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

Easy Isometric Workout

Posted on 04. Oct, 2010 in Fitness

Hold It Right There!

You’re going to love this: One way to get a slimmer figure is by simply standing still. It’s a strength-training style called isometrics, and it’s a great way to sculpt and tone your body.

Here’s how it works: Instead of lifting and lowering your body or a weight, you hold yourself in a fixed spot.  It creates definition while strengthens the smaller muscles and muscle fibers that have to work harder to keep you stabilized.

Do this total-body workout three days a week. Starting with the first exercise, hold the position for 60 seconds, rest for 30 seconds, and then repeat the exercise three to five more times.
