    Default Planks vs. Weighted Sit Ups

    Do you feel planks have any value for ab strength, or am I better off sticking with weighted sit ups?

    Ab wheel rollouts and weighted crunches are my go to's. But a twisting movement to get the obliques as well is a good thing. Hanging leg raises to the sides or the clock if you can manage it

    Planks serve no purpose, using a comment "why not do both" is not good advise.

    My PT had me doing ab roll outs with legs on a yoga ball. Now that was serious hard shit. The hanging leg windshield wiper can also be a tuff bitch - not sure what gets worked out more, my abs or my wrist/hip extensors lol

    The muscles of the torso are just like any other, why treat them any different?

    isometrics enable one to hold tremendous weight weight, but moving through full range is much more effective.

    Good pick up, thanks.

    i don't see any benefit doing both, unless you have some sort of mobility issue.

    what do you think?
