Ab crack is the new 6 pack: Disturbing instagram trend replaces the thigh gap


The newest disturbing fitness trend is the ab crack, and it is causing just as much concern as the thigh gap. Elle affectionately calls it the “new six pack” and reports that this unattainable physical feature has replaced the thigh gap, and if the mass of Instagram postings with the #abcrack hashtag is any indication of its popularity, health experts are going to be busy trying to dissuade trend seekers from emulating it.

Instagram is full of men and women (mostly women) documenting their progress with obtaining the ab crack — many are showing off the one they already have or expressing the wish to get one. The fad has its admirers and critics, and the debate about self-love and acceptance is front and center once again.
