This morning a new personal record was achieved. Several years after surgery to repair an inguinal hernia caused by doing sit-ups incorrectly, I have reached a new level of 150 crunches on an adjustable abdominal board set at the highest position of 45 degrees.

Hey David, sorry my email is still messed up, hopefully it will be fixed by the end of the week.

So congrats on the 150 crunches, but that seems like a lot, I hope you are being very careful. My advice if you're gonna do that many crunches is to split it up into 3 sets of 50 with a good long break in between. Have you tried one of those stability balls yet? They're great, and there's a lot of different ab exercises you can do on them so your body won't get used to doing the same thing over and over again.

I personally do three sets of 15 crunches on the ball every other day and also do two sets of leg raises and the plank. Works the whole core, keeps you strong. Keep up the good work though, and remember push yourself, but not too hard!

Thank you, I appreciate your help. I will look into the stability ball.
