Question How Can i get a good sixpack?!?!

If anyone can give me the secret to getting great abs...i'd really appreciate it. Right now i run about 3-4 days a week about 2-3 miles. And do about 200 reps of ab workouts a night. Yet i still cannot really define my abs at all. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Ooh this is an easy one. The only way to see your abs is with a bodyfat of less than 8%. That means a very strict diet. 2-3 mile runs are ok, but for better results you should run windsprints or do the Max-OT Cardio. Just go to the ast-ss website and you'll see it.

Thumbs up

I purchased the Ab-Lounger 4 weeks ago, I do 700 - 900 reps if you can call it that , on the contraption. All bullshit aside , the dam thing is working well. That is every other day, other days, free weights. Feels like it is going to come apart. Not to uncomfortable.

those contraptions are fine for building ab muscles, but they wont burn the fat nessisary to get to 8% so you can see them.

you can get rock hard abs with those things and still be fat.

Yup, only need to train abs like every other muscle group. 1 maybe 2 times per week. I do mine with bi's currently. I just grab on a pull up station and do leg ligts, and do crunches. I will say tho the old school ab rocker roller thing... the purple thing sits on the floor. Its good for when you want to hit abs. It makes sure you dont stress your neck. To do crunches without using your neck, also try staring at the ceiling and put your tongue against the roof of your mouth.
Another good core exercise is to take a small straight bar, but a 10lb plate in the middle, basic ab roller. be careful tho, it will work your abs, but can hurt your lower back

or take a 5 gallon lid, plactic lid, and put it in the floor. get on all 4's, feet on the lid and do a jack. same thing as using a ball, but a little more stable.

but abs wont really be seen until you get to a lower BF%.

Nope. I know it's hard to understand but there is no such thing as spot reduction. Everyone whose new to bodybuilding cherishes this misconception. The reps you do will make your abs grow alittle bigger, but the fat will remain. Sorry. Those pictures probably show what happens when your abs grow a little. :(
