30 Day Ab Challenge– Day 20

30 Day Ab Challenge– Day 20

We are starting the 10 day count down! 20 Days of taking on the Ab Challenge! You are doing so great!! Awesome job! Today we are going to add another exercise to the challenge.  You can do it.  What has been your favorite ab exercise so far?  Have you done all these exercises before or is there an exercise that this challenge introduced you to?

To go along with today’s challenge, I challenge you to add 15 minutes or more of aerobic exercise (cardio).  Any kind of cardio, just get moving.  This could be a brisk walk or a jog,  a bike ride,  chasing kids at a park or in the backyard,  going on a hike,  playing soccer or basketball,  jumping on a tramp, walking up and down stairs, anything that gets your heart rate up and keeps it up. The stronger your cardiovascular system is the more oxygen is delivered to the cells in your muscles.  While you are participating in an aerobic exercise be sure to keep your heart rate above 50% of your max heart rate.  Don’t know what your max heart rate is?  A good simple way to get a pretty good idea is take 220 – your age.  If you are 30 your max heart rate is 190. 50% of 190 is 95.  So I would want to keep my heart rate at least above 95bpm (beats per minute).   Be sure to share with us what you did.  🙂

  1. Done with day 20!! 😀 my fav. abs is flutter kick with my elbow. I also like reverse crunch. 😀 I went walking with my walking buddies at work twice during break times every day as usual. I’m going to start Jillian Michaels DVD next week after my mom gets home from the rehab place. Yay!! I already started doing kettlebell exercises, but I need your example of kettlebell exercises. 😊


    1. Awesome Catherine! I like the flutter kicks ans reverse crunch too. 🙂 hope your mom is doing okay. Yes I will get a kettlebell workout up 🙂 soon!!
