I just came across this thread. Wonderful information and help for working the abs. Thanks to all for adding to it. I need to study it very carefully. I love it when I can teach my husband something about working out!!
Update: I did try this exercise today (the one below). I had to cheat while doing it because I kept going to the sides...( I used a steady barbell to hold myself while going up); it is not easy to do but well worth it.
