Lawnmower pulls are great. But I never go heavy on them.
I consider the following ranges with their respective titles:

1-2 reps___maxing
3-5 reps___going heavy
6-10 reps__low rep range
10 + reps__high rep range

Yea that make sense. I usually start with 10 reps and try to get 3 sets of 10. If I'm going heavy and can't manage that, I'll try 8, 6, 4...

Good method. I basically do the same on most things. I go by how my muscles feel, not about the number of reps. Sometimes I get to 15-20, other times I get 1 or 2.

I'll try to get the most out of every set. To me it's all about mental motivation. If my muscles are tired and I think I can only 2 reps out, I'll only get 2 reps. But if I think "My muscles are tired but I can do this. I need to knock out as many as possible." I might do 3-4 or even just 2. But I finish feeling motivated for the next time.

After breaking my diet on spring break and eating crap/drinking a lot I had gained back 3 pounds and weighed in at 268.

As of this morning, I'm at 264! The diet works!!

I found a bunch of different calculators online. Low was 17%. High was 23%.

I'll take the average and say somewhere around 20% BF

That's not bad at all for your size.

And unfortunately you can't burn fat in a specific area. Working abs will help but the body pulls fat from wherever.
