    I'm not buying crunches are great. I feel an actual burn from situps. They just hurt the hell out of your back. :eek:

    I wish I knew ... when I drop these last 3 pounds I gained in France, I'm turning my full attention to my abs (or lack thereof).

    but I have NEVER had a flat stomach. always had a pot-belly. source of unending misery .... :tears:

    I get a flat stomach, just never a six-pack. I might be overtraining. :dontknow:
