Shortcut To Size: Phase 2, Week 8, Day 51

Build your pulling power! Train your back for mile-wide lats, build bigger biceps with taller peaks, and target your core for total-body strength.
Day 51: Back/Biceps/Abs

* Take a strength band and wrap it around a secure base, such as a power rack or machine. The band should be about shoulder height. Stand away to where there is tension on the band. Take a shoulder-width stance with the bands facing to one side across the body. The resistance should be facing directly to the side of the body. Once in place, turn about the waist in a violent but controlled fashion and contract the abs during the turn. Use your elbow as the focal point to complete the turn.

If I did abs everyday would that be considered to much, and take away from my gains?

I do abs everyday, in the morning, just to keep toned; then abs in the gym twice a week (I am focusing on leaning up at the moment)

Does anybody have a link to a video demonstration of the bent knee hip raise on the smith machine? I can't seem to find one anywhere.

Just watch all Jim's videos. He demonstrates them in there as well as the ones he does on the Smith Machine.

The other way is to hold onto a flat bench and put a dumbell or medicine ball between your leg/feet.
