    The reason you're confused about all this is because you don't know anything about anatomy or what any of the muscles are or what they do or even how muscles function on a basic fundamental level. Watch some basic anatomy videos on youtube and watch some specifically on how the midsection works too. Literally all you need to train all of the muscles in the entire front midsection is to do a crunching motion and a leg raising motion. You can even do an exercise that includes both of them at the same time and work them all out in a single exercise. That's literally it. Anyone else telling you any different is a legitimate fucking moron that is simply parroting what they heard from someone else that also does not know what they are talking about

    >answer: crunching motion + leg raising motion = 1 or 2 exercises, take yer fuckin pick

    the only thing that really helped me increase core strength is consistency, pure volume and not doing it with the whole "sets and reps" thing. core isnt like chest or something that you do 3x5 for strength, core you do 100 situps in a row or something like that

    What's wrong with just doing situps to failure with a plate on your chest?

      Don't do leg raises until you really know how to perform them with your body. Most people train their hips rather than their abs. Start with hollow body

    Friendly reminder that if you do not tuck your tailbone during ab work you will fuck your lower back up. Tilt those hips back.

            think of your hips as a bucket of water, now tuck your butt in and flatten your lower back. if you did it right the bucket is tilted back from where it was and is vertical instead of tipped slightly forward

    I literally only do hanging leg raises, and I only do them if I have spare time at the end of my workout. 5 sets to failure.

    Does it work? Well we will find out in 11 months time when I complete my cut.

    Hanging leg raises and cable crunches are really all you need but do them consistently. Russian twists also help if you have the extra time. Don't eat so much and do cardio.

    one leg raise exercise, and one crunch exercise.

    What I've started doing is using straps to hang, so I can get a really good mind muscle connection to my abs during hanging leg raises, and then after I move over and do kneeling cable crunches.

    This is crunches and elevated planks/side planks.
    I suck at eating though, i'm pretty sure i'm at a near constant calorie deficit.

    Hanging Leg Raises for upper abs, cable/weighted crunches for lower abs, heavy Russian twists for obliques. Train everything in 5-30 rep range, about 10-20 sets per week per exercise. Train with intensity

      I thought it was the reverse? I feel my lower abs burning a lot more during leg raises and my uppers during cable crunches.

        you should feel it in the whole core. if you feel it mainly at the lower abs you are probably using your hip flexors way to much and need to do some easier variation. do deadbugs just to learn how to use your core properly

    I just use the ab machine and do 5x(8-12). Worked up to 145x5x8 and my abs are peeking through my gut. Once I start sprinting after the thaw it's over for my fat.

    I can't do hanging leg raises properly, I always end up swinging too much

    does that mean my core is just weak?
    I can't stop myself from swinging

      possibly, try doing them slow and controlled instead of using momentum. if you cant you should do something easier for a few months

        do these instead if you cant do leg raises. make sure your lower back is held against the floor and dont let it curve when you move your feet

      Start with knee raises. Start from a still dead hang, and hyper extend your back a little before starting the rep for the ab stretch. Then slowly bring your legs up, round your back as you do so. Once you reach the top of your ROM, stop, and slowly let yourself back down into the starting position. I had the same problem and this helps
