I was looking for this thread but couldn't find it. I tried this in the gym the other day. I'm not sure if I'm doing them correctly, but daaaaaaang those things take you from gym buff to rookie in a matter of seconds. I couldn't extend my legs fully, and even then I couldn't get more than ten (these were sloppy as well mind you). Not to mention, when I was first getting the position down, I had like 10 people looking at me like, "what the hell is this guy doing, gymnastics?"

My coach gave us a pretty good ab workout the other day that hurt like hell.

R1-30 secs full sit ups, 5 sec break at end then....
R2-1 sit up, then sit up 2 twists. 1 sit up, then another with 4 side twists - keep going up to 12.
R3-same as last time but after each set of twists you hold half way up the sit up for 5,6,7 etc secs until you reach the 12 twists set. 10 sec break
R4- same as last time but after the holding bit, you go back down and then up as quickly as possible and then lower yourself back down over 5,6,7etc secs until finished the 12 twist set.

adjust numbers to suite yourself, but the other guys he trains says it works really well to strengthen the abs and obliques etc when getting hit. hope the routine is clear not easy to explain in writing.

Hanging Knees to Elbows.

But don't let your arms hang like that. You want a bent L shape with your arms.

"When I hear athletes call themselves warriors, it does bother me a little bit. When I think of a warrior, I think of the Marines I've led in combat, those Marines that sacrificed so showers, little food, no contact with their family, all for their love for their brother Marine and for their love for their country. That's a warrior, willing to lay his life on the line. I've had Marines that have laid their lives on the line for the man next to him, and for their family and country. That's a warrior. The guy who goes into some athletic contest who has no war experience, in my eyes, really has no right to call himself that. That's a coveted thing to call someone, and that's what I call my Marines. Those are warriors." - Brian Stann

dont do too much ab workout, and it wont do anything to your abs, instead your waist line will get bigger.... opposite of what ab workouts should do
