Any exercise that instructs you to "tighten your abs" (#4) is probably not going to be very effective in strengthening the abs because it is very difficult to pay attention to multi aspects of an exercise at the same time. If tightening the abs isn't crucial in performing the move, you will probably let go while you are concentrating on the actual move. Anyway, no exercise will produce flat abs unless you have very little fat over them.
