Today we got to see in our fitness centers sessions of up to 30 minutes dedicated exclusively to do abdominal and yet, There are really remarkable results at the level of waist size… What will be wrong? Are we doing something wrong? Basically we have three forgotten points (or that we want to forget) and they are much more important to make series “crunches” interminalbes.
