Abs 25 Challenge

Welcome to 5.14 Fitness,

This post is going out on as slightly different wave to previous posts, it is part of a new series that I am beginning full of challenges and workouts. This one is a workout challenge designed to improve ab power, six pack definition and muscular endurance.  It is essentially a test to see how many reps of standard sit-ups in multiples of 25; hence the name. 

So lets jump right into the work out.

1 set (25 seconds rest between each set of reps- each bullet point-)
  • 100 sit ups
  • 75 sit ups
  • 50 sit ups
  • 25 sit ups
According to how many full sets of each workout depends the participants level of ability:
  • 1 set = novice
  • 2 sets = beginner
  • 3 sets = intermediate
  • 5 sets = expert
  • 5+ sets= bodybuilder
This workout is a great way to really work your abdominals generally in one big workout, I have been doing this for about 2 weeks now and I am already loving the results. My upper/middle abs in particular are where I have been feeling the most work happening, and I can physically feel a loss of belly fat in that region therefore an improvement in definition.

However, I would not advise to complete this workout more than twice a week, as it offers you little in variation, but it could accompany the general ab workout or the belly fat buster due to a deeper variety in exercises that tone and work different areas in a similar region or area. I would do it  simply for something different to ensure your abs stay worked and do not get used to or familiar with a certain routine that they do not adjust to find that workout easy or to stop them from getting weaker as they are not being challenged.

So guys thanks for a fantastic week, please share this with your friends, following is returned, if you have not already add it to your blogger reading list, any plus ones or comments are also welcomed, thanks for reading more posts coming soon, so please come again-work hard and peace!
