I do about 300 sit ups a day and i can see that the abs are growing, they are just not showing.
If you do other exercises (i.e. working out your other body parts) then once a week will do. The key is to blast them though, not simply go through the motions.

Abdominals are muscles that recover quicker than other muscles, so don't take long rests between sets. Hit em hard and fast whilst you're carrying weights as I suggested.

Also, the key is not to do many sit ups but to do sit ups with a lot of resistance because that's what puts on muscle.

Same with something like benching for example. You don't get a big chest by doing sets with countless repetitions. You get it doing sets a low amount of reps with heavy-ass weights that tax you.

I'd say, if you do about 12 sets of about 12-15 reps (mixing in about 3 sets of standard crunches, 3 sets of crunches with your legs raised to work the lower abs in particular (see American Psycho for leg positioning, lol,) and about 3 sets whilst lying on your left and right sides to work your obliques, your abs will be mint.

Oh and **** that junk food off

John, I never imagined you having facial hair, but you're a handsome specimen nonetheless, thanks for posting my very good friend...

By the way, Australia looks awesome. I would really like to venture there someday.. I just hope that my funds, along with the endurance of a 23 hour plane ride will live up to the need........

Cheers friend, and kudo's for the thread and your pics.

Australia has some pretty special scenery for sure, as has your country of course. The huge forrest area's full of huge mountains and flowing crystal rivers just entrance me. Differences in terrain etc from one country to another is fascinating.

It was actually hahaha - thanks. I'm 12kg over my old norm there, got involved with someone ages back and unfortunately dumped the gym. Have since moved on from serious tennis so am woefully out of shape. This thread and all your pics have me motivated to get back out there however. Enjoyed your pic and the others, you are smoooooth as silk my friend.

Kudo's to everyone who has posted up a pic, great work.

Magoo - i think you should PM a mod, this simply has to be a sticky this one.

12 sets of 12-15 reps sounds a bit light though. Someone told me that you know you are doing them well if you can feel a good burn in your abs, and it takes me about 50 or 60 reps to finally feel them. I'll give it a try though.

Oh and i agree about the weights, when i was taking the weigh protein and lifting at the same time, i use to only do about 10-15 reps in 3 sets and my chest was huge on my small body frame.

:EDIT: i forgot that the reps were including weights as well so 10-15 will probably be all i can do. More weight, the harder it is to do the sit up..

I would put up a pic of myself, but I don't know how to. You're not missing out on much.

JohnThomas1, I was expecting a much younger fat guy. I don't know why. Your posts are mature, as is your forum behavior.

I do wonder how many pm's Pacfan84 has received since posting a pic.

Should I ever gain the chance to go, I will target my trip to your area, where my wife and I can meet up with you and your family... I would very much like to meet you, and I'm sure that you would make a better tour guide than anything I can find the world over...........

Your friend always,

Patrick ( Magoo )

By the way, how in the hell can I make this a sticky thread?? Who IS the mod of our territory these days?
