    The reason that your abs don’t need much work is that they are involved in everything else. Virtually every exercise you can think of involves stabilising the torso with abs.

    ABSolutely. Squats are one of the best ab exercises 😉

    Oh, you were serious about the pilates? Man I am always game, so I’ll check it out.

    Yeah I love sqauts. Ur right that does give the abs a good workout.
    I’m only doing 60kg at the moment but it’s a start.

    I also try to do front squats on a smith.

    Try keeping your body aligned while holding out a dumbbell (small load) in front of you (straight arm) and squat then. It is a good ab stabilizer.

    Thats more a db dead lift than a squat though isn’t it? But I guess its more lowering the weight than picking it up so it would be considered a squat. Anyway nice one. FTW

    You hold the dumbbell out in front at all times, shoulder height. Only picking it up and putting it down once you are finished.

    Oh, my bad Dave. I get you know. This actually sounds like a great exercise and it would help the delts too I’m guessing. Sweet as, man.
