Post your favorite ab/core exercise

Trying to expand my catalog.

My favorite is to get in push up position with my feet a little wider than shoulder width apart and do a push up. When I come up I pull an arm off the ground and flex my abs when I get to the top of the push up and do a two count. Alternate sides and repeat.

I like it because it works the abs diagonally rather than up and down.

yuck yuck yuck! I hate planks!

I like laying on the floor with one leg out and the other at a 90 to the ground. Alternating back and forth extending my legs while raising my shoulder blades off the ground I rotate with a 10 pound weight on the opposite shoulder. Also I take and put the plate above my forehead like I am holding a base ball cap bill and sit up with it while alternating my legs. Don't know what it is called but the instructor at the local gym does it in her 15 minute ab class and it got me hooked....

Ab workouts suck. That being said, I have no favorite, I just want the most affective.

Anyone got any tips on love handles?

I have a stalker!

Don't take the comments about your 50 too seriously.

Sean, just keep doing the ab part and cardio and those love handles will go away.
Don't get me wrong, they are way down. Just not down enough. I've become obsessed.

jsut for clarification..there isnt a single exercise that will get rid of love handles... You have to just lean up your whole body. There is no spot reduction of fat. Working your abs and obliques to death isnt going to tell your body to use the fat in your love handles for energy.

ab ripper x was pretty solid. it was short, but i was exhausted. the leg climb was the only one that gave me a lot of grief. i think it was because of a lack of flexibility more than anything else.

the best core workouts are squat and deadlift

My whipped ice dairy drink brings the attention of females to my place of residence and/or employment, and it far surpasses that of yours. Absolutely, it surpasses yours. I can convey to you this recipe, but I have to demand compensation.
