10 Minute Trainer: Day 12 (Abs)

Man, I could barely even finish! Some moves were worse than others, but hey…at least I know they had an effect on me if I am in THIS kind of pain. In fact I may very welll have to go throw up now. Hm…no, not quite yet. If I’d tried doing another workout, then I definitely would be hurling now.

What sucks is that my back started to hurt me long before my abs did. Otherwise I probably could have done more of the workout. A long time ago (late 90s…maybe 1997) I pulled a lumbar in my lower back out of place. The doctor said I could do something to strengthen the muscle so it took a little longer for me to feel pain, but it is something that will never COMPLETELY heal. Some of these ab moves irrirate my back, but I can always repeat any of the other moves that don’t have that effect. That’s the beauty of these workouts: if there is a move you don’t like or whatever, then you just switch it out with an earlier move.


About Steve Grogan

I am 40 years old, divorced, and a father of four kids. I am a practitioner of a self-defense system called wing chun kung fu. My other hobbies include writing, playing guitar, reading, watching movies, and listening to music. Recently I have gotten back into fitness, and this time I am DETERMINED to get the washboard abs...whether my metabolism will cooperate with me or not! The purpose of this blog is to write not only about my hobbies, but also about whatever crosses my mind, whether it is something I don't understand or something that aggravates me. So join me as I indulge my tendency to think too much about topics that don't usually cross anyone else's mind!
