I’m excited I had such an awesome group of people that joined me for the 500 challenge I put up in the last post! Honestly I always want to get my abs ripped but am highly susceptible to slacking off with the core moves. So I am glad I had this challenge to hold me accountable and for everyone else to also!
My workout was 30 minutes of high resistance elliptical (incline:15, resistance:12-14) and then I hit the gym floor for my abs session.
Here is how my 500 abs broke down:
- 100 hanging leg abs
- 25 crunches with med ball
- 25 oblique crunches with med ball on right
- 25 oblique crunches with med ball on left
- 25 straight leg crunches w/ med ball
- 50 bicycle crunches
- 50 suitcase crunches
- 25 toe touches
- 25 heel to heel touches
- 50 jackknifes
- 50 russian twists with med ball
- 50 alternating leg lifts
And that was it! I threw in about 50 extra bicycle crunches at the end just for good measure in case I counted wrong.
Now I’m excited to go check out how everyone else did! Below you can find the links of others who participated (or their twitter handles or names if they don’t have a blog) in the challenge. If I left anyone out just leave your name/blog link in the comments below 🙂

So glad tomorrow is Friday. I topped off my night with a yummy dinner…salmon salad made with reduced fat olive oil mayo and chopped celery over a bed of baby kale.
So easy to make and so good. Now off to relax as usual before getting in bed. I am really sleepy!!! Have a nice night 🙂
