A Really Simple Ab Strengthener

It's not often that I find a usable golf tip in People magazine. To be honest, I can't give you much in the way of specifics about it. I don't remember exactly when I saw it, but I'm pretty sure it was part of an article about LL Cool J's workout book called LL Cool J's Platinum Workout, and I'm pretty sure it was a tip given by his trainer and coauthor Dave "Scooter" Honig. I'm guessing the article was from 2007, because I found this short article from that time in the People online archives. The online article includes a four-exercise ab program, but they don't include the tip that Honig gave in the magazine.

It's a shame, really. A lot of people might actually be willing to try the tip. And just what was that tip? Simply this:

You can strengthen your abs just by tensing them for 20 seconds every hour you're awake.

That's it. Unbelievable, isn't it? But imagine doing a sit-up, then stopping halfway up and holding that position for 20 seconds. That would be a lot of work, wouldn't it? This tensing exercise isn't quite as difficult, but it can give your abs a decent workout... especially if you do it once every hour. In essence, you make ab strengthening a part of your daily routine.

Wow. I hope this incredibly complex ab workout doesn't tire you out too much.
