30 Day Ab Challenge

I posted the image that you see here on the Weight Loss Mother Facebook page and the response has been amazing with the amount of people signing up for the 30 Day Ab Challenge.

So many of you are interested in tightening, toning & firming your abs!

We all have a 6 pack, some are just hidden under a layer of fat or two. The idea being when we exercise we burn fat, therefore reducing the amount of fat that covers certain parts of our bodies.

Exercising Abs doesn’t necessarily mean we will get a lean, mean Ab machine, however, it will guarantee some tightening and toning of the muscle that sits underneath. It’s been well documented that we can’t spot reduce. We can’t chose a part of our body, exercise it like crazy and see results. There’s a bit more to it than that.

For any fat loss to occur there has to be less food or calories going in and more movement or exercise going on.

The #30DayAbChallenge and some cardio thrown into the mix will certainly make a difference to the shape of your body, over the 30 days.

**Disclaimer, Please check with your physician before you attempt any form of exercise.

Naturally, there are many ways to do these exercises, please use these as a guideline.

30 Day Ab Challenge – Sit Ups

  1. Lie on the floor or mat with your knees bent and your feet flat on the ground
  2. Place your hands behind your ears or cross your arms over your chest with your hand place on your opposite shoulder
  3. Tighten your Abs pulling your belly button in towards your back (this will help support your lower back)
  4. Keeping your eyes looking forwards and your feet firmly on the ground slowly lift your head, shoulders, shoulder blades and pull up from the floor keeping your abs tight. Rise up to about 90 degrees
  5. Hold for a second then slowly roll back keeping your upper body slightly of the floor or mat
  6. Repeat steps 3-5 for the amount of sit ups

30 Day Ab Challenge Exercise 2 – Crunches

Ab Crunches 21 300x199 30 Day Ab Challenge

30 Day Ab Challenge – Crunches

  1. Lie on the floor or mat
  2. Bend your knees and keep you feet flat on the floor OR if you want to lift your feet about an inch off the floor for some extra “Crunch”
  3. Cross your arms across your chest placing opposite hands on shoulders
  4. Tuck your fingers behind your ears or place your hands behind your neck, if you take the second option be sure not to pull on your neck as it doesn’t allow for the full movement through the crunch, plus this can place a strain on your back
  5. Looking up to the ceiling curl your back isolating and using only your abs. You should be able to pop a tennis ball between your chin and chest, so no cheating and taking the easy way out! Keep your elbows back, and roll down gently after holding for a few seconds
  6. Repeat for the required number depending what day you are on

30 Day Ab Challenge Exercise 3 – Leg Raises
