    I eat a bunch of bread, abs go away. Stick to meat and veg and whole food carbs and abs miraculously return.

    I don't disagree that some targeted training is worthwhile but the majority of it is in the kitchen.

    I really like to warm up on the treddie. Only started the gym over the past 3 months and losing the beer belly pretty quickly.
    It took me about 20 mins to do 1km when I started and now down to 10 mins.

    At the moment I'm doing 30 min walk as soon as I wake up everyday. Somedays if I have time before work. 20 mins jump rope and probably 5 mins star jumps. Other times 30 mins of jump rope when i get home and than do all the ab or weight sets.

    That's awesome mate. Mine is definetly a beer belly. Cut most of the beers out but it's still lurking :/

    Diet pretty much the sole issue here without knowing anything.

    Ab muscles are like any other muscles and can benefit from targetted training, sure.

    6-12 sets of true honest work per week will do the trick. Being able to do 4 million reps and sets means its not hard enough IMO. Though your muscle endurance in that area should be exellent by now!

    Also, you say lifting weights. What we talking about here bud?
    You doing heavy compound movements? Squats/deadlifts/heavy pressing etc have done more for my abs than any directed core work IMO. Sure, i cant see em at the moment but at 20-21% holiday season fabulous i can still flex em to visible pretty easily haha. Built by heavy work, not by 8753 direct sets per week.

    Definately train em. But training them for hours per week isnt needed.

    Diet I feel is pretty good. Happy for feedback but

    Breakfast-Weetbix with yogurt and fruit
    Snacks during the day- Almonds/cucummber slices
    Lunch- Two wraps with just spinach/ carrot
    Dinner- Grilled chicken, frozen chips(I know but I'd die without them) vegetables
    Night snacks- A row of chocolate
    After workout- Boiled egg and protein shake

    At the moment now that X-mas and NYE is done I'll probably only have a 6 pack of beer every three weeks

    Thanks everyone for your replies. Greatly appreciated

    I'll take some current photos and might work to make my diet a bit tighter getting rid of chocolate and chips. I'll cut back on the ab days and replace with more cardio. Hopefully this will just strip it down and than I can start trying to get it to form.

    Will be back with an update soon

    That's a shitload more cardio than I do lol. Yep them beers hey? I still drink some brews I make myself. Thing is mate, I was skinny AF all my life and could eat absolutely anything without putting on weight. Now at 49 things have definitely changed! Not sure of your age but I found that the belly stayed whilst there were anything carbs in foil packs like chips and such regardless of the marketing slogans in the pantry. Got rid of that shite. Frozen carbs like chips too mainly because of the crap oils they pre-cook them in. Not hard to bake some hand sliced jobbies. I don't eat gluten but not by choice and dairy too. I've seen benefits from my Mrs. dropping those out too. I mainly eat veg/salad,eggs,lots of fish and skinned chicken and added more fruit esp. citrus and bananas (switch chocolate out for strawberries)
    Using Tapatalk so trying to remember what else you said...ummm. Yeah thanks for the congrats! I put half back on over the break due to a bloody umbilical hernia ffs! I guess at least we aint on fire out here (yet) so ab's aren't really an issue. I hope you all are safe

    Edit: Wanted to add a link (newbie can't yet) mainly because I found it when I needed it after all the Marvel,D.C and other killer flix 'n shows. Search YouTube for "Actors give advice on diet and exercise" The 24 min one should suffice.
