The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

    from everything I've read crunches target the upper abs the most..... try em with weight on your chest.

    You can't isolate your abs, you can only make them bigger as a whole. If you're already doing weighted crunches, try adding more weight.

    You can't, so we don't.

    Diet makes them show, if that's what you are after.
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

    I has a blog.
    I has a facebook.

    i think your the first person to complain that your upper abs aren't as good as your lower. genetics, your abs already look great, just keep doing what you've been doin.
