How do people get motivated to start working out again after a layoff? I guess "keep working out" would be the better question.

I realized over the weekend that if I had been doing even minimal abs work over the last few months, I would have a sixpack right now. Don't get me started about the flappedy-flap noise when I wave. :NoNoNo:

Now ask yourself how do people work out with injuries, like partial torn MCLs?

Sentry and I have started doing this Squats Challenge where you start at 50 and basically go up by 20 everyday. When we got to 100 squats, we broke them into 5 sets of 20 and in between each set we did 10 pushups and 10 crunches. The goal is get to 260 squats ( 13 sets with the 10 pushups and crunchs in between). Then we we go the same up a pushup challange and the squats and crunches with be in between the set of pushups. It only takes about 20 to 25 min and its really helping with toning.

wow, you do this every day?? Impressive!

It's funny you should say this, I was thinking yesterday of changing my legs workout to include squats. Oh how I hate them, but love the results.

On the plus side, after one day of crunches and one day of hula hoop, I'm completely convinced I'm getting abs. Woot woot! :Dancing:

People who don't wipe down the gym machines after they use them should be forced to bathe in a pool of other peoples' germs.

Just sayin'. :grrrrrr::grrrrrr::grrrrrr:

Slow down on the heavy weights. Repetition on lighter weight would give you better results.

hahaha, hope you still think so at the end of Jan.

When it says "10s" plank, does that mean 10 seconds?
