Hi Kelley (and everyone else on the team!)
I'm proud to say that I'm keeping up with the challenge. It's early days yet, but "a new broom always sweeps clean" as they say.

Greg & I did a "tourist in our own town" trip (many of our friends have traveled overseas or out of town, so we are left to our own devices) by taxi, train and bus to Simon's Town (and we walked miles and miles!) so we returned home absolutely exhausted.

But a dare is a dare, so I rolled out my mat and I did my crunches! emoticon

Today is Tuesday....only 3 more days left in 2010!

Today's challenge is the Abdominal Cycle...or Bicycle Crunches! You can do it!!! Your challenge today is to do AT LEAST 50 throughout the day...do more if you can!!!

Here is a link to show you the correct form on these...

Abdominal Cycles, also known as bicycle crunches, are thought to be the best stomach exercise you can do. Many fitness instructors believes that these are even more effective than crunches, and certainly much better than a sit up. These are an excellent way to work your core and form an essential part of a weight loss plan.

To do a bicycle crunch start by lying on your back in a crunch / sit up position. Place your feet flat on the mat with your legs about 45 degrees. Place your hands behind your head and gently hold.

To start raise your shoulders off the floor and then bring your right knee upwards and twist your torso slightly so that your left elbow meets your right knee. Then smoothly twist and switch legs so that as each knee is raised you twist and meet it with the opposite elbow.

You should perform this with a smooth and continuous motion as if you are riding a bicycle. This is an excellent abdominal exercise.

To track in your fitness tracker, go to track strength exercises - then Add From SparkPeople Library and click on "Bicycle Crunches" in the drop down menu

emoticon Stop back and let me know how you are doing with the challenge!!!

Have a GREAT Tuesday! emoticon
