Weekly Health Challenge

Let’s get some core strength going on. Nothing makes your back feel stronger than a hard midsection. Stomach exercises boost confidence and improve posture. I like to remind people that taking care of your stomach does more than strengthen muscle tissue, too – a little abdominal work also stimulates the critical organs behind those muscles.

A good round of crunches is good for your skin, circulation, nerves, stress level, digestion and muscles. Three days this week, commit to 5, 10 or 15 minutes of abdominal work – crunches, sit-ups, side crunches, twists, supine lifts, leg raises, Captain’s Chairs – basically, whatever gets you working away at your middle. Adjust the time to your fitness level, and feel free to ask for pointers.

Timely article even though its now 5 years later! Lol. I’ve made great progress overall but my abs are… not doing much. I only do the ab vacuum but I think its time I do some direct exercises.

I’m ready!
