Ab confusion?

I have been going to the gym consistently for around 4 months now and I am getting fairly cut. My body fat is low enough to have vascularity from my shoulders down, but I don’t have abs. I never really train abs, but I heard you will have them regardless if you train them or not if your body fat is low. I was wondering if my problem is my body fat percentage is too high, or i need to actually focus on abs?

Home Gym Help

Price gouging is ridiculous right now. Everything on amazon was jacked up so much in price. All I have is a 40 pound weighted vest, a 30 pound kettlebell, and two 20 pound dumbbells. Now that it’s pretty clear we won’t be going back to the gym until at least may, I need some advice on more home gym items. Even pull-up bars are going up in price. crazy. If anyone built a good setup around them for not a high coat please let me know what you got. thanks

What type of protein would be the best for my situation

Hello! So I've been lifting for a bit and started researching and looking into protein so I could take my gains up a bit. I've researched between whey and casein, whey isolate, and most surface-level knowledge. One thing, I have stomach problems and issues with my appetite so sometimes it's hard for me to eat before or after the gym. I know whey is best shortly before or after a workout (correct me if I'm wrong) and casein is best taken before bed because of its slow release. I don't think it really matters as long as I get the protein but for what I got going on would casein before bed be the best?

Unsure how to start working out

I (24F) am looking for a bit of advice here, I usually don't really have to do anything to stay fit cause of my two jobs (at an outdoor climbing park and as event security). Now those are both closed due to the virus and I'm noticing I'm moving a lot less and not feeling my best.

I have never actually gone to a gym or did home workouts, but I was wondering in anyone had some advice on where to start and tips on not giving up on it after a few days. I would prefer not to go on runs as to avoid people outside as much as possible.

Any help is appreciated!
