slang To rappel down from a mountain-climbing route. "Ab" is a shortening of "abseil," a largely British term meaning "rappel." Primarily heard in UK. The climb itself is very challenging and fun, but there's nothing to do once you reach the top, so I usually just ab off straight away when I finish the climb.
Another name for the abdominal muscles. Ugh, my abs are so sore from that workout last night. That model's abs are so toned, it's ridiculous.
Very strong, well-defined abdominal muscles. The term alludes to the ridges and rigidity of washboards, which were commonly used when washing clothes and linens by hand. I know it's superficial and petty, but I am a sucker for a guy with washboard abs. I had a chubby gut for most of my life, but after a lot of hard work, I finally have the washboard abs I've always wanted.
