Abs Exercises Boot Camp Workout Regimen

While walking my dog in Toronto I’m amazed at how many women are still doing crunches in boot camp classes. And that’s bad news for the bootcamp classes, because my dog likes to run over and lick their faces while they do their ab exercises.

Now to be honest, that’s not the only problem these women are going to have if they are relying on crunches for results. The truth is, crunches aren’t effective, and they can even cause low back problems.

So to sum this up, burst Boot camp workouts, we just say “No!” to crunches – and cardio workouts, of course.

Check out one of my videos on abs and then read the boot camp abs workout that I have also included.

What we should do instead, are workout routines that look such as this one:
