Core Challenge

Ready to take the iTwixie Core Challenge?

Here’s how:
1. Straighten a 5 foot-long rope in front of you on the floor or grass.
2. Walk along the rope, barefoot, heel to toe to get the idea of how that feels.
3. Then take a light book and put it on your head.
4. Now, walk along the rope, heel to toe, with your head held high and straight, tighten your core muscles, and DON”T DROP THE BOOK!

Can you do it? Tell us right here!

When you write how YOU completed the Strong Core Challenge, you automatically earn the Strong Core Challenge Achievement. It’s that easy.

Do this challenge 3 times over the next two weeks, for about 15 minutes. See if you can touch your toes without dropping the book — that is so hard — and you’ll see how you can feel your core muscles getting stronger and stronger.

On May 13, we will announce all the girls who have unlocked the Strong Core Challenge Achievement! You will feel so strong… have fun!

So, how did it go? Was this hard to do? Did it make you giggle?

Strong Biceps
April 1, 2013

by Anika Malone

When you make a muscle in your arm, you can see your biceps (say: BYE-seps).  So take iTwixie’s Biggest GAINER Challenge! It’s easy!

Just tell your iTwixie BFFs 3 ways you used your biceps this week. Did you help put away groceries? You used your biceps! Did you carry books at school? You used your biceps! Did you bounce a basketball? You used your biceps! It’s that easy… so how did you use your biceps this week?

Here’s the thing: you cannot build really big bicep muscles until you are a teenager. Did you know that? But that doesn’t mean you cannot get stronger. So see how you can gain strength in your biceps this week!

Every girl who writes down 3 ways she used her biceps this week will earn a Biceps Achievement award :)

Let’s all get moving those biceps and GAIN strength!

Biggest Gainer for MEGA March
by University of the Fraser Valley

Here is the winning entry for iTwixie’s Biggest Gainer for MEGA March:

@lubist   “I once gained confidence by taking that giant leap to go talk to someone. I’m quite shy offline and it get’s hard for me to talk to new people that I find interesting. So I took a deep breath, closed my eyes, took a step forward and said “Hi!” ; And that day I made a new friend and gained some confidence”

Congratulations to you, @lubist!  What a great story that we can all relate to (and try ourselves!)
