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.

This challenge is to strengthen your core. Strengthening your core is about more than appearance, it’s about helping to prevent injury as well. 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.
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.
This challenge was designed to be something that you do in addition to your normal workout (which is hopefully one of our workout plans!). We have 4, 6, and 12-week workout plans for all fitness levels!
