The workout rules you should break (part 2)

Do crunches for hard abs
Turns out pilates ab moves are superior to crunches for sculpting your midsection, says a US study by Auburn University. An exercise called “the teaser” activates 39 percent more of your rectus abdominus muscle (your six-pack) and 266 per cent more of your external obliques (love handles). Lie face up on a mat. Lift legs so thighs are perpendicular to floor and knees are bent 90 degrees. Raise hands to ceiling. Lift torso and straighten legs so your body forms a “V”. Hold for one second, then roll back down, keeping your legs raised. Do eight to ten reps.

  4. First off I want to say awesome blog! I had a quick question that I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing. I've had a hard time clearing my
    mind in getting my ideas out there. I truly do enjoy writing
    however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are
    usually lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any recommendations or tips? Cheers!

  8. Hiya, I'm new to blogging and websites in general and was wondering how you got the "www" included in your domain name? I see your domain, "http://www.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=5652596192737507737&postID=6531353222110349487" has the www and my web address looks like, "http://mydomain.com". Do you know the best way I can alter this? I'm using Wordpress
    platform. Thanks
