    Default Forming a 6 pack/rate my training

    Hi everybody.

    Just wanted to get some feedback on my training regime. Essentially I'm early thirties had a beer belly but I've done about 6 months of cardio and weights so have stripped it mostly off. I have started working harder on my abs but they only seem to be forming on the upper chest. The lower belly is still quite chubby. Should I stop and just continue cardio until its flat or is this how a 6 pack forms?

    My current training routine is below. I do two sets of every second day. Feel free to add any that you think will help.

    45 x sit ups (incline bench)
    30x V crunches
    40 deadbugs
    40 secs of flutter kicks
    30 x heel touch
    60 x sit up twist
    24x Heels to the sky
    20x Dumbell torture tucks
    Plank 2mins

    What's your current body fat percentage?

    Out of interest what cardio do you do and do you include some each sesh?
    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.

    More importantly, what does your diet look like?

    I think doing that many exercises and total sets for abs like that is a fucking waste of time. But thats just me.

    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.

    How many skinny guys you seem with no abs? Plenty. I think some training is necessary.

    No more than any other muscle group. Certainly not a whole dedicated session. How good are the last few exercises going.to be anyway? Should be well fucked after 2 or 3 if they are hard enough to matter.

    Not a full dedicated session. Thatís just nuts. 3-4 sets, 2-3 times per week.

    I should heed my own advice.
