The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Ab excercises -- Help!

    So, I'm entering my third week of olympic-style lifting and have had success with squats, deadlifts, OH presses, and benching. I've been incorporating core and ab work, but looking for some more exercises. I'd consider my core fairly weak, so I'm sure anything will help. What do you guys do?

    A sample of what I've been doing:

    Russian twists w/ ball
    Oblique crunches
    General crunches
    Planks
    Superman
    Bird-dogs

    ...What else is there?

    Basically an exercise I used the first week I was getting started and have continued through....but now it's super easy.

    Thanks for the replies...Floor wipers look like fun!

    One-arm farmers walk is the BEST core exercise in existance. They will own you and you will cry like a little girl.
