Abs - how??

  1. Abs - how??


    Whats a good ab workout - i never feel like im working them?
    I cant do 8-15 reps and feel the burn its always 60 reps+

    I work out at home with a multi gym and free weights, so something straight forward.

    Ab wheel.. Weighted crunches... Decline sit up's with weight.. All these hit the abs hard. Also hanging leg raises. You only need stimulus you dont need to annihilate them. Thier a small muscle group

  3. Squats, deadlifts, standing over head press, weighted lunges all work the abs

  4. heavy farmers walk works the core hard, along with everything else. I like isometrics for abs, like six inches and planks. Time yourself and try to beat that time every workout. It gets intense quick.

    I agree and disagree... This is just based on myself so everyone is different. I done all of these and never had the best of abs. I eventually implemented isolation movements. Ie weighted crunches. Weighted decline sit up's. Ab wheel and hanging leg raises. My abs became FAR better. The best i have ever had them look. I wish i had hit them with thier own workout a couple years back. I now train them directly twice a week. It takes about 20-25 mins so its no a lengthy workout. Next thing is body fat... Remove that layer around thier and your naturally gonna have abs anyway. But building them up should still let them show when your bodyfat is slightly higher.

  6. Another suggestion: YouTube some of your favorite boxer’s ab routines. They’re usually insane. The core is so important for a fighter.

  7. Weighted carries (farmers/waiters walks etc) - do single arm as well as two handed.

    Build your own slosh pipe - carry it, squat with it. Just stand with it - crazy good for abs.

    Ab wheel I believe has been shown to create very high levels of an activation when done right (too many people let the lower back sag)

    Palloff presses are a stable for me but fall outs, anti presses, any think using a trx in a plank type position

    Hollow holds, Russian twists, v sits etc

  8. great thanks guy sive got myself an ab wheel and watched videos on how to do it properly re: back

    Ive got myself an inclined bench too.

    should be gtg
