Virtual Challenge At Work -- Day 1

Monday, February 11, 2013

Today is the first day of our Virtual Workout A Day Challenge at work. It is being run on our company's social media site and I am excited to participate. If you would like to join from a far, the Challenge lasts for six weeks starting February 11, 2013.

Before you begin take time to measure yourself so you can see what improves in six weeks. The Challenge suggests measuring your Abdomen, Waist, Hips, Thigh, Calf and Arm. You also take your initial weight and then you will weigh in once more when the Challenge concludes. You also need to see how many push-ups you can do without stopping and then how many sit-ups you can do without pausing. Write all of these down so you can see your improvement in six weeks.

So the concept is each day you are given four different exercises that make up one round. You try to do "the round" as many times as you can possibly do in 30 minutes. Every exercise is either with your own body weight or weights of 3-10 lbs.

Today's "round" consists of:

10 Squats
10 Push - Ups
10 Shoulder Press
10 Burpees

See how many rounds you can do in 30 minutes and let me know! I would love to see how many people can do so I know if I need to push myself more or more. I'll do my best to post each day's workout here if anyone would like to join :) It is always nice to have a workout buddy! Happy working out!
