I was wondering how boxer and most figthers get their lower adbomen to be a ****ing brick wall and wide.
Do I have to just do russian twist ( i do 3 set of 20 rep) and 3set of 20 normal situps with weights behind my heads or do i have to do rep of 6-8 like bench press or most other exercise to get them bigger/wider?

Alot of the ab work comes from indirect work that is related to boxing and not really direct ab work. Don't get me wrong we do a **** load of ab work but alot of it has to do with boxing and all the movements and exercises that come along with it that add to our abs.Former US National Boxing Team Member

Do hours of cardio and hit things for hours a day. Then like rocky, hang your feet from the loft in a barn and do hanging situps. Then run up the stairs and raise your hands in the air. As you scream, "Adrienne", flex your abs in and out.oh and gecko that link did not contain answers only the search page - swiftness_02

doing and hour of floor work 5 times a week will give you boxers abs.
endless burpees, crunches, situps, leg raises, oblique twists, as well as painful medicine ball work will help you get decent abs. the aim is to harden the stomach rather than make it look nice.
if you want boxer abs then box, but if you want a quality midsection then your time is better spent working out like a bodybuilderAltius, Citius, Forcius...

You have to hit them with all rep ranges, you need endurance: work the rectus and transverse abdominus in 3 minute intervals, strength: work heavy low rep execises like dragon flags, weighted crunches on a decline board, full contact twists, explosiveness: for the obliques: band work, medicine ball twist throws, rectus abdominus: plyometric medicine ball situp throws (don't know what there called), and medicine ball drops to harden up your midsection against impact.
Most fighting gyms will work the **** out of your midsection in the warm up and the cooldown.
When I was training in Thailand the trainer made me do 500 situps in a row, with my legs flat on the ground, it took 25 minutes non-stop, this was after an 8k run, 30 minutes of pad work, 1 hour of bag work and 25 minutes of clinch sparring. Thailands funConcentration Curl :
