If its my abs day, I usually do 25 weighted crunches after every one of my sets. So that equals to about 500 crunches. I always do 100 pushups right before I quit my workout and head to the shower.

If I read your previous post correctly, you should be doing pullups as well if you're contemplating joining the green team ;)

IMO doing push ups, sit ups, pull ups, chin ups are very important and should be done regularly. They are of benifit to overall training, and also to seeing your fitness level. A true measure of strength is how many times you can move your own body wieght through those movements. If your bench is 350, but you wiegh 375, and cant do a pull up your in sorry shape.

sorry just a little rant, but I get sick of seeing fat guys (including myself) who cant do such movements, and think its alright. I fall into this trap every so often.

Hardgain, u are not fat, I dont care what u say. U just got little bit of love handles, I got that too, so shut up. And I can only do like 10 pull ups, but I can do 100 push ups in like 2 minutes. :D
