I've had the same problem with abs..you get bored before really feeling it. A friend of mine showed me an exercise that works pretty good.
You do a vertical lift like this picture but hold a dumbbell between your feet. I use a 17 or 20 lb weight and it gives me a good burn fast. I also do decline crunches on the max angle with a 35 lb weight on my chest. I don't go all the way up and down but hold about half way up and more like roll my abs forward to isolate them. Just a thought! Good for you for looking after yourself..balance is everything, the spiritual, intellectual and physical.
