continue muscle build?

Im a 18 year old male. I had apendix surgery when i was 10. Now I still have a 8 inch scar going vertical just an inch right of my belly botton.
Right now Im trying to work on my abs but I am concerned if i will get a six pack. due to that when i work out my abs I get this feeling like my skin is ripping at the scar area.
Should I Continue??

um i guess yes, my guess is that your doing real hard ab workout, like doing crunches upside down? just do nomal crunches and leg lifts go to www.myfit.ca for good ab workout tips. I stoped working out for 5 months and got a sick belly but in september i started again and did a mild diet and bam i have a 6 pack now, slight though but its a six pack.

Hi.
You can continue your abs work-out, but do it mildly.  The skin near your scar won't rip because of the work-out.  It has completely healed after 8 years.  There might be a cosmetic problem as the scar is apparent.
Good luck.
