My workout is as follows:
50 sit ups followed by twenty push ups
Then, i go for a twenty minute and repeat two or three times.
Is that good for just starting out?
Hm, sit ups only get one of the areas of your abs. You won't get the lower section and your sides if you just do sit ups.
Lay flat on your back with your arms to your side. Lock your knees out and swing your legs up until they are vertical in the air. (I don't want to call it a swing because your not actually swinging as it's a slow controlled motion, but it represents the motion the best) This will get your lower abs.
Add these as well.
Get into a position where you would do crunches. With each arm behind your head take your right elbow and come up to touch your left knee, go back down, take your left elbow and come up to touch your right knee. This will get a lot of the in between muscles.
Last, but not least.
Lay on your side with your legs curled slightly to your back. Proceed to do something that I can only explain as a side crunch. It will probably feel awkward and you won't be able to go to far on it, but you'll know when your doing it right when you get the nice burn just like all the rest of these things.
Plus I sent you a copy of the P90X Ab Ripper X didn't I? That will get all of these groups + ones that you didn't know existed.
