Two Hundred Sit-Ups App Review
Health and Fitness have become such a major part of my life in the past couple of months that I decided I wanted to share my great finds, not so great finds, opinions on what works for me, and anything else I think might be helpful. I’m going to start posting a weekly fitness review (as long as I don’t run out of things to review) every Wednesday.
Today I am reviewing a program called two hundred sit-ups. I found this program through the app store on my iPhone. The great thing is for those that do not own iPhone’s or want to pay for the app the program is online as well.
Many people have commented over the months about the number of sit-ups I do, and remark on how they could never do that. I currently do 500 sit-ups during a “sit-up session”. I tell them anyone can do it you just have to work up to it. This is where two hundred sit-ups comes in. It is a great program that anyone can do, you can start with just 1 sit-up and go from there. (Note: when I say sit-ups I am talking a crunch, they no longer recommend a full sit-up).
This program is a 6 week program designed to go from 1 sit-up to 200 consecutive sit-ups. You do the program three days a week with a day of rest in between. There are three levels so you can start where you most feel comfortable, and increase your level as you build strength. You can log your sit-ups right at the site with the sit-ups logger. By logging your sit-ups you can see how far you have come, where you want to be, and how long you have to get there. If you are a Facebook poster like many of us are, you can now connect via Facebook. Here are some of the benefits
- Log in or sign up via your Facebook account, with just one click! No need to type in any extra information
- See a list of your Facebook friends who are also doing the challenge.
- Publish updates to your Facebook account when you complete a workout or an exhaustion test.
- Chat on each other’s profile pages.
- Plus much more to come..
For me personally I used my iPhone application which auto posted each time I finished a workout. It posted to Twitter and Facebook. I could also go into the log and see each day how many I did and also see a graph of my progress. Even better I can’t tell you how strong my stomach has become, and when you increase your muscle strength in your abs your back benefits as well. I can feel the difference in doing just simple things like walking, bending, and picking up my young daughter.
I highly recommend this program to anyone who wants to strengthen their over all core muscles and accomplish something they may have once thought was not possible! This is a great program to add on to any fitness routine. In the beginning you will only need a couple minutes, as you progressively get stronger and do more sit-ups it will take you a little more time, but usually never more then 20 minutes.
I would love to hear if you have started this program, or are going to start the program. I would love to follow your progress! If you will be posting via Facebook or Twitter please let me know so I can follow you.
