*I know diet is a big part of this


Thanks for any help!
Eric, you're in my neck of the woods. Do you go to an affiliate or have you ever? Which one? Who have you trained with?

Re: Abdominal strength program

Do you just want a six pack? If so, then never again eat sugar, dairy, or grains. If that doesn't work, then you're genetically screwed so just eat ice cream and work on the guns.

Re: Abdominal strength program

Speaking from personal experience, P90X has an absolutely amazing ab workout. However, you have to work absolutely as hard as you can to do what he tells you. As you have crossfit experience, you should already know what this is like.
Another key deciding factor is of course your diet.
You don't have to completely cut out grains, all fat, all sugurs etc... but you will benefit more from taking in natural products that your body can process correctly. For ex. Eat an apple as opposed to a candy bar, as apples have lots of natural sugars.
I will definitely suggest you stay away from products made with white bleached flour. Try and aim for products that use at least whole wheat, but even better are products with whole grains.
But going back to the exercising aspect, you should be doing as much cardio as you can, to help burn those tiny extra layers of fat that the diet doesn't already get rid of.
There are of course other programs that you can follow, but i know for a fact that Tony Horton's P90X is a great workout program. If you can, do the whole program! But check out the Ab Ripper X. If you work hard, it will truly rip your abs!
Best of luck

I tried the "Ab Ripper X" workout, it made my hip flexors quite sore, but I didn't feel much in my abs. Also it's something like 20 min of pure ab work, thousands of reps, too much IMO.
