As a dancer, I get most my ab exercises via yoga and pilates, so I make sure to add more explosive, full body exercises such as V-ups to help me build a six-pack. I try to add V-ups to my ab work out 2-3 times per week, and I do 3 sets of 10-12 reps each time. V-ups are great because they hit the entire rectus abdominus (six-pack muscle) that extends from your pelvic region to your sternum.
