Guys, this workout is ABS killer. After you finish it your core will burn in a good way. A word of caution: if you have lower back issue consider skipping this workout or do sit ups just with bodyweight. I rarely do sit ups and crunches, because they may hurt lower back, but sometimes I include them in my workouts in order to have variety.
I believe that if you have a weakness you need to work on it, because you are strong as much as your weaknesses. If you have lower back issue you need to strengthen your lower back with proper exercises (bodyweight Romanian dead lift, planks etc.).

This workout was hard because of my salt bag 🙂 (Filled with salt) – 13 kgs (28 pounds). Adjust your weights according to your fitness level.

Question of the day
What are your physical weaknesses?
Rumi’s answer: I have some issue with my left leg. Sometimes I have a feeling for a knee, or foot. It is not pain, but I can feel the existence of the left knee and I don’t have any feeling about the right knee. Sometimes I may feel my left ankle too. I don’t know what it is and I know if I push too hard with jumps the feeling starts to feel as light pain. That’s why I am working to strengthen leg muscles. I also found that I don’t need stretching immediately after workouts because I train in antagonist way (front thigh (quadriceps) – back thigh (hamstrings)).
If you train like this you get stretching naturally. But I include short stretching at the end of my videos because of the readers of this blog :), most people need stretching after the workout and I felt good with it many years, just recently I discovered I don’t need stretching right after the workout.
