Q: I just started the Size Surge program. I love it and can already see results! I just had a question about abs. In the this program, you have only one day for abdominal work. Is that really enough to get great washboard abs? Can I add some ab training to other days or maybe the off days?
A: You can add some ab work if you like, but keep in mind that your abs are getting a lot of work supporting your torso on all the big exercises you’re doing on Monday and Friday—from presses to upright rows to squats. Notice how Jonathan has washboard abs in this photo as he does dumbbell shrugs, showing that they’re almost always working to some degree…
So your abs even work on more isolated moves. Also, you get lots of core work during the two sets of deadlifts on Wednesday, but that’s also the day you train abs directly.
That said, if it makes you feel better, add a set or two of crunches to the end of Monday’s and/or Friday’s workouts. Remember, however, that ab work alone doesn’t give you washboard abs—you have to have low bodyfat to get those etched cubes of granite, and that takes eating correctly [see the X-treme Lean e-book for more on that].
Till next time, train hard—and smart—for BIG results.
