Try using your abs to pull you up, you can hold on to your neck but don't pull on your neck try pulling up using your abs.

My abs are really sore today! (As were all of my other muscle groups this week!) I am really loving feeling like I am working all of my muscles now though! I have been mostly walking for exercise up to this point so I am really excited to be adding some strength training too! I am glad to not be the only one who had trouble with the side planks too!

I never had an issue with cramps in my abs during exercise, but I have in my hips and legs... I stretch more and that seems to fix the issue. So maybe you just need to warm up and stretch a bit more before you start.

I started with crunches. I had such a horrible cramp in my upper abbs that I had to stop. I have never encountered cramps like that when doing crunches in the past. Does anyone know why this might happen and how I can prevent it in the future?
Thanks

I tracked it 3 times so that I would get full credit for 15 minutes. I earned it =)

I wanted to do different exercises than what I was doing, and boy some of them were hard, but I got through it, I noticed we only got credit for 5 minutes

Yes, they were!! I couldn't even lift myself for the side plank!! So happy I was in the privacy of my own home!

Oh geez. I am already sore from that chair abs workout (day 4) and now I'm doing the 15 minute abs workout. I had to pause it for a moment. It's intense!

I agree those side planks were a killer after the rest of the workout! I can usually do them no problem!

That workout WAS a killer! I was tired after 3 minutes! I did it, though, and I bet I'll be feelin' my abs tomorrow like I'm feelin' my triceps today. I love it, though. Keep it up, everyone! emoticon

I accidentally did it yesterday (so doing arms today) but let me tell ya... I am sooooo feeling it today! It kind of amazes me that as much as I clearly use those muscles that they are still so totally out of shape lol.
