  1. Back- 168
    Girl Push-ups – 47
    Sit-ups – 74
    Squat – 93

    Am I supposed to add all those up???

    Really didn't want to do this today after being up all last night sick, but I'm hoping that by doing it anyway, it will boost my energy enough to make it to nap time…

  2. be-163,pu-99,su-116,sq-134

    girl pushups, crunches

  3. be-182 pu-86 su-113 sq-173
    total= 554
    with girly push-ups

    I did 61 more back extensions, 38 more sit-ups, and 50 more squats than I did in April!!

    *Britta- your total is 382

    *Ladies- even if you can only do a few sit-ups, try to start doing them instead of crunches. It will make a big difference. I put my feet under the couch and a small pillow under my back to protect it. You will progress quickly!

  4. be-108
    I'm noticing even my girly pushups are pretty pathetic, but I'm working on getting as low as I can. But I do full sit ups, and I am noticing how much faster I'm getting stronger vs doing crunches in the past.

  5. i'm worried the full situps will bulk up my stomach too much. i want strength there but not bulk…what do you think??

  6. Jodie- I think that a sit-up and a crunch are both utilizing the same ab muscles in the same way (tightening them) but a sit-up exerts much more energy (cario) and better targets the lower abdominals where most us mommies need some tightening. The stronger your core is, the stronger you are at everything else. I wouldn't worry about bulk, but try doing sit-ups for a while and if you start to look too "bulky" for your taste, cut back. 🙂

  7. be- 100, pu-40, su-70, sq-whoops I did lunges and wondered why I was so slow!-but I did 65 lunges. 275 total if I added right?

  8. Pulled this out of archives as a replacement workout;
    PU- 73
    SU-113 (crunch due to tailbone injury)

    Total 416
