Ab workout question
As of right now, my abs are pretty good, I've achieved six-pack status and working on gaining more. However; I still feel the need to get stronger. Im looking for FUNCTION over form.
As of right now, my ab workout is as follows:
Six sets of 12 sit-ups with a big blue bouncy ball under you legs. Your butt and back is completely suspended in the air. Your feet are secured by two 95 lb dumbells. This might not sound to hard, but they are KILLER!
6 Sets of 12 leg lifts on a flat bench with legs and but completely off bench with a 95lb dumbbell on the bench to keep it steady.
6 sets of 12 Ab pull-downs with 150lbs.
3 sets of 10 leg raises on a dip stand thing with a twenty lb dumbbell help in my feet.
Then this is a workout that I don't know the name for:
you lie down on decline bench at around 75 degrees. Then someone pushes on your abs with their fist and you try to reach as high as possible. I do 5 sets of 20 for these.
For some reason even after all these workouts, my abs aren't to sore the next day. Immediately after the workout, they're to sour to really move though. Am I not doing enough, do to much, or not enough reps? Should less sets of more reps? Is there anything else I should add to my workouts? I'm quite a noobie at lifting and I need your guidance.
Also, I forgot to mention that I cannot do anything incolving a medicine ball because I have a stretched ligament in my left thumb, doctor says no balls or thumb extensive weight training.
My goal: be able to do flagpoles.
edit: Forgot 1 important detail
I do this exercise three times a week, Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday.
