    Hey Mark,

    In another forum dedicated to your Routine, they suggested sit ups on a roman chair.

    I skipped the part of your book that talks about the roman chair because my gym doesn't have one.

    For 4 months, I have been doing Sit ups on a Decline Bench. I have been holding a weight on my chest and leaning back to paralell and holding it for 5 seconds. Doing 8 reps of this.

    I am up to a 45lb plate and it is a pain to hold like that, plus going up in weight will be hard to hold 2 plates. Also, i don't feel like my abs are getting worked out much any more.

    Do you have any suggestions for ab work?

    Happy Holidays to you and yours, Sir.
