    Hi I remember getting this off of f&n a while ago but never got around to it. So anybody who has experience on it please post if it is worth the time over other types of ab workouts.
    Thanks

    Hitchhiker: You heard of this thing, the 8-Minute Abs?
    Ted Stroehmann: Yeah, sure, 8-Minute Abs. Yeah, the excercise video.
    Hitchhiker: Yeah, this is going to blow that right out of the water. Listen to this: 7... Minute... Abs.
    Ted Stroehmann: Right. Yes. OK, alright. I see where you're going.
    Hitchhiker: Think about it. You walk into a video store, you see 8-Minute Abs sittin' there, there's 7-Minute Abs right beside it. Which one are you gonna pick, man?
    Ted Stroehmann: I would go for the 7.
    Hitchhiker: Bingo, man, bingo. 7-Minute Abs. And we guarantee just as good a workout as the 8-minute folk.
    Ted Stroehmann: You guarantee it? That's -- how do you do that?
    Hitchhiker: If you're not happy with the first 7 minutes, we're gonna send you the extra minute free. You see? That's it. That's our motto. That's where we're comin' from. That's from "A" to "B".
    Ted Stroehmann: That's right. That's -- that's good. That's good. Unless, of course, somebody comes up with 6-Minute Abs. Then you're in trouble, huh?
    [Hitchhiker convulses]
    Hitchhiker: No! No, no, not 6! I said 7. Nobody's comin' up with 6. Who works out in 6 minutes? You won't even get your heart goin, not even a mouse on a wheel.
    Ted Stroehmann: That -- good point.
    Hitchhiker: 7's the key number here. Think about it. 7-Elevens. 7 doors. 7, man, that's the number. 7 chipmunks twirlin' on a branch, eatin' lots of sunflowers on my uncle's ranch. You know that old children's tale from the sea. It's like you're dreamin' about Gorgonzola cheese when it's clearly Brie time, baby. Step into my office.
    Ted Stroehmann: Why?
    Hitchhiker: 'Cause you're fuckin' fired!

    IMO it's not optimal to run through 8 minutes of ab exercises w/o a break. It's better to break each individual exercise into reps and sets and use weights. Doing an 8-minute long circuit can have certain benefits, but like I said it's not the best way to build up your abdominals.

    It's actually directly from the 8min ab video as I remember it. Sounds exactly like even in the same order. I always liked doing them and felt they were a great workout. The more you do them the better you'll get. When you first start you will probably be using other body parts to help do them, like back and neck, but later on you will be able to concentrate on using just your abs.
