    Best ab workout?

    I have always hated doing abs but lately have been getting back into doing them. I do bench assisted crunches, leg raises, and on occasions use a medicine ball and a large balance ball for abs. I'll also on occasions do v-ups and trunk twists wig a 4kg medicine ball for lower abs and obliques. Im not seeing the definition I want and know my diet comes into play. My question is should I go back to using weight when I do abs or use only bodyweight. I have heard pros and cons to each but everyone's body is different and reacts differently. Can I get some insight on this?!??

    Go lose weight then see what sort of work your abs need.

    ^^Exactly, you don't need to do 500reps of abs everyday nor every week. Just do some more cardio, reduce your calorie intake and you'll see those abs...

    I'm a big fan of plate push aways and no seconds reps.

    Hi GymKr@zy,
    One simple but effective ab exercise which you can do at home also and without any equipment required.
    Do double crunch exercise to make 6 packs.
    Lie down on floor/bench with your hands behind your head and your knees bent.
    Keep elbow back as it will be out of sight.
    Bent your hands behind head and knees to 90 degree.
    Leading chest and chin upwards, raise shoulders off floor/bench while contracting the abdominal.
    During double crunch bring knees towards chest.
    Repeat the procedure.
