Title: I hate "working abs"
Post by: Hulkotron on June 10, 2022, 05:34:33 AM
Anyone else?

I think it’s because I always do it at the end of my workout so I’m low-energy and just want to leave.

It’s also just a boring/uninteresting muscle group to exercise.

I feel exactly same mate so never bother to train them or calves

I believe it's largely unnecessary if you're squatting and deadlifting.

Do some one arm farmers carries or something during conditioning and you're fine.

Try thinking "playing abs" instead of "working abs".

Not sure I follow brother but that sounds a bit homoerotic.

I used to do lots of sprints which I think are among the best ab-workers, but one of my hips is all fucked up now and sprinting all-out is pretty much off the table.

Yes.

I am still very fast, strong, and brave so abs are fine.

Between the two of you you'd be lucky to weight 300lbs.


...You damn well better have abs!

"Abs" or as they are traditionally called on the Y board....cum catchers.

Seems pretty fitting. Your threads have been like a gay pride parade lately.

I have a conceptually related theory here on why most people’s calves suck (not saying your calves suck mighty Henda, this is just a general thought). 

Most people do one or two worthless pump-sets at the end of a leg workout and complain their calves won’t “grow”.  If you trained your chest or your quads like that, they’d probably suck too.  Abs I think get some good indirect stimulus from things like deadlifts and squats but not so for calves.

Genetics also play a big part. I've probably done less then five CALF exercises my whole life and mine are bigger and more defined then most including muscle heads that train them once a week.
I always wondered if my younger years played a lot into that, I played sports my whole life. myself and the kids in the neighborhood were always riding bikes, and I ran everywhere I went. Going to a friends house and I was running there, going to the store and I was running there, school bus and back and I was running, fucking with my older brother and his friends and running from a ass kicking, throwing snowballs at the passing cars and if they stopped I was running.

Generally, I never train abs specifically.

Occasionally, I do ab wheel rollouts for awhile.

Maybe I'll start doing them again as they are good.

I don't remember the origin of the Ugandan Sailor Era on getbig.

Was there a particular poster at the core of this?

It was definitely a Alpha board thing.


...I remember a poster trying to tell us Uganda had no shores ::)  That's like saying Dubai is not in India!
