This is a post I’ve been excited to write for a while. I’ve been behind the scenes working on my monthly fitness challenges for my @crunchesforpizza Instagram. And TODAY is finally the day that I’m able to share the first challenge with you. The Crunchesforpizza Ab Challenge. We’ll be working towards a TWO MINUTE PLANK in this month’s challenge!
These are monthly 30 Day Challenges focusing on a different body part each month. I did a little poll over on Instagram and most of you voted Abs so I thought this would be a good starting point. But we have so much more to come including Glutes, Arms and Legs, even a challenge dedicated to inner thighs as this came up a lot in my Instagram polls. We also have some equipment challenges for gym goers coming later in the year.
I love a challenge. I thrive off challenge. I succeed with challenge. But I’m pretty rubbish at motivating myself to workout and thrive so much more when I have someone keeping me accountable. Which is why I wanted to create these challenges for us to do together, and keep each other accountable throughout.
In this months challenge we will start with a 10 second plank and work our way to a 2 minute plank and 100 crunches. Including many sit-ups, v sits, leg lifts, straight leg sit ups and Russian twists along the way. If you’re stuck with any of the exercises just give them a quick Google but I will be demonstrating them all on my Instagram as of course I’ll be doing the challenge with you.
These challenges will take as little as 2 minutes out of your day but I can promise you they are so worth it. Obviously I’ve already tested this challenge and could not believe that I could do a two minute plank after struggling with a 20 second one a few weeks before!
Remember to take some before photos before you start, you’ll be amazed how many changes you’ll see from just a few minutes a day.
If you’re looking for some new activewear for this challenge Tennis HQ have some fab pieces, although they specialise in Tennis wear I find many items can be used between different sports, especially this pink long sleeve jacket which is currently 25% off.
We’ll be starting this challenge together from the 1st June over on the @crunchesforpizza Instagram so make sure you’ve saved your copy of the challenge to refer to and join in with the hashtag #cfpabchallenge. If you’re having trouble saving the image feel free to email me at email@example.com and I will email you a copy.
Who’s ready to start the Crunchesforpizza Ab Challenge tomorrow?
Until next time,

Working with a fitness challenge could make it easy to actually follow the routine without stopping in the middle. I finished my first month gyming and oh my, I feel much fit but without an instructor or challenge, I’d not been disciplined enough.
Good luck lovely!

This sounds like a fun challenge for able-bodies who are up to taking this on. I may not be able to participate in this but I do know several people who love a good physical fitness challenge. I’ll spread the word.

I wish I still had the strength to do these exercises. I will share them with my daughter though. She still has to lose that baby weight from her last pregnancy.

I love your fitness challenge I’ve been trying to do some exercise at home but I could never get myself into that, that’s a great list
Thank you! I’m sure you’ll manage it!
That looks like a tough challenge! I need to get into better shape though so I probably should give it a try.
Good luck with it! Such a quick challenge to fit into your day!

Hats off to you. I have tried planking and it is super hard work. What a great challenge!
I still struggle but I’m glad I can do a 2 minute one!

The AB challenge, I think I will try this in other to keep me fit before heading to the office every morning.
Do you think I will able to follow up with it for 30 days? That is really too much for me. 🙂
I’m sure you’ll manage fine! Good luck with it!
