    What kind of exercises do strongman do for increasing abdominal strength?

    What kind of abdominal training does a strongman do in his routine?

    This is something I want to work on. I'm not looking for that 6 pack BS.. I'm looking for info that will get me stronger abs that will have a carryover to improving my compound lifts (squat, deadlifts) and to help me with jumping higher, sprinting faster etc.

    Also.. I know this is primary a powerlifting section so some info on how you powerlifters address this part of your training?

    As a PLer I've always liked ab wheel the best. Can't really cheat on it like you can most other ab exercises, and easy to add weight to by putting plates on your back. It also doesn't train repetitive lumbar flexion.
