    have you tried kinethetic tape? You would use it even when you're not lifting to provide exrta support to the wrist/forearm area. I've used it on my kness, lower back, and have used it for my daughter's shin splints....really does work wonders.

    do you find yourself wanting to do more ab days because of the extra carbs? i have been carb loading in between shows and all i want to do is abs b/c of the definition loss on my lower abs. i think i notice it more than others but i worry about overdoing abs. my normal ab set includes 400-600 reps, so doing them 7 days a week like i want would be a little much!

    No. I want to do more abs because I don't have that full 6 pack. I have maybe a 4. lol! My abs are very shallow so I have to build them up more.
    I wouldn't do more reps. I'd just add more weight.
