    I like to do a mixed super set:

    three-way exercise ball crunches (side, front, side, front, side, front...) x 30 times

    followed immediately by X brunches or bicycle crunches 40 - 50

    followed by leg lifts with a light medicine ball 10 - 15

    repeat 3 x

    My staple ab exercises involve the stability ball, isometrics like planks, and cable exercises like woodchop/reverse chops and variations of that. Not many people do them, most do the cable crunches which I fell NOTHING from.

    Lately I've incorporated some variations on planks by adding in a side to side pelvis drop and slowly dropping my knees (as in a slower and lower mountain climber) as well as plank push ups.

    I also like doing core exercises hanging from the pull up bar, I'll do a bicycle type workout from here, as well as just the normal leg crunch.

    On the BOSU I like doing clocks in which you start in a V and then with a controlled movement bring your legs down in a circle,your upper body should balance out by also going into extension so that you are parallel with the ground at "6 o'clock"

    Finally, our gym purchased an ab wheel which I like to do sets on as well.

    Hope this helps!

    Try GHD sit ups ....

    http://media.crossfit.com/cf-video/cfj-oct-2005/glute-ham-demo.wmv

    Just don't injure your back with BAD form! You usually can't feel the pain until the next day. So, don't attempt 50 GHDs at once ...

    Cheers

    Also check out the abs endoring that workout.

    I'm trying a new one myself plank with your feet elevated on a swiss ball and then doing a sit up, rolling down along the ball. Will try and get material to view.


    ---Think I found it, swiss ball pike, anybody have any thoughts on that one?

    Hanging leg raises are all you need. Do different variations (side to side, twists, straight up, knees only). 2-3 times a week and u should b all set.

    Planks are good for stability and conditioning the abs but wouldn't something my dynamic be needed to expedite muscle development and fat burning?

    Well I do a variation of ab excercises. (crunches, leg lifts, etc..) cardio is the best for fat burning.

    Thought as much, I couldn't consider plank to predominately help towards ripped core, they good for stability and conditioning but ideally a combination of something more 'dynamic' ?

    The best ask exercise: pushing yourself away from the table, when are sugars and sweets available. EVERYone has abs, they are just hiding under the fat. Cut out the sweets and your body fat, and VIOLA... ABS!

    He's already exercising and working his abs. That'll build them up. Patience and proper diet is the only thing that'll make them show.

    i've been using a mock p90x ab routine for the past few weeks. a mock one because i'm too cheap to actually buy p90x so it's based on what i remember seeing people do at the gym icon_razz.gif

    ABS are part of the CORE. The best core exercises are the deadlifts and squats.
    Nothing strengthens better the core muscles than these 2 exercises. In addition, they also balance the synergy muscles correctly. ABS/Lower Back, Quads/Hams

    But the squat is a very technical exercise so I would stick with deadlift. It's easier to learn.

    Compare the intensity and workout my core muscle get having 225lb on my back when squatting to support that weight for reps with, let's say, 50 or x number of crunches!

    The same thing with deadlifts except the reduced time under tension but increased power required.
