Carly The Conqueror

So there is one device at the gym that I just could not do.  It's an ab slant board.  You tuck your legs up into it and lay back in a decline position.  You are to basically do a sit up from that position, reaching your arms forward.

When my trainer had me try it on December 10th, I couldn't even get my shoulders off the darn thing.  I blogged about it HERE.

I made a vow that I would win and not let that stinkin' machine beat me.  I have been doing crunches and sit-ups fairly regularly since then.

This past Monday, after a vigorous workout, the trainer said he had one last thing for me to do, and pointed to the ab slant board.  He said, "I know, you hate me."

I smiled and said, "Not at all."

He asked if I need help getting in it (in the past I needed help.)

I said, "No thanks.  I've got this." (with a big smile on my face.)

He held his clipboard just above my hands to create a target for me to try to reach.  I pushed the clipboard a little farther away.  And kept smiling.

He said, "Oh really?"

And I said, "Watch me."

And I proceeded to kill two sets of 12 each, in perfect form, reaching the higher target.

In your face, ab slant machine.



  1. WOO HOO! WAY TO GO!!!! :D

  2. Awesome job!!! You have come a long long way.
    Between the two or us we have lost a whole person. ;)


Sorry to make you type in the "word verification" but I have been getting a ton of spammers lately. Just type in the word that you see and it should go through.
