30 Day Mommyland Crunch Challenge

2 Mar

We’ve spent thirty days doing squats. We’ve spent thirty days doing planks. Now we’re going to spend thirty days doing crunches!

For this month I challenge you to do all your crunches at the same time, don’t break them up like we did for the squats in January. Break them into sets of ten and take a very short break between each set.

To help you keep track, I’ve taken the liberty of creating this printable calendar for you. Just click on the image to print your own copy.

30 Day Crunch Challenge

There are many different types of crunches to choose from so pick your favorite each day. The most important thing is to make sure you’re using proper form to avoid injury.

I will post the day’s workout to the Mommyland Facebook page at 6AM eastern time so we can do the workouts together. Let’s help keep each other accountable for the month.

We’re going to  spend the next thirty days strengthening our core! Don’t forget to start today with 20 crunches and I’ll see you tomorrow for 25 more.

So what do you say, are you in?


30 Day Mommyland Plank Challenge

31 Jan

Continuing with our fitness challenges we’re going to work our entire body by doing 30 days of planks!

Tomorrow we’ll start with a 20 second plank and by the beginning of March we’ll be planking for five minutes. FIVE MINUTES!!!

We CAN do this!

Planks are great for your core but they are also great for your glutes and hamstrings and they help with flexibility, balance and posture too.

If you’re not sure how to do a proper plank I’ve prepared this handy dandy image for you.

30 Day Plank Challenge

Just like last month’s 30 Day Squat Challenge I’ve taken the liberty of creating a printable calendar so you can keep track of all your hard work. Each day you’ll see how long (in seconds) you need to plank for and I will also be posting the day’s workout on the Mommyland Facebook page each day at 6AM eastern.

All you need to do is click on the calendar above and print the PDF.

If you’re an iPhone user you may have noticed that there are no seconds on the timer. I’ve found a good timer app that works in hours, minutes and seconds. Timer+ will give you a good countdown for your planks.

Last month I told you you could break your squats up throughout the day, this month I want you to do your planks in their entirety each day, don’t break them up into smaller bits and pieces.

I know it sounds daunting once you get past to two minute mark but you can do it! We’re going to gradually work up to our final goal of five minutes so we’ll be getting a little stronger everyday.

Good luck and keep in touch to let me know how you’re doing.
