I'm presently on a bulk and doing a full body HST routine Monday, Wednesday and Friday, which consists of essentially all compound exercises. I don't however do any specific Core exercises and I'm thinking of putting together a "small" core routine for Tuesday and Thursday mornings. After reading about Stomach Vacuums the thought of an exercise that could potentially "suck my gut in" while I bulk plus add core strength for squats etc is very appealing!
But I'm still trying to properly figure out how to set up a routine with them... I've got the following from the site here (http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/ms-fit5.htm) outlining how to do them and a routine.
Week * *Exercise * *Seconds * *Sets
1 * * * Vacuum * * *20 * * * * *3
2 * * * Vacuum * * *40 * * * * *3
3 * * * Vacuum * * *60 * * * * *3
My question is:
How do the reps work? Is it meant that you only do one rep per set or whats the general take on it? Suppose for the 60sec ones I could picture one rep per set but for the others it just seems like far too little to be of benefit...
