Thanks! I have been doing planks this week not realizing how much they helped my core!

I recently finished the Hip Hop workout series and it really toned my core. There weren't any crunches involved either!

Hi Steph

There are a lot of other core exercises that are more effective than crunches. Planks are probably one of the most effective. Here's a blog about them you might find helpful:

Hi! I just started back exercising today! Yay me! And find that the with all the extra weight I am carrying the normal crunch styled move is very difficult. I was wondering if anyone knew of a friendlier way to tone my core until the belly shrinks some. emoticon Or do I just keep at it feeling like I am not 'crunching' all the way? emoticon

Thanks!
Steph
