That does surprise me. In my gym back home there is a russian guy that we call “the dude” and he’s 320 with the solidest looking core I’ve ever seen. I’ve never seen the lad do even weighted core work except deads…and that was crazy to watch.
Actually you’d be surprised how much direct ab work those guys do. It’s likely not the traditional sit-ups for most, but Louie seems to always mention spread eagle sit-ups and a lot of other guys do various weighted abdominal crunches (standing with either a cable or band, roman chairs, etc…).
Usually if abs are a weakness, they will get targeted.[/quote]
