What are the best exercises for a young woman to get rippling abs?

Unlike most other muscles you can work out your abs everyday since they recover so fast. I would suggest the usual crunches but also incorporate planks, toe touches, and bicycle kicks. Another workout I like to do is sit on the ground with your knees up and feet off the ground balancing on your rear. Rotate your shoulders perpendicular to your hips and touch the ground on one side of your body with both hands. I like this exercise because you...

"I have been using the Kathy Smith Pregnancy Workout video since I was 3 months and find it quite beneficial. I was never an exercise fanatic, but find doing it three times a week makes me sleep better, and I believe has curbed my weight gain (not that I'm obsessing about weight during pregnancy). Exercise is always a good thing!""I like the Fit For 2 video. I found it more challenging than the Kathy Smith...

You DEFINITELY have to ask your OBGYN BEFORE starting anything. Your health and that of your baby is at stake! Good ideas to present to your doctor are walking throughout your whole pregnancy.

Can wearing tight jeans harm your baby?

Tight jeans are a big no-no. You don't need any pressure added to your stomach. But only if they are uncomfortable to you. Since the baby is in a cushioning fluid that protects him/her. But tight clothing can make it hard for your skin to breathe. While pregnant your body temperature can become high very quickly, and when your body can't breathe it cannot cool itself off as effectively. So when necessary try a Bella band. ...

Should you go fishing while you are pregnant?

Definitly! It is relaxing and will keep you active in the fresh air. Yes you should go fishing, but being pregnant you should not handle lead weights. The majority of fishing weights are made of lead, but you do have a few alternatives. Steel and tungsten are a couple but they are much more expensive. Better safe than sorry. I wouldn't climb rocks or any thing or go if you due any minute ...

Listen to your body. If something feels uncomfortable or painful, don't do it. Avoid any exercise while lying on the back after the first trimester.

You need to stay well-hydrated to regulate both your body temperature and your growing baby's. Exercise in a well-ventilated area and wear loose-fitting, breathable clothing to prevent over-heating.

Wear only COTTON work socks and nothing with nylon in them and...

How do teenagers get boyfriends?

I don't think it matters how old the teenager is. A teenager is 13 and over. I don't see anything wrong with having a boyfriend at that age, it's the actions of the girl/boy friend that I have the problems with. When I was a teenager I would have given almost anything to have a boyfriend for a long time. DON'T DO THAT! Don't give a boy whatever he wants just so you can call him your boyfriend. Be yourself, that's how...

Is it ok to ride a 4-wheeler when you are 6 months pregnant?

That's probably a decision you and your doctor should make. If you and the baby are both healthy and you are very careful and don't get wild, then it is probably fine to ride it. But a fall from a 4 wheeler could be very dangerous. And at 6 months, your balance probably isn't as good as it normally is. Be careful if you are going to ride it. I would suggest holding off on riding until the baby is born....
