You just finished reading through your favorite fitness magazine and read about a great new plan for getting six pack abs.  Chances are, it isn't going to work!  Truth is,  most people make one of these key mistakes when working on abs.  What are they?  I'm glad you asked!

1.  CRITICAL is diet.  If you aren't going to work on what you eat, don't bother wasting time with thousands of crunches.  Abs are just muscles - like any others in your body- but they are often hidden behind a large pad of fat, since most men store their extra weight around the middle.  Ever notice how you don't see a lot of guys with six pack abs AND love handles?  That's because it just doesn't work that way.  You gotta eliminate the fat to let the abs show through - simple as that.

2.  Bad form.  Always make sure you are doing exercises properly.  If you are doing things wrong, you might not be working the muscles properly.  Even worse, you can get injured and that will set back your workout plan even farther.  Be educated before you hit the gym.

3.  Just doing crunches.  I know, crunches are the classic ab exercise.  But if you want to really make some changes in your body, you need to incorporate a variety of exercises to really challenge your system.  Just doing crunches is the very, very, very slow way to do it.  Plus it gets boring.

4.  Only working on abs.  You need a whole-body workout routine.  Sure, you can focus on the abs, but don’t neglect the rest of your body.  This is a prescription for burnout or injury.

5.  Failure to Launch.  One of the biggest causes of failure is simply failure to start.  The longest journey begins with a single step, so put the plan into action.
Now that you know the mistakes to avoid, it is time for you to get started.  Make sure you have a safe, effective routine - then go for it.

What most defines an outfit is the added accessories.  It doesn't matter if you are a man or a woman, you need a timepiece that is both reflective of their outfit and their personality.  So how do you find the best watch for yourself?

What makes this so hard is that there are so many options available.  You can choose everything from Epos and Raymond Weil, all the way up to Cartier and Breguet.  The first thing to determine is if you want casual, dressy or sporty.

A sporty watch, as the name implies, is perfect for times when you are on the go.  These watches are usually waterproof and quite durable. After all, you can't go surfing in your shiny new Cartier!

The casual watch is one of the most popular categories, because you can use it every day.  Since they often have leather bands, you will want to get both a brown and black band to make sure you have most of your outfits covered.  Brands like Oris and Fortis have become popular for producing watches that fit into this category - providing a nice upgrade to the everyday watch, but without breaking the bank.

The grandaddy of them all is the formal, dressy watch.  This is where you can really spend some dough.  High end models like Franck Muller can go for hundreds, even thousands, of dollars.  The good nows is, most of these high-end watches are very dependable and can be passed down to your children - if taken care of.  There is even a healthy resale market for many of the more exclusive brands.

The important thing is to choose a watch that not only fits your budget, but also your personality.  If you are not the flashy, showy type - an expensive JLC might not be your speed.  However, if you are wanting to "dress to impress" - there are several show-stoppers to choose from.
