Hi Dr Darden,
Is there any heavier time efficient excercise or routine on abs you would recommend?
I have a hard time finding a good replacement to excercises being performed on the floor (trunk curl/lift, crunches etc). Even alternating series of such excercises takes a lot of time, and leaving me with more left in the tank. I often end up doing too many reps, meaning the set extends into forever. Not very HIT-ish compared to my other routines.
I do use the abs machine a lot, which works well doing slower cadences, but the movement feels a bit unnatural to me. Also doing some variation with the full military sit-up, which of course uses an inappropriate amount of iliopsoas.
I could use some fresh tip on heavier, more demanding absercises or routines (or should I just accept the reality for what it is)?
Unf I don’t have access to a decline bench variation with the legs fixated (whatever that excercise is called).
Thanks in advance!
