  • Most physical therapists are very against crunches! Too much strain on the back for the majority of people. A P.T. who specializes in pelvic disorders (from a broken pelvic bone, which is what I had last year, to incontinence, what they treat the most), would tell you that sit ups are the worst thing for your pelvic floor muscles. Mine told me doing a push up is encouraging your female organs and your bladder to SHOOT right out of you! Do planks and bridges instead! I learned a lot from her and my general P.T. about NEVER EVER doing sit ups!
  • I like working my abs on the stability ball....but I have some inner ear issues and doing the ball makes me really dizzy, even nauseous. Weird but true.
  • Thanks. Loved it.
  • ab rocker machine? are you guys nuts?

    It's confusing that the title says 13 best exercises while the exercises listed are from best to worse.
    Also, too bad that of the first three, you do need materials for two of them, and of the first five, you need materials for three of the exercises, also.
  • The instructions do not match the video. RIGHT ELBOW needs to touch RIGHT KNEE and LEFT ELBOW to LEFT KNEE....sure seems like model is doing the opposite elbow to knee!
  • The title of this article doesn't match up with the content. How can something that experts say is 'relatively effective' make it into the list of "13 Best Abs Exercise?"
  • I'd love to save this article, but I am finding it really hard to see a save to favorites button? I'd really like to refer back to these great ab exercises!

    some great ab exercises! Personally, my aim is to spend the least possible time necessary for maximum abs benefit:

    the above system gives me all the abs session I need in just 8 minutes. Highly recommended!

    These exercises are great and very professional! Last year some of them I saw in a beautiful training I received from http://www.bestebuikspieroefeningen.com. It's a dutch site, but the training has got nice things that you mentioned as well; but also some great fitness tools, like the kettlebell, it's freaking awesome!
