For the bottom of them to show it shouldn't take much more than not having dunlop. Most men don't store much fat below the femoral head.

Upper abs already feel fine and a number of my regular exercises already work them so I kinda am thinking its a waste of time to be doing crunches and what not when I could be on the treadmill..
'Feeling' them shouldn't be relied upon. Not only is the peripheral nervous system in the abdominal region all messed up (hence stomach pain from a testicular blow), but the 'feel' you get is from higher-repetition exercises being used on already-tired muscles that build up a decent amount lactic acid.
