    I usually workout one day chest, one day back, one day legs, and I do cardio every day. I never seem to get around to doing ab work, because I am a little embarassed because I am a pretty fat guy. Will doing stomach work help me any in losing weight, or should I just stick to my routine. Im 6'0 280 lbs.:wtc:

    It's not gonna help you lose weight but it will help to strengthen your core, which is always a good thing

    its not going to help you lose weight. your abs are used to stabilize your body for most other compound lifts, so it'll be fine. once you lose most of the fat, start concentrating on abs more.

    i did a 8 minute abs video I downloaded from online. Man my stomach was so weak after those 8 minutes. I guess I'll do this video every day at home before I go workout.

    im a fat guy w/ a belly and i still do stomach work outs at the gym, rarely though (once every other week).

    i add them in with my lower body work outs or my back workouts.

    after doing the ab work yesterday I felt like my stomach was engaging more when I was lifting weights as well as cardio. Feels like their kinda sore, Im keep up doing this video.

    unless your core is really weak i'd skip abs all together and focus more on your lifting
