    Ok, I'm joining in. I really need to work on my ab strength. Managed 1.30 today after lifting weights and doing some sprints. Maybe I will do better on my "off" days.
    Thanks for starting the thread Gwamma. Great inspiration.

    Can I ask whether everyone planks at the end of the workout?

    It is much harder particularly after a kettlebell workout but is meant to be great for your core?
    2010 - 5,11 and 101KG

    2012 - 5,11 and 77KG

    Train hard, eat well and love life

    if i do any specific ab stuff like planks, i always do it at the end of the workout. all movement comes from the core so you should always have been doing something that has used it anyways.

    side planks are way harder than planks gwamma so well done!

    Okay, I'll do one here. But I have to stop as soon as my legs cramp even if nothing else is even tired yet.

    12 seconds. Both of my thighs began to cramp simultaneously. Yes, I can hold an L-sit for 30 seconds at least, do up to 20 chin-ups, 45 push-ups and sometimes one-armed chin-ups, 10 to 15 clapping plyometric chin-ups, plyometric dips, and more - but if it takes legs - count me out.

    And now that I did that, I might randomly start cramping again any time in the next few hours. I've taken my magnesium, but you never know.

    The best part? There's no cure. I'm basically fitness-impaired for life. I lay down muscle like a champ but can't use my legs for much more than walking without tragedy. Its hilarious. I'm so proud of how healthy I am, the way I eat, etc., but have no chance of joining a gym, sport, or even running around outside for more than a few minutes. I can play on monkey bars for an hour or more. But even one weighted squat? Better have a spotter with a baseball bat ready to beat my legs when they turn to iron.
