    "One hundred SIT UPS"?

    Hi all,

    I've been doing the "one hundred push ups" program from http://hundredpushups.com/
    for a while now. Now, I am looking for a similarily easy workout for my abs, something that I could do without too much effort before I go to work, or when I come home at night.
    Could you please recommend me one?

    - I am not looking to work out for a summer sixpack here, but just to strengthen my abs/trunk muscles a bit. *Groans.* I've been doing a bit FC sparring lately, and ooooh, I really need to get more in shape. *Applies more ointment to his abs.*

    Thank you, and happy holidays,

    Rafe

    Dude, the 100 push-ups program is junk that's just gonna result in muscular imbalances. If you're looking for a bodyweight routine, hit up trainforstrength.com and do workout 1.

    Why do people have such a boner for the number 100?

    Raise your standards, man. Sit-ups aren't going to do anything for you.

    Because 97 just dosent have the same ring to it. On a serious note I did the 100 push up program, It wasnt so bad, But I just went back to lifting weights. It just kind of seemed pointless. And No I never did get to 100. I like the ab wheel better than sit ups, but I do them both.

    For ab work, ab wheel, ab pulldowns, saxon side bends and woodchops are awesome.

    Thank you for the advice. Maybe I should have asked in a more precise way, though:

    I am looking for something I can do, like, right after waking up, or in a break of five to fifteen minutes, not a complete workout (I have tried the training-for-strength workout once, and it's trully exceptionally good). I am just looking for a small exercise that I can do in addition to my normal training (max. three times fighting, and three times lifting a week).

    As to one-hundred-PU program, it's as good as anything else I guess, though I share hoodedmonk's opinion. It is okay for a time, but you take much longer to get to the magic hundred than just six weeks.

    Working on standing ab wheel rollouts (if you cant already knock a few out) is something goal oriented that can be done in addition to a regular routine, assuming that you arent in such lousy shape you would hurt yourself (Its pretty intense for most people),

    Use a wall to stop you on your way down ... right the point where you can bring yourself back to the starting position for a few reps. Over time (maybe months) you should be able to inch back till you no longer need the wall.

    No doubt. The ab wheel is a ball buster. I think it would be perfect for what you are asking. And on a side note, I love push-ups. Keep with it!

    When I read these words I had a vision of Emevas and myself wearing short-sleeve collared white shirts and skinny black ties, going door to door with free copies of Starting Strength:
