Abs Routine Needed (Fast Definition Needed!)

Hi Guys,

I was critiquing myself in the mirror. I figured out what I need to really make myself over. Ripped Abs. I would like that "superhero/spiderman" look. Does anyone have any suggestions as far as exercises, sets, reps and resistance?

Thanks,

    A spot of running, maybe some cross trainer or bike.
    For resistance...resist the mars bars!

    I think I'm right in saying that if you want your muscles to be visible, you need to make them big, at least to start off with.

    Just like any muscle for hypertrophy, it needs to be trained in sets of 4x6 - 4x8. I always found weights plates on my chest doing sit ups worked a treat for me - I rocketed, to the point that I cannot fit any more than 30 KG on my chest, so now I hold a rope attatchment whilst on my knees and and pull down, putting my head between them, like this.

    Thanks for the help guys. I'm about to start running to help shed off that very thin layer of fat from my belly. I really want to get my abs ripped but I'm worried about losing weight/muscle mass. You see, I'm a hardgainer and I weigh 152 lbs. I'm mostly muscle but I don't want to lose any weight. I'm shooting to get my weight up to 165 lbs. I guess I just need to eat more tuna and drink more weight gain shakes!

    Thanks guy!

    Does anyone else have any more suggestions?

    1. You are not a hardgainer. You just don't eat enough.
    2. Eat less crap and more good foods (meat and veg & fruit) and you shoudl be able to lose fat and maintain your muscle mass.
    3. You can't lose fat AND gain significant amounts of muscle mass at the same time without tren. Period. They require different states in the body (kcal deficit and excess respectively), you obviously can't be in deficit and excess at the same time, so it makes sense to cycle your bulking/cutting in blocks of several weeks/months, as most big, ripped people will confirm.
    4. @ 150-160lbs you are an etco, (or you're 4'9'') as such you will find it suprising how much you can eat without putting on too much fat. In addition, the bigger you are, the more you can get fat an still look good.

    This is a bit restrictive! I'd say more like 1-6 sets of 5-12 reps.

    Very good ab exercise. I do the same thing standing using the lat machine.
