Weighted planks and overhead squats are the bulk of my specific ab-work.

Once a week I do 4 sets of 15 of incline crunches, leg raises, and bicycle crunches, but that's it.

If you can do planche or levers, those are about as hardcore ab work as you can find. Pretty much the only two that I do are dragon flags and roll-outs, which I usually do after lifting sessions. Crunches and sit-ups are pointless, especially doing 100s of them. Abs are like any other muscle... they respond to increased loading, and like any other muscle doing super high volume is silly. If you can do more than 10 reps, you're probably not creating enough stress.

I assume that a weighted plank is like doing a regular one but with some kind of weight lying on your back?

Yes. Easiest to actually set up if you have a belt you can actually put through the loops of a plate.

Plate would touch the floor though unless you had a hole in the floor for the weight to fall into.

Oh! Never thought of doing that!

I usually just lie prone on the floor, then lift the plate over my head and place it on my back. It's a bit of a balancing game...sometimes it takes a couple tries if I'm doing multiple plates. biggrin.gif

I'm assuming a powerlifting belt. It would require your gym have plates with holes for handles, though.

Belt would need to be pretty big on you to fit a plate under it and get it around you.
