    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

(Sep 16, 2014) Congrats Melissa!!! I've always maintained that the Abs Showdown is not just about mega-crunches but also a test of mental resolve, of meeting deadlines and unwavering commitment. You pulled through with all of it. You should be proud.
