    I want to exercise and develop abs at home.....without going to the gym. I got some light loads(10kg) and a rod. Any thoughts. Who has managed this before?

    Light loads and a rod? Sounds promising.

    I have pretty nice abs and have done it completely at home.

    Compound Lifts
    L-sit
    Leg Raises hanging from a bar
    Also, eat whole foods.

    abs are mostly a function of being skinny. just do 500 sit ups a day and they underlying structure will be there, the rest is just keeping low body fat.

    Pull ups, chin ups.

    Best of luck - have fun.

    You people are just sweet and generous with advice. Thnx. I have to make it.

    The exercises have also helped me to stay away from wanking in a way that I do not understand. So far so good on both ends..

    It's completely impossible. That's why we never see statues of guys with abs during the early ages...they just didn't have gyms.

    All you need is a floor to do crunches on and a good diet to keep you lean enough to see them.

    i found this video while checking out l-sit stuff. it looks like some pretty intense combos but some of it looks fun. i'm sure some of them will hit the abs nice too icon_smile.gif

    I've tried a lot of different exercises for abs… The best i've found are

    High bar with AbOriginals doing single leg raises … action hero pose plus side raises for obliques.

    High bar inversion boots doing inverted squats

    Everybody is right you gotta keep lean to show them well.

    Didn't read the thread, but abs are 90% created in the kitchen anyway. if you just want a nice set of abs and nothing else, joining a gym is a waste of money.

    Dont forget planks!!! Great exercise especially if you can add weight. Plus there are good variations of it to target different parts of your abs.
