Zero Crunches #AToZChallenge #BlogchatterA2Z


Tough times don’t last. Tough people do.

Today many of you may be happy that now it is going to end, and this killer freak Anami will not bother with her workouts anymore. And few may miss me, (i guess ??). Do not let this, end your journey to your own healthy self. Keep going. Give this world the new you. Give yourself a new you. Be proud of yourself, because it is the most important thing of all. Slow progress is far better than no progress at all. Trust the process. Today’s pain will become tomorrow’s strength. This month’s choices are next month’s body. Don’t let the coming weekend become your weak end. So just go for it. No one else will come to help you it is only you who will do it. Do not quit. Excercise. Rest. Repeat.

 

Zero Crunches

Lie flat on your back with legs bend from knees. Keep your hands behind the head. Now slowly bring the head up and start making Zeros. Get crunch up to the left, then center and down across the right side. Reverse the crunch from left to right. Repeat.

Start with 50 seconds and increase as per your strength. Keep your abs squeezed up. Gradually, you can increase as per your strength. You may also go for 2 sets of 15 reps.

This is a perfect crunch for your abs and obliques. Remember to keep those abs tight.  Keep it slow and controlled. Keep the hips on the floor.

When can you do ?? Best time for any workout is in the morning. You can also do in evening after at least 4 hours of a heavy meal. Never perform any workout on a full stomach.

Tip of the day

Feed your mind with success and it will definitely come to you. Remember quotes won’t work unless you do. Remember your gut feeling is always right when it says “go work it out” Do not let those excuses take over your mind. Do not rest. Do not let this last day convince your mind of not working out. Keep going, Keep doing, Repeat.

Print this out, fill in your name, and keep yourself accountable.

P.S –

These are just single workouts. Warm up and cool down are not included in this. Know that your body has limits and you should respect it. Do only as much as your body allows you. Little pain is absolutely normal as the muscles stretch, but if you feel more pain then you are doing something wrong. Stop doing it and consult a doctor if necessary. I am not a personal trainer, this is meant to be the inspiration for you as a way to break workout boredom.

  1. You know what, I shared your blog link with my gym trainer and he was like.. when you know all these things why do you waste money in gym. LOL
    I told her, discovered my online trainer just 30 days back….
    Thank you for all your fitness posts. I will start with the fitness regime once back from vacation.
    Congratulations on reaching the finishing line.

    • Thanks a lot ma’am. Yes it was a real challenge for me. With prior travel plans and the dilemma it was all of a sudden decision . I just gave it a try and took one day at a time. Getting with the flow is easier. Taking life as it comes. Thanks again 🙂

    Anami, how will I ever miss you? The pain in my abdominal muscles, aches in my thighs courtesy trying out the exercises you taught us over the month of April, will remind me of you! Juts kidding …
    I want you to know that you have been a great source of inspiration for me to get up from the seat, try out the workouts. I have added quite a few in my daily regime.
    Will miss your dose of positivity.
    Congratulations on completing the challenge, fighting fit! Wishing you a great league of success today and always Anami.

  8. You know I haven’t done any exercises for the past 2 months, one due to anxiety and other due to lack of time and energy. Now that I am settled I have to get back to exercising. I am glad that you compiled 26 exercises here on your blog. I will refer to these for my exercises from today. Today is going to be the day to start.
