Attaining Usher’s Washboard Abs
Usher’s daily 1,000 crunches. Yes, it’s a thousand! This is, of course, very difficult to achieve so it is wise to begin with a fewer crunches, say, 50. Then, as you slowly get used to these daily crunches, slowly up your number till you reach Usher’s amazing thousand.
