When it comes to physical fitness, I am always up for a challenge.
When I saw the exercises in the 30 Day Ab Challenge I found on Share It Fitness,I was curious to see if it produced results. When I didn’t see many people commenting on the post, I decided to try it out for myself and post my progress and experience on my blog to share with all of you!
After having a baby 4 months ago, I am already below my pre-pregnancy weight, but really want to focus on toning my mid-section (especially after popping out 6 and a half pounds of human!) and could really use some focus on my abs after losing all that weight.
Taking on this challenge, especially for 30 days, is definitely a commitment, but I am determined for success.
I have a vacation planned, on the beach, at the end of September, which leaves me exactly 30 days to complete this challenge and a perfect goal that I set for myself to keep me motivated.
The exercises are simple. The challenge lists 2-3 exercises to complete each day and their reps. The goal is to push yourself to complete as many reps as possible at one time, until you reach the designated number per exercise. It is good to record your reps each day to track your progress.
The great thing about this challenge, is that you do not need to completely re-work your normal fitness routine. These daily exercises can be done in conjunction with your cardio and weightlifting routines. Just make sure to complete them daily in addition to your other workouts and hopefully results will follow!
I am planning to post the exercises for the day every afternoon, how long they took me to complete, and my progress along the way.
Please feel free to join in on the challenge and leave your own comments so we can discuss our progress and experiences together!
Today I completed Day 1.
My routine resulted in the following:
- 1 set of 50 crunches
- 4 sets of 25 Mountain Climbers (1 on each leg = 1 Mountain Climber)
Total Workout Time: Approx. 5 minutes
