Exercise Week! Who-Hoooooo! 

So here it is! The dreaded but oh so good for you (and me!) 100+ Crunches MC! 

Did you know that refined sugar goes and salt may be the biggest contributors to a bloated abdominal area AND did you know that stress is a factor in belly fat? Read this article and find out more:  tinyurl.com/2ylxp7 


Read on! The MC for this week is to focus on our abdominal area by EITHER: 
1) completing at least 100 Abdominal crunches, of any type you desire, for 4 of the 7 days this MC is in effect, for a total of 400 crunches in a week. 

OR 

2) declaring a goal of how many crunches you wish to accomplish in the week and then posting your progress, like this: 

By Tuesday, I declare 500 total crunches for the week: 500/0 
On Tuesday I do 120, so I would post: 500/120 
On Wednesday I do 50, so I would post: 500/170 

and so on. You choose which way you'd like to handle the challenge by declaring which method of MC on Monday, the day it starts. All that I ask is that if you choose #2, that you think about what will challenge you as far as number. If 200, or even 300 is a challenge for you, then post that, but if you are already whipping out 300 each week with no problem, push yourself; challenge yourself, REACH! 

Some folks have a hard time with this MC because of neck or back problems. For those folks, do it this way: lay on the floor and lift both legs at a time off the floor as far as you can and hold it. You can do this for #2 of the Challenge and plan for yourself what is comfortable.You may also try a standing leg lift crunch, either holding or not holding a weight. 

Also, it also wouldn't hurt to increase your water, decrease your refined sugar and de-stress, but hey, one step and one MC at a time, right? :) 

As always, post your progress in this Forum. :) 

If you choose, you can combine any other of the tips from the articles, but they are not required for this weeks MC. 

Here is an SP article with a few suggestions for different kinds of crunches: tinyurl.com/2fqpum

Here, also, is Coach Nicole's Ab Video that you can do, if you choose:  tinyurl.com/3cz6je

Don't forget to get your 3 points, too, for reading it. 

Hugs ya'll and let's whip those abs into shape!
