V-ins are one of those difficult exercises that even dedicated fitness enthusiasts might find themselves half-assing when they come up in a workout. If you’re one of them, we get it — they’re absolute core crushers. But if you do them properly and consistently, a stronger and more shredded core is all but guaranteed.

Not sure how to master them? That’s where our 30-day, 100-V-in fitness quest comes in.

This hard-core exercise is a favorite of Oxygen summer 2021 cover star Angela Gargano, who is living proof that it’s effective. The former gymnast and repeat American Ninja Warrior athlete tackles the toughest of obstacles, and every athlete knows that a strong core serves as the base for total-body strength.

On this quest, you’ll start off with just 10 V-ins on Day 1, working up to 100 V-ins uninterrupted on Day 30. Check out the video below for some form tips from Gargano, then stick to the program below to master the V-in once and for all.

Badassery Badge

Think you’re a badass? Want to take it to the next level?

One or two days each week, do a different variation in place of standard V-ins. Try holding a Hollow Hold before doing your V-ins, do them with a towel, try them with straight legs or even weights on your ankles. The more variations you do in a week, the bigger badass you are!

Stay tuned for midpoint and end-of-challenge videos and more Oxygen Fitness Quests at the main quest page.
