Welcome to Day 1 of The Stomach Vacuuming Challenge!
Before I get started in explaining how it went today some of you are just finding out about this right now and have no clue what I’m talking about. To learn what stomach vacuuming is click here to read my post.
So now that you know what it is, a lot of people are for it and some are against it. Some say it will take inches off your waistline. Then you have the personal trainer who has like 50 people that like his page with no engagement telling you it does absolutely nothing for you. Who do we listen to? Yourself!
These challenges are all about seeing it first hand for yourself not by what someone says works or doesn’t work. So for the next 30 days we will be doing stomach vacuuming exercises every day before or after abs or a combination of the two. On the Total Body core machine it has 6 exercises.
- Knee ups
- Low plank
- Side crunch to left
- Side crunch to right
- High plank forward (like the wheel)
- Knee ups but on your toes
We will do these exercises every day. Each exercise for 10 reps starting at #1 and then going back up from the bottom for a total 110 reps.
Day 1 – I Could Feel It!
I did three sets prior to the ab exercises. So I took a took deep breathe and exhaled as much as I could and then sucked in my belly button to my low back. I had one hand flat on my stomach and the other on my low back. This helped me focus on the technique. I could only hold it in for like 10 seconds. Pretty bad.
After the first set I could feel it in my obliques. I can see how holding it in longer with proper form can help build the muscles. I could really tell that I was weak and have not worked on my transverse in a very long time. This will be a great 30 day Fit Buster Challenge. Pretty excited for this one.
