After a frustrating 2009 in which he placed second in the heavyweight class of both the USA and the Nationals, Floridian Lee Banks focused on one contest in 2010: the North American.
Not only did he win the heavy class at the N.A., but he also too the overall and thus a pro card. When he first steps on an IFBB Pro League stage this year, there’s one thing you can bank on: Lee Banks will sport one of the best sets of abs in any contest.
Here’s how he does it.
BANKS ON ABS
“I train abs twice weekly in the offseason and three to four times weekly precontest.”
“I like that mid-to-high range for reps. I think 15-25 is the sweet spot for abs.”
“Cable hip/leg raises are kind of unique. I do these while lying on the floor with a harness around my ankles, and it’s attached to a low cable. From legs-straight at the start, I pull my knees nearly to my face, curling my hips up at contractions.”
