If you really want to get a six-pack, you are going to have to use better ab workouts. Below I am going to list the top 50 ab workouts I would recommend if you really want to get a strong core and a well-defined six-pack. If you are unsure how to properly do an exercise, check out this page for a video and explanation. These exercises are in no particular order.
Weighted Chair Knee Raise
Great exercise to use to help get some explosiveness in your core.
Great exercise that works on stabilization.
Harder exercise which works well for obliques.
Single Leg Side Plank
Works both obliques at the same time with this exercise.
Great for conditioning as well as a great full body exercise.
Such a hard exercise, but great for really stretching the abs and getting a great contraction.
Great variation to a regular crunch. Adds a level of intensity that you can’t get with regular crunches.
Add extra resistance doing situps on a decline bench.
Twist and Crunch
Great way to add in some oblique work with a crunch.
Standing or seated side bends focus on stretching and contracting your obliques. This is great to help for stabilization as well.
Great for obliques.
Intense exercise that hits everything.
Lying Heel Touches
Great for obliques and stretching.
Weighted Rope Crunch
Good old-fashioned weighted rope crunches should be a staple in any routine.
