0 HPC (W2 Exhaustion Test) + 300 Crunches: Uuuuuuuuuuh. :)


Today was the HPC W2 (Week 2) exhaustion test. We are supposed to do as many good form push-ups as we can manage before collapsing into a small pool of mush onto the floor. :)

I did 40 good form push-ups. To be honest, I took a few milliseconds break after 25 & then continued on to do the last 15. Hopefully that still counts. :)

Again, did the usual 300 crunches, but this time added even more variety: 50 bicycle crunches + 50 regular crunches + 50 right side obliques + 50 left side obliques + 100 full vertical crunches.

The left & right-side obliques are similar to bicycle-style ab exercises, except there's no "cycling" going on with the lower portion of the body. :) See below for photo illustration of this exercise:

BTW, if you're curious to know which abs exercises are the most effective, here's a list of the top 10:
