Don't make me laugh.

No really, don't. It hurts too much.

Yesterday, after I had done three killer (timed!) sets of pullups and dead lifts, Madison perkily declared, "Let's kill your abs!" To which I replied, "What did my abs ever do to you?"

We did a couple sets of ab exercises that I already knew, and then she introduced me to a new one. I can't remember what it's called, but it's done on a roman chair using the full range of motion.

So, imagine (and you will have to imagine it, because it's not true) that I'm the cute blonde in this picture. Now imagine that I bend all the way backward, until I can both look at and touch the floor. Then imagine that, using only my abdominal muscles, I pull myself all the way up until I can touch my ankles. Then imagine I do that 20 times. Then imagine I do three sets.

So please, no jokes today. I might cry.
