This blog post serves as a how-to guide for those who wish to learn the proper way to squat and plank.  I just did my squats and I am burning, baby!  Yeah!  Now time for a Green Smoothie with some hemp protein!

Check out this woman’s before-and-after photo…inspiring!  If you want to really see the results on yourself, consider taking a “Before” photo today.  I had my hubby take mine in my favorite bikini bottom.  I can’t wait to see the “After!”  Take a frontal before photo, too, as the planking will trim our bellies.  And remember to sweat every day as well.  Cardio is good for the heart.  A short run or power walk will do.

Let’s get toned for Summer…and beyond!

Our starting date: Thursday, June 20.
Our ending date: Friday, July 19 (but who says we’re going to suddenly stop on this day?)

Here’s a great video to teach you how to complete a proper squat.  Remember, if you have back, leg or knee trouble, please talk to your doctor before joining me these next 30 days.

And here is how you complete a proper plank.  Yes, you will feel it all over your body!

    Warning, I did these challenges for more than 30 days have symetric damaged ulna nerves and hamstring tendinitis. Too much repetition is a bad thing.
