How to work these

My lower abs are seeing significant gains but I can’t seem to get the same development in my upper abs, I’m at the point I can do more leg raises than sit ups, are there any other exercises I can do for them?

    The ab wheel gave me serious doms in that area when I first used it, so I'll say the ab wheel.

        Do the blue ones give more gains?

      >Works both lats and chest
      Only viable if you’re doing upper/lower

        depends on how you do them, the upper portion of the lift is more chest, the lower portion is more lats.
        elbows pointing forwards is more chest, elbows flared out and pointing outwards is more lats.

    This one is really good, just do like a crunch and twist left and right, you'll feel it exactly in the spot you mentioned.

      Leg raises are effective as fuck, I’ve started balancing a light dumbbell between my feet as well, thus making the exercise weighted. Though someone said that people are either lower/upper ab dominant and if that’s the case then I’m definitively lower ab dominant

    these things are fantastic, I like to lower my legs all the way down after each rep though

      lowering your legs and raising them will be a hip flexor dominant exercise. If you spend at least a couple hours a day sitting, you're likely going to be doing more harm than good working your hip flexors out. You should try to take your legs out of the exercise as much as possible. The hip flexors flex the hip, so they will still be active during a reverse crunch, but reducing their rom will reduce their activity.

          if you spend a large amount of time sitting, you are actively reducing the length of your hip flexors, which means they need to be stretched, not contracted and strengthened.

    do your siutpus on a decline bench. have your back straight at the bottom for maximal stretch and cuved at the top. play around with rom and form until you get your hip flexors out of it. you will realize when the movement gets way harder than before.
    hint: rom needed is smaller than you think

    This is funny to me cause my upper abs are more developed than my lower ones. Always been that way too.
    I rarely train abs anymore (laziness + a lot of my other exercises hit abs anyways), but when I did I'd do ab roll-outs, weighted crunches, and planks.
