Can anyone recommend some ab workouts that have shown them some positive results? Currently I'm just trying to do 300 sit ups a day in one form or another ( crunches, with a medicine ball,scissors, etc) and hoping that it will work out for me. It's really helped with the upper four abs but I'm having a hard time developing the bottom two and getting rid of the fat, any tips?

I understand that diet is a huge part of this and have change my diet to reflect. I don't weight much, 120lbs, so I dont have much weight to lose; just looking for a way to burn off that extra fat since the cardio/sit up exercises that I'm doing don;t seem to be as efficient as I would like them to be.

Abs are made in the kitchen my man! Other than that crunches/situps, weighted leg lifts, decline sit ups, squats. Squats(IMO) is hands down the best overall excercise for working most of your major muscles.

Everyone has abs it's just covered with body fat, you drop your body fat percentage you will get abs. Working your abs makes them more toned and harder. I am getting back into cardio, I pushed myself a bit too hard earlier this week my legs have been sore as hell the past 2 days. Anyway, most important thing is diet count your calorie and protein intake in the morning you can eat a higher calorie or protein count because you have all day to burn it off and it's good to eat more protein than usual after your workout, preferably within an hour after the workout.

If this information is incorrect then i apologize but this is what i have gathered from research and a friend of mine who is a body builder.

go to youtube and search 8 minute abs, if you do that everyday with cardio youll get a six pack

Ab ripper X. They get you doing like 10 different workouts for 15 mins. day after i did that i had had to roll outta bed. That every few days + running/biking and you'll be able to do it.

I've been running and walking all last week but i had to just walk for a few days because i pushed myself too hard with running and my legs are sore as fuck. Trying to drop some weight and then work abs when i start seeing them but i am also thinking of working the upper body slowly while i am running.

Good thread. I was in decent shape a while back but let myself go again. Started getting love handles that actually go out further than my fkn waistband on my shorts. :hsrun:

I can still run, but I need to do something about what/how often I eat.

Yea work on your diet first all home cooked nothing processed even your bread only eat wheat products and cook your own meals. It's not hard to cook i actually enjoy making a delicious meal, makes me kind of proud of myself.

First off 300 sit up a day every day? Come on now.

Cardio is probably the most important thing for abs seeing as you probably have a little fat over them. Start eating better and do cardio every day THEN every other day or every 3rd do abs. Also you dont need to do 300 situps.

Usually do something like;

Leg Raises, In and Outs, Mason twist, and some machines at the gym.

Yeah ab ripper is the shit. I've actually moved on to doing 400 sit ups a day and have been noticing a huge difference. I work out my abs three times a week, so about 1200 ( I combine leg kicks, crunches, obliques with 35lbs, and sit ups with 45 on a incline. It's been working out pretty well so far!

whenever your doing any sort of crunches, exhale right at the crunch. Exhale hard, by doing this you are contracting the ab muscles. This is vital when doing abs. The more contraction, the better.

meh crunches/situps/p90x all takes too long.



Try some weight training, dont forget your abs are a muscle too. Try combining weight training with some dedicated cardio and a solid diet. 6-pack in 4-8 weeks. Depending on bf and your dedication level.
