Take a look at the premade routines on the site, thats not a very well put together routine.
BGB includes those 5X5s you've got there and other 3X8 lifts. Thats not a very good routine, looks like you'll overtrain at the very least.

not sayin this in a mean way, but for ur benifit: you wont get abs with situps
the best way is doing leg lifts, bicycle krunches, floor wipers, static holds/side statics, v-ups, jackknife situps, double krunches, ect. you have do get your abs adjusted to more than one type of exercise to get abs(and not have a layer of fat covering it) :P

well from my experience, adding lots of different ab exercises really lets you shape your abs, because they wont get adjusted to only one exercise. and alot of those strengthen ur abs really fast, which helps for keeping ur body stable when weightlifting.
i just think abs should be worked alot, just in my opinion, but its ur workout
Weightlifting builds core strength all by itself.
And it's not just my workout - those are my abs in my 'tar.
Direct ab work is overrated. You want abs to show: eat less food than you need.
I did look at the sites premades, but the problem is access to a gym to do all of those. I cant afford to join a gym currently so I have to make due with what I have at my house.
