Abs-core book winner, and another chance for a fitness book
We have a winner of the abs-core book: Congrats to Peter. He told us -- like a number of you did -- that planks are a key part of his abs/core workout.
Me, never done them, but you're motivating me to try.
If you're goal-oriented -- timewise, that is -- you might be interested in another book. This one's called "Deadline Fitness," and it's by Gina Lombardi, celebrity fitness coach, with health-workout author Linda Villarosa.
The idea here is to assess your eating and exercise habits, then set goals that are realistic for you to achieve in three months. This means that with a reasonable short-term commitment, you can, for example, see toning in your arms that you can show off in our hot summer, trim you middle and feel great about reaching goals.
I think the section on exactly how to ratchet up your exercise as you work toward goals is particularly helpful. There's also one on dealing with an emergency one-week deadline, instead of three-month program -- which looks extreme to me, but sure gives you perspective on fitness and weight loss.
Interested? Same deal as last week. This time, tell us what one-week exercise program has helped your body "emergency" and you're in the running for the book. Emails by Monday night!
