I have trouble deciding on good ab exercises too. For ball crunches, it's a little awkward but extending the weight over the head with arms straight makes it much more challenging than holding a plate to the chest. I usually just use a 10 lb dumbell..

Just a couple of days ago I read an article about Lou Schuler's new book: "The New Rules of Lifting for Abs."
And guess what? Not a single crunch is ever mentioned.
