    Yeah it is all about body fat and diet.

    As for ab workouts... all you really need is Squat heavy and maybe some planks after to finish them off... also turckish get ups are good.

    I agree it is all about diet and big compound movements like squats which help boost testosterone levels nad boost fat burning.

    Hold a kettlebell above your head with a straight arm. Without bending that arm, lie down on the floor keeping the kb above your head. Now do the same in reverse and stand up. That would be one rep.

    They are NOT fun, but very effective.

    20-40-40? I wish! It's back to the UD2 this week. That means 20-60-20! Can you say "tired" after 72 hours?
    Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.

    In addition to the power lifts, overhead presses are a great addition for core conditioning.

    Also, here is a great TGU tutorial series from Neghar Fonooni ... Turkish Get Up Tutorial (part one) - YouTube

    There's no need to do direct abdominal exercises if your weights routine includes the big compound movements. I find that chins/pullups especially hit my abdominals big time. I always have DOMS in them after I've done these exercises.

    The above article goes through a bunch of different exercises and found out that bodyweight chinups are the one exercise that stimulates your abdominals more than any other. Hanging leg raises are the next closest, but only at about half the rate of a chinup.

    Chaco - you've made great progress and should keep doing what you're doing - it clearly works for you.

    But I wouldn't go as far to spread the message that you NEED carbs to get ripped. Or that adding a shit ton of carbs is even the best method for that. I'm not saying it won't or can't work, but so does <150 carbs (without the adding a 5X5 workout to your pancreas).

    Like I said, though - well done!

    I do no direct ab work and eat below BMR (1380) 5-6days a week and one large refeed on Sunday. Only Sunday is above 150g carbs, the rest the time it's between 50-100g.
