Are you looking for a 30-Day Ab Challenge to get back on track with your core workouts? We have done the "legwork" (pun intended) for you! Below you will find out how you can join with us on this great challenge that jump-starts your fitness regimen.
30-Day Ab Challenge
With this 30-Day Ab Challenge, you will do an ab workout each day (excluding the rest days) that will have you on your way to a stronger and fitter midsection! This challenge is to strengthen your core. Strengthening your core is about more than appearance, it's about helping to prevent injury as well.
We all know how important a strong core is for your entire body. Not only does it look great, but it is the basis for strength in your entire body. The core supports your spinal cord, your movement getting up and down, and even lifting and bending. Get on track with this ab challenge!
Abs are made in the kitchen
If you've been reading our blog for any period of time, you'll know we believe that abs are made in the kitchen. There's no amount of sit-ups for crunches you can do that will give you a six-pack. I also fully understand that some people don't want a six-pack - no worries, this isn't going to turn you into a six-pack machine.
We have tons of great ideas here of foods that can help you tackle the kitchen part of your lifestyle changes.
Measure Your Success
Add this short challenge to the end of your workouts each day. Take notes about how you feel and how hard (or easy) the challenge was. This will give you something to look back on and compare how much stronger you are.
Measure your success with both before and after pictures, as well as measurements of your abdominal region. Sometimes we don't see the changes on the scale, but we can in the number of inches lost.
This Challenge is for Everyone
If you are advanced and this is too easy for you, you can double or triple each day. If this is too difficult, cut the time and/or reps down and work your way up. This challenge is totally customizable based on your fitness level. It truly is a 30-day ab challenge for anyone who needs to build core strength.
