    Core Training

    I went back 7 pages and only found one article posted by WG.

    I lift 4 days a week (on B days I do side bends for obliques)
    I do Great Abs about 4-5 times a week (laugh if you will but it is working).

    I'd like to find a good core workout that I could do on my 'off' days. The only caveat right now is that I have no where to do pullups or hanging leg raises or anything which requires a pullup bar. Any websites/books/vids would be greatly appreciated. I went to Border's Books but there are like 1000 books on fitness, 200 of which are core related (caveat: the previous statement may be an exaggeration)

    I found a good core conditioning workout that El Macho posted:
    50 crunches
    30 situps
    10 back hyperextensions

    3x a day.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    I started boxing a few months ago. Prior to that, I had almost never done any traditional "ab" exercises. Yet I was able to easily out-crunch most of the other students in the class when doing ab work at the end. How? Squats and pullups.

    I don't rate crunches, a lot of people put too much emphasis on them, not necessarily anyone in this thread but just in general.

    Compound movements are your friend.

    Front squats and standing overhead presses (specially the later with 5RM load or less) grinds your core in a very, very good way.

    One arm dumbell snatches are a killer too, barbell would be even harder!
