I'm really getting into this...
yeah, i added side crunches today, now that I started doing 75. I'm surprised I have been able to keep it up! I feel like I can already tell a small difference.

Silly question
Enter crunches under calisthenics. Calisthenics include: stretches,crunches,sit-ups,jum... jacks,push-ups,pull-ups,squats... raises,dips,flutter kicks,etc (I found that at Wikipedia) :)

Best time to work out?
That's okay! :) Oh I know what you mean, after working out in the morning I feel so energised and not as hungry as I thought I was! Yeah it's good to work out in peace and quiet :)
