've been doing so many stomach crunches with a 3KG medicine ball (9 sets with 40 reps) day after day that it has become too easy. I think I have to do 50 reps or as many as needed to "feel the burn." I also realized I was concentrating on my abdominals and ignored my obliques. The former run down the middle, the later on each side. You have to do a different motion to get a full workout of the obliques. I've adjusted.
Today was a full weights day (i.e., heavier weights). For time reasons, to save time, I didn't do any leg lunges or leg squats. I'm not sure how many times I should do these exercises each week. Once or twice, max three times a week.
Bench Press: 14kg x 25 reps x 3 sets
Inclined Bench Press: 14kg x 20 reps x 3 sets.
Tricep Presses on Swiss Ball: 18kg x 20 reps x 3 sets.
Stomach Crunches on Swiss Ball: 40 reps x 9 sets with 3KG medicine ball. 3 sets centre, 3 sets to right, 3 sets to left.
Bicep Curls on Swiss Ball: 9kg x 20 reps x 9 sets.
