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 9-100 squats Day 10-105 squats Day 11-110 squats Day 12-Rest Day 13-130 squats Day 14-135 squats 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 23- 190 squats Day 24-Rest Day 25- 220 squats Day 26- 225 squats Day 27- 230 squats Day 28-Rest Day 29- 240 squats Day 30- 250 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!
