Abs Training

I was wondering if one of the Authors might comment on an appropriate abs training program to support a strength program.

The goal of the program is to (1) build core strength, and (2) have an impressive set of abs to show post-cutting?

Here ya go, read up!

Pilates.
Don’t forget to wear spandex tights.
(try the search function)

Alot of core strength comes naturally when doing heavy compound lifts so that is an obvious priority. My favorite?: Alternating heavy dumbell shoulder presses using enough weight so that you need to lean to the opposite side to maintain balance. Really hits the obliques. I think of David Barrs’ avatar everytime I do them.

And do a search before you ask the authors to write an article for you. It’s been done.

Thanks Kruiser.

Apologies for wasting the time of others - just a beginner and learning the ropes.
