    Lean bulking...do I need ab exercises?

    I skipped my ab exercise because I got so bored. I don’t feel anything unless I go for 15-20 reps. And I get bored by the time I reach that number.

    I do sit-ups while holding a 6lbs bag.

    I want to know if I can just stop doing abs. I do:
    squats: 245lbs 3 x 5
    Front squats: 195 3 x 8
    Romanian deadlift: 175 3 x 8

    I weigh 145. I don’t feel my abs while doing these compound lifts either. I mainly feel it in my glutes, quads/hamstrings. Never abs.

    What do you recommend me do?

    If you don't feel you get a core workout at all from your regular workout, you should prob do at least one ab exercise.

    Maybe try a more challenging exercise, like weighted hanging leg raises or cable crunches.

    Or get a bag that weighs more than 6 lbs.
