Hi! If anyone is looking for great ab exercises...Ivillage.com has fantastic ones. It's under the title "Lose Your Belly Flab--Fast" (I think)....It is supposed to change your flab into flat in six weeks. I'm starting it tomorrow, anyone want to join me and see if it really works? The url is:

That's so funny, some of these are actual ones that my physical therapist gave me to do for my back, so I may be able to do most of these...thanks for posting this! :)

Laurie, hon, thanks for posting those! But do be aware that you can't convert your fat into muscle just by exercising the area. What you'll do is build up muscle under the fat, but it won't make the fat go away. You'll need a combo of strength training, cardio, and diet to make the fat go away, and it does take time. That doesn't mean that doing ab exercises isn't worth, because it totally is! You use your abs constantly for almost every type of exercise, and keeping your core strong is so important! But don't think that if you do a ton of crunches, your belly will look like Janet Jackson's after six weeks. KWIM? :D

Also check out the exercise forum here on 3FC...they have tons of great advice!!! :yes:
