Greetings challengers, I hope you’re raring to go?

Please remember to stretch before and after your workout as well as hydrating. Both very important for your body and overall fitness.

Abdominal Hold

With your back straight and your abs engaged, hold in the position for a minute. Rest for thirty seconds and do this three times in total.

    • Hi Jo

      Thanks for your question, it’s good to stretch all over generally, but later today on the tab that will magically appear at the top of the page I have demonstrated some stretches for the back and stomach areas. 🙂

  1. Can you suggest an alternative for the mountain climbers? My hip is injured at the moment and bending my leg up aggregates it. Would another plank variation work?

    • Hi Laura

      Thanks for your question, if you plank from extended arm then drop to forearm and back up again? If not a static plank position is also good (more intense) I hope that’s okay for you? If not, find me in DM on Twitter xx

      For those that don’t follow me, I’m @Angel_Deelight
