    So I have a question for you guys:
    What do you do to work out your abdominal muscles? I have just recently started working out, and I was curious what you guys do for your abs?
    Also, do you guys have any links to help demonstrate the exercises you do for this?
    Thanks.

    my lower back has gotten really strong from deadlifts and squats but I feel like my abs are weak, so lately I've been doing supersets of ab exercises twice per week.


    Usually hanging leg raises supersetted with ground-based ab movements (v-ups, toe touches, etc)

    the only direct thing I do is weighted decline situps twice a week but they also get worked with deads, squats, bb rows, etc
