Arrow 2 More Weeks til San Diego... Ab workout suggestions..

Doing cardio 4-5times a week. Leg raises and cable crunches. I hate doing abs but I've seen immediate results over the past 4 weeks.

Any ab workout suggestions would be greatly appreciated,

Thanks!

Honestly, 2 weeks...not to discourage you but there is only so much that can be done in that short of time. It takes a month or so to see any results and abs are one of the hardest areas to see definition. You need to get in the 12% body fat range to see definition.

For sure man, I've started over a month ago and they're looking better every week.

More specifically, I was asking about what exercises made the largest impact on the mid section. For example, once i uped the weight on the cable crunches and to almost unbearable weight, i saw a massive change.

My parents live in Del Mar and I'm at the beach almost everyday.

Last month they banned alchy from Pacific Beach to La Jolla. So I heard.

In two weeks, it's not about building muscle in your abdomen, but about tweaking your diet to accentuate what you've already built. How long will you be on the beach?

It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing

5-6hrs a day. Its look pretty good, but not nearly where i wanted it to be. Yet, this is the first time I ever tried to get abs, so i guess its not a complete failure...

The best way to get abs: Eat CLEAN.
