Diet advice Read pls jflynny17 6 5 monthsjostrosky (190): I was going by what you intake now. i typically go with 1.15 gram/lb of body weight so its a little more . you can adjust and take off 15-20gram of protein and move it over to your carbs because they are both 4 calories per gram or you can take it from protein and move to fat but fat is 9 calories per gram so only a couple grams of fat

Ab Exercises for Fused Spine xckks 3 7 monthskickinchicken (8527): Do not use and bending or twisting movements whatsoever. You should be focusing on your core and lower back strength. The anterior abdominal muscular development will follow at it's own pace for now. leg raises, planks, etc are best. Also, focus on pelvic flexibility to help reduce the need to bend your back and place added stress on it. Just google pelvic or hip mobility exercises. Joe Defranco has some good stuff on youtube.

If you keep cutting you're going to look like you don't lift. 2,000 calories is very low and you already mentioned that you're increasing your cardio. And stop program hoping. Stick to one program.

I can't shred around my belly NenadGM 17 1 yearBrianz (7): I think you will be able to shred your belly fat if you put some more effort. Have some patience you can achieve your goal. One of my friends who had similar situation had undergone liposuction from a clinic in Windsor, Canada. I think he had more fat around his belly than yours. Since he didn't have any patience he underwent the procedure. He should wait nearly 6 months to see the complete result and his surgeon has asked not a do vigorous...

Advise please! Katapocolypse 20 1 yearHamb0 (2884): You have most of it right, yea. I'll just explain a few details. Cardio is, strictly put, not necessary to lose weight. A calorie deficit IS necessary though. You can use cardio as a tool to expend extra calories, and create/increase the deficit. From my personal example, when i want to lose weight, i usually add in a little extra cardio, because it allows me to eat more, while im in a deficit. The options for me, would be something like eating...

Transformed myself, looking to get shredded SamirDripz 8 1 yearAndyCap (118): Okay. the next step would be to track your calories and macros. Macros are things that can be tweaked but in general people here advise a 50/30/20 split. There is more info in the faq about that. If you want to get body fat lower you are going to have to track your calories religiously for a while. Getting that knowledge in place is vital. Also i would advise you add in some HIIT intervals a few times a week. Find out your maintenance calories...

Ab and oblique exercises max12480 9 2 yearsRawsteel (940): If you value your back health, primarily stick to ab exercises where you don't flex your spine, i.e. isometric exercises like roll outs, ball pikes, stir the pot, planks etc. The last thing you want to do is crunches and sit-ups, especially with a twist (rotation). Why? Because according to Stuart Mcgills research, a crunch or sit-up generates at least 3,350 newtons (equivalent of 340 kg) of compressive force on the spine, and according to...

Top 3 Ab Exercises Fayzeh 26 2 yearsRawsteel (940): If you have a good crunch machine at your gym or one of these then i recommend that you use that as your "main" or only dynamic rectus abdominus exercise since it's alot easier compared to free weight crunches, i personally hate having to hold on to all the weights when doing free crunches :P And when it comes to volume 6-8 sets/40-60 reps twice a week is enough, i recommend some isometric training as well, like planks or the ab wheel.

Abs routine aesthet1x 7 4 yearsDuncan88 (13): Try hanging leg raises and superset with windshield wipers for a challenge, they're great for obliques and core strength if you can handle them.

Just seeking some advice , we are all worried about abs Illadian Jump to first page40Jump to last page 4 yearsThor (5028): This thread maynnnne 1) Squats and deadlifts are not "great" for building abs. All you get is an isometric contraction/use as stabilisers. 2) Specific abdominal exercises will bring the best results. They need to be built like any other. Cable crunches/incline weighted crunches or an ab machine will do fine. 3) Training any muscle more than 3 times over 7 days brings no additional hypertrophy. I've seen it suggested that 2 days...

