I'll give it a shot o.O
Getting a new programme at the gym soon! So adding this to that may be a killer, but all worth it in the end right?

I'm in for this week. I think I can do these!

I will have to substitute something for the sit-ups.

I did this in May. It's surprisingly "doable". However, I didn't do the sit ups. Really bad for the back (and I have a herniated disc. ouch!) I substituted this with bicycle kicks. each alternating leg is one rep (left, right, one, left, right, two, etc.) I also broke them up into groups of 25 reps when I got later into the month. Now that I've worked my way thru this, I now make sure I continue a minimum of 100 leg lifts, 100 squats (also did the 30-day squat challenge along with this) and 2 minute plank each workout. If I'm really ambitious I add 100 bicycle kicks.

You'll be amazed at how quickly you are able to do way more than you would have imagined. Take it one day at a time and don't get intimidated looking ahead in the month! You can do it and you will be so proud of yourself! :o)

INteresting!

For sh!ts and giggles, I just tried day 1. I agree: situps are NOT what I remembered from my childhood. The abs could perhaps use some work. frown

My abs hurt today but I powered through! I must admit, I have not muscle.... Anywhere... So planking is super tough for me too! I am excited to see a change at the end of this though. They always say muscle really burns fat. I hope I can gain a little muscle and lose a lot of fat!! bigsmile

This feels so good even though I'm all shaky

I'm in. A day late but would love to join. I just doubled up day 1 and 2 into one. Boy, can't do those situps as fast as I used to but I was able to grind them out. Till tomorrow!
