6 pack?: In order to have a "6 pack" you need to be fit but also have a low percentage of body fat. This is an exercise and diet issue. There are many different specific work out routines to explore.

Abs and cardio.: You need to strengthen the abdominal muscles with crunches and knee lifts, for example, but you also need to shed the fat so the muscles will show - cardiovascular exercise is necessary in this regard.