Abs... BRANDON_12 18 4 yearscoolguy1993 (13234): I do a cablecrunch machine, sometimes incline weighted sit ups too. I always do 3 supersets of side bends,jack knife sit ups,leg raises with no rest, then plank f It usually takes 5 minutes at the end of a workout but has helped a bit I killed my abs yesterday from 5 sets of deads then 6 of squats so by the end they hurt like hell after the ab supersets etc

Ab training Whitewalls 11 4 yearssaylee (112): I would like to say that a strong core would show the presence of strong abs. Learning how dissociate the core helps a lot. Focused/Concentrate planks where you slowly adjust in angles to where you can literally feel more contraction in your mid/lower abdominal region. Leg raises really help, leg lifts, scissors. A good diet with a good cardio. I hope that helps a little.

Core Strength/ Balance & Stability Exercises correra911 4 5 yearsJayatfc11 (274): @Mcarey covered most, but you wanna hit more inner core! Planks would be one, you need to engage the core all the time, Pilates 100s are brilliant if done right, kneeling upright on an exercises ball up nice and tall engaging core and then eventually stand on it. Bum lifts on exercies ball while holding a medicine ball works the core! These work for me and improve my posture so you have a solid base! May I suggest a class of Pilates a week!

Adding mass to abs FijiSotia 23 5 yearsDukenhiemer (23938): I don't train my abs, but I should. The abs are just like any other muscle in the body and are slow twitch dominant. When I do train abs, which comes and go in phases... Haha. 4x8-12 weighted cable crunches gave me the best results.

So we all have problems training Abs G3NGHIS 23 5 yearslukecorney (1021): @batu when your lower spine curves inward towards your stomach
Feel like abs weren't effected today Zny93 11 5 yearsMarkovich (595): For me, I only get sore whenever I push my self harder then the previous workout IE adding weight on the last set or pushing out some xtra reps. If I do the same a few times in a row, I am compleatly sure that my muscles don't work nearly as hard as when I switch things up a bit or push myself harder. So i suggest to switch 1 or 2 exercises each workout. So instead of doing CGBP, do dips (weighted or not) just to get some change =)

If it's all loose skin (which is probably what it is) it will not return to how it was. When I've helped people loose weight that is always one of the things I keep an eye on. People who I have trained that have lost weight fairly quicky have all been left with sagging skin. Those that have taken their time have given their bodies time to adjust so their excess skin...
abb routines rklohe 12 5 yearsMrMailliw (4494): Truth is most guys cannot do straight leg hanging leg raises or a ton of weight on cable crunches with good form, even if they are big strong guys. I agree that they will grow to a degree without direct training but it is just that - only to a degree. Direct training and progressive tension overload will get you the thick strong abs you want :)
Lost Weight - Skin? Dude 12 5 yearswannabemuscular (32343): At your young age you have a great chance that the skin will come back in time. Make sure to keep it hydrated with a cocoa butter lotion or maybe some Bio Oil. Those stretch marks are yours to keep though . . .

cutting and building up cardio xlGrimlx 1 5 yearsxlGrimlx (94): So just got back to where i can get a real diet going again and control my sleep times to a regular schedule. Using both HIIT and LISS cardio since i need both. Still lifting hard just added the extra cardio was well. Started training with a pro mask with my HIIT training, wondering if anyone else has used them and can give me any tips or what all the advantages are with it.
Bulking advices Shredded 13 5 yearseknight (56914): The idea that your genetics will not allow you to gain muscle is hogwash. If you lift heavy and eat right you WILL gain mass. At what rate and how much is individual specific, but it WILL happen. Now, it's clear that that's not your goal and I respect that, but just say, "hey, that's not my goal," as you did and leave it at that. People who blame genetics for their lack of progress piss on every person who- like them and most...

Losing my abs ectomorph94 5 5 yearsmikew (11229): A+ @ectomorph94 If your metabolism is fast then you should be able to stay relatively lean while bulking. I agree with @OptimusPrime - only reservation I have is if your BF% is over, let's say 11 or 12%, then I would take a step back and re-assess. It is easier to make a correction now than when you're in the 14-15 range. However, it does not sound like you're at that stage yet. My $0.02.

