Right now I'm at 50 (obviously not that impressive ) I add 5 every few weeks but I'm a lazy bum
You're right though, they're boring....I usually do them while I'm watching TV...Love my Emeril (God I'm such an old lady! )

I don't just do crunches. I have a whole routine of variations on the basic crunch to target every part of my abs.

However...running puts pressure on your joints (think about your knees). I love swimming because it works out your entire body at once and gives you something to do (I hate doing boring workouts) as well as cooling you off at the same time.

I do about 50 crunches without stopping then do about 30 pushups (they tone your stomach, back, and arms all at the same time) then alternate between the two until I crash (like someone said, I usually do this while watching TV because it's too boring otherwise).

You mean you can stop in between and then start again?
I can do about 20 vertical crunches before my knee's start to pain too much.
Normal ones? "to infinity and beyond!"

Hi All,
Thanks for your replies. There are some pretty strong and hopefully flat and toned stomachs out there!

Reverse crunch, cable crunch, cable crossovers and hanging crunch are all good fun...and there's a whole host of fun excersises for oubliques (which actually take up more of the stomach)...
