Project 2: Project Abs

02/02/2009

This year this is the 2nd of my (physique) goals.  Project 2 is Project Abs.   A friend told me that I don’t need it because I am already fit, but aside from envying (in a good way), females who have a washboard abs, strengthening the core helps keeps the balance of the body and according to Chinese / Feng Shui medicine, it’s in the abdomen is where you get your good energy at.

Anyway, I’ve noticed i did loose heaps of my body weight for a year but my tummy still kind of remained. Extra skin and fat.  I read that the gut goes last.  Weight loss – check.  Legs and arms toned – check, next is abs!  I am trying to do this program for at least 4-5 days/week  Which is incorporated with my usual running and weights.
