How to have a six pack and an great upper body…?

Question by coopfan91: How to have a six pack and an great upper body…?
Im very confused. Im 18, male, and 130lbs. Im a vegetarian. I would call myself quite active I spend 3 days a week doing an hour or more abs workouts and 3-4 days of lifting/bowflex/free weights for and hour or more.
I have been upping caloric intake and protein intake to hopefully gain some lean muscle mass on my arms and shoulders. Ive already noticed a difference in about a month and a half ive been doing the lifting (ive been doing abs for over a year and have a pretty decent six pack) But heres where im confused… Some places say you should eat less calories then you burn so that you will burn the fat around your mid section so you abs so, but other places say i need to be eating around 2500 calories a day! Is this more then what my body will burn on its own? I eat roughly 1250-1500 calories a day, i keep my carbs under 150g and my protein high 90-120g. Im just confused on how i can bulk up my upper body and not gain fat around my midsection! If i up my caloric intake will my diet (mainly egg whites, fruits, veggies, and some fish and a slice or two of whole wheat bread [no pasta or dairy] and my exercise plan keep my abs visible and my upper body getting bigger! Any advice! Im sick of being scrawny in my upper body

The key to having abs is CARDIO. Everyone has abs underneath the flab.

Keep a high protein, moderate carb, low fat diet. And you’ll see the results. I suggest looking at this website, you’ll learn a lot.

    It is called Bulking and Cutting
    You Bulk to build muscle
    you cut to lose all the weight gained from bulking so that you have a sixpack again
    you can also try just adding two reps a week to your workout then after you reach 15 reps, up the weight
