Happy July! This month we're doing a squat challenge - these will help you get that round, toned booty. We're doing body-weight squats - starting with just 10 and working up to 160. As you increase the number of squats, feel free to break them up into sets (20 or 25 is a good amount).
To do a body weight squat, stand with your legs slightly wider than hip-width with your feet slightly angled out. Keep your knees in line with your feet as you squat. Lower yourself by moving your butt backwards, and then stand. You can raise your arms in front of you like I show in the video, or you can let them hang loose at your side. Just don't place them on your legs or use your hands to push yourself up.
Today we're moving on to toe tap crunches - these work your lower abs and upper abs simultaneously. Lie on your back with your legs up straight and reach your arms up towards your feet. Use your upper abs to crunch up, reaching your fingertips to your toes.
Today we're starting our circuit of bicycle crunches - these target your upper abs, lower abs, and oblique muscles. Lie on you back with your legs at a 90º angle and your hands behind your ears. Try to bring your elbow to your opposite knee while extending you other leg out straight.
Summer is here and we all want to tone up our midsections - this crunch challenge will help you firm up your abs and be bikini-ready! Just follow along for a toned tummy!
