We rarely ever do ab exercises in CrossFit. That's because many of the exercises we do like squats, burpees, box jumps, and pull-ups are compound movements that engage the core — we multitask! But since one of my new year's resolutions is to press into a handstand, I know I need to give my core a little extra attention. I decided to commit to a daily core 100-rep challenge to see what would happen.

In addition to my weekday CrossFit workouts, I did the following ab workout once a day:

The Workout

- 20 scissor abs

- 20 diamond sit-ups

- 20 knees-to-chest hanging from a pull-up bar

- 20 double crunches with (a 30 lb) med ball

  I Took Apple Cider Vinegar Every Day For 1 Week, and These Were the Results I'm not a super adventurous person by any means. Skydiving will never be on my bucket list and I never use hot sauce on my food — ever! But in the name of my physical and mental health, I'm into trying just about anything. I tried CrossFit for a year (and I'm still at it!), and I also committed to drinking a gallon of water a day for three weeks (spoiler alert: there were LOTS of trips to the bathroom).One simple thing I've never tried is taking apple cider vinegar (ACV).

How I Felt

This entire 100-rep ab workout took less than five minutes, so it was quick, but I always felt the burn by the end. Since it took mere minutes, it was an easy habit to incorporate during my day — much easier than doing 20 extra minutes of cardio was. I never felt stressed about making sure I could complete the workout.

Final Thoughts

The appearance of my abs didn't change in the week, but what I did notice was an increase in my strength. By the fifth day, I was able to breeze right through this workout. The knees to chest was the hardest of the five moves and I used to struggle to do eight reps in a row. Now I'm able to do all 20 — hello progress!

As for my goal of pressing into handstand? I'm getting there. I definitely see how focusing on strengthening my core is helping. I'm hooked! I'm definitely going to stick with doing extra ab work at least three times a week since I see that it's actually working.
