The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Help With My ABS...

    I really havnt trained my abs in around 3 weeks or a month now probably longer than that. I am wondering how I should start incorporating them again? I would go with pull day since I am doing a pull/push/legs split. But when I think about it my pull day is too long already. Always pushing 55-60 minutes.

    I am curious what type of routine I should adopt etc. I am probably going to go with a few sets of cable crunches.

    I forgot where I saw this, but it works well: do a regular crunch on the floor but get something under your lower back (preferable soft and comfy) to put your spine in a hyperextended like position. Then look straight up and crunch upwards. The added ROM really helps because abs have little to begin with. It's comparable to doing calf raises off a block instead of off the floor. When it comes to ab training, remember one thing: spinal flexion

    cheers

    Hehe.. anyway yeah I have heard numerous times that weighted Swiss ball crunches are one of the most effective ab exercises out there. Those along with cable crunches.

    Hanging Leg Raises, Exercise Ball Crunches(weighted or non) and Bicycle crunches are some of the top three.

    I added in cable crunches after legs to help strengthen my abs and aid in squats and SLDLs.

    its good after legs as your hip flexors are weaker.
    therfore making the bas work harder as hip flexor not assisting as much.
    my exprience - joined gym 10 years ago, 6 1/2 years hard weight training exprience.
