I hate it… but I love it…

That’s what Tony Horton says about Ab Ripper X – my version is I hate it… but I hate it… ! Seriously – it is SO HARD! However, I am happy to say that I really think I am making progress. I could do several “Crunchy Frogs”, which were nearly impossible to me before recovery …
