very sore hip flexors after a new workout--help?

I tried a new ab workout on Thursday and I must have been cheating with my hip flexors too much because today (two days later) the soreness is incredible. If I describe my workout and my symptoms, could the hive mind try to identify which muscle is sore and suggest ways to stretch it? [more inside]

How is abbs formed?

I have great six-pack abs when I concentrate on flexing them. But while walking around relaxed, my stomach looks only slightly better than "average" (or worse if I've recently eaten :P). To fix this, purely for vanity purposes, do I need (a) more cardio; (b) more ab exercises; (c) diet changes; (d) something else? [more inside]

Ab Workouts

I want abs. I'm 5'8", 134lbs. I've never worked out and don't have time for a gym. Basically I'm looking for a good routine that I can do in, say, 15min a morning that will strengthen my abs and, if possible, give some visible definition. Right now I have a small belly. I've heard mixed things about crunches. Anyone have a good routine that meets my needs? I'd like to see results in a month or two.
