i get on a decline bench and lock in my legs and put a 25 on my chest... if your abs are stronger(i just started doing this) use more weight. gets the uppers well.. for the lower i strap on weight to my ankles with the think at the gym and do some knee raises.

I like side planks for 3-4 minutes per side, bicycle situps, and also using a bar during situps on an decline among the other suggestions. You place the bar behind your back and support it with your arms (like baseball players pose with a bat, Bo Jackson for example). The key thing IMO when working abs is to flex the ab muscle at the peak, and make sure your lower abs are getting hit. Most of the exercies typically target the uper abs.

Do standing side bends with a straight bar. Only load weight on one end of the bar, and slide the weighted end away from you a few inches so the bar is offset on your back (2/3 of the bar on one side, 1/3 of the bar on the other side). Do 3-4 sets each side, 8-10 reps.
Try that, and tell me how your core feels the next day.

The excersises are pretty much useless w/o cardio and diet. IMO no cardio/diet-no abs.

If you want to see them I agree diet is the main thing. I just train them to be strong though.

Decline weighted crunches done with 25 lb plate are intense. Do at a count of 4-5 sec per rep. I tend to super set my ab exercises and take minimal rest. Doing sprints also worked my abs a great deal .Above all cardio, is the key to seeing your abs but while bulking, you can continue to build them so that when its cutting time, they shine through easier. They also get worked a great deal doing compounds.

this is kinda hard to explain, but get a decline bench and go to the smith machine, put the bench up over the bar on the smith machine with the bar at about level 6 to 8 and do situps pretty much to where you are upside down. Been doing these for the last few weeks and i can finally notice some abs, i can only do it twice a week cause im so sore for days after

Get on incline .. Get 2x 10lbPlates hold them both behind your head and goto town when you hit failure drop one keep going w/ 1x10lb plate till failure then drop it then finish it with twisting situps .. always slow on the letdown never jerk and it will hurt for days

Sets with no rest in between, it's like adding cardio to your ab routine. I do like 5 different exercises in a row before I take a 45 SECOND break. That rips you up.

Tried something new yesterday and my abs are hurting today:
I got on a hyper extension bench but I flipped over so I could do situps. Now what I did is that I used the free space behind my back to stretch my abs. I leaned back a bit farther than you would if you were normally lying down, stayed in that position for 5 second and did a situp. Did 3 sets 8 reps. It was hell. It worked my obliques a lot too.
