    The decision to work my abs at all weighs heavily on my mind. Does that count?

    Bulk up abs defeats the purpose of creating the "illusion". Smaller ab muscles make the whole upper body look wider and fuller. Tone them up and diet down for great abs.

    Re: Who does weight ab exercises?

    Like everyone has said. It's all diet.
    You can do a 1,000 sit ups a day but
    If you have an inch of fat covering them
    You'll never see them.
    I do weighted cable crunches though
    Just to thicken them once I lean out
    And just regular crunches.
    You really don't have to do much for
    Abs because its mostly diet.
    I also do isometrics with my abs
    That's just constantly flexing and tightening
    Them for a few minutes at a time
    Through out the day.
    Keeps that tight look and gives
    You very good AB control once you
    Learn how to do it.

    Re: Who does weight ab exercises?

    Everyone shoul do weighted abs.

    You wanna show off your abs you have to build them.

    Weighted abs is very important in Powerlifting it build strength to aid in the squat, nobody is going to squat a legit 500 plus pound squat with weak abs and for those that squat much heavier will tell you so.

    Standing Cable abs and Decline weighted abs are money.

    You do not need to do a ****ing million reps and sets either just 4 sets of 6 to 12 reps will do once or twice a week.

    People with great abs on stage and people that squat 1000 plus pounds taught me this.

    You ever look at a pic of dudes on stage and see the guys with no ****ing detail on their abs guys on stage with show body fat? These clowns forgot to hit weighted abs and the guys ripped up in the guts hit them good.

    Try and squat heavy weight and stay upright with weak abs lol you'll fold over so fast.

    Weight exercises for abs just make my abs thick and blocky looking. I don't do weighted abs at all. Very minimal ab work at all in fact and I have very deep and conditioned looking abs

    That's true. You need both. But diet first.
    And Ofcourse you need to work them
    Out.
    But my favorite weighted exercise is
    Kneeling cable crunches.
    I kneel, cross and lock my thumbs and
    Rest my forehead on my thums and
    Crunch pulling with 100% AB contraction.
    You'll see a lot of guys doing this Excersise
    Wrong by having one side of the rope
    In each hand and spreading the rope
    To the outside of their knees when
    Crunching. They are using triceps
    And lats instead of isolating their abs
    100%.

    I agree with you Cash. Although I do
    Some weighted AB exercises but I don't
    Go crazy with them. Just enough to thicken
    Them up for the look I want.
    Again though. Genetics plays a role in
    This as well. Some guys may need more
    Weighted AB exercises where other guys
    Can get away with out or not much.
    Me, I don't need much.

    Re: Who does weight ab exercises?

    it's all about diet bro, also genetics play a roll aas well. some people have 6 packs, some have 4 packs. I don't do much weighted ab work aside fromm maybe some weighted cable crunches once in a while. I try to focus on the lower abs a lot s well as obliques.

    Standing cable for sure. Maybe a roller with weighted vest on occasion. Or I just get them airbrushed on...

    Weighted crunches here. Agree re: diet is key for showing them off, but training them helps with other compound lifts IMO.

    Re: Who does weight ab exercises?

    I've done it both ways....training abs and not training them (with the exception of indirect - dead lift etc.). Personally, I prefer the appearance of my abs when I do not do direct work. Genetically, I'm a freak. When I thicken them up by doing direct work they look really bizarre.

    I won't do abs till my body fat is low enough to show them. Diet is the key and then I'll start with abs workouts.

    I've done weighted knee lifts, weighted incline crunches, weighted hyper extensions, weighted cable crunches...all awesome exercises! And, they did make a difference!
