Question Gymboys... wot about abs??

This is for all the gymmers out there. I'd like to know wots ur fav exercise for working the abs. Me being 6 ft +, i find the normal situps and crunches to be a bit of a strain on the lower back after a while. Wot do u all use? Saw an ad for something called AbKing Pro. Like all products on TV, it seemed too good to be true... anyone used it here? Any comments?

Cheers
Amitoj

Lower back aches are often signs of weak Abs ... (correct me if i am wrong)
I dont think any of the TV sales products work as good as the free style crunches ... i used to do a lot of crunches 500 or so .. and then work on my lower abs i dont know what the exercise is called ..
i used to hang partially with the wall supporting my back and do leg lifts 30 straight thn as many as i could with my knees folded ...

I think those are called leg raises or knee raises ... and thats one massive workout u used to give to ur abs.

So wot should i do when my back starts giving in? I have heard of many cases of gymming wreaking havoc with the back... dont want that to happen to me!!
