Thanks for the reply! :)
I agree, I think planks would be awesome to add but my sister's broken arm prevents that particular exercise. I might add those into my own separate workouts during the month instead of this challenge.

I would think that adding in planks would benefit the core in general.

My sister and I have been doing a squat challenge this august and it has been great! We're working our way up to 200 squats on day 30. We really want to keep it going by doing an ab challenge. She is recovering from a broken arm and I from a bad back (so an ab challenge will really help me.) I have attempted to make my own challenge to accommodate both her and I, plus incorporate a rest day every 4 days.

My question is: I have picked out 5 different exercises to work the different parts of the core:
half wipers
toe touch crunches
lying leg lifts
pelvic bridges
russian twists

I think we're working our way up to 100 (altogether, not of each of the five) on day 30. Does this sound like a reasonable number? Does anyone think I am missing working any certain part of the core?
