What Hal says about..SIT UPS

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!

Indian Springs Metropark
The trails are cleared off making this a beautiful and peaceful run. Ran with Danielle. Perfect winter weather, no wind, soft snow, 17 degrees.
Distance: 8.02 miles.
Pace: 8:27
Good progressive run the last 5 miles. We were not chatting too much at this point!

Whos doing Crunches with me???



  1. Ok you inspired me, I added in a few yesterday. Every time you say Hal, I immediately think Higdon :)

    1. Its funny you say that because everytime I write HAL, I think of YOU and how you always refer to him by first name in you posts!
      Keep up on those crunches and sit-ups!! I need the accountability too! Going to get mine in now!
