Do abs grow?
this is something that i have been wondering for a while a freind and i have talked about it and he says no matter what you do ab muscles dont grow they just get harder. Is this true? I hate my love handles and i am afraid of trying to work my obliques because im afraid its going to make me look wider.

train as another muscle: learn the movement, increase weight and don't perform 10000000000 reps of bad crunches.

Abs certainly grow as mentioned before. However maybe to shed some light on your friends statement, he could be mislead and thinking as abs grow they become denser with the increased muscle mass/tone?

Best bet it to wear a belt alot to avoid distention during heavy lifting. Do alot of ab work like crunches and knee ups but not decline sit ups etc.

I don't understand, I thought decline situps were good? Been part of my arsenal for a while.. I always superset my last set with weighted decline sit ups.. ?

They are a solid exercise for strengthening but can also make the gut stuck out slightly as well.

I like the developed abs look, but some people take it too far in my opinion, like a lot of professional bodybuilders nowadays. I think the older bodybuilders had a better idea of size and aesthetics.

agreed on Dexter being the only semi normal pro bodybuilder now a days to not be disgustingly distorted imo
