  • What is the FIT GIRL challenge?

It is a challenge that we launched together on Instagram and which focus on women’s biggest headache: belly, butt and legs.

Each week of March, we will propose a workout composed of 4 exercises which focus on a specific area.  

For this first week of the FIT GIRL challenge, we focus on abdominal muscles.

Here are some explanations on how to perform each exercise.

Muscles: Abdominals

Material: a yoga mat (optional)

Can be done easily at home. So no excuses girls !!

To do: Perform each exercise for 30 to 50 seconds depending on your level, take 10 seconds of rest between each exercise. Repeat this routine 3 times. Do the routine at least 5 times a week.

  • Exercises details:

1) Russian Twist: Sit with the upper body leaning slightly back, legs slightly bent and arms stretching  forward, perpendicular to your torso. Turn your torso slightly to the left then to the right. Make sure to keep your back straight.

2) Pedalo: Lying on your back, keep you lower abs tight. Lift feet off the ground and bend your knees slightly less than 90 degrees from your trunk. Perform a slow pedaling motion. Make sure that the bottom of your abs stay tight and flat – (Put one hand on your lower belly during the exercise to check). The movement must be slow and controlled for better efficiency.

3) Crunch on the side: Standing position, bring your knee to your elbow. Be sure to contract your abs and stay straight. Do on both side.

4) Side plank: Lie on the side, and lift your body by resting on your forearm. Make sure your elbow is aligned with your shoulder and head, shoulder and hips are aligned. Lift your hips by contracting your abdominal muscles, then lower your hips and return to starting position. Do on both side.

  1. Ludy, I love this collaboration! I started your fitgirlchallenge this week, so I am a week behind. Can I do both sequences together? (week1+week2?)

    Btw, I became accro of the “Crunch on the side” exercise, it looks so funny but that makes it easier to do it. Merci ma belle! xo

    1. Coucou Heidi! So happy that you are joining the challenge :) Yes sure, you can do both at the same time. It is even better!! If you find the crunch on the side a bit challenging at the beginning, just keep the position on the side for few seconds. You will increase difficulty when you core muscles will get stronger.
      Bon courage et bisous!!
