    well obviously to get abs out you need to have low body fat, that goes without saying
     
    from what ive been told the best exercises to develop the thickness and 'cuts' of the abs aside from the heavy compound movements are things like rope crunches, weighted crunches, woodchops
     
    last time i asked this i was recommended to do these at a heavy weight for 10-12 reps - just like training any other muscle group, as opposed to doing 1000's of situps

    Hanging (straight) leg raises without a doubt.

    although this is a hip flexor movement? Mainly produced by the iliopsoas?
     
    If you want to do some extra ab work then some crunches or similar moves (reverse crunches etc) are the best way to go, along with working them from compound moves such as squats etc where they play a large role in stabilising.

    Yes. At the end of every session I punch myself in the stomach for 3 10 minute rounds, really feel it in my abs. And therefore I assume it is inducing hypertrophy.

    CK, I am writing a book about this abb training method call 'Look For Pain, Not Performance' please don't spread it around too much.
     
    Conor,
    as above lower fat levels are the key but remember there is no ONE BEST way to train the abdominal muscles (see the hanging leg raises posts above).
     
    The 'abs' are a group of muscles that do different things:
    Flex (crunches etc)
    Extend (hyper extensions etc)
    Twist (twsiting movements russin twists)
    Stabilise under load (deads, squats)
