Just One Minute More

Exercise one more minute, one more rep, one more set, one more _______ than you did yesterday. One more bus stop, one more lap.

Abs in the car!

Try sitting up (not touching the seat back) while you are driving in the car. It is surprisingly hard to do for the whole time (I think the seat belt provides extra resistance) and works your abs while you drive!
