    all that i can see 50 doing is giving you the ability to sit up and lay back down 50 times very easily. muscular endurance.


    whenever i run this by people they stare at me blankly like im from another planet.


    what are your thoughts?

    They're doing the wrong workouts for abs is why. Heavy squats, deadlifts, and such will build big vlocky abs

    well i agree with what you guys are saying but let me approach it a bit different

    your abs can be pounded much harder than the muscles and joints associated with the bench press. example is you can easily overtrain your pecs and shoulders doing a lot of bench pressing which will lead to overuse injuries. you aren't going to injure yourself doing abs unless you are doing them with heavy weights or something
