i d 800 crunches, 600 happy v's, and 100 leg lifts every time i work on abs, is it realy necesary to ad weights?>
No you don't have to do 800 reps. Even though I think L-dub is spamming his web site, he is right about ab training. However, if you squat and deadlift and do other heavy compound exercises that require and build core stability, I don't think you have to specifically train your abs anyway.
Duly noted. It was very well done though, so no penalties other than an edit.

You only feel a burn if you are approaching the lactic threshold. That means you are using too little resistance to build strength. You should read this article: http://www.exrx.net/WeightTraining/PumpBurn.html

It goes back to the number of reps question.

I got a six pack, they're strong enough to stop bullets. I bought mine over at walmart, they were on sale for $19.99. Real happy about the purchase since retail is $29.99

I've got a 2-pack. I have to suck it in, and the light has to be just right in order to see it. It will only stop very small weak bullets, but of course, testing it's bullet-stopping ability is kind of messy at times. I bought mine used on line. Bertha's list. They don't have as good stuff as Craig's list, but the shipping is free.

I've got a one-pack, it came free with the six-pack I drank.
