Flexible Spirit

So the month of crunches is over and I got 60 crunches. One less than the beginning of the month but that’s ok. I excelled at the beginning of the month so 1 less isn’t that bad.

Now we move on to flexibility. I tried this position in the picture and it didn’t end pretty. I won’t be able to do it by the end of the month either but I can improve my flexibility. Tomorrow I will be administering my first test. It should be interesting.

Better late than never

crunches[1]He makes it look so simple doesn’t he? I almost did as well. Coming back for this challenge I surprised myself. I got 61 crunches in a minute. Based on the chart that’s an excellent rating. Even better than that is that I did 55 on my initial assessment 1 year ago and 57 at the end of the month!

That’s one hell of an improvement and I’m not sure how I can do better but of course I’ll try. And in the process I’ll be strengthen my core which as they say will help benefit everything else.

Since I didn’t record myself doing it, here’s a girl that looks much at it than I do demonstrating proper technique.

January Assessment

I’m a little late with this but I’ve completed my assessment for the month on Sunday and I did pretty damn good.

I knocked out 55 in 53 seconds before I bowed out. Looks like I’m pretty close to the goal.  I didn’t think it was physically possible to do 60 crunches in 60 seconds but I guess I was wrong.

Now that there’s not too much room for improvement but I’m going to shoot for 62.  No need to aim any lower.
