It requires no equipment, you can do it at home, you don't even need to get changed (unless you're wearing jeans)

So it works like this, everyday for 30 days you do a certain amount of squats/crunches which gradually increase.

This is my third time doing it and it really really works! Squats are amazing for toning the bum, thighs, abs and crunches really focus the abs.

My routine is usually to do it at night whilst watching TV, so you don't even need to leave the living room!

So day 1 starts with 50 squats and 50 crunches, you can do them in sets of 10 or split them through the day 25 in the morning 25 at night....or do them all at once!

It increases by 5 everyday with a rest day every 3 days.

So who wants to join me? We can all check in with each other each night and shout at each other to get it done.

It truly only takes 20 mins at most, the hardest part is getting up to do it in the first place but you'll feel so much better afterwards!

I'll post some links to proper squat/crunch form in a minute!

Pantone363 Wed 28-Aug-13 19:34:35

Welcome welcome...

Honestly the hardest bit is getting up off the sofa (and day 3, day 3 hurts!)

But you'll be surprised how easy it gets and you'll soon be up to 100 odd! And have buns of steel grin

MNHQ need to give us a tight bum emoji

TrinityRhino Wed 28-Aug-13 21:10:26

ok I'm starting tomorrow
sorry, I sound like I'm already being crap but I would rather be honest than pretend I've done it

HavingAnOffDAy Wed 28-Aug-13 21:19:07

I'll join. I'm starting low carb too so in for a penny in for a pound!

Will have to start tomorrow though as I've just finished dinner & don't fancy doing crunches after that.

Will do the s/s tomorrow too as I'm on my phone.

If I don't, hunt me down & make me sign up!! grin

HavingAnOffDAy Wed 28-Aug-13 21:20:26

Oh, I thought the links were to spreadsheets shock

Pantone363 Wed 28-Aug-13 22:19:25

All you tomorrow starters, the first days the hardest!

OK, I might be in too. I'm stupidly bad at keeping to any exercise regime, but I really really ought to try.
