Live Big 30 Day Challenge: Day 25

It's day 25 of your Live Big 30 Day Challenge.

You are back to strength training today. As usual, start out with a 10-minute warm up of your choice.

Usually Ali mixes up her strength training exercises. This keeps you from getting bored and your body from getting used to your workout. But today you are going to repeat that very first strength circuit you did on the Live Big 30 Day Challenge -- so that you can compare the amount of reps you were able to do on the first day to how many you can do today. You're going to be surprised!

When you are warmed up, you can start the workout. Do each of the following exercises for one minute and do as many as you can within that minute. When you finish the set, rest for one minute and then do four more sets. When you are finished you will have completed five sets.

Squats
When doing squats you want your feet to be shoulder width apart. If you think about keeping the weight in your heels and your toes up, it'll help make sure that your knees don't go past your toes when you sit back into your squat. Squatting down until your thighs are parallel with the floor and then back up is the move.

Lunges
When you think about doing lunges, start with your feet together. You're going to be stepping forward as far as you can, making sure your back is straight. Once you step forward you're going to bend down until your leg is parallel with the floor. Step back into the starting position and repeat with the opposite leg.

Ankle twists
Stand with your legs together and you're going to take one leg and make a 90-degree angle with it bent. Then you're going to take that arm and reach across your body, squatting down and touching the outside of your other foot.

Planking
Lie face down, rest your upper body on your forearms with your palms flat on the floor. Tuck your toes under and lift your hips and torso off the floor so that your weight is on your forearms and toes. Keep your spine parallel to the floor. Hold the plank for 60 seconds.

Crunches
Lying on your back with your knees bent, feet flat on the floor with your toes pointed forward, placing your hands behind your head, draw your navel towards your spine and slowly curl up your head, neck and shoulders off the floor towards your thighs.
