I Lost 10 Lbs! I Lost 5 Lbs!

I know it says that you should do as many reps as you can within the allotted sets… but isn’t that defeating the point of having a training plan? I signed up so that I could have a training plan which increased in a safe and certain way, so that I didn’t have to take care of thinking “oh, I did 20 reps last week, maybe I should increase to 25 this week”.

Or have I misunderstood the plan?

What constitutes one rep with exercises like the Cross Body crunch? Is one rep both a crunch to the left and right sides? This is important regarding how the software script does the calorie calculation.

I assume Bird Dogs, Bicycle Kicks, Alternate Heel Touchers, etc. count one rep as doing the exercise for both sides, yes?

I can say that too much preperation and not enough action is the main concern for me moving foward. In the back of my mind I am thinking this ab plan in combination with the P90X ab plan..what a moron!

I Did 1,000 Pushups!

When entering your sets for lets say crunches. 20 rep x what? how many pounds is a standard crunch or pushup. Is it your body weight? Need help

what is the rest between each set. It is not indicated, or at least not in the first workout.

Promenader Extraoridinaire Super Walker Super-Ripped I Burned 25K Calories!

Burning routine, only it’s the same, same, same, same… kind of boring. It would be better if the exercises and reps would change as time goes and we get stronger.

For those who post questions concerning reps and weight. The weight is there if you provided more resistance..ie a medicine ball, ankle weights, or a bar weight. I agree with Six that the routine is the same with some slight variation of the exercises week to week. But if 20 reps are too easy and you are not feeling any burn then two things are happening. One your not doing it exactly right and are doing it too fast and not using your core to do all the work. Or number two you are so strong that 4 sets of 20 spread 15 seconds between each set isnt enough. When that is the case then at that point you up the number of reps. you go to 25, 30 and so on. I am sure this plan was designed that as you get stronger and as your abs start to define, you need to increase the sets to make it look like “Model” abs. I hope this helps everyone pursue their need for a 6 pack :)

I Burned 5,000 Calories!

V-ups seem too easy when I hold on to the chair and are much more challenging if I cross my arms on my chest instead. Anyone else do this?
