Abdominals

Remember when doing ab exercises that more is not necessarily better. You should train your abs like any other body part. More exercises will not make them magically appear — the only thing that will do that is to get your body fat down below 8%. Also remember that your abs work like an accordion, not like a hinge. So when doing crunches, you should concentrate on crunching together rather than moving your body upwards. This will maximize muscle tension.

The other key in ab work is tension. You must concentrate on contracting your muscles as tight as you can. This will cause them to fatigue faster. It does not matter how many reps you can do; the only thing that matters is how hard you can contract your abdominal muscles. If it takes you 100 crunches before your abs begin to burn, then you are wasting your time. Your abs should be bursting at no more than 20-25 reps. If they are aren't, you need to add weights to your exercise and work on contracting the muscles tightly for each rep.
