Move over thigh gap! With summer in full effect, scantily-clad celebrities and models are flaunting their super-chiseled abdomens. The latest fitness craze on social media is Ab Crack.

According to ElleAb Crack happens when your core is so defined that it looks like an irrigation ditch divides down the center of your stomach. The magazine sites that "while Ab Cracks vary in depth and definition, all Ab Cracks show us you've been in the gym."

Is Ab Crack #FitnessGoals or another unrealistic body trend? Without the help of genetics and a 24/7 trainer, you probably honestly won't make a dent in your abdomen. Ditch the ab crack and love whatever swimsuit body you got.
