I'm looking for a solid ab program I can do twice a week, on my off days. Can you guys help me out?

    remember your abs get hit in squats and deads a fair bit.
    i personally do a bit of a circuit. mix it up a bit. do some weighted leg raises, raised leg cruches-nice and slow, twist crunches, hanging leg raises, lateral static holds. - not all in one session! just mix up a couple of exercises and usuallu do 30secs on, 20 secs off.

    on the other hand! i sometimes just do slow steady weighted crunches with my legs raised. think this is better for strength and size.

    what does everyone else do?

    Don't bother with crunches, in the gym and in real life situations the abs work in conjunction with the hips. Hence you should train them that way. Sit-ups, leg raises, side bends, plank/vacuums. That's all you need.



    Hi mate. Do you or have you ever done the Janda sit up?

    Yeh I've done them, I see no benefit for myself as whenever I need to use my abs (ie in deadlifting or squatting) it's always in conjunction with the hips, so trying to take the hips out of the movement is pointless.



    Thanks, I forgot to ask when you do a standard sit up is it ok to pin your feet under something to prevent them going up when you come up in the movement?

    If it is ok should you pin them flat legged or bent legged?

    Thanks.

    Your feet shouldntcomeup unless your hip flexors are alot stronger than your abs, \learn not to hook your feet under anything if you are concerned with working your abs as hard as possible
