    Best plan for obtaining abs?

    I am not fat, nor eve chubby, but I am not slim enough for my abs to show. If I had to guess I would guess around 13-15%. I am 6'0 at 185 right now.

    What is the best thing I can do to bring my BF% down? I am currently doing 1hr cardio each day - 30mins elyptical and 30mins bike, along with 1hr weight lifting.

    In my 8th week of Test E and second week of Winstrol (First cycle)

    We can all repeate it for you a bunch of times:

    The answer to your question is: frequent cardio and a clean diet.

    BTW...don't try to cut and bulk at the same time. Either cut or bulk.

    My diet is actually the sticky cutting diet.

    I currently do 1hr cardio (just started) - 30mins bike and 30mins elyptical

    I do not want to gain any more weight, just maintain current weight and cut BF

    I guess I am after more of what type of cardio and type of ab workouts I should do to achieve abs.

    I work the sht out of my abs.

    Abs are the most important thing to train. They bring your whole physique together.

    You will look 100 times better if you have a sixpack.


    you have to work them out harder on every work out. Not like most other muscle groups where you maybe increase intensity and resistence on every third or fourth.

    Every workout has to be harder than the last.
    That is what works for me.

    Before my spinal surgery, I used to be able to hang upside down and do curl ups holding 2x45lb plates.

    You could break a baseball bat on my abs and I would laugh at you.
    Not to mention strong abs give you good posture and that makes you look even stronger.

    There are hundreds of good ab workouts,
    Just remember to breath right (exhale when you go up inhale when you go down)
    squeaze you abs tight as you can the whole time, I mean squeaz them tight.
    Control your movement, and increase resistance and intensity on every workout.
    I think doing abs 3-4 days a week is good.
    If I do them less than 3 I feel like they get weaker and I loose progress.

    But everyone is different on how long it takes to heal. So do what you think is good for you but follow the rest of my advice.

    I know it may sounds weird but I lost most of my bodyfat by overtraining myselft
    (from bad advises for my goal, of somes that I followed) 6 days on, 1 Off. 2 days split. no cardio, no mass gain. result: no mass gain- body fat lost
    simply crazy..... but it work..

    anywya I think you better go with a good diet a cardio workout..

    mine are just fine and i train them like every other muscle... hit them hard hit them right form is most important w/ adaquate rest... i mean muscle is muscle Train it Rest it and it will grow.. you also need to concentrate on the transverse to pull it in otherwise you will get a massive buddah belly.

    I like cardio every day in the morning when cutting. I'm doing that and sprints on non-lifting days. I just finally said screw it, I might lose some muscle, so be it. Size without abs isn't satisfying any more. This is a natural cut before a cycle this summer.
