Deeply Proceeds from this showdown benefit "Deeply" (Shianne Tupas). She's a member of the Survivor Philippines dot Commers who suffered a leg injury requiring metal platings on her left leg. The dotcom community has been extremely supportive of us Survivor Castaways during and after the first season of Survivor Philippines. I hope we can support her by way of this showdown...and your donations! Monies collected will be posted on this page (for full transparency). You can check out Deeply's Facebook account for more details. Join the ABS showdown and help Deeply with her leg operation!!! -- TheLoneRider

Rules

  • weekly abs pictures should be in by Tuesday noon, however, a grace period of 2 days is given (up to Thursday noon, but picture will be grayed out). Late submission will not be posted.
  • dates/days are Philippine time based on this site: http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/city.html?n=145
  • after 3 'no shows' (either you didn't submit anything or submitted late), you're disqualified and no further posting will be done
  • pictures submitted should be around 1000 pixels wide
  • abs pictures should be contracted (abs muscles flexed) under (ideally) the same lighting conditions
  • showdown ends at exactly 12 p.m. July 6, 2010
  • Polling activates between 12:01 a.m. July 7 to 12 p.m. Aug 7, 2010.

Poll Voting
Poll voting will be done for the MOST IMPROVED...so it's not about the next guy, but you against your old self.

Prize (because this is a benefit for Deeply, winner will not be reimbursed the registration fee)

  • Look in the mirror...that's your prize!
  • Sandugo adventure scandals for every participant who makes it until polling date. If you get disqualified along the way, no sandals for you.
  • Sandugo backpack for the top 2 winners

I'll be joining the weekly submission (it's my way of keeping fit), but because I'm the moderator, I won't join in the poll voting. I don't really care about "winning"...I just want good abs!.

    Abs Tips:
  • you can't do it just by doing mega-crunches. you need to diet and do lots of cardio.
  • to measure your progress, you can do a fixed number of abdominal reps/week and increase the number every week. by the end of the program, you should be able to do 600 reps/session - a combination of side-bends, crunches, leg-raises, sit-ups, etc.
  • ideally, you should only use body weight 'coz you want your waist slim and lean...not wide and bulky
  • high rep is ideal until you feel the burn...and then continue until you feel fire!
  • best to take the photo shot with a uni-directional yellow light pointing down...it highlights shadows

(Jul 5, 2010) Thank you to TheLoneRider for helping us reach our goals. I never thought that I would reach 17.5% bodyfat - I always thought that it would just remain a dream in this lifetime...with this showdown, I realized that the only limitation we have are the limits that we place for ourselves. More power to you!

Dex
(Jul 5, 2010) Here is the result of my hard work and dedication. Although I have not reached the body that I want, this doesn't mean that I will stop to pursue it. I will still continue to work out to be able for me to achieve my goals. Maraming salamat sa contest na ito. You taught me the value of dedication.
