Ask the Trainer: Seeing Ab Progress
Question: Abs - need some exercises to really build them, and not just burn them out. I'm already doing many forms of sit-ups and other ab machines at the max weight - so why am I not seeing progress?
Answer: It sounds like you are already doing everything needed to build your abs! I am curious as to what your body fat percent is. I bet you already have good abs from what you have said - however, you need to be 10% body fat or lower to really start seeing them. Another thing you may be doing is over-training them. If you are doing them every day it is too much. Try taking a day off between workouts and you will notice a new soreness and better pump. Hope this helps!
