Your Ab Routine?

  1. Your Ab Routine?


    Aside from conventional compound moves that work abs, what do you throw in for a few isolation sets at the end of the workouts?

    I'm a fan of weighted leg raises, ab wheel rollouts, and weighted incline crunches. Seems to work the whole core.

    Any favorites of you?


  2. TRX pikes, inverted situps, and planks keep me in good spirts

    Floor sweepers, dragon breaths, planks on a fitness ball, mountain climbers, oblique lateral dips with a 45lb plate, hanging sweepers

  5. L sits on gymnastic rings, flutter kicks, planks and mountain climbers. I like to do them in between changing lifts

  6. Sex

  7. I do a set or two of weighted sit-ups at the end of most workouts (3 days a week). I get most of my core training via heavy deadlifts, squats, and weighted pull-ups. At least that's my philosophy!

  8. Ab wheel, weighted ab wheel once I am stronger.. I think nothing else is needed but sometimes I do what I call "Stallone Cycle"..
    Crunches then side raises then leg raises
    50 each 5 times no rest. Was not able to finish it so far

  9. I have found that doing elevated planks against the wall are really good to throw into a routine

  10. How about movements that actually activate the rectus abdominus, and not the hip flexors, Ql, etc.?

    Breathing crunches
    Bear walks
    PPT band resisted crunches on a swiss ball

    ... to name a few