Lean everywhere except abs 5%bf struggle moggzy_88 7 5 yearssolaris (13): I'd like to add that before shows or photoshoots, many athletes waterload for a week, manipulating sodium intake. It flattens your skin out, pops out the veins and bulges the muscles if done right.
HIIT jkkj303 4 5 yearsacxonline (1): I am currently trying to retain muscle and burn fat, so at the end of my workouts, I would go to the track and sprint straights and walk curves about 2-3 times a week. Does it matter if I walk or jog the curves? I assumed I wanted to walk as if I'm taking a 30-40 second rest for the next set.
abs remy10 4 5 yearsmikestheguy (261): I mean you could try working it in that often but I don't think you'll recover fast enough. Remember you are working abs with a number of other lifts as well. I would start with trying it every 4-5 days. If you are recovering well and increasing your weight/reps then you can try reducing the rest time to 3-4 days. I personally go heavy because again the abs are a muscle just like the pecs, biceps, quads, ect. Your not going to be doing 1 set of...

Rep range for abs. dinuman22 14 5 yearsmikestheguy (261): @quepasa your argument is supported 100% by broscience... nothing that Ronnie Coleman or Joseph Rakich says has been scientifically supported... as you lift weights you start to activate more neuromuscular motor units in each muscle... if you do simply incline bench you're not going to only recruit more "upper pec" muscle fibers and neuromuscular motor units... its a graded contraction across the entire chest in which you have NO...

Work outs to target lower abs ? JTsLiP 8 5 yearseknight (56914): Sure- many people remain firmly convinced that muscle isolation is a reality because they can "feel" different movements more in one region of a muscle than in others. This is not the case at all, but instead, differentiated neural feedback from motor units depending on the relative length of the component fibers. This feedback tends to be (or is interpreted by the brain as) more intense when the fibers in question are either shortened...

How to stop geting bloated! mark 14 5 yearsMatt7 (67): Mark, you sure it's not just the way your abs are developed? Weighted crunches etc can often give a bloated appearance when it's just the structure.

Average time to develope a 6 pack? TriggaTony 5 5 yearsDexdbest (4792): Depends on your body type, as an ectomorph would barely need cardio nad just more direct ab work, maybe about four weeks, same for mesomorphs but for endomorphs........its just about losing the fat and then building the muscle so maybe eight or nine weeks
Training obliques or not? Jusu 4 5 yearsThor (5028): I wouldn't worry about adding on so much mass that you lose shape; they simply can't get that juicy, HGH guts excepted. I have heard a rumour that standing military press might thicken your waist. I guess with sufficient weight, there might be some truth to it. I perform mine seated just in case lol.
Short home ab workout for 6 pack abs axdelosangeles 1 6 yearsaxdelosangeles (10): This is a very good and short ab workout specially for beginners for 6 pack abs.

Every exercise is weighted except Decline obliques, planks and dragonflag/wheel.
Obliques ectomorph94 7 6 yearsJusu (618): 10 minutes of standing side twisting with a broom stick after every workout and your obliques will shine. I also do once a week oblique crunches with cable 3x8-15 and bodyweight decline crunches 2x once too.

Ab Split Question dwatson 20 6 yearsdwatson (26511): I do plenty compound movements. I have great abs, No homo. i've started a bulk diet and have lost definition. Sometimes its easier to get out of there before it gets ghey busy and go home and while still on a larger body pump, get my meal in me. then later when i have some down time hit some abs. Until then, im going to try and do them at the gym, bc then there is still some motivation. I see what your saying though EFJK.
Abs: Fact of Myth? ectomorph94 11 6 yearsG3NGHIS (8532): Well, sometimes lower back pain is because of lack of core strength. However, if I were the doctor I would have put more of an emphasis on CORE STRENGTH, not abdominal strength. Like Russian twist instead of sit ups.

Cardio when bulking slamdoozle 11 6 yearsslamdoozle (21): The olive oil thing was a joke but I actually just bought a bottle of it and I'm going to start drinking some daily. It may be a good option to drink some before games as it will give me high calories without making me feel too full and sluggish from eating a lot. I'll try and follow my intake more closely and bump it up a bit.

ab ripper x simplymuscle 3 6 yearsAnkie (876): P90X is just a great way to burn fat to expose your abs, and if you have no muscle it will build you a pretty standard frame. But P90X wont work if you don't follow thier diet as well. I have a old, was close, friend who did it. Amazing results... Seriously impressive. But, you really need to put out and follow all of the details required.
