comment Never skip leg day?
@EricKaufman Agreed about the oly lifters. Stronglifts/SS might be good depending on experience. Since he has no restrictions on upper body size though (which seems to be his concern here), he could try a routine that gets him in the gym more often. 5x5 routines are sort of "prilepen's chart" with their rep schemes, instead of a bodybuilding routine which would get people in the 5x10 range.

It's unfair for everyone to downvote this question without explanation. Please give a reason so the OP can improve his question (or make improvements to his question yourself).

Not sure if you were trying to coin a new exercise term here (kayak + tabata?), if so sorry. :P Roll it back if you like.

Tendinitis maybe? Have you tried taking time off for a couple of weeks and seeing if there was improvement?

comment Tips on having six packs and losing fat and keeping the muscles I have
@DMoore I suppose we're arguing semantics then. I interpreted "abs" as the lay definition in this context ("just want to have abs" means not having much fat on your tummy), rather than "rectus abdominus; how to induce hypertrophy on this muscle". If it were the former, I would argue that many people already have solid "abs" and just want to lose some fat. Losing fat (eating less), in that case, could be exactly what they're looking for. If it were the latter, I would suggest they start with something like my low-rep suggestion. Squatting heavy weight would be a good option too.

comment Tips on having six packs and losing fat and keeping the muscles I have
Yeah but again that's all anecdotes. Soreness isn't an indication of muscle growth. Go run a marathon untrained. You'll be sore but you'll have catabolized all of your muscle. Again please read my answer here about untrained individuals so you don't keep arguing against a point I'm not arguing. Just because you do 500 pushups a day doesn't mean you'll be able to bench press 2x your body weight. You can only get so big and strong from calisthenics.

comment Tips on having six packs and losing fat and keeping the muscles I have
@DMoore I respect your experience and your answers. Just wondering if you could give an explanation of the biological mechanism for body fat spot reduction. I'm not married to the notion that it's impossible, it's just that I don't understand how it's possible. Also: high-rep, high-intensity certainly induces hypertrophy if the stimuli can create enough of an anaerobic state. I don't disagree with you on that. High-rep, high-intensity also burns quite a bit of fat though.
