Back in May, a friend of mine posted a “30 day ab challenge” event on her facebook. Isaac and I decided to give it a go. After losing a bunch of weight, I decided it was time to get back into guided activity, just to see what would happen. Here is the schedule we tackled:
It started off pretty easy and neither Isaac nor I had any trouble keeping up with the program…we pretty easily sailed through the routine until somewhere around Day 22 or so. It got to the point where just sheer number of movements got tiring…I know that sort of makes sense…it is exercise after all. But it was more in our heads than anything. On the last day, we did 200 crunches. What gets in your head is when we hit 100, we are only half way done. It’s hard physically too of course but working our way into it made it doable. Since we completed the challenge, we have decided to just keep doing it. Three days a week, we just do Day 30 again. It’s not easy, but it is definitely easier than when we first got to day 30. We added push-ups to it too, just to add a little something outside of the ab part. It’s been a really cool workout for us and only takes a little time each week to get it done. I know you may be wondering…did it work? The answer is yes, it definitely did. I think it is probably best that I do not post pics of my abs on here, but you’ll have to try it for yourself and see!
It’s a little late for this year, but start now and get ready for Beach 2015!
