Re: Question about Situps ?

Re: Fatloss issues

Re: A quick question about rest

The length of time to recover from a workout is the defining characteristic of the categories beginner/intermediate/advanced. The more advanced the trainee, the more complicated the training program. Beginners should keep it simple and repeat workouts frequently.
