I have to say that these 30 day challenges are intriguing to me because I do think if you actually commit to the 30 days and make a change to your schedule then you can continue it well past the end of 30 days. For March, we will do a Core Challenge but then we will keep going because I know many of you want to see results and can only commit to short blocks of time in the morning before the kids wake up or at night before they go to bed.
I will include videos from youtube to help show you how to do the exercises and I won't pick anything you can't do easily in your own home.
It is important to understand the difference between core and just abs. You don't just want to focus on the designer or easy to see muscles because your core is extremely important to your every day life.
Bicycle Crunches- This video has different levels, try to increase up to the hardest level by the end of the month.
Toe Touch Crunch
Plank Hold with Knee Crunch
Legs Raised Crunch
*I could not find a good video to describe this one so perhaps I should do my own. Lay flat on your back and put your legs straight in the air. You want to push you legs straight up into the air, go as straight as you can not out. Your hips and butt should leave the ground.
