Crunches and cardio.: Truth be told, I think you're a bit too young for an intense workout regimen. But to build the abs, you can do crunches and knee lifts, maybe twice or thrice weekly, not every day. More importantly, you should do cardiovascular exercise to burn any fat that may be covering the abs. At this age, the important lesson with exercise is to learn proper form and not be sloppy with exercise technique ...Read more

Overweight (Definition)

Nearly two-thirds of the United States population is overweight. There are many ways to determine if a person is overweight, but experts believe that a person's body mass index (BMI) is the best way to assess an adult's weight in relation to their height. * A BMI between 18.5 and 24.9 is considered normal. * Adults with a BMI between 25 and 29.9 are considered overweight.

Stop the alcohol etc: Alcohol can raise blood pressure significantly in many people, as can nicotine.

You can do it but dont have to do it alone, and you dont have to be perfect in the process. You just have to remain willing. ...Read more
