Abs

I currently train my Abs 3 times a week - after my normal training session

I do 3 sets of crunches on the machine, and 3 sets of leg raises

My question is, how many reps do I want to be looking at. Do I want a heavier weight and less reps, or more reps with less weight? I currently try to do 30 for each set

    Currently I do no direct ab work at all. If you train them hard, don't rely on a lifting belt too much and utilise exercises that require work from your core then you shouldn't need to do them more than once a week. Personally, when I do do them, I prefere lower reps, high reps I find tedious

    I try a do a plank exercise after every session. I feel sure it is paying dividends. Also do decline sit ups
