Hal Koegner discussed core work in his section "Training"
1. Selective Weight Training: Low weight/high reps
"helps build the strength you need out on the course, without building bulk."
2. Targeted Core Work: Specifically ab work
"will go a long way toward preventing injuries and supporting a strong, healthy posture."
Hal tries to do 100-200 crunches EVERYDAY.
SO CRUNCHES have been my intentional training regimen. My abs have been sore now for 3 days. I have a butt scab that wont go away. I had to modify my crunches at home because the friction was stinging so bad. This actually was brilliant making me work my oblique's more. Not that it felt brilliant but HEY, If I can get a six pack by the summer at 42 years old I will be happy!
