    If your conditioning is there, try dragon raises on a flat or slightly incline'd bench, followed by leg raises, then decline crunches all as one big superset. Shoot for about 12 reps per ex with no rest. Add weight across the board once you can do that. I can almost guarantee the lower abs and definition will start to come out after a few workouts.

    Try to incorporate a lot of compound exercises like squats and deadlifts. Also weighted cable crunches and even weighted leg raises(strict form though cause u can kill your lower back)

    I'd split them up so you have max power. They're important lifts...

    After doing some stretching I usually do these before a workout, without stopping..

    Roman Chair Crunches x 50
    Leg Raises x 25
    Knee-Ups x 25
    Reverse Crunches x 25
    Hanging Side Twists x 20 each side
    Leg Raises x 25
    Crunches x 25
    Standing Twists (for obliques) x 50 each side
    Stomach Vacuum x 1 minute

    Then I'll do some more ab work at the end of my workout. Maybe another multi-set thing like this. I find frequent exercising of the abs works best for me as long as I don't overdo it in one day. When I feel like I need to rest them, I do. But I'll go something like 3-4 days, then rest a day, then 3-4 more, rest a day, ect..

    Don't really do a lot of weighted ab work. If you use weight, you're likely to make the muscle bigger. If you want a slimmer waist, don't use weight. That way, they'll look tight but not big.

    for abz, i find the best workouts are table pushaways and fork setdowns.

    in other words, make sure you are lean enough to even see them. and if you are skinny and you want abz, thats like big tits on a fat chicks. no one cares.
    you can call me "ozzie" for short.

    Could you describe those? I'm not familiar with those exercises. Sounds interesting.
