Last week I started a 7-day challenge for myself: complete 100 repetitions per day of a single exercise (per day) between Jan. 1 and Jan 7. I invited others to participate, but am not sure if anyone did.
Now it's seven days later, and dang, that was not easy. In fact, I have to admit, I did some of the day's exercises the weenie way, and finished them a day late a few times. But I did all 700 reps! Which makes me a winner, and eligible for this honorable distinction:
And I feel great. So then I got to thinking; why can't my friends and family try it too? Why not plan a 7-day challenge that everyone can participate in, including anyone who doesn't do these exercises on a regular basis, or has never tried them?
So you're in?!
Oh, right, right, right. The exercises.
Ok, here we go:
Monday, Jan. 11: 25 Push-ups
Tuesday, Jan. 12: 25 Sit-Ups
Wednesday, Jan. 13: 25 Back lunges (per leg)
Thursday, Jan. 14: 25 Burpees
Friday, Jan. 15: 25 Dips
Saturday, Jan. 16: 25 Inchworms
Sunday, Jan. 17: 25 Superpersons
NOW you're wondering, "Well I can't do push-ups, so I'm off the hook." Wrong. I will be posting numerous modifications (i.e.: do your push-ups against the wall) for each exercise, as well as video instructions for each exercise. So EVERYBODY can do it!
What I need from you: tell me "I'm In!"
Write a comment (or email me [apkoski(at)gmail(dot)com] if you don't want to create a Google account required for leaving comments) containing those or similar words, do the exercises with me throughout the week, and at the end of the week I will present you with your very own Button/Certificate.
