Well MNB’ers, it’s been a while since we’ve put your fitness to the test, but we’re feeling more motivated than ever in the workout department, so we thought what better way to channel that energy than to embark on another infamous 30-day challenge? Are you ready for the MNB April Ab Challenge? Brace yourself… literally. 

 

Get set, because it’s time to hustle for that muscle, and we’ll be there every plank of the way to help and support you not just reach your goals, but SMASH them! But this challenge is about so much more than just crunching your way to a coveted six-pack in quest of a bang’in bikini bod. It’s about creating a strong core – that complex set of muscles that extends far beyond just your abs, which when strong enough reduce the risk of injury, improve your posture and generally make it easier to do most physical activity. 

 

We’ve created a FREE downloadable PDF that you can print off and throw in your gym bag or stick on your desk. All month long, we’ll be bringing you a whole lots of tips, tricks and serious ab inspiration to help you stay motivated stick with it. If 21-days is all it takes to create a habit, then you’ll finish this challenge not only with a killer rig, but also a strong core and newfound lease on ab day!
