  • Best Ab Exercise for Stregthening

    I am leaving this kind of vague on purpose. And this doesn't HAVE TO be about Ab exercises, so no poll. But I want peoples opinions.

    My lower back is fucked up and the more I can strengthen my abs or core, the better my back feels.

    Go.

    Definetly cable crunches. Just focus on keeping constant tension on your abdominals rather that using your back to move the weight. Go heavy for 8-10 controlled reps. These have helped my deadlift to an extent.

              Posterior chain work and placing emphasis on training the transverse abdominus (TVA).

                  Depends on why your back hurts. I many cases, sit-ups and leg raises are a really bad choice, some cases they are the only choice...

                  Get a doc to help you figure out WHY your back hurts, go from there.

                    Front squats with barbell, renegade dumbbell rows and mountain climbers on floor are great exercises for abs. Besides workout do focus on your diet plans and watch what you eat. Admin, very informative abs strengthening slide show and must be of great help for those who are working on abs muscles.
                    It's also helps with back or did you not read what info the link had to offer?

                      I know why my back hurts. I tore my facet joint on my L5-S1.

                        But I've been squating light for reps of 20 and pulling big for a few months are that seems to have been the biggest help. I didn't do either moves for years becuase the DR said no. But the pain never went away. 4 years later I figured that my low back muscles must have atrophied makin ab work painfully impossible, literally, and causing my core to weaken. I said fuck it and started doing more compound moves and stopped working around the injury and it worked. I still need to work my core though obviously.

                          I would do Bench crunches,(calves on a bench) that way your lower back area is flat on the floor and you can concentrate on your Abs. Lower back training you have lots of exercises in the slide show above posted by the Hot Baby Doll Pro...
