Day 3 Ab Challenge

I am proud of those that are sticking with this! I know it can be tough! My suggestion is to set a goal for yourself that is attainable and set up a reward at the end of the 30 days if you accomplish it! Start off small if this is too much. For example, first week you are doing 1 or 2 sets of 30 seconds each exercise and then slowly progressing into the whole 9 minutes by the end of the 4 weeks. You can also split it up throughout the day or a workout if you are doing other exercises.

Do each exercise for 1 minute, then repeat 2 more times to make a total of 3 sets or 9 minutes.

  • Option 2: Do each exercise 45 seconds x 3 sets
  • Option 3: Do each exercise 30 seconds x 3 sets

 

Exercise 1: Flutter Kick (try to keep lower back pressing into the mat, take the legs out wide then cris cros)

Exercise 2: Opposite hand to foot crunch (lift shoulders up to engage abs; change sides halfway through)

day33

Exercise 3: Plank Twist (bring right knee in, twist & extend leg, back to center and change sides)

Don’t forget to comment when you are done! I am trying to keep track of how many are doing it each day.

    Argh! Totally slipped my mind yesterday. Doing day 3 and 4 on day 4. Probably doesn’t count but I’m still going to try.
