have you tried any dumbbell side bends or russian twists?

or my favorite link:

Weighted decline situps 2x10 and Saxon side bends 2x10 work my abs/obliques pretty well.

Also, I do swiss ball crunches, but I take two dumbbells, extend them over my head and do the crunches with my arms extended. Puts more resistance around the abs the further the weight is away from them.

Saxon side bends or "OH DB side bends" are what Pity is talking about as well. Definitely the better way to go verses the reg dumbell side bends.

All those endless sit up and crunch variations is just a lot of lost time.

The ab wheel is a good stabilization movement. What I do instead of that is use bar rollouts. In other words you use a heavy loaded barbell as the "wheel". I have a 15 pound training bar (standard plates) which is very handy for that among various other things. At first, when you do it, you may not feel that it is any different...but if you stop with the bar and grab just the reg wheel you'll see that the weigth of the barbell adds a very nice resistance component.

i seen those before but i never tried it yet. the ab wheel was doing enough for me. i dont know if just me weighting a lot more helps give resistance but a couple sets of them do me justice. the crazy thing is people stared at me like i was crazy cause im a big dude doing ab work tho.

Yeah. For now if it is doing enough then keep at it. But you have to be able to progress at anything if you want it to be worthwhile. I mean the goal is to get stronger and stronger not just to maintain. So unless you think your bodyweight is going to continue to go up a provide progressive overload ...the bar rollouts are just something to keep in mind for the future. Obviously right now if you are sore you don't need anything else but the soreness should go away PDQ if you are new to them.

You know, sometimes when people stare at you they may be thinking, "maybe I should be doing that".

lol naw. one dude actualy asked me why am i doing it. he gave me the old you big guys dont do stuff like that. . and when i was dodin gthe ab wheel for a while i just progressiley worked my reps up to anywhere from 3 to 4 sets of 15 to 20. it depended on the day, and after a while i had no soreness an di was good. but then i took a long time off because i was sick and really busy. so i can still get some reps in but that soreness kicked my butt

I need to get my waist into shape its 34 inches at 5,8 although I donít look fat. I never had trouble before I hardly needed to do anything my waist used to be 27 -28 inches id like to get it down a few inches but im bulking up right now and its difficult. I believe symmetry is important and a small waist is vital to give a good V shape but it seems as far as competitions goes today that a small waist isnít required.

One of the things ive noticed about todayís Olympians is they seem very blocky around the abbs I donít mean fat but like a muscular beer belly bloated looking. Even look at Sergio Olivas waist when he was competing it was so small compared to todayís top Bodybuilders.

Freeze this clip when it gets to 2.20 Sorry if you guys are a fan but He looks like heís pregnant although I probably wouldnít tell him to his face.
