There’s tons of better options that O/H squats for core strength.
-Standing ab pulldowns done 2x a week.
-GM’s for sets of 8
-Hanging leg raises, aiming to get your feet with straight legs to your hands.
When I started to push the ab pulldowns and roll outs hard, my squat SHOT up.
And we’re not talking 135lb to 185lb, I went from doing a hard 400 x5 WITH a belt, to a relatively easy 400 x5 without a belt over the course of a couple of months. Now, about 2 months later, I’m going for 400 x10 with a belt next week.[/quote]
I hate doing ab pulldowns, and tend to skip them, or not push them as hard as I should. I dont know if Im doing goodmornings properly, I have no one there to correct my form.
I’ll try some rollouts, and maybe hanging leg raises aswell. Thanks for the input.
another goal, is to hit my traps. I haven’t found anywhere to put in trap work, since at the end of upperbody days I’m pretty much beat. If I can kill two birds, or even maim them with one stone, thatd be great.
