30 Day April Ab Challenge

(*Revised April 1, 2020)

Hi everyone,

This month I’m starting the monthly challenges up again! They’re quick, easy to do and build progressively so by the end of the month you will definitely notice a difference in your core.  So this month we’re revisiting the shorter version of my ab challenge, it focuses on just 3 simple exercises a day. I chose to start with an ab challenge for two reasons, one the core is the foundation of all your strength, without it exercises you do for other parts of your body just aren’t as effective or safe.  And two, my back has been super sore lately so I thought focusing on simple core strengthening exercises would help 🙂

In the next 3 weeks I’ll be starting a series on Easy Ways to Strengthen your Immune System, and with all that’s going on in the world right now you don’t want to miss it!

So without further ado, here’s this month’s schedule and exercises:

Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays

 

Planks

 

Hip Lifts

Crunches

 

Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays

Side Planks

 

Bicycle Crunches

Opposite Arm/Leg Crunches

Thursday – Side Plank 20 sec., Bicycle Crunches 10 reps, Bird Dog Crunches 10 reps each side

Sets can be broken up over the course of the day, just get’r done! I will be attempting to film these exercises here in the tiny house, if I all goes well they’ll be posted today or tomorrow. I’ll also be posting a reminder of the weekly schedule every Monday for those who need it. Good luck!
