    What kind of ab exercises do you guys do to strengthen your core? I don't know much about abs because I haven't done them ever until a month or so ago, but all I do is decline crunches, knee raises, and some weighted machine crunches. My abs are relatively week, so maybe some of the advanced exercises, like dragon flairs, aren't for me. What do you guys recommend?

    don't blink.
    i do hanging leg lifts & dragon flages as a staple warmup.
    i do rocky style situps with punching at the top.

    but my core ab movements are weighed situps & weighed ab extentions.
