8/22 Thursday Challenge 3
 
Two exercise challenges for you today. Focus on abs and back. Worth 5 points.
If any of the exercise are too difficult or need to be modified, you can replace them with another ab or back exercise of your choice. You can do this in a circuit or do the exercises separately and work them into your regular routine.
5 planks (30-60 seconds)
20 vertical leg crunches (see link here: Vertical Leg Crunch - YouTube)
20 alternating oblique crunches (see link here: Oblique Crunches - YouTube)
20 reverse crunches
15 supermans (see link here: How to Do Superman Exercises - YouTube)

I am soo not fit - LOL!! I always have to do the exercises in short sets and never in a circuit. I'm hoping that one day I'll work up to doing them in circuits. I have never been flexible or one for exercising but I'm slowly changing (I think) but I feel discouraged right now. It seems like everyone can do everything so easily and it's all a big challenge for me. ***Sorry - end my poor little me rant;)***

All I've done so far is:
20 vertical leg crunches
20 alternating oblique crunches

I cannot do a reverse crunch for the life of me so I'll have to do the above two again later today to make up for not doing these - or maybe 30 sit-ups. I'll update once I do it & with what I decide to do.

I would NOT feel bad. I made these challenges pretty hard. I would just do it all in two sets of ten.

The reverse crunches are really hard. If you have an exercise ball you might try this. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1yNGURS7gOM

Thanks Patty! I've been so busy these last 2 weeks that if it were not for these challenges I wouldn't be getting any (or very) little exercise. These keep me motivated though. And, I've learned several new exercises. They have been difficult for me though - but hopefully good in the long run.


I'm finished now. Ended up doing 30 sit-ups in place of the reverse crunches.
