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!

Doing russian twists instead of crunches but now on 65. My kness hurt during squats so do them in 20 set intervals. .

I'm in starting today. I've done a lot of sitting on my arse recently. Might get DH involved he's starting to look a bit flat in the arse department.

ijustwanttobeme I always get neck ache too, I keep watching videos to get the technique correct but I just can't seem to do it! And getting my shoulder blades off the ground is an impossibility just now.

Ok day 3, just did 65 squats watching toddlers and tiaras after picking ds up from school. Find watching tv keeps my head up.
Am dreading the crunches : hence I'm on Mn instead : will prob have to split them. Have not been able to do them in one go.

65 of each yesterday and legs are a bit achy this morning. How's everyone else getting on?

On 65 today. Not sure I'm doing the squat right as not been that achey. Going to try and get down a bit lower next time.

Where are you all?? I'm on 105 now and ..... have lost 5cm from my bum and 3 from my stomach. I have combined it with a diet but then just knacker me now and don't leave me with a sore bum after.
