Default Hmmmm...

I've just added in Ab/Ad to my workout and will keep doing them for now. I suffered a calf injury last summer which still bothers me a little bit. I'm very overweight and have just started running again. I don't need to add any extra stress with lunges just yet.

Ab/Ad machines can be great if you're quite heavy because you're working those muscles but not putting any kind of pressure on your joints.

But like the article says - they won't make your thighs skinny. My fitness goal is to play women's rugby in the autumn - so I want to build every muscle as soon as I can. But when my fitness is improved I'll be doing stuff which is more dynamic to build up muscles, strength and power.
