If you're going to flex the spine in training, you better damn well dynamically stabilize it under total control. Most people aren't ready for an advanced ab va...riation like the reverse crunch because they simply don't know what it is to stabilize the shoulders, core, and hips together as a functional and synergistic unit.

But for all you stud athletes out there who have mastered the proper brace at the core and stabilizing musculature, your next progression is dynamic stability. This variation builds loads of tension and activates multiple layers of the abdominal for a serious training effect.

Use your hands gripping the bench overhead to stabilize the shoulder complex and thoracic spine and a foam roller pinned between your lower leg and hamstrings to lock in a neutral-ish position at the pelvis to avoid excessive fulcruming flexion and extension. And finally, the slower you move and harder you contract, the tougher this movement gets. Program in pristine sets of 8-12 reps once got twice a week if you've earned the right to advance your ab training beyond isometrics.

What do we know about Central Nervous System fatigue?

The research shows that low intensity, high duration exercise causes far more central fatigue than short, high intensity exercise.

The research does not show any relation between the amount of musculature involved in an exercise and the amount of CNS fatigue it induces.

...

CNS fatigue is largely acute. It normally doesn’t take days for the CNS to recover. The CNS can recover within minutes.

"High tension is a signal to the body to hold onto muscle when you are in a deficit. This can be done with heavy weights or by purposely contracting the muscles hard during an exercise."

When you reduce calories for fat loss, tension-focused resistance training is better for preserving muscle than high rep training. Here's a sample routine.

“Do you have stubborn lats that refuse to grow?” Well, yes I do. I might try the rotating lat pulldown.

I love Olympic weightlifting. It's challenging, it's humbling, it's complex. But it's not for everyone. More likely than not, it's a bad way to get fit.

And one other thing, don't do jumping drills if you are overweight.

These exercises and training methods have their place, but they're stupid choices for most gym goers. Here's why.
