: The guy said: 'I have abs you can bounce a quarter off of'. Does it mean, that he has big abs, o what? Thank you.

Legend has it that new recruits in the U.S. military had to make their beds in such a way that the inspecting sergeant could bounce a quarter on the blanket. In other words, it was very tight. Abs, or abdominal muscles, are ideally tight (as opposed to big), with no flab around the belly.
