30 Day Ab Challenge – Redux

I’ve been getting some requests to re-post the 30 Day Ab Challenge from a few years back. That particular post was and has been one of the most-searched posts.  It seems to be pretty popular – especially around this time of year (aka upcoming beach season).

This is a fun little exercise that you commit to participating in over 30 days.  You can do the challenge on its own, or as a complement to your current workout routine.  If you’re already accustomed to working your abdominal muscles, then double (or triple) each day’s challenge.  Push yourself – you’ll be surprised what you can accomplish.

Here’s the Challenge (you can view the original post here):

Butt and Gut 30 Day Challenge

I am really bad with posting challenges at the start of the month.  But then again, a healthy lifestyle change doesn’t (have to) wait til the start of the month so, I guess I’m letting myself off the hook.  I think any day is a good day to start a workout practice or healthy eating program (not diet!!).  In fact, I’m gearing up to start another Whole 30 on Monday – no point in waiting til the start of August when I can feel so much better sooner?

So, with that being said, below is a 30 Day Butt and Gut Challenge to get you going.  Even if you’re new to exercising, this little challenge is totally doable.  And it’s a great complement to your regular fitness practice if you already have one.

And me, I’m a little nuts and completely in love with squats and lunges and planks and crunches.  And pretty much all of it…except push-ups….I hate push-ups! (The result of a serious back injury.)

This Challenge is so great because it’s only four moves but pretty much works your entire body that you can do right in your home!  It also mixes cardio and strength and will definitely get your heart rate going.  And, you get rest days.  TAKE YOUR REST DAYS!  🙂

I love this Challenge so much I’m going to do it along with my regular workouts.  Why not?  Like I said, it can be a great complement to an established fitness regime.

Give it a try and see how you feel in a month’s time.

Cheers.

300 Abs

Okay, here’s the thing, you have abs. They’re there. Some of us just have a little more “coverage’ for them, but believe me, they’re there.
And every movement and exercise we do for them makes them that much stronger and that much more toned. I don’t guarantee “perfect abs” to anyone – myself included – from any of the exercises I perform or promote. But I can nearly guarantee the sense of accomplishment and satisfaction you’ll get from completing these workouts.

Now, with that being said, here’s your homework:

300 Abs

I love this workout because the exercises are pretty basic and you’ll get a great workout from them. You’ll really work your core and may feel like you want to die part-way thru but, hang in there, you’ll make it.

Do these ab moves a few times a week (every other day and incorporated into your regular routine, as suggested**) as you’ll see improved strength in your core and hopefully you’ll whittle your middle at the same time.

**If you’re a new exerciser and you feel this workout is enough for you, then by all means just stick with this for the first few days. Eventually you’ll build of strength and stamina and can add more to your routine.

Have fun.
