What does everyone do for their ab training? I need 3-5 exercises I can rotate, what kind of sets and reps are you using?

this should be moved to bodybuilding/fitness

i do 3 sets usually of 12 reps

weighted decline crunches
reverse crunches
cruches on the ball
cable crunches

I'm sure if he wanted responses from the bodybuilding and fitness crowd, he'd post it in that forum.

My favorites are Ab Pulldowns, Spread Eagle Sit-Ups (w. weight), Saxon Side Bends, Side Bends

Occasionally, I'll do Ab Wheel or Pike-Ups w. "Power Wheel" ('power wheel' image: http://inch-aweigh.com/images/power_graphics/abs/power_wheel_100.jpg)

I try to do one ab exercise on squat/dl day. Usually 6-10 reps for 3-5 sets. Occasionally up to 15 reps.

What are your goals? (That'll determine where this belongs)

I train abs 2x a week, varying sets and reps, varying movements.

I break my ab training into rotational and flexion movements.

For flexion: standing cable crunches, loaded swiss ball crunches, decline sit ups, reverse leg raises and spread eagles. I add other ones in butthese are the main ones.

For rotation: cable chops, swiss ball russian twists, swiss ball kneeling med ball twists and core board twists.
