3,000 in 35 ab challenge- day one, I'm in!
I'm not normally one for "group challenges", but this one seems to be coming along at just the right time. My core strength (and upper body strength) has gone downhill in the last few months. I've been seriously slacking in the strength training department. I figure something like this can only help keep me motivated as well as teach me new and interesting exercises.
As a part of the challenge, we need to post our favourite core move. Mine is the Side Plank Dip. I'm not sure why- maybe because it is hard but doesn't involve the push up position (which I hate). As the 35 days go on, I'll be posting updates as to how it is going.
Do I hope to finish the 35 days with a six pack? No. I just want to feel strong and back closer to the shape I've been in before. And maybe it will motivate me to pick up some weights again one of these days...
Do you have a favourite core exercise?
