Marc’s 30 Day Squat, Abs and Push Up Challenge

When I saw this post, I thought “That’s a good idea. A 30 day challenge is just what I need for the Summer holidays to keep my strength training going when I can’t get to the gym as often, if at all. I’ll join in with that.” I posted on the comments that I would join in the challenge and then looked at the challenge … Day 1 is OK (I’ve done it) – 10 push ups (yes, I can actually do 10 full push ups now after training with a personal trainer once a week for the past 6 weeks), 50 squats (easy), 15 sit ups, 5 crunches, 5 leg raises (these are a bit more difficult due to still having a weak but flexible back) and hold the plank for 10 seconds (again, easy).

OK, I’m officially mad but I’m going to give it a good go anyway.

You start off on Day 1 doing about 50 Squats and by the end of the 30 Days you get to about 250. I also found an Ab Challenge, again 30 days, with a couple of easy to do exercises on it. (Again doing more…
