A thread for those of us wanting to tone up a bit after the weight loss!
I've downloaded the 30 day an challenge app mentioned on the BC thread. Also going to do push ups as I was getting better at these until I gave up my martial arts lessons. One day I will do a full one, still only able to go halfway down...

Should day AB challenge.

Gammeldragz Sat 04-Nov-17 10:50:33

Just done mine but I think I started too low at beginner level 1

SayrraT Sat 04-Nov-17 11:31:19

I've done beginner level 1 ab and butt challenge but I also think I should start at a higher level. I might start level 2 instead.

Day 1 of 30 - done

SayrraT Sat 04-Nov-17 11:34:08

So I'm going to do

Beginner level 2 abs and butt
Beginner level 1 push up

My plan is to run every second day (been doing this for 6 weeks so I'm hoping it's an established habit now). Tomorrow I start a strength training programme at the gym to be done on my non-running days. I've also downloaded the app, though haven't worked out how to use it yet, but I plan to use that to specifically focus on abs. I think they are in there, somewhere, but have been awol for a long time!

I'm joining in. #ambitious blush

Thanks for the thread ragz, still need to do day 1 but I will!

ClearEyesFullHearts Sat 04-Nov-17 13:14:44

Having looked through the many apps, I've decided to do the Abs, Arms, and Butt challenges for 30 days, starting at Beginner Level 1 for all.

I already do treadmill incline walking at a fast pace every day for an hour (will never become a runner). I also do Pilates once a week.

This will be quite a lot of regular exercise but I'm determined to do it every day and see what results that gives.

Unlike many, I do have the time in my day to devote to this, so no excuses.

Now, to pick a start day... confused

ClearEyesFullHearts Sat 04-Nov-17 13:16:14

Oh, wanted to ask those of you who have done the Abs already, about how long did it take?

These seem like the Beginner Level would be no more than 15 minutes or so. Does that sound about right?

Obviously more at Intermediate and Advanced, as doing more reps.

I'm going to join this and start later today after I've put my son to bed. There, I've said it, I have to do it now!

Mimosa1 Sat 04-Nov-17 15:13:39

Marking my place ! My goal is to do a Pilates DVD a few times a week and walk to work.

Rshard Sat 04-Nov-17 15:20:00

Day 1 complete!

Mimosa1 Sat 04-Nov-17 15:22:16

What app are you guys using? I like the idea of an ab challenge.

DropDeadShred Sat 04-Nov-17 16:30:40

I'm not doing the official boot camp (Don't tell BIWI) but am low carbing and I've also started doing the 30 Day Shred before I go on a big holiday in 4 weeks. 30DS is pretty hard core but I pissed about over the summer and didn't lose the weight I wanted to, and I've heard it gets drastic results.

I'm doing it over 6 weeks in total, 5 days a week, and I'm already 13 days in. I'm doing Level 2 and today will be day 4 of that level. Have been taking progress pics and might post them if I get a good result at the end.

It bloody hurts so it better be worth it. Hoping to lose a dress size

Gammeldragz Sat 04-Nov-17 16:41:37

Right, switched to beginner level 2 and done today's. Only took 5 minutes.
I need the push up one too I think, but low on storage space on my phone.

ClearEyesFullHearts Sat 04-Nov-17 16:45:22

Excellent, ragz. Five minutes is nothing really. I should easily be able to fit And, Arms, and Butt into my schedule.

Starting tomorrow or Monday. Probablyonday so I don't have the Live Audience factor for those first few days. grin

ClearEyesFullHearts Sat 04-Nov-17 17:00:14

<makes note to always use Preview function> blush

Gammeldragz Sat 04-Nov-17 17:06:16

Live audience is amusing. I just did mine on the living room floor. 11 year old son looks up from his tablet, peers down at me and goes "what on earth are you doing?".

Kleptronic Sat 04-Nov-17 17:10:54

I went cycling.

Rshard Sat 04-Nov-17 17:35:39

mimosa I put 30 day an challenge into the search box on App Store and picked the second one because I liked the turquoise. I’m doing beginner level 2

Gammeldragz Sat 04-Nov-17 17:53:34

The one I'm doing looks like this when it's open.

ClearEyesFullHearts Sat 04-Nov-17 18:27:38

what on earth are you doing grin

And your reply...?

ClearEyesFullHearts Sat 04-Nov-17 18:31:52

Mimosa it's the one by Josic Productions.

Love the deep research that went into choosing best Abs app...Rshard likes turquoise. hmm

I'm feeling fat and flabby after the weighloss, definitely going to start this.
