    Your Ab Routine?


    Aside from conventional compound moves that work abs, what do you throw in for a few isolation sets at the end of the workouts?

    I'm a fan of weighted leg raises, ab wheel rollouts, and weighted incline crunches. Seems to work the whole core.

    Any favorites of you?

    I do a set or two of weighted sit-ups at the end of most workouts (3 days a week). I get most of my core training via heavy deadlifts, squats, and weighted pull-ups. At least that's my philosophy!

    I have found that doing elevated planks against the wall are really good to throw into a routine

    How about movements that actually activate the rectus abdominus, and not the hip flexors, Ql, etc.?

    Breathing crunches
    Bear walks
    PPT band resisted crunches on a swiss ball

    ... to name a few
