    if your in a gym the nautilus abs machine is cool.
    arms up over head and you have to pull the weight down.
    into a crunch.
    also pulley crunches are cool.
    something i do
    is crunches with plates as well
    start with like 10, then get a 10 and a 5
    and then two tens
    depends how much you can lift comfortably on
    your chest.

    My favourite ab gadget is an ab-wheel.

    Here are some movements for your abs:

    standing-wheel roll outs (this will also workout your whole core) (you might need to start kneeling until you build yourself up)

    v-ups (if bodyweight v-ups are too easy, hold a weight in your hands when doing it)

    l-sits

    crunches (do them slow and weighted, 3-5 seconds up, hold for a couple seconds, 3-5 seconds down)

    the flag (will also workout your whole core)

    And there are a million other more. I just want to let you know though, don't only workout your abs. You have to workout your ENTIRE core. That includes lower back, obliques, and different layers of the abdomen.
