    Lifts to strengthen Abs


    Hey everybody I'm looking for some lifts or other exercises that add muscle and build strength, I'm doing weighted sit ups and I know of a lot more but I just want to hear some advice and opinions.

    I'm not looking for spot reduction(it doesn't exist) but I want to maybe see what people have to say about packing on muscle for their abs.

    Thanks!

    They're just like any other muscle group. Hit them about once a week to increase size. Situps, Obliques, Floor Wipers, Hanging Leg Lifts, etc. etc.

    Total body movements; squats, deads, cleans, are also going to work your core.
