TK like what? \
V-ups, hanging leg raises
Weighted planks and overhead squats are the bulk of my specific ab-work.
Once a week I do 4 sets of 15 of incline crunches, leg raises, and bicycle crunches, but that's it.
2 more months until me and my gym bros 1 year anniversary. I am so excite.
If you can do planche or levers, those are about as hardcore ab work as you can find. Pretty much the only two that I do are dragon flags and roll-outs, which I usually do after lifting sessions. Crunches and sit-ups are pointless, especially doing 100s of them. Abs are like any other muscle... they respond to increased loading, and like any other muscle doing super high volume is silly. If you can do more than 10 reps, you're probably not creating enough stress.
I assume that a weighted plank is like doing a regular one but with some kind of weight lying on your back?
Yes. Easiest to actually set up if you have a belt you can actually put through the loops of a plate.
Plate would touch the floor though unless you had a hole in the floor for the weight to fall into.
wrong kind of belt.
Oh! Never thought of doing that!
I usually just lie prone on the floor, then lift the plate over my head and place it on my back. It's a bit of a balancing game...sometimes it takes a couple tries if I'm doing multiple plates.
What kind of belt are you talking about? Am confused.
I'm assuming a powerlifting belt. It would require your gym have plates with holes for handles, though.
Belt would need to be pretty big on you to fit a plate under it and get it around you.
Ah maybe. Wouldn't know...never use one lol.
No deadlifts aren't enough. If you have a posture problem you nfortunately may need to do dumb looked down upon core shit
