Yeah but they work. I have been using the "flex method" for a lot of my ab work. Instead of trying to find a spot to do crunches in the sauna or what ever I have been pulling my abs in to my spine then crunching flexing and holding as hard and tight as I can for about 30 seconds then I do it to the side then the middle then the other side and just keep rotating soon I get to where i can only hold the flex for about 5 seconds at a time for each position then I take a break and start over again and stop once I have gone to the same point of failure again. This allows me to make sure I am training my abs and stomach girdle in exactly where I want it by sucking in before flexing it is helping keep my waist cinched up. I also started doing bench crunches while on my walk. I get upside down on a park bench with my upper back hanging off the seat part and my legs hanging over the back and I do crunches. The back not being support past halfway allow me to lean back to stretch my abs all the way out before crunching again. I get an amazing contraction out of this and it makes me fail at around 15-20 reps so plenty of resistance with the increased range of motion being a factor.Live Hard, Laugh Hard, Love Hard and Heal Fast! - KLEEN

I do decline crunches on a decline bench but you don't get the ROM as it's not high enough off the floor - I might get two aerobic steps and put them under it next time it's not too busy and see how that goes?

I'm thinking of making some "bits" in the garden over winter that blend with surroundings, but are functional two.. I like a bit of a project!

Knowing is half the battle. I too am too lazy for an iphone. Or so I thought until I went from a qwerty keyboard to one of the regular keypad phones again. Man I need a qwerty keyboard!!!!

Guys, i think you know that i am now planning to run this for the full 8 weeks- and i would like to add a DAA product & possibly another/different cortisol control product to the second next 4 weeks - was considering EPharms product... Would TCF-1 be a better idea?
Looking for honest advice here guys....

Workout – Saturday 11th September 2010
Even though the “team” had left for world champs and the focus had shifted away from sparring onto pre-grading sessions, the fitness element of the workout remained pretty intense, by the end of the first 20 mins I now well and truly sweating and slightly breathless. Not much else to report, by now you've heard it all before, but if we do somethiing different or new going forward i'll provide a detailed update.
Seated Dumbell Press – 22lbs
Yep neither you nor me would be happy with the weight lifted on that one, but the simple fact of the matter is my left shoulder wouldn't do the first rep with any higher weight... so 22lbs it was, really having to concentrate on tempo and form – whilst disappointed with weight, I guess for a 100 reps I can't complain too much!
Barbell Upright Row – 33lbs
Was really feeling pretty pumped by this stage!
Barbell Cuban Press – 33lbs
Another one of those “Who invented these? They suck!!” - took me ages to complete my 5 sets, shoulder was an inferno by this point.
Dumbbell Preacher Curls – 22lbs
30/25/20/15/10 (each side)
Had a nice little bicep peak from this, I wonder what is the best exercise to increase the “peak”, i'm going to do some reading on this and factor in to future workouts
Decided on some floor work...
Gym Ball Diamond Press Up
Workout – Monday 13th September 2010
TaeKwonDo – 2.5 hrs pure hell, some new technical stuff as well (which I suck at, but will have to practice) finished the second session with 200 continious punches.... yes folks, normal punishment rules apply, anyone not applying proper technique or power, when spotted, had to drop and give burpees – this week I did not fail and completed my punches without incident!!
Workout – Tuesday 14th September 2010
Dumbbell Flye – 26lbs
Machine Reverse Flye - 44lbs
Incline Dumbbell Press – 33lbs
Low Cable Face Pull - 33lbs
Reverse Seated Crunch
Decline Ab Crunch
Pretty much i'm in good spirits which is fortunate, since work is VERY busy at the moment and there is a lot going on, I have to credit this to the stack, since I really think I should be sick or at least very tired physically, I am sleeping well, and feel rested on waking, DOMS continues to subside and yet I honestly don't believe I can physcially push myself further presently and I think endurance is UP!
On a disappointing note, I am not feeling any leaner, BUT I think this might be down to diet over the weekend where avoiding carbs was almost impossible. I am going to weigh in sometime this week, but I would rather be depleted since my first weigh in and measurements were in a depleted state. Bear with me i'll get some stats, and new pics up whether worthy or not!

I forgot to mention, since no one commented :wink: i've gone ahead and ordered the following
from NP, so that takes care of next month, i'm going to drop the LeanX and I should have enough ECA to get me through to the end, with erase acting as cort control.
LG AP has now also run out... but like the ASGT, taking a break, think I can manage pre-workout with my current list of supps and I have some Argie in the cupboard which i'll add to my BCAA intra drink
