Just about a month ago, we introduced to you a 30-day ab challenge. For March, we are bringing it back, but this time things are going to start heating up! We are challenging the Fashionchick crew to go from Fashion Girls to Fit Girls to see what these awesome girls are made of 😉 . So for the next 30 days, we have come up with new exercises for the Fashionchick girls and YOU to keep up with us and rock your way towards steel-hard abs!
So here it is, you are cordially invited to the Fashionchick x #FITGIRLCODE 30-Day Ab Challenge, join if you dare!
30 day ab challenge
The Russian Twist
Killer exercise for your obliques. While in sit-up position, hold 1 dumbbell with both hands and move it to the side of your body until it nearly touches the ground. We advise you to opt for a 4kg dumbbell to make it extra complex. Then move it back up to the center and go over to the other side, and so on. Going from left to right counts as one russian twist. If you want to make it even harder, elevate your legs up into the air.
Get in a plank position, on the hands and toes. Make sure your hips are down and the back is straight while bracing your abs. Lift the left leg, bend the knee and bring it in towards your left elbow. Take the left leg back and then bring the right knee in towards the right elbow, keeping your body in the same position. With this move, you will be targeting the obliques as well as your balance and stability.
Lie flat on your back with your legs stretched out in front of you. Keep your hands flat down on the ground. Raise your legs to the ceiling. Keep your toes pointed. Your thighs should be perpendicular to your body, while your shins are parallel. Lower your legs to the ground but do not touch it. If the exercise feels too easy, try to lower more slowly. Raise your legs back up to the ceiling. With this exercise you will be targeting your abdominal muscles.
