May Challenge: Abs 🎉

The votes are in and it sounds like we are doing an Ab Challenge for the month of May!! Who’s excited??? 😳😬 🙋🏼‍♀️

Seriously though, in the past I’ve always been more motivated to do these when I know I’m not doing it alone. Accountability! And the last few summers I’ve done challenges every spring and really notice the difference, plus it keeps me motivated even after the challenge is over. I also print them out and keep them in our workout room to reuse and my kids even pull them out from time to time.

I switched up the exercises a bit this time. I wanted to make sure we are hitting different areas instead of just focusing on the middle section. I also threw in a rest day after every third day but sometimes I move those around for myself depending on my schedule for that week. You can switch things up also and make things harder by adding weights. I usually use a 10 lb medicine ball for the Russian twists and my daughter uses a 5lb hand weight. So adjust to make it work for you.

Let’s get started. Tomorrow’s the first day! Let us know if you’re joining in.
