It’s that time again, mes amis. Time to throw it down and announce my monthly goals. Without further ado, I present you with my June challenges:
1. 30 Day Arm Challenge:
Last month I squatted my heart out in the hopes of getting a Bombshell Bottom. It’s only fair that this month I put my focus on upper body, with a special focus on arms. It is tank top season, after all.
This challenge is comprised of just 3 moves, which you practice four days in a row, with every 5th day being a day of rest. The 3 moves are: Push-ups, Planks and Chair Dips.
There were many great 30-day arm challenges I could have chosen, but I selected this one because it doesn’t require the use of dumbbells. With my upcoming travel, I’ll find myself having to do my challenges in hotel rooms. This being a bodyweight-only program, there are no excuses for not gettin’ ‘er done. So I shall. Get ‘er done, that is.
2. Bruce Lee Challenge:
My friends Sam and Helen turned me onto this site: neilarey.com, which features tons of great bodyweight exercise programs and monthly challenges. Since I haven’t been doing any kickboxing workouts lately I glommed onto the Bruce Lee Challenge right away.
The other thing I like about it is that it’s bodyweight only; I can do it anywhere.
On the downside, I think things might get a little cray-cray on the days when both Bruce Lee and the Arm Challenge require me to do push-ups, but hey…no one said this was supposed to be easy, right?
3. More Movement:
While I’ve been working out 6-7 times per week in 2014, what I haven’t been doing consistently is moving throughout the day. A job has definitely put a damper on the quantity of my movement.
My goal for June is to hit a minimum of 10,000+ steps per day for at least 24 of the 30 days in June.
This will require taking actual lunch breaks (ones where I walk places) and moving more than just from the table I work at (I work from home) to the fridge for a refill of water or the toilet (to empty said water). I’m learning that just a scheduled workout – even if it’s daily – is not enough movement for me.
June is the month where I address this sedentary lifestyle I’ve reverted back into since I started working again. Wish me luck on this one, I’m gonna need it.
So that wraps up my June challenges: Arms, Bruce Lee and Busta Move…Walk!
