In fact, you'll rarely hear that kind of declaration with any exercise. Which is too bad, for plenty of reasons.

Yet despite this last concession, people absolutely love them. How about you? Check out these awesome moves -- and have a blast, blasting your abs. (And to make sure you can see your abs, discover how to Turn On Your Fat-Burning Genes.)
Mountain Climber with Feet on the Wall
If you're looking for ways to keep your ab workout challenging (and interesting!), then you must try the "mountain climber with feet against a wall." Yes, that's a mouthful. But this move -- from fitness expert BJ Gaddour, owner of StreamFit.com -- is without a doubt one of the coolest new core exercises we've seen in a while. It'll fry your abs, but it also works your shoulders and glutes. So much so, that it’ll help improve your performance at all the other exercises in your workout. “There’s no better way to train the weak spots that are holding you back in every other lift,” says Gaddour.
