30-Day Muffin Top Challenge

30-Day Muffin Top Challenge

In order to tone and trim it all, you have to work your belly on all sides. Our 30 day muffin top challenge is designed to hit your belly at all angles.

Muffin tops go all the way around our midsections, and overshadow our waistlines. In order to tone and trim the entire abdominal area, it’s important to perform exercises that target all angles. Our 30-Day Muffin Top Challenge is designed to hit the obliques and ab muscles.

This challenge has 4 workout components to help transform your abs. It includes a fast paced tabata series to burn fat, a full target ab workout, and a plank and yoga series to tighten and strengthen the core muscle. In 30 days, you’ll burn excess fat and reveal more toned abs.

NOTE: Be sure to drink plenty of water and eat clean for the duration of this challenge.

Equipment Needed: yoga mat or soft surface, interval timer (Gymboss is a free app download).

What to Do: For the next 30 days, perform the challenge as follows:
Day 1 – Tabata
Day 2 – Rest
Day 3 – Abs
Day 4 – Rest
Day 5 – Plank Series
Day 6 – Rest
Day 7 – HardCORE Yoga

Repeat in the same order as above for the remainder of the 30 days.

You decide when to start, just be sure to rest on non-workout days.
