Tony! How you doin', mang?

Al, your abs can be built better by crunches. Sit-up are ok but Ive
always gotten alot of lower back pain. When you crunch you only lift
your head/shoulder up.


Most people don't know that situps target your hip-flexors
rather than your abs.


Only if you 'fix' your feet, otherwise it's all abdom!!


Um, your abs don't make your thighs flex towards your
chest, they make your pelvis tilt towards your sternum.
If you're bringing head to knees without a crunching
*motion*, then you're executing the situp with an isometric
tension in the abdominal muscles. Which is a sort of an
abdominal exercise, just not the sort most people think
it is.

Ugh! It's Monday!! ;o(


No, it's Tuesday. I know that because yesterday and
tomorrow are both spin-class days and Tuesday is 8x8 day,
these days.
