Anyone else have problems destroying your abs in a workout??
Im currently doing 5 x 50 reps on a swissball holding a 10k plate alternated with planks.  Finish off with a few sets of hanging leg raises.  Hurts at the time but the next day theres just no pain or aching in my abs at all, just feels like its not doing anything.
Ive tried doing sit-ups with a 20kg plate but its difficult because the weight is too big, its just awkward.
What do other people do?
Any good abs routines?
I know the secret it intensity, not doing 1000 situps a day.
I need a way to destroy my abs.

    Lack of soreness the next day doesn't mean that you haven't worked the muscle....

     Personally,i find crunches on a swissball don't stimulate my abs at all....I feel it more in my lower back.And whilst planks will build core strength,i have never found them to change the appearance of my obliques as they're an isometric exercise(depending on how they're performed).

     I work abs twice per week

     1)-Hanging leg raises supersetted with incline Russian twist.

     2)-Crunches supersetted with cable side bends.
