Crunches are for...
Nong Hao Friend,
Just arrived in Shanghai so I thought I'd give the greeting
in the Shanghainese.
The flight from LAX was a bumpy 13 hours and 40 minutes.
Great time to focus, ya know.
Before I split I was in the bookstore looking for some things to read
on the plane. When I passed by the magazine section I noticed all
the (health) magazines for men and women. The lead on every cover
was Abs. Abs. Abs. More Abs. Chisel your Abs. Eat for your Abs.
Exercises for your Abs.
I wasn't pressed for time, so I decided to see what kind of wisdom
was being imparted in the articles. I took a stack of about 10 magazines
to a table and sat down, put on my specs, and started reading.
The pictures were good. Lots of rock hard abs in the pictures. The usual diet
advice was presented. (Eat a lot less) The exercises .... Hmmm.
Sit ups, Crunches, more of the same, machine crunches, sit ups on a ball,
crunches on a ball, yada, yada, yada.
They don't get it.
The most effective Ab exercises, the ones I teach in Combat Abs are done standing up,
not laying down.
Yes, you heard me. The most effective ab exercises are done in the
You don't need to do 300 crunches, or 500 sit ups, or use a stability ball, or a
machine with weights. You don't even need to get on the floor.
The Farmer Burns Stomach Flattener is the best abs exercise there is on the
planet. And you can't find it in any gym in the entire country. Personal trainers
don't teach it.
You can only find it in Combat Abs
You'll also find plenty of other ab exercises that work, but I'm telling you
flat out that if you ain't doing the Magnificent Seven, you are wasting your
Oh, and by the way, the Farmer Burns Stomach Flattener is so "user-friendly"
that I can do it on the plane ride. Sit in seat. Inhale - and get to work. Helps
a ton with digestion of airplane flood - and that is an important thing to
remember whilst you travel.
Always remember this, lie down exercises are fine if you're truly working
your entire body - otherwise, for the most part, lying down exercises
are for people in a rest home. They're not for the average Joe, Jane ..
or Junior Fure-Cat.
Kick butt - take names.
P.S. Those of you with shoulder pain problems; listen up. Mort from Philadelphia,

I tore up my shoulder 2 years ago playing softball. Rehab helped, but there was
still pain. I couldn't throw, and swinging a bat was really painful. I sat out
last season, and that was painful.
A friend at work told me about your stuff, he said it eliminated his
back pain. I went to your website, what you call Furey Central and read everything.
I found out you had hurt your shoulder too. I ordered the chest expanders and went to work.
Four months later and I am pain free. I played in my first
game yesterday in almost 2 years and had 2 hits. What a day!
If anybody says your stuff doesn't work, send them here, I'll pound
on them a little.
