How do you condition abs when training alone?
I understand with shins it's a lot of heavy bag work, but how do I replicate taking body shots either then dropping a medicine ball on myself

Plank plank and more plank, variations of other ab exercises. If you do that when alone you can work on other types of conditioning when with a partner.

 

At my gym they expect us to do 5 mins of plank at fighters level...which is very hard, but if you can do it, then you will have a core like a rock.

5 min all at one stretch or broken into sets?

My trainer has us alternate days on these two routines:

1 min ab wheel

1 min situps

1 min plank

                  = 1 set; do 3 sets for 9 min total, no breaks

 

1 min situps

30 sec pushups

1 min plank

30 sec pushups

                 = 1 set; do 3 sets for a total of 9 min, no break

 

Kaensak used to make me do this one:

1 min bicycle

1 min feet 6 inches off the ground and "flutter" (alternating up and down)

1 min feet 6 inches off the ground and feet crossing over and under each other in-and-out motion

1 min leg raises

1 min plank

That's a good excuse though. Even doing 3 min while your abs are being shredded to make room for a baby is pretty incredible!
