Ab workout...

Happy Holidays!  Well here I am at the club on Christmas Eve, thinking about what I might help with this week.  It's a notoriously difficult week for both exercise and food, as I'm sure you are aware.  But also difficult because many of you may be out of town, visiting family, and wondering what to do for exercise.  So, I thought I would give you a little abdominal strengthening program to do at your home, or during some free time if you are out of town.

Also, November's T-shirt winner is SUE DEAN!  She came back fighting hard after a shoulder surgery, and worked diligently and consistently to ensure her shoulder didn't freeze up.  Fantastic effort and results!  December has been tough, but I do have one more T-shirt to give away...
