We haven’t done any training for this challenge, but just to make our quest for six packs a little harder we have over eaten and put on a few more pounds on our recent family holiday!
Upping our game a bit
Our challenge is going really well so far. One month in and Jonathan and I are enjoying staying motivated each day and have noticed such a difference in how it feels when we are doing our sit-ups. We started off by doing them in 4 sets of 25, which we could really feel the muscle burn by the end of each set. We are now able to do 100 sit ups in 2 sets of 50 and with much less burn! Somedays we have even doubled our 100 to 200, as we felt like we could do with upping our game a bit! We are aiming to be able to do our sit ups in 1 set of 100 very soon.
Our abs aren’t physically looking as defined as we would like yet, but we definitely feel our core strength is much better, which is great!
Jonathan and I have decided to take up the EPDA Parkinson’s 100 Challenge by setting ourselves a goal that will really push us on a daily basis. We have decided to try to complete 100 sit ups a day for 100 days. Neither of us are gym buffs so this is something that really doesn’t come naturally! We both need to tone up and turn our beer keg bellies into 6 packs.
We are hoping to stay motivated and complete this gruelling challenge, spurred on knowing that we are raising money for the EPDA, to help continue supporting people with Parkinson’s across Europe.
