A disturbing new social media body trend known as the “ab crack” is putting the “six pack” to shame. Social media users who work out A LOT are flashing their “ab cracks” left, right and centre.
Basically it’s what happens to the human anatomy when you have a really flat stomach and then get a six pack.
Let’s take a look at this so-called ab crack and other ridiculous body trends and let’s look at them in “Kardashian”, because they seem to have them all.

Models Bella Hadid and Jourdan Dunn are also sporting "ab cracks" and some health experts are pointing to malnutrition as the cause. As opposed to encouraging young women to starve themselves I can't help but want to avoid an "ab crack" as much as possible. They look horrible.
2. Six pack
"Six packs" are so retro, thanks to the "ab crack", however "ab cracks" and "six packs" can often go hand-in-hand, particularly when they are due to intense workouts as opposed to freakishly long-limbed modelesque genetics or starvation, as has been suggested by some.
