New Year, New you! 30 day yoga and ab challenge
30 day yoga and ab challenge to jump start your fitness goals for the new year with your free printable calendar.
Happy New Year everyone! I don’t know about you but I love the start of a new year. I’m not one for making resolutions because I feel like they are made to be broken. What I do love however, is the chance to start fresh and make goals so I can kick some serious butt this year! I can’t think of a better way to start the new year than with your health! I’ve created a 30 day yoga and ab challenge to help jump start your 2018 with a free printable calendar which will keep you on track on a daily basis. This 30 day yoga and ab challenge starts January 1st however you can really start any day of the week you choose! If you miss a day, that’s ok you can always make up for it the next! The calendar is there to help keep you on a realistic schedule that you can stick with. It just takes a few minutes each day!
This 30 day yoga and ab challenge focuses on a different yoga pose and ab exercise that you perform each day designed to work your core while improving your flexibility, strength, mood and overall well being. The calendar is designed to help keep you accountable while making it fun by trying something new every day! Who doesn’t want to tone it up for the new year while having a little fun?
Here is a breakdown of how the 30 day yoga and ab challenge works to keep it simple.
Perform the exercise on each day as instructed by the picture on your calendar. For example, January 1st ( Monday) is downward facing dog. Then on the 2nd (Tuesday) you add the second exercise so you are performing downward facing dog and a plank hold as instructed. You repeat this sequence each day until you reach day 31. This way, you are slowly building up to a full routine, building strength each day. By the end of the challenge you are performing all 31 of the exercises. You will be amazed at how your body responds! Your body will get stronger and exercises that may have been difficult for you in the beginning soon become so much easier!
Here is a breakdown of the rules on how to perform each exercise in the 30 day yoga and ab challenge
Each odd day on the calendar ( starting with the 1st) has a new yoga pose for you to try. Try to hold each pose for a total of 30 seconds for 3-5 rounds. Taking just a short little break in between.
Each even day on the calendar ( starting with the 2nd) has an ab exercise for you to work on. I want to keep things as uncomplicated as possible so here it goes:
- Each time you see a plank exercise you hold it for 30 seconds and repeat 5x ( if the exercise is targeting one side of the body, make sure you perform 5x on each side). If 30 seconds is too much for you, start with 15 seconds and work your way up increasing by 5 seconds each day. If 30 seconds feels comfortable, challenge yourself and work up to 1 minute.
- Each time you see an ab exercise that doesn’t involve a plank: repeat for 3 sets of 15 reps. If the ab exercise is targeting one side, perform 15 on each side. Take a short rest in between sets.
That’s it for the rules, it really is that easy to follow!

I signed up :). This looks fun and exciting, thank you!
yay glad to have you!
I’ve been hearing great things about yoga but just haven’t found an easy way to get started with it. This looks great. Maybe I can learn all the poses I keep hearing people talk about. LOL.
My sister says yoga has really helped her build muscle she’s never had before. Who can’t benefit from that?
Absolutely! I agree! Yoga is amazing for so many reasons and I love the way it has helped me to build my core strength!
I’ve been working out for two years and abs are still my weakest muscle group. Abs in the new year is a goal I can get onboard with, especially over the next few months in prep for the summer!
I agree! Abs are my least favorite body part to work on so I try to make it fun! Yoga has helped to improve my core strength so much!
I have really gained some holiday weight and have been thinking of resuming yoga work-outs… thank you for sharing
You’re welcome! I hope you enjoy the challenge!
What a great resource! I’ve been meaning to find time to do more yoga. And abs, well, who doesn’t have to work on those. Thanks for the tips and challenge.
Thank you! Yes I agree abs are my least favorite body part to work on but yoga really helps!
Awesome to see you are using some yoga to tone abs. Thank you for sharing!
I think yoga is the best way to work your abs and gain core strength! It’s worked wonders for me!
Ok, you made this look really easy and something that I might be able to achieve. I have been wanting to add yoga to my workout routine and this challenge looks easy.
Thanks! I designed it as a way to get into working out for the new year! It’s for all levels!
I love yoga!! what a great way to start the new year!
ME TOO! Thanks so checking it out! Happy New Year!
