Building ab muscle is too damn difficult. I don't want to get fat bulking 20-30 lbs.

Building ab muscle is too damn difficult. I don't want to get fat bulking 20-30 lbs. I went from a 260 lard ass to 140 stickman and have been struggling to develop abdominal muscle mass at this weight range for over a year. I put on like 10/15lbs then panic because I hate seeing the number go up and I despise getting fat, then go down to150/140 and am upset I have no muscle or abs.

Muscle building your abs to show is too fricking complicated!!!

    You just explained your own issue, and I think you can figure out what the solution is.

      No I literally cannot. I refuse to have to put on 30lbs and become a fat frick just to then have to roll my way backwards to MAYBE see a 0.1 increase to ab size

        Bulk slowly. 30lbs should take 1, maybe 2 years. That's plenty of time to hit your abs and progressively overload on your ab lifts. If you contonuously puss out every time you see a bit of blubber covering your stumach, you'll spin your wheels eternally. Embrace the bulk, brother.

    Hanging leg lifts neutral.
    Hanging leg lifts alternating sides.
    Planking army crawls.
    Russian twists.

    Do all to failure, 30s-1m between each exercise. Do it daily. Takes minutes. Unfit homosexuals with soft cores are just lazy.

        Don’t overeat. It’s not that hard. For anyone already avoiding seed oils or sugar syrups, eating a proper amount of food is instinctive. That’s the beauty of a bodyweight routine. If you get heavier, it becomes harder. These excuses are gay as frick.

      Solid advice. Bonus points for not omitting obliques. Only thing I’d add is hanging knee raises.

        Knee raises always felt like a weaker leg lift exercise. Seems redundant if I’m already doing leg lifts.

          Not my experience, but ymmv. I do both every workout. It’s a good way to get some extra time hanging in.

    >15lbs
    That's 4-6 months worth of bulking. Less than 4 months and you're rushing it.
    Also 15 lbs shouldn't be noticeable at all when you're wearing clothes. You either have cursed fat genetics and it all goes to your face or you were on the cusp of getting fat when you started bulking.

    I trained my abs religiously at the end of every leg day despite being a skinny fatass bulker, they're now pretty well developed now that I have almost finished my cut thanks to my dedication.
    Ab machine crunches (3x10-12) and hanging leg raises(3 sets till failure) is all I do

      Okay, but how do you eat? what's your weight/height?

      do you bulk or do you cut? the nutrition is the part that drives me insane, I never know what to do. I can lose weight easy, I can gain weight easy, I don't notice ANY ab gains doing either..

      can you show a pic without flexing abs at all

        And what the frick would that accomplish other than cement your moronic body dysmorphia? Most muscle becomes less visible without a pump and flex, all those body fat charts you see are with a pump, flex and ideal lighting.

      he's 140 lbs lol he's an actual skeleton

      he just keeps getting fat without building any muscle then cutting back down, which isn't going to accomplish anything

        how is that even possible? how do you put on weight while lifting and not build muscle? explain science defying anon

          my guess is he's not trying hard enough in the gym and progressively overloading

          he's also probably not giving himself enough time to gain muscle because he's trying to speedrun "abs"

          by his own admission he sits at 140 as a skeleton, rapidly gains 15-20 pounds, doesn't like how he looks, then just immediately cuts back down again

          he's not committed to the process

            This seems 100% reasonable reaction to anyone looking at the mirror and not seeing results after gaining 20 lbs and just becoming fat

              Reasonable in a sort of reactionary, knee-jerk way, sure, but it's not going to get him where he wants to go

              What he should be doing is eating a set amount above his BMR, gaining up to that point, and then just eating at that amount while continuing to lift, and eventually he'll become leaner at that weight because he's continuing to lift and gain muscle

              the bottom line is this, if there's fat on your body, there's a surplus of energy which can be used to gain muscle

              if you're skeleton thin and you don't have any muscle, gaining weight and then cutting it back down because you don't like the way you look for a small window of time will do nothing for you

    I have an ab day. Golden era guys used to do a crazy number of reps for abs. So did old school boxers like Muhammad Ali. I had to fix anterior pelvic tilt so I included a lot of core fixing movements like bird digs and dead bugs to fix it. It took a fricking LONG time but I finally have good abs. Some guys already have good lumbar posture and are lean and don’t need that much ab work. I did. If you need to do a lot of ab work to have good abs then do it, don’t let the delusional morons with trash physiques say it’s not necessary- it’s actually very important for your health and preventing injury- or the small minority of naturally gifted guys who can have a six pack with a few sets of crunches thrown in at the end of a workout

    i agree OP i have trained abs every session so far and they are so fricking slow to grow and im embarrassed at this point. it's the only true genetic fault I have, everything else grows well or inserts really well.
