    This seems good but I find it a challenge; any good vids for beginners?

    20 minutes on your abs? It's a bit much.

    There's some good exercises in the video for beginners. Try them all: Pick the ones that are challenging but not too challenging (you want to be able to do about 8 to 20 reps a set), and do one or two of those exercises about every 2 to 3 days at the end of your lifting routine. Also, when selecting an exercise, make sure you actually feel your abs working/contracting.

    FYI, if you have a layer of fat covering your abs, they won't show until you've reduced that layer of fat, and that's done through diet and overall physical activity.

    Hmm, I got curious so I went to the guy's website... and his Facebook page... and then did an image search. Know what I found? There doesn't seem to be a single shirtless pic of Sean Vigue anywhere online.

    Would you take fitness advice from a guy who won't show his abs?

    ^^ LOL, good call. He's just a skinny dude, that's all.

    He might have great advice for people looking to slim down. But bodybuilding (which I define as the meticulous control over the details of your body)? No.

    That said, his video has some decent ab exercises for beginners. Some of them, I wouldn't recommend (like, I think planks are overrated, and he's got like a million plank variations). But any of the crunching movements are fine, particularly for those whose abs are not strong enough for crunch movements using resistance. And provided, of course, that you feel your abs contracting. If you don't, drop the exercise, and try one of the other ones.
