Ab Vacuum With Heavy Resistance Ab Training


(Los Angeles, CA)

Question: Ab vacuum coupled with heavy resistance ab training... I was wondering if I can do the abs vacuum exercise along with heavy resistance for abs?


The reason I ask is because heavy resistance for abs are suppose to get them thick and bulky while the vacuum is suppose to tighten the abs so I just wanted to know if both can be done together.

Also, for heavy training for abs am I suppose to increase weight on abs every week like the other body parts also, or can I do the same amount of weight as long as the workouts are hard?

Are broomstick twists recommended during a bulking phase or will that make the obliques bigger(which is NOT what I want)?

Yes. Variety is a good thing.

If the workout gets too easy, you can add weight.

They are fine to do during a bulking phase.
