6 pack going, hear some fighters say they use a 25 lb weight and do like 2000 crunches and/or situps. I been doing about 6 to 8 hundred a day, I gotten my abs tighters but not quite cut as it should be. Also I guess my diet has to change, any more suggestions?

yeah its your diet, that matters a lot you have to get rid of that little layer of fat thats keeping you from seeing it. so quit eating fast food, drinking soda or anything that you may think has too much fat because thats just setting you back

Thats ridiculout if they do 2000 crunches and more they are not training properly. I do 2 sets of decline situps with a medicine ball, 2 sets of 50 reps side crunches, reverse crunches and planks. Its all about diet.

Mike Tyson did 2000 back in the day. When you work out 3 times a day and you start each workout and end each workout with situps its only like 300 a time so (for a pro) its not that hard.

But if you do your situps and then go to Mcdonalds, you might as well not do them.

Same here, I can't stand that garbage they serve at any greasy fast food resturant.... The only exception I'll make is steak n' shake. Mostly, cause they're food just rocks. It's a good, "I'm hangning out with friends and I don't care about my diet riiiiiight now." kinda food. Other than that, no fast food for me.... Now where's my Foreman grill?

if ur doing 2000 crunches a day then ur not doing them properly (or u have an immensely light upper body).
To gain good definition in ur ab muscles, u should be aiming for sets of 25 or less, sets of 800,000 DO NOT improve definition, they improve endurance. Ever seen a marathon runner with massive, thick well defined legs? no, because they train for ENDURANCE, definition comes with strength and power. Aim for sets of 25 crunches whilst holding a light dumbell to ur upper chest, you should perform elevated leg raises, side crunches etc to gain use of all the stomach muscles.

Eating right should be a given for any sportsman, so im not going to mention it, but if its a problem for you, fix it!

Always couple ab work with dorsal raises or other lower back exercises to prevent imbalances

look at pro wrestlers stomachs, their very strong but they stick out like a little beer belly. thats what you get from tons of reps, its very strong but not the defined ripped look everyone wants.

Yea, to get the abs visible low body fat is almost a must.

Your second best tool for getting nice visible abs, in my opinion, is weighted situps (on the floor or decline bench) and weighted russian twists, with a rep range no higher than 15 (so use a heavy enough weight so the 15th rep is hell).

You only see your abs when your body fat percentage is 10-12%. Otherwise, you can do 10 000 sit ups all you want but if you can't get your body fat percentage down, you'll never see your abs.
