I can help u here since my coach is obsessed with thisStart with situps, make sure the top of your shoulders touch the floor, no lazy sit ups. Stabilize your feet either under a ledge or u can put a 25kg dumbell on each foot, this strengtehns ur legs too apparently.Next do medicine ball crunches, hold medicine ball above your head and raise your back SLIGHTLY off the ground, u should feel ALOT of tension doing this exercise if u do it right. remember dont come all the way up or go all the way down, these are done much quicker than a situp. if u dont have a medicine ball use a weight or some other heavy object.Next leg raises, lie on your back put your hands at the base of ur spine and raise your legs as high as u can. make sure u dont bend ur legs or push up with your back.Next i don't know what the name is, but lie flat and straighten ur legs, raise them 2 inches off the ground and make a small paddling motion up and down with ur legs. do not make this paddling motion more than 4 inches, it should not be a kickin but a paddle.. hard 2 explainNext sit up and then lean back until you feel your abs tightening to support you, now rotate your upper body and touch the ground to your left, then return to the middle, then touch the ground to the right.Next do some planks, if u did this workout correct so far this will be very hard and ur body will be screaming. try do 3 x 1 min plank.Finish with 100 bicycle (lie on ur back peddle ur legs as if ur cycling and each time ur right knee comes up , woutch it with ur left elbow and vice versa).Pressups are also good for core IMO.. I reccommend u buy some pressup disks which rotate.Find some steps, put ur legs up on the steps and hands on the rotators in normal press up position, do 25then put the rotators in a wide grip (as wide as u can) do 25, then put the rotators close to gether do 25, then 1 arm out 1 arm in 25 and switch..

safe manny thats a helpful post as i was also looking for new ab exercisesi've got a question thoughwhy is that people involved in boxing (and obviously people in general) perform hundreds of sit-ups etc., but ppl also say this is pointless and you should treat abs like any other muscle and simply do 3 x 12 with weightsdo they produce different types of stomach?ie. weights produces big, prononced abs and repetition produces very tight, but not protruding abs?no homo to this whole post cos i talked about abs far too much

1. when your punching your hips and abs play a major part in rotating your body2. when you get punched if your abs aren't rock solid your gonna be getting winded and KO'd by body shots all the time. U should be able to take ur opponents hardest punch full on in the belly and continue fighting.The aim isnt to get the abs big its to get the whole stomach area durable, strong and also powerful enough to help rotate your body for the duration of fighting/training.edit. also like others have said u can do ab exercises 247 but if your BF% isn't low you wont actually see any results.
