    Best abs exercise i ever did

    right... so i have tried doing normal situps and normal crunches and all the other things. the best exercise i have found is this one here. I have done a good job in paint to illustrate the exercise. obviously other people may know of a proper picture. but i couldn't find one.

    I go till i am just about parallel to ground level. I don't go down so that my back is inverted or something. but thats what i do. any comments. suggestions or whatever. thought i might share this...

    ok. the drawing sucks. anyone else do these exercises? anyone tried them?

    lol. we all replied at once or something cause i didnt see your posts. if they look like that lego man it must be my natural skills in paint. i can assure you, the drawings are unique. everything from scratch!

    Do you arc your back over it? When I do those, I always get a really full extension.

    no. i was advised not to arc my back over it. because it would cause back pain or something i don't know. (arcing my back is what i meant when i said " I don't go down so that my back is inverted or something." )

    I use a contraption that is somewhat similar in my gym for abs, but with two alterations. One, I adjust the bench such that it is not parallel to the floor, but rather so it is slanted downwards towards the floor, maybe 20-30 degrees downwards. Two, I hold weighted plates to my chest. I figure this would give my abs the maximum amount of work.

    A third difference, come to think of it: the bench is much longer, so that it would be possible, on the bottom of the down movement, to have one's complete back on the bench. I stop before reaching the very bottom so as to maintain constant pressure for my abs.

    I think the best ab exercise I ever got was when I made my buddy piss his pants laughing, I never laughed so hard in my life when he stood up and tehre was a puddle under him, and never had my abs sore for 2 days before that.
    If sense were common, everyone would have it.

    I have had that happen to me too (the laughing, not the pissing of the pants). One of my buddies was drunk in a bar and laughed so hard he fell off the abr stoll and smashed his jaw and it got locked. He had to go to the hospital to get it fixed. I laughed so hard I was sore for days.
