→ Check out the Latest Challenge Here
Last Friday, I started the “Race Day Challenge Series” with a Core challenge. Success? Marie rocked it with over 500 crunches. I did about 320. Since we all need stronger and more defined abs (it’s never enough, is it?) I decided to keep this as an ongoing challenge. This week’s goal: 1000 crunches (turned in before next Thursday, Jan. 28th 11:59PM). I know Marie’s up for it, and I know I am! So join the ab-party(Hah!) and bring in anyone you want! Click the Green Apple to see the updated scores!
Here are a couple reasons why you want a stronger core:
- It just looks great!
- Enhances running performance (better posture, less pressure on the joints, stronger stride, etc.)
- Enhances swimming, biking, and most sports performance
- Helps maintain a good posture (a good posture is always very well perceived by your peers and coworkers!)
- For those trying to lose weight, a tighter midsection decreases the health risks of Diabetes, heart conditions, high blood pressure, etc.
Join in the Core Challenge for the second/third week, and all you have to do is your best! It is a friendly competition, and YOU are your biggest competitor! So get on the mat and prove to yourself that you can do it!
I know there are a lot more moves out there then just crunches, so use common sense to count it 🙂
