This month's fitness challenge is the ABracadABra Crunch Challenge. We're going to work on our tummies this month. This challenge is divided into three levels: beginner, intermediate, and advanced. If you're brand new to crunches or haven't done them in a "'coon's age" (which is a little shorter than "since the woods burnt down"), start at the beginner level. If you've done them before but just need to get back in the swing of things, intermediate's your level. If you're really feeling froggy, go for the advanced level.
How this works: This is a slow building challenge. We'll start on the numbers I will list below and add one crunch a day for a month with a rest after every 5 day interval.
Here's a tutorial on the basic crunch:
Here's how to do a "reverse crunch."
Can't do crunches lying down? Here's a standing version:
OK, here's where we start:
Beginners: 15 crunches
Intermediate: 20 crunches
Advanced: 30 crunches
Oh, yeah, now for some appropriate music:
Ready, set, CRUNCH!
