    What are some brutal ab exercises?

    I have neglected my abs as usually I train them via squat/DL but I can't do any lifts that involve weighted knee flexion due to a meniscal cartilage tear.

    What can I do to build up my abs? My lower back/hip flexors are paying the price. I'm looking for something that will make them strong as hell, I don't care too much about size although that would be a bonus.

    For me its the ab roller and hanging leg raises. After a good squat session is when I feel them the most though.
    Yes I'm 63 and natural but with a Test number of almost 800.


    At it for 43 years. No end in sight

    All of the above is pefect. Hanging leg raises are a killer, also don't forget to include Oblique exercises. Also try and include Deadlifts IMO it really tightens your core.

    I stick to heavy machine crunches, various cable twists, weighted swiss ball crunches, and DB or KB side bends.

    weighted planks = king. Get two benches, the dip belt, and a 25lbs plate and go to town.

    All in all, great ideas guys. I will have to explore them all.


    Are there any holds you can do while just standing up and going about your business during the day? I practise glute activation by just squeezing as hard as I can when I'm just standing waiting for something and it's working wonders but I can't quite get the feel of this for the abs.
