I have a fairly basic (but IMO good) list of abs conditioning:

- pike-ups on the regular floor
- pike-ups with legs against a wall (feet up, only lifting chest)
- scissor pike-ups (one leg up at a time alternating and bringing chest up every time a leg comes up; this should be done quite fast)
- hollow hold
- rockers (on all four sides)
- front support hold on elbows (toes tucked under; this is a lot harder than it sounds)

Hope this helps.

Great one:
Hold a handstand against the pommel horse (back/bottom against the horse) and have a partner push your shins...in other words TRY and arch the body, the participant must resist this arch...great ab exercise...
Or hold a handstand with the shins against a bar (hands almost directly under the bar), have a partner push on the lower back, again, trying to arch the participant...another good ab exercise...
