    Own ab routine

    I was going up in weight every 2 weeks after 2 full routines a week. But results were becoming minimal... so i started listening to my friend about changing my routine every week so that i can maximize my growing potential b/c you are constantly affecting your fast/slow twitch fibers...


    For diet i mainly eat Tuna/ Eggs / Chicken / Oatmeal or Whole grain cereal. No fast food no drinking no garbage basically lol Occasional carbs.. like whole wheat bread
    About 100~200gs protein a day i try for

    Tell me what you think

    I personally take in between 350 and 400 grams of protein a day...I forget my exact ratio but it is about 55P/35C/20F and like 3500cals...

    You need to eat to put on weight.

    I would personally change the routine quite a bit too.
    You're overtraining like crazy...and I NEVER use that word...

    I'll try and get more specific in a minute...

    I would switch things up to a more classic routine...I personally like High Volume Training, Hitting each muscle group once a week. Working out 4 or 5 times a week.

    As far as your lifts for chest, drop the reps a little and conentrate on adding some weight. I'd go with...

    Flat Bench would go something like: warmup set, a set of 8, with the 8th rep being pretty hard to complete, then another with 6 reps at a higher weight, then another with 4 reps at a higher weight. Hopefully that last rep would need to be assisted.

    This would promote hypertrophy...

    And for abs, I like body weight exercises, but different ones everyday. One day I do some swixx ball crunches, maybe 4 sets of 30. The next I'lll do hanging leg raises at 4 sets of 15 (holding the final raise for 5 seconds). The next will be decline crunches for 4 sets of 25. Get creative with it, ya know.

    I've see guys that do no ab work and have amazing abs too... These guys will do a lot of big lifts like squats, deads, ect. without a belt, to hit those stabalizer muscles.



    I like to change routines every 3 months...but again that is up to preference.

    Thnx


    Thank you and for abs we do some crazy routine and maybe that makes sense im just over working my muscles thus they cant repair + grow :-/

    For abs
    We do about 15-20 different excercises hitting everyaspect of the abdominal section.. they are getting stronger.. but maybe i need to work on diet.. b/c i can feel that they like a rock but nothing to show for it :-/
