Recently I got an ab wheel. Sounds as though it might prove to be a worthwhile purchase. I need to make it my friend.
Sounds like you have some intensive outdoor hobbies! Wish I could go out and fell some trees around where I'm at!
But if you're regularly doing the rowing and felling, it should give you a heck of a lot of endurance. If your wanting to get stronger in the core, doing different things like the ab wheel and other maneuvers that will confuse your muscles are what I would reccommend. Never really got into the ab wheel myself, but I might give it a go one of these days when I want to throw something new into the mix.
