strong abs vs. six pack abs ??

today at my muay thai class a new guy showed up and at the end of the class we did a sit up excercise where a pair of 2 ppl sit up at the same time and touch hands when u r up. the new guy picked me as my partner. he was able to complete about 12 or maybe 13 situps to failure. while i was waiting for him toward my 30th sit up it was obvious that i was stronger. but after the class he took off his shirt and had a six pack which i still do not have a six pack and am trying to get. the question is how does he have a six pack if he is the same height and about medium built as me and i am able to complete more sit ups y dont i have a six pack and keep in mind that i have been eating very little food and i am down to 9% body fat

First off, you probably are not 9% bf if you have no abs. You get abs about 10ish.

Every single normally functioning human being has ABdominal muscles.
Many people seem to think that just because someones ab muscles are visible this implies superior strength to those without abs.

The human body changes all the time, his metabolism rate may be superior to yours thus having the ability to burn more fat quicker than yourself.
Ane xample of this being my brother who eats junk food constantly throughout the day, smokes, drinks everything yet hes skinnier than myself and older than myself even though i train.
Just watch the world strongman competitions.... not one of those guys has a visible sixpack.

I've got a six-pack, it's just hiding underneath the fat!

im not after a six pack, i train to get my core and abs stronger mostly but if i need to get to 10% bodyfat im knackered.
i think im about 24% atm, this will take ages but its come down from 30% (i was so unfit before)
