Walk past the donut table at any Planet Fitness and you'll see a number of poor schmos lying on the floor engaged in some sort of exercise that vaguely resembles a sit-up.

While the sit-up (or crunch) isn't the worst exercise in the world, it isn't the best either. There are plenty of far better ways to train your core without getting eye-level with the hairballs collecting dust on the gym floor.

This is why I was stoked when the editors at Muscle & Fitness Magazine asked me to replace one over-rated ab exercise with a more effective alternative.

Plus, I was humbled to have my comments (and video) included among the likes of some amazing personal trainers like Andrew Coates, Merrick Lincoln, Chris Cooper, Bo Babenk, and Allan Bacon.

Rock on and get a stronger core!
