  1. Planks, weighted situps/crunches, and either recumbent or hanging leg raises are my go-to abwork. Side planks and side bends holding a plate overhead are nice for variety and to strongly target obliques.

  2. Incorrect, primary function of of the Rectus Abdominis is spinal Rigidity. The Abdominals only provide a maximum of 3 inches of spinal flexion. That's why any movement that has more than 3 inches of movement is not focusing on the Abs. The Excercises you propose here are exteremly difficult for 99% of non pro athetles to do correctly and will simply lead to hip flexor tightness, no matter how many times you say " don't use your legs" you're giving them an exercise were that's almost impossible not to do.

  3. I always considered myself a hard gainer, but the reality was I had always had a lousy diet. As soon as I started following the Agoge diet, I started gaining muscle fast!

  4. Actually, according To NeoFit TV, The Best are Chin-Ups, AB Wheel and Long-Lever Posterior-Tilt Plank, then Arm Extended Crunch on stability ball and Hanging Leg Raises😀

  5. just realized that a deaf person can easily figure what's going on in Jeff's videos with crappy or no subtitles; his "bro" character always has horseshit form
