How are you feeling after last month’s detox challenge?! We’ve been digging deep into ✨whole✨ health this year, eliminating the things that don’t serve us and getting more of the things that DO.
Now, I’m feeling ready to get back to the thing we love doing together most: FITNESS!
We’re jumping right in, and lighting up those ABS ⚡️
The No Abs Left Behind Challenge
Basically, this is an ab “layering” challenge. We’ll focus on one area of ab muscles the first week, and then layer on another area the second week. Then another the third week! When we get to the fourth week, we’ll have a full workout to target ALL of the abdominals.
Yes, it’s gonna burn a little. But a strong core is EVERYTHING. Ready to see the plan?!
How to crush this ab challenge
What does “layering” mean? We start the challenge with just one move per day, and add a new move each week.
Do I need any special equipment? I’d recommend a mat to lay on and to use for move that put pressure on your knees! You’ll use a pillow for Pillow Passes in Week 4, but no other equipment required!
Are there rest days? There are 5 days of workouts per week! Space these out however you need, and make sure to give yourself at least one day per week to REST.
Should I add this to my other workouts? You can focus on this challenge on it’s own, or layer it with the April Workout Calendar.
- Remember that spot training isn’t a thing! These moves WILL strengthen your abs, which is the goal! But seeing a 6-pack takes a lot of time and other factors like nutrition.
- REMEMBER TO BREATHE.
- Be mindful about form – pull your bellybutton in, press your low back into the ground for moves on your back, and keep your head and neck neutral. Slow and controlled is key!
- If you feel any neck pain or other discomfort, feel free to modify as needed.
Let’s motivate each other!
