June 21 CHALLENGE — Lunge with Planks

Posted on 20. Jun, 2011 in Exercises

EXERCISE:

How did you do on the push-up challege a few weeks ago? Still trying to keep up? How about a LUNGE CHALLENGE with a little bit of core?

So, this is how it works:

1. The first segment of the challenge is lunges. EVERY DAY LUNGE for 2 MINUTES ..for 7 days. You time yourself to see how many of the daily move you can bust out, then keep your score. It can be stationary, walking, side, you name it.

2. The second part is easy. You drop and hit the plank position, til failure. I don’t care if you do it on forearms or arms fully extended. The key here is keep your core tight, back straight as an arrow and hold it UNTIL FAILURE! Note your time and track it.

3. This is for 7 (SEVEN) days…one week. You are going to get a little diversity with the lunges, but some stability at the same time with the planks not changing. After the 7 days are up, we are going to do a REPEAT performance of the entire thing. You should see some improvement in the second half of the challenge. Keep track and email your results at the end of the challenge. There will be a raffle after July 10. See if you are the winner!

So it is pretty straight forward. If you have any questions AT ALL, feel free to ask away!

Start Date: June 21st

End Date: July 5th

I apologize for the tardiness of the tips this week, however there is a valid excuse. Four fabulous days on the Central California Coast with just my husband, exploring places we have never seen before.  If you get the opportunity to travel to the Central Coast (Santa Barbara, Avila Beach, San Luis Obispo, Seashell Scape, Chumash Lake, etc.), just start packing and go-go-go.
