Good stuff, good stuff. I don't do flat sit ups any more I do all of mine at an incline so I have that extra degree of motion. I like the leg lifts and planks I'll be doing more of
Sadly I'm allerigic to Tuna so that's a no go. And with regard to high Intensity running, I've heard the High low High Low method works well to speed up your metoblism thus enabling you to burn fat.
Granted I can go to another forum and talk about this, but I don't think any of us here are Muscle Heads [the dumb kind] so there's a sense of balance here...
And yea, I'd like to look better at the end of the day but ultimately being able to improve your self for the betterment of your self is what's nice! The acomplishment is also a great feeling! And yea I might work a High w8 low Rep day into my routinue! [A testosterone boost might be bad for me lol, my voice is already deep and I don't need to be any hairier lol] and I don't want to have to deal with an IMPROVED Libido... God forbid... 20 years from now hopefully I'll still be doing this and THEN I'll be happy for what ever help I can get
One of my favorite things to do though is a shoulder work out
Hold your arms parrallel to your side with w8's in your hands,
slowy bring your shoulders up and slowy bring them down
I start on 20lbs end on 45lbs
5 lb increments and 12 reps a set
I go 20-45 then 45-20 again!
I don't have 40lb w8 just 45's so I'm waiting till I'm a little more regular b4 I start increasing! Regularity is my biggest goal right now!
I try to do this too because School Bags are so freaking heavy... want to have strong enough shoulders to carry my messanger bag around school without hurting my self lol, sadly I've got 2 more years of that crud to deal with

high intensity training like high intensity running and heavy compound lifting will burn bodyfat more effectively over time than slow pace cardio or the light weight high rep method. reason why is it forces your body to adapt and produce more testosterone and other growth hormones naturally.
Indeed, I've noticed that as well... so many things work Muscle A+Core.
