Has anyone heard of the 30 day squat or crunch challenge? I was given this challenge by a friend who told me about it, so I searched for it on the internet. Here is what I found out.

The 30 day challenge is to get you motivated into doing exercise, but doing much less exercise than usual. So, I have decided to do these two challenges starting today.

The Crunch Challenge

A crunch is like a sit up, but you do not go all the way up. Lay down on your back and bend your knees. Then lift your head and shoulders slightly upwards and feel your abdomen tighten. Here is how you do the crunch challenge.

Day 1.... 20 crunches
Day 2.... 25 crunches
Day 3.... 30 crunches
Day 4... Rest
Day 5... 40 crunches
Day 6... 45 crunches
Day 7... 50 crunches
Day 8... Rest
Day 9... 60 crunches
Day 10... 65 crunches
Day 11... 70 crunches
Day 12... Rest
Day 13... 80 crunches
Day 14... 90 crunches
Day 15... 95 crunches
Day 16... Rest
Day 17... 100 crunches
Day 18... 105 crunches
Day 19... 110 crunches
Day 20... Rest
Day 21... 115 crunches
Day 22... 120 crunches
Day 23... 125 crunches
Day 24... Rest
Day 25... 130 crunches
Day 26... 135 crunches
Day 27... 140 crunches
Day 28... Rest
Day 29... 145 crunches
Day 30... 150 crunches

The Squat Challenge

A squat is standing and bending your knees with your arms out in front of you as if you are going to sit down. Do this exercise for 30 days along with the crunch challenge. This is how you do it.

Day 1-50 squats
Day 2-55 squats
Day 3-60 squats
Day 4-Rest
Day 5-70 squats
Day 6-75 squats
Day 7-80 squats
Day 8-Rest

Day 15- 140 squats
Day 16-Rest
Day 17-150 squats
Day 18- 155 squats
Day 19- 160 squats
Day 20-Rest
Day 21- 180 squats
Day 22- 185 squats

Day 26- 225 squats
Day 27- 230 squats

The good thing about this challenge is that you can rest from them every 3 days, which is a bonus for me. So, who will do this challenge with me? Give it a try!
