short but effective abs

Hey, i'm fed up of doing 3 sets 50-100 sit ups every 2 days. I was wondering if theres anything i can do maybe 4 sets on 10 or maybe 3 sets of 15 doing that will have good effect on abs.

Wanna cut abs time down from 20mins to maybe 10mins?

    Why are you doing so much for abs mate?

    Are you trying to get them to show?

    In my opinion, abs are made in the kitchen more than the gym.

    I dont really do any specific ab training other than 20 or so crunches after my deadlift day and again after my leg day. The abs get hammered as they work as stabilisers on lifts like deads and squats etc.

    They are a muscle the same as others so I see no reason why you need to do circa 300 situps every other day mate.

    Maybe do some hanging straight leg raises 12-15 with a d/b between your feet followed by some Incline bench ab work 12-15 and repeat a couple of times.

    I do 4 sets of 5 pause-with-static-hold reps once a week, weighted. I sit on the edge of a raised floor, feet held, weight on chest. I lay back so I'm horizontal (but body still unsupported as I'm sitting on the edge of a raised floor), hold that position for a count of 5 and repeat for 5 reps.

    Doesn't take long at all.

    roman chairs will cane the crap out of your abs - try doin 50 of them!

    warm up with a few crunches first though

    superset with knee-ins or other lower ab work - won't take you long at all!

    Pain is just weakness leaving the body..

    Too True.

    My abs only show when using a specific lean diet, same work out as ever but change the diet, maybe added cardio and im there.
