In brief: Abdominal exercises
Simple situps can be just as effective if done repetitively, but for full core workouts, planks, yoga, pilates, even push-ups all give fuller, more total workouts than just situps.
However, if you are just beginning a routine, start slow with situps and build up from there. Hope this helps!
