I've never used an ab lounge but it looks decent, when you're doing it do you feel the muscle working?? Im sure you do. thats really all you need to do. As Corey said you dont need to do 1 billion of them do 3 sets of 15-25 but do them slowly and controlled.
Now for the bad news... Everyone has abs they are just covered by chub. Getting a 6 pack comes down to 1 thing. losing enough fat to get them to show through.
I have a pretty decent stomach most of the time and you now how many ab sets I've done this year? Probably less than 10. I just dont do them. They get some work when I do tricep ext and when I do heavy legs they are always working a little. I dont have HUGE abs but who wants huge abs? You want a nice trim stomach with the 6 pack fully visible, maybe a vein or two for the freak factor. Doing too much mid section work (unless you are a worlds strongest man competitor) isn't going to make you happy. Abs and especially Obliques will grow.. They can get pretty big and all you'll be left with is a big thick waist.
Use your ab lounge, cut out as much dairy, white flour and sugar as you can, Hit the gym as hard as you can and do cardio a few times a week.
Now for the good part. Female pattern fat storage (hips, butt, thighs) lets your six pack come out quicker as the stomach isn't the preferred area of fat storage. Thats why you see some girls witn a nice big booty and a sick back. WIth guys the stomach is the 2nd to last place for fat to come off. The last is the lower back (handles).
One ancient method that a lot of bodybuilders use is to get a sweat wrap. Its basically neoprene that you wrap around your stomach while you workout and it makes your middle section SWEAT big time. It will trim your stomach down a little for about half a day. I start using it 4 weeks out from a show and I do notice a little difference right after I workout.
I have to disagree with your methods. 1200 reps is going to build up so many toxins within the muscle you will be working backward with ab development. 1200 reps though is a long workout and will burn some calories and increase your metabolism but you are just killing the abs.. not productive. You are basically doing a cardio workout with your abdominal muscles which weren't designed for that.
Abdominals are there so that you can bend and twist the middle section but still stiffen it up when you need rigidity. They are made for lots of little bity contractions (sitting down, turning looking up, just supporting the upper body during normal movement) and the occasional big strain (picking something heavy up) They are hardly designed for thousands of substantial contractions like the leg muscles are. Calves may be able to handle 1200 reps.. I"ve done 1000 set workouts on a couple occasions but my calves felt injured after that.
Shimmy you would be MUCH better off doing 100 reps of hard abs, 50 reps hanging leg raises, 50 reps crunches. Then doing 30 mins of walking on a treadmill.
Hope this helps everyone.
