I Challenge You To Challenge Me

Sunday, December 02, 2012

Hi Spark friends!

I find myself feeling a little lazy today and would love your help and inspiration to snap me out of it. I have also been trying to mix up my workouts recently to keep them fresh.

How can you help? How about leaving me a comment with workout suggestions? It can be your favorite SP video, a quick strength exercise, cardio, on the floor, on the elliptical or treadmill, with the ball, resistance band, dumbbells.... I know the options are endless.

I thought this might be a fun way to try some new things or even just new combinations. If I get enough suggestions, maybe you will carry me through the week.

Don't be shy now...challenge me to do something and I will be sure to let you know when I do it and how I did.

Going to go change out of my PJs now (after all it is noon LOL) so that I'm ready to get moving.

Thanks for your ideas!

p.s. Of course you should feel free to do these moves along with me.

I dropped right down and did FUZZIEBEAR3's plank as soon as I read it.


Doing my full workout a little late today so I'll be back to post an update later.

This is fun!

    Do one of Leslie Sansone' s boosted walks. Those are always good :) I do those along with Walk it Out. You can boost and build at the same time :)

    Thanks so much for challenging me. I did Coach Nicole's kickboxing video that Judi challenged. That was good; I hadn't done that one in a long time.

Beachwalker: I'm giving your linked video a try tomorrow. I did some additional exercises after the kickboxing and wasn't up to another half hour plus; but, I will be ready for it tomorrow! I'll follow that with Diane's suggestion and that should be a good workout for a Monday.


I'm up for more ideas if anyone else wants to play along.

    I challenge you to try a few things from my training session:

Dumbbell reverse fly on ball
Alternating lunges with bicep curls
Mountain climbers

Good luck and I know that you'll take the challenge. emoticon

    When I feel lazy or my knees are hurting I like my chair exercises. But, I like my walking the most! How about looking up a new park and check out the trail? If it is too chilly out, look on the computer on You Tube for a cool new exercise. I found one for my chair workouts I do 5x a week called Chair Salsa:
Paul is kind of goofy, but I think it is fun.
Someone posted a blog about finding a treasure trove of exercise DVD's at the library. I plan to go check that out, need more on the milder side. I can't do any of the hopping, lunging, floor mat stuff that Coach Nicole does!
I saw this video on Youtube just now, looks so cool, if you can handle it-wish I could- I would throw my back and knees out if I did it! emoticon
See what you think-38 min of a fantastic workout:
