    Ab Training

    What does everyone do for their ab training? I need 3-5 exercises I can rotate, what kind of sets and reps are you using?

    I'm sure if he wanted responses from the bodybuilding and fitness crowd, he'd post it in that forum.

    My favorites are Ab Pulldowns, Spread Eagle Sit-Ups (w. weight), Saxon Side Bends, Side Bends

    Occasionally, I'll do Ab Wheel or Pike-Ups w. "Power Wheel" ('power wheel' image:

    I try to do one ab exercise on squat/dl day. Usually 6-10 reps for 3-5 sets. Occasionally up to 15 reps.

    What are your goals? (That'll determine where this belongs)

    I train abs 2x a week, varying sets and reps, varying movements.

    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 break my ab training into rotational and flexion movements.

    For flexion: standing cable crunches, loaded swiss ball crunches, decline sit ups, reverse leg raises and spread eagles. I add other ones in butthese are the main ones.

    For rotation: cable chops, swiss ball russian twists, swiss ball kneeling med ball twists and core board twists.

    "Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"
