just hold a weight plate (not a paper plate, unless there are biscuits and gravy on it) up near sternum (or a little higher) while you crunch.

    If you have access to cables, you can do kneeling weighted crunches, which would allow you to go much heavier.

    You flex your abs instead of pulling them in...

    Was this really a serious question?
