    Crack walnuts in your belly button. Perfect if someone gets full mount on you. :XXegg:

    There's those wacky weighted crunch machines and I can think of harder core stuff - either body weight balance/yoga stuff or old school v-ups and hangs - but that's like endurance not powah. So what's wrong with having 135 on a barbell for crunching? Or a fat dumbell behind your head - different leverage should make it harder.

    In the boxing gym we always did weighted roman chair sit ups. I think those probably strengthened my abs more than anything else I've ever done, then again, I was getting punched in the gut on almost every rep.

    I also like weighted leg lifts while hanging from a pullup bar. It's high rep, but excellent at strengthening the abs. Use the heaviest ankle weights you can find and if necessary use those straps that you slide your upper arm into. When using the straps, it really becomes a great overall core workout.

    Try doing some knee ups in a roman chair with a dumbell between your feet.

    You can also do some crunches with a partner, have them put some resistance on your shoulders from behind you....


    You can lay on your back, do leg raises and have a partner push your legs back to the ground. try to resist them on the negative

    Personally I think "weighted" crunches are only part of a core training program, and it's mostly a bodybuilding thing.

    Try side presses with dumbbells or even a barbell in one hand. That will hit the obliques and core like no other exericise. Also, doing pull-ups and holding them in the middle with heavy weight strapped on tends to hit my abs very hard.

    You can also start doing your crunches on a swiss ball, to get a larger ROM.

    Do your weighted crunches on a stability ball.

    Drop a 10-15 lb. medicine ball onto your stomach from arm's length and learn to "absorb" the blow.

    Learn to flip a quarter a foot in the air from a static position on your belly button.

    Use exercises that engage your transverse abdomonis more than your rectus femoris. If you have cables at home, woodchops are a great example.

    And how fucking strong do your abs have to be anyway?

    I don't do balls.

    And they have to be strong enough that I can take a sledge ahmmer to the stomach and say " Is that all you go ************ ?!?! "

    On a side note, my little girl likes to jump on my stomach when we are playing on the ground so...

    One of those stability balls is well worth the investment. Some people consider ball crunches to be the only real way to do them. The balls are also great for balance drills, modified lunges and all sorts of other crazy ****.

    I don't see myself doing crunches with even 50lbs on my chest, while "stabalising" on an inflated testicle.
