Ab and Obs

Hey all...looking at mixing up abs and obs to cut and define more. I am playing with different work outs..but thought maybe you all could throw in a few pieces of wisdom! Gotta say there is a lot of crap out there for good ab work outs..coming from peeps who sit behind a desk and write up stuff in mags and online...

So..looking to you all with ton's of knowledge to help a girl out!

Thank you..you all rock!

I personally use supersets

I personally use supersets with abs, sometimes giant sets hitting all the angles in one fell swoop. E.g. going from side cruch, to weighted inclines, to v crunch or some variation of leg lifts, take a short break and do it again till it burns. But, really, like SF said, time and consistency is key.

Thanks to both of you for the

Thanks to both of you for the info. I have read no weights can be better than with weights but I have been doing no weights and with weights till the burn is incredible. I do a ton of burn outs as well on crunches..will go for an entire song as my goal for finish..no fail.

Abdominals

The secret to building an outstanding midsection is learning how to optimally contract the abs. Contracting the abdominals requires an absence of air in the diaphragm. Then shorten the distance between the sternum and the hips. Once in position, the best way to think of this contraction is to try to hug your spine with your abdominals. You can do this sitting down for the best results.

I personally reached a new level in growth and development in my entire core when I incorporated sledgehammer training. In my personal observations women can benefit from this style of training greater than men because of the new level of stress it provides the body which allows for a greater range of adaptive development as compared to males.

Look at Brooke Ence. ;)

Higher risk of injury doing it that way.
