I was just wondering if anyone has any suggestions for *high impact* ab exercise video tapes. I have been doing "8 Minute Abs" since last April and I am getting very bored with it and it is not showing results anymore, so I think that a higher impace video would help, but I don't know of any. Thanks

It may be that the 8 minute abs thing isn't doing much any more because you've reached a healthy point for your body. Before taking a new exercise regime upon yourself, I'd consult a doctor or a fitness trainer.

I went to a water-park with my school at the end of the school year. I had some-what 4 pack before I went, but it didn't show all that much. I did 20 sit-ups each morning and each night, and I got a killer 4 pack by the time we went to the water-park!!!

As a note from a more holistic point of view, most yoga teachers and authors have made clear that very, very muscled abdominals which are tight are actually not the healthiest thing for you, nor do they make for the strongest stomach.

Basically, if your abdomen gets too tight, you lose important flexibility and openness which centers you and keeps your breathing full.

Beppie's advice is very sound.

pilates!! pilates is the best. it's not just for abs, though, but they have some really good ab stuff that you can watch, and then incorporate into your daily workout.
