3 ab exercises NOT to do unless you want a big waist

One is a waste, one is dangerous, and the other builds a blocky waist!
Here are three ab exercises NOT to do:

1) The Waste of Time Exercise: Broomstick Twists
I can't believe people still do these, but recently a guy did them while standing on a Bosu Ball. What a waste of time, they do nothing for you!

2) The Dangerous Move: Weighted Sit-ups
Sit-ups, especially weighted sit-ups, can cause a herniated disc. That's why you must avoid ALL movements where you round your low back (even bending over to tie your shoes). Cut those out!

3) The Ab Exercise That Makes Your Waist Bigger: Side Bends
When you do weighted side bends, you are telling your abdominal oblique muscles to get bigger. And if your obliques get bigger, your love handles will loom larger. Stop these ASAP!
But those aren't the only dangerous moves you are doing.
Cut those exercises out and save time in your workouts,
