back to the asylum - core workout

so i tried my second asylum workout today. i did the core one which is pretty much a back workout with no weights and it is tough.not ONE sit up in the whole workout. you use a band for a couple of exercises.

if you don't like jumping jacks than stay away from this workout. the first 12 minutes or so of the dvd are jumping jacks!  killer.

my one criticism about this workout is it doesn't really offer any variations on any of the exercises if you can't do them yet. i physically couldn't do a couple because of my lack in flexibility or strength or combination of the two. these were very hard exercises like the reverse plank with leg tucks.

good workout out though. this dvd is not for beginners!

Abdominal exercise it is easy to guess why crunches were so popular at one time. Given the amount of bi-directional strain you employ on your abdominal muscles, they work on the stomach flabs like no other exercise does. But the degree of difficulty increases if you are using a bench in comparison to workouts on floor.
