    Oh my sweet baby Jesus. The 2nd video was literally the hardest video I did yet in this series. I did wish she gave the beginner alternative move before doing the harder one and then telling you after the fact of like doing the exercise a few times.

  • Claire Williams

    Hi! The Abs on Fire video doesn’t appear to work in the UK…is there an alternative video I can do that has the right permissions? Thanks so much :)

  • Aneesha Prasad

    The Abs on Fire though!! PHEW!!! MAN! What was that??

  • geez

    Day 12: The second video was definitely killer and I struggled so much but I mean we’re all here to get stronger. I hope everyone keeps up the good work. It’s HARD but I keep telling myself that practice makes improvement!

  • Tara Drake

    i had to keep pausing the abs on fire video because I couldn’t do most of the moves

    • Victoria C.

      Same here, I do all the video in a 86-92 degree room cuz I live in a tropical country but I put on a small fan that rotate so I don’t really feel that hot, it really helps a lot

      • Tara Drake

        I’ll have to try that. It’s been pretty chilly here lately though.

    Day 12 – Done. Abs on fire video was crazy. A little crises in exercising started for me yesterday. I was able to do some moves better and easier before, now it is harder and not that fun. Waking up in the morning and starting to exercise is not that easy anymore. My motivation is down a bit. But I will go through. I know it is good for me. So I’ll just go ahead.

  • awesusan

    Apparently I can’t view the abs on fire vid from the UK… that’s disappointing :(

  • cashregretister

    that was v hard but i’ll be thanking myself tomorrow

  • Elizabeth Allen

    Day 12 complete! When Cassey yelled “extend that leg!” during the fire hydrants I accidentally kicked over my DVD tower and it fell on top of me and I was showered with DVD’s right in the middle of the workout. It was definitely the most ridiculous thing that’s ever happened to me doing Popilates! XD

    Day 12 and still going strong, even though i feel like my insides are plotting on how to kill me for causing them pain :)). that ab on fire workout was by far the hardest so far, and i found it really hard to do some of the moves. espically the last one it was by far the hardest yet it was the easiest position to do, but staying in the position was hell….

  • Yuki Kouno

    lmao when she said to smile during those long lunges I smiled but then I fell over xD

  • Tina

    Can’t believe I survived on account of doing adore the core and 30 day flat abs. My abs were on fire consistently.

  • Emm

    Me too I definitely doubted myself, but then realised it’s just one of those crazy challenge curveballs, much like the splits or the headstand where you try, but don’t expect too much. During that video I would sometimes do every second rep while watching Cassey’s form in between and that helped me to feel a bit better than just collapsing – though I did that a couple times too :) Haha!

  • Shannon McLain

    It kicked my butt and I had to modify a lot and take some breaks, but I got through it! :-D

  • Daniii12345

    Is it normal that I’m under performing when in PMS? I feel like I’m not doing enough because I had to stop quite a few times (even in the first video), my body just wouldn’t do it and I don’t like pushing it to hard, but before I got my symptoms I was going extremely well when exercising.

    • Shannon McLain

      Pretty sure that is my problem today. :-/

      • Daniii12345

        I had to stop for a week unfortunately. It turns out I also have a swollen tendon, so add that to the symptoms and I couldn’t even walk. Resting for a week helped but I feel bad about losing my progress.

        • Shannon McLain

          Awe! Don’t beat yourself up. I had to take a break too, old injury flared up. You’ll get up and going again! :-)

  • tinyshinycello

    Oh my abs are not what the used to be back when I was athletic…. That much is evident after today.

  • Jasmine Khatri

    Day 12 done! The on-fire abs video was definitely very difficult – I could not hold much of the positions for long and as a result did not feel like I exercised my abs very well – did a cardio video to make up for that!

  • Laura

    Day 12 was pretty though. But I think I handled it quite well. Being proud of myself is nice feeling :) I can definitely FEEL (also see) the difference. Thank you, Cassey <3

  • Lacey

    I used to have these things called abs…now it is a swirling core of pain and fire. If pain is weakness leaving the body, tomorrow I should be able to crack a brazilnut with my and tomorrow. Yowza.

  • Nora

    I don’t know why but my back kept hurting me so much all along the second video. at the first move my lower back and middle of my spinal column hurt so much through out the other moves. I did not complete any of the moves correctly =_=
    I have a curved back And I usually feel little pain but today was so much. of course I tried standing my back but it doesn’t seem to work.
    anyway I know I am not strong or flexible enough yet. I will try and maybe one day I will be satisfied with me strength flexibility and my body as well.

    • Shannon McLain

      During a lot of them where her hands aren’t under her low back, I place mine there anyway. Overtime I haven’t needed to as much, but anytime I get back pain/curvature/etc I modify the same way she does for low back moves. Hands under. It seems to bring me relief and help build the muscle up for that weakness.

  • Madalina Cocos

    Was already tired from this week and I hadn’t started this one in the best mood and couldn’t keep form ,especially with the second. Even so,it’s better to work out then not to do it at all definitely :D I feel a bit disappointed but will keep persevering. I’m sure we’ll all get it in time. I’ve seen the other comments and glad I’m not alone with this. Sticking with it :D week 2 almost done

  • Tammy Winters

    Oh man! That was something else! I missed 2 days. Gotta get back to doing it every day and maybe it was get easier! Maybe one day the an exercises will get easier! Ugh!

  • Lucia Gutierrez

    Feeling great! My lower back was hurting so much in some movements, but day 12 is over!!!

  • Lily

    I really wanna do all the ab moves but my lower back hurts so much :( The stretch video felt amazing though! Day 12 done!

  • emilie

    I don’t know if I have been going too hard on the last few workouts but my abs were seriously killing me from the start lol! Usually I’m pretty good with the abs workouts but today it was not happening, oh man…

    I ended up going for a bike ride because I just couldn’t keep up with the workout at all. Better luck and maybe a little less sore abs tomorrow I guess. *^-^/*

  • Those abs!!

  • Abigail

    Wow, that was really something. Definitely felt that last video! My hip flexors are hurting from that earthquake though, any ideas why?
    Day 12 done! :)

  • Raphaelle Cantin

    Omg I was shaking doing the stretches after all the other videos, I couldn’t do them properly. It was hard today!! The first one I could do well, better than last time :) The abs on fire woh, that was something else. But I looked at the comments below beforehand and so I know that I’m not alone and that it’s ok :) Day 12 done!

  • Jenna :)

    Oh, I was sooo mad today and those workouts didn’t make it any better, haha. But, I did it! And I really hope that I’m gonna feel the abs burning tomorrow. Day 12 finish!

    • Raphaelle Cantin

      Go girl, you still doing it? :)

      • Jenna :)

        Yep, I just finished day 19!!

  • Caitlyn

    I cried during the abs on fire! I am not joking I literally cried!
