Everyone wants them. It seems to be the holy-grail of being lean. Well the truth is, we all have them and it takes getting body-fat levels down to see them.

If you are tired of sit ups and crunches and want strong abs that not only look great but perform even better (since you need strong abs to squat  and deadlift and hold your body upright without pain), then these exercises are for you.

A couple cues are this:

-Draw your belly button in to your spine. This will create a nice brace.

-Only work within your abilities. The stronger you get, the better you will become at these.

Have fun and put those abs to work!
