Plank is something you could do that does not involve weights.

Lifting wise, really depends on what you are doing. For most stuff you could do about 8 to 12 reps and do 3 or 4 sets. If you are squatting, dead lifting or doing bench, you may only do 1 to 4. Like I said before, depends weight wise.

indian squats are good for legs... don't think they are hard enough??? do 100 of them... it will burn... also wall sit is good... simply rest your back against the wall with your legs at a 90* angle... sit there for 5 minutes if you can. your quads will burn like never before.

If you want those flat six pack abs, running and lots of it.
Go for a run around the block a few times, most people think that crunches / sit ups are what give you the six pack and abs but they aren't. EVERYONE HAS ABS ALREADY, if you didn't you wouldn't have any stomach muscles and wouldn't be able to sit up let alone stand up and support your own weight- you wouldn't have any center of balance. With that said everyone has a six pack, some people have a layer of fat above / around their pack which makes it invisible to the naked eye which means you have to run, sure crunches and things can help strengthen the abs but in the long run' running and jogging regularly and losing the body fat is what will make abs and packs visible.

There is a guy called Scooby on youtube who also has a forum, he teaches tips and things like these. Feel free to look him up some time.

Edit/ if you want a before and after shot proof I can post one.. three weeks ago I didn't have abs for shit but I began doing about 45 minutes around the local park when I woke up before school (waking up early at like 6) and in the past few days I have really seen a difference and have a four pack (still working on the six, it won't come overnight)

I refute your point. Number one, running isn't necessary at all. I do no cardio whatsoever and have a firm six pack. I stand 5'8, weigh 174 with a 7% body fat.

In theory, yes, we all have an abdomen structure (way to go out on a limb) but some have less muscle than others.

Not everyone has a six pack. That might be the most absurd comment I've come across in this thread. Ever see an ecto, bra? Skinny little fucks with low body fat who have no ab muscle to show. They don't have "A LAYER OF FAT" over their a abs yet still don't have a six pack. You know why? Because they have no muscle.

The abs are stabilizers, you're right about that. Much like any other muscle group, you hit the core the same way. Training approaches shouldn't change when it comes to abdominal training.

Exercises & compound lifting gives you the muscle, diet allows the muscle to show visually.

If everybody had a sixpack then no one would have the needto do crunches or sit-ups.

Found a good arm workout tonight. Was watching the Flex Lewis Gaspari Nutrition workout series on youtube and he does an arm workout called twenty one's. When I was done my arms were on fire, I usually do not get that with my biceps as much as I did with this. You do 21 reps in each set, 3 at each stage of the workout and boy I could feel it after 3 sets. I recommend trying it to anybody out there. Here is the link for video so you can see what to do: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NVJFVDGtv-8

Ronnie Coleman has been preaching about 21's for years. They are nothing new. I do them every now and then. You get a nice pump after those. Lately I've started doing preacher curls with the low pulley. You get continuous tension throughout the entire movement. I get a huge burn from those.

And whoever said running will improve abs, ya right, diet will help more than any form of cardio. It's amazing how little a lot of people know in this thread.

-Flex-, austinrockera and bruteshot74 know what they are talking about. Ignore advice from anyone else.

Yeah, I've done those several times. Gives a really good burn.

Yes, sir. Good to throw in to the routine every once in awhile. I don't do them much anymore but they do stimulate a lot of growth in the muscle fibers through high intensity. I should actually give them a try sometime again. Good shit, glad you're still working your ass off when you have time.

If you want to try something a little harder, do some 'buddy curls' with a partner. Same concept as twenty ones really but a little more difficult.

Directions:

Stand facing workout partner, about arms length away from one another leaving from for the curl motion. Choose a relatively light weight (probably 50% - 65% of 1RM) for bicep curls and bring that weight in between you guys. I do them with an EZ Bar (jagged type of bar) rather than a straight bar but both will suffice.

Partner A will lead it off by doing 10 reps. When he's finished with the 10 reps, he'll pass the bar to Partner B. When the bar is received, Partner B cranks out 1 rep with a really controlled, slow motion (especially the negative).

After the one rep, Partner B gives the rock straight back to Partner A and he's now cranking out 9 tough repetitions.

Partner A Repetitons:
10
9
8
7
6
5
4
3
2
1

Partner B Repetitions:
1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
9
10

The only rest in between your set is your partner's working set time under tension.

Zydrunas Savickas: 2009 World’s Strongest Man
by Randall J. Strossen, Ph.D. | 2009 IronMind

Malta - In a sport that grew out of a TV show designed to entertain people, Zydrunas Savickas is distinguished not just for his overwhelming strength, but also for his quiet manner that is in striking contrast to the stereotype of what suits a man with his talents and in his line of work.

And today Zydrunas Savickas won the World’s Strongest Man contest - the contest that dwarfs all others in strongman. Beyond the glitzy title that now proclaims what he is, many would argue that Zydrunas Savickas also deserves that accolade even if all the letters are lowercase - he’s that strong.

This morning, Zydrunas Savickas won the Car Deadlift for reps, with Mariusz Pudzianowski and Derek Poundstone tying for second, and Brian Shaw and Terry Hollands tying for third. Next, it was the Atlas Stones, the final event of the contest, and this is where the 2009 WSM title would be decided.

Travis Ortmayer and Terry Hollands ripped through the course, with Travis winning the heat and setting the fastest time to that point - a time that would hold up as the best in this event. Next, it was Brian Shaw beating Derek Poundstone, and then the big matchup: Zydrunas Savickas versus Mariusz Pudzianowski. Shaw was guaranteed to be no worse that third overall at this point, but the most likely outcome was that Savickas and Pudzianowski would not be moving aside easily . . . one would win the title and the other would be second.

Zydrunas Savickas, steady as ever, was unstoppable, and even the fleet feet of Mariusz Pudzianowski were unable to match his pace - Savickas won the World’s Strongest Man contest, Pudzianowski was second and Shaw was third.

The coverage of the 2009 World's Strongest Man contest should be spectacular: watch the official World's Strongest Man website and the IronMind News for details on the broadcast schedule.

---------------

I thought a couple people would be interested in this. Sucks that there is so much lag time between when it takes place and went it is actually shown. I want to watch now
