    Question About Stronglifts

    I've been doing Stronglifts for a while now, and i've noticed that the 3 x 12 reverse crunches are not difficult at all anymore.

    I originally did them holding a 10 pound weight in my hands, then dropped to a 5 pound weight, and then no weight, but they still aren't difficult and my abs aren't sore at all within a couple minutes of finishing.

    Is this normal? Should I be adding ankle weights or something to make these more difficult? Should i do some sort of core circuit thing?

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    I checked it out, and it seems alright as long as all the extra pushups and stuff don't cause me to start failing my lifts. Looks like a good cardio/core workout, just a bit time consuming to add on the end of another workout.

    You shouldn't worry about being sore. If you're training for strength you should feel stronger after your lifts (so says PAVEL!). I did stronglifts for quite a while nearly a year, and I plan to return to the routine or something close (possibly influenced by PAVEL) after my busy as heel semester ends and I can work out for more than 30-45 mins at a time.

    That's how I feel after my lifts, and my lifts feel heavy and difficult to move. My body weight exercises that I do are all done 3 x failure. I just wanted to make sure that there wasn't a problem with doing just the 3 x 12 reverse crunches and having them not feel difficult at all, but if I shouldn't feel like the crunches are difficult then I don't have anything to worry about :)

    Thanks!

    Wow, I haven't encountered a real-life Pavel fan since my Kettlebell days, years ago. I thought they were extinct!

    Did you bother to read this before you posted? Its not really on level with the direction the conversation is heading and its written like a crack baby tap danced accross your keyboard.

    Ahem, back to topic. These gentlemen were talking about a workout program called stronglifts 5 by five. Meaning five sets of five repetitions.

    If I recall correctly the Stronglifts guy says you can switch over to dragon flags if the reverse crunches become too easy.

    When I was doing Stronglifts I got to the point of doing the reverse crunches easily without a supporting weight very early and switched over to dragon flags. If you switch, BE CAREFUL! Make sure you are still warmed up. This shouldn't be much of a problem if you're doing the exercises in order but I was showing my brother how to do them at home from a cold start and injured my back. I was out of training and lifting for two weeks. Learn from my fail.
