'Six Pack' March

The February Fitness Challenge is finally over...... whew! 2,500 push-ups and 2,500 tricep-dips completed in 28 days.  Not only can I see a change in my arms and shoulders (they are more toned) but I also feel MUCH stronger.  At the beginning of the month, I could barely do 1 standard regular push-up... and today I busted out 9 sets of 15 standard push-ups like it was no biggie!  These monthly challenges do work!

With swimsuit season around the corner, I thought it was was only appropriate to do a mid-section and ab fitness challenge for the month of March.  The 'Six Pack' March challenge consists of sit-ups, reverse crunches, Russian twists, and bicycle crunches to work your upper and lower abs. :)  The reps increase a couple times during the month, so make sure to keep the Fitness Challenge calendar handy!

As always, you can add on reps or make the exercises harder if you feel you need the extra challenge.  I am going to continue to do a few reps of exercises from previous months' challenges (squats, push-ups, tri-dips) during the day to mix it up.

March.... Let's do this!

Good luck :)

And don't forget... abs aren't just made in the gym (or home 'gym'), they are made in the kitchen too!  For results, you have to exercise AND eat healthy.  For healthy recipe ideas, check out our recipe index page... lots of ideas for breakfasts, lunches, dinner, desserts, and snacks!
