This is a list of email responses to this obsessed runner who can trick himself out the door but cant seem to trick himself into core strength work. Just reading what others do has been the best trick for me, the guilt trick! - Randy
Karla - Hi! I have a deal with myself during my favorite shows on TV.... I am only allowed to indulge if I plank, crunch and lunge my way through all the commercials! Pleasure with a little pain... :)
Randy this one may not be for you, but I got my belly button pierced 6 years ago to keep me motivated to work my abs. You definitely want to keep the mid-section toned if you are going to draw attention to it! It has worked so far, although I do realize there will be a time in my life that I will take it out for good.
Nancy P. - Just recently I had a chiropractor tell me a more effective way to do crunches, get in crunch position, on back, feet on floor, legs apart ONLY try putting 2-3 books (approx. 8 inches) between your knees and when you crunch up not only tighten your abs but also squeeze the books together as hard as you can with your inside of your knees, I thought he was nuts but after trying it a few times I can feel the difference. GOOD for the core, HAPPY RUNNING!
