    What do you guys do for abs? I do plenty of sit ups and stuff like that, but I need to find a way to blast my lower abs, as it's the only part that I'm having trouble with.

    lower abs are the hardest. Bicycle crunches are what works best for me. And hanging leg lifts.

    i dont do direct ab work. most people will tell you the best way to build abs is through heavy compound lifts that require stabilization, squats, deadlifts, overhead press. hanging leg raises work good though. for lower abs though some reason when i do leg curls i feel it crazy there.

    Want a couple exercises that murder your abs but you prolly aint doin em?

    One arm, flat bench, DB presses. When you're using heavy weight on one side of your body your abs are constantly stressed to keep your ass on the bench. The highest I've gone with this is 85 and I repped that 6 times.


    Pull-Overs. The thing is you have to lay on the bench like you would while doing presses and let your neck hang off the end of the bench. As you lower the weight and go to bring it back your abs absolutely have to work to their full potential.

    Heavy compounds most def. work your abs but the work done to em isn't gonna make em pop, it's gonna increase their max potential.

    With the exception of Front Squats, don't do heavy compounds if your trying to develop your abs.

    Holding a weight overhead is great ab work. It works those stabilizers too.

    As for abs, you have to do weighted exercises and tons of cardio.

    bicycle crunches as slowly as possible. i don't know what they are called but when you have your back a little bit off of the ground and you're balancing on your tailbone and you do lift up your legs and then basically invert it by lifting your legs a little bit off of the ground by like 4-6 inches and then do sit ups. lay on your back and keep your legs at an angle and do circles with your legs and switch up the rotation. i just try to do as many as i can think of
