My problem is this: I've been pretty good at keeping myself motivated. I've been switching between 2 workout tapes - one is a belly-dancing/aerobics video that's tons of fun. The other is Abs of Steel.
Pushing aside how obnoxious I find the host of that particular tape to be, I've also come to find out that the video just doesn't do it for me anymore. I'm not sore after the workouts and I don't feel like I'm making ANY progress towards toning my abs.
So my questions are the following:
1. What are some good and CHEAP exercises to do to strengthen and tone your abs? Minus the usual crunches, reverse crunches, etc.
2. What tape or workout in particular do you recommend to someone who's trying to strengthen and tone her abdominal area?
3. How can I continue to push myself to tone up that area? I would do more crunches and stuff than I normally do, but then I go and get all lazy and stop before I think I should.
Thank you all in advance. :)
