Bicycle crunches will take just as long but might be less boring.

try doing regular crunches but every 20 or so, hold your legs straight out about 10 inches off the ground for 20 seconds then do more crunches.

Crunches are worthless. Do full sit-ups.

Yeah I agree with Detroit yoga is a good workout for the abs and also works well for your balance
