Best Ab work out

I wanted to know what the best ab work out was so when you got hit there it wouldn't hurt as much.

All answers are helpful.

that's how i do em...if your shoulders can take it and you want to step up your core training i suggest these....used to be able to do 50 but now somethings up with my shoulder and it just fails on me..can't get past 20 now

assisted leg lifts are awesome. Just like leg lifts where you lay on your back, except you have someone standing over you and they push your legs back down as you bring your legs up. Not sure what they are really called, but they work great.

leg pushdowns/leg kickdowns we call em at my boxing class, we usually do a fairly intense core workout for 5-10 mins at the end and usually finish with 20 of these to the middle/left/right.
they kill me, i asked my coach why i strugle with em and he said "cos you have ******* tree trunk legs" lol, im 6ft5 and 190pounds btw, fairly solid

How effective are the ab machines at the gym I have been using them for a couple of weeks now and it definately beats a situp. They call them hammer strength machines and its basically a crunch however you have about 100 lbs or so of wait added for resistance. I seem to like them a lot more since there is less stress in my neck. Is anyone familiar with these to know how effective they are
