Our 30 DAY AB CHALLENGE challenge starts Monday, April 1st, in The Hollywood Trainer Club! Let’s start off April with a bang! Grab a friend & join us! The purpose of this challenge is to encourage you to commit to 30 days of total body workouts with an extra emphasis on the abs! We have incorporated Cardio, Sculpting, Exercise Ball, Pilates, Running, Sprint Intervals, Kickboxing, Yoga, Strength Training and Sports Drills to challenge your core for maximum results. By using various methods of training that use your abdominal muscles in all the planes of motion the body will be consistently challenged over the next 30 days to help you achieve incredible results. All of our workouts offer instruction for beginners to advance so everyone is welcome. There are 5 workouts per week so you can do all 5 in a row or plan them in your week to fit your schedule! Let’s get started!
Here’s the breakdown:
Week 1 FIRE UP ABS: The goal is to get you to focus on engaging the core. We will review the muscles of the core, rectus abdominus (the six pack), internal and external obliques, serratus anterior, transverse abdominus (the deep muscle that act as a corset pulling in your low belly and supporting your lower back), erector spinae muscles (muscles which line the spine) and lumbar muscles (muscles of the lower back). We will also focus on all the movements of the core, flexion, extension, lateral flexion and rotation. The goal is to make sure you know how to engage all of the core muscles so you feel them working through all of the planes of motion. You would be surprised how often people think they are doing core exercises and they do not feel their core working at all because they are not properly engaging their core muscles.
Week 2 AB SMASH: Now that you’ve learned the movements and muscle groups of the core and you FEEL them working it’s time to INCREASE THE INTENSITY so that you get more results!
Week 3 CARDIO ABS: You can’t get those lean sexy abs without burning off the layer of fat that might be on top of them. The only way to burn body fat is by having a calorie negative at the end of the day so adding cardio to your program and healthy eating in proper portion sizes will help you maximize your calorie burn. We need more calories going out and less calories coming in to maximize your fat burning. The goal is to have a calorie negative of -500 to -1000 by the end of the day so you can burn 1-2lbs per week. All the workouts this week will incorporate cardio to help you increase your calorie burn so you can maximize your fat burning! We will also be giving you nutrition tips to keep you on track and don’t forget your healthy meal plans and healthy recipes are already in The Hollywood Trainer Club just click on “Meals” and “Meal Calendar” to schedule your healthy meals for the week! Proper meal planning is always a win!
Week 4 BLAST THE BELLY FAT: Yes it’s time to take it up another level and add both Strength Training and Ball Exercises to your weekly workouts to maximize your belly fat burning results! The combination of Core Focused Ball Exercises, Cardio and Strength Training will increase your calorie burn while focusing on the core/abdominal muscles. By taking away the stability of the floor and performing your abdominal/core exercises on the unstable exercise ball your ab/core muscles will work harder and you will recruit and fire more muscle fibers!
Week 5 POWER ABS: The core has both fast twitch and slow twitch muscles fibers. Power Abs is all about recruiting the fast twitch muscle fibers with power moves to help you maximize your fat burning and give you a stronger more functional core. A strong, flexible & functional core will also decrease your risk of injury while enjoying your other sports & daily activities.
Week 6 ULTIMATE 6-PACK: It’s time to take everything we have learned and increase the FUN FACTOR!
