    I will! Hate these things but a flat abdomen is what Im working for...better get to liking them I guess!
    Unfortunately doing 200 crunches a day will not give you a flat stomach... moving is always better than not moving, but if your goal is to get a flat core, this is not the way to go about it I'm afraid.

    Whoa, people! Please do not do 200 crunches a day unless you want to put great shearing forces on your lumbar spine!!!! Crunches = bad!

    Sorry.

    I'm assuming you are all wishing for flatter, tighter, more toned tummies? This is what you do:

    1) Eat a clean diet - ABS ARE MADE IN THE KITCHEN
    2) If you want to do exercises to work your abs - work your entire core - planks are one great core exercise - pull-ups also work your core.

    In general, lift heavy weights and work your WHOLE body as muscle helps burn fat. I got a six pack without a single sit-up. And you can too!

    Sorry if I just rained on your parade! :flowerforyou: Good luck to you all.

    If you want to get flatter abs, you're better off climbing 200 stairs a day, than 200 crunches.

    I want to join too because my classes start again Monday and I feel that I will get discouraged and distracted, This will help me stay on track. =)

    Btw, I know they don't help with abs if you still have flab, but they at least get my heart rate up and they will keep me wanting to stay on track.
