Did 3-min yesterday, 12 sets of 15s :D (if including 5s rest between planks, should be total 4 minutes but I want to count the planks time only). So, 7 minutes to go!

I'm in! I usually barely able to do 30s and that's the modified version so 10-min, wow, that's a great challenge for me!

So, 10 total minutes of plank work, that means we can split the 10 minutes in different time in one day?

Ok.. I am a few day late in posting this, but I am going to change things up a bit. I found a great website for fitness challenges. It is called Bodybook. www.bodybook.com
Registration to the site is completely free.

This weeks challenge is to complete 10 total minutes of plank work.

Here is the link: www.bodybook.com/challenges/281

Summary of challenge from Bodybook.

Think you need to do lots of sit-ups to bring your abs up to scratch? Not so. The plank, aka hover, front hold or abdominal bridge is an excellent exercise to work your abs plus the rest of your core to boot. Set an initial target of 30 seconds and build up to holding the position for 1-2 minutes. The current world record is a painful 1 hour 20 minutes held by 54 year old George Hood - beat that if you can!

Once you have joined, please post your user name under the thread titled Bodybook. This way we can add each other as friends to keep track of our challenge results.

Good luck.

I did the pushup test again (Day 8 and the last day) and I got nearly double of my first test, WooHoo! Last time I got 15 reps with several rests and this time, I got 28 reps with lesser rest, more speed :D I tried to make the "test environment" about the same - no workout before test, wear "baju kurung" (googled that, it's the traditional clothes for Malay).

haha... I couldn't keep up with my base last night either. I worked out at the gym prior to doing the push ups. Bad idea. A trainer at the gym gave me a great idea for the push ups. He showed me how I can you a stability ball to simulate full push ups without actually putting weight on my toes. I am going to try that tonight.

10/1/12 Weekly challenge

This week we are going to be a pushup challenge

This program information is from the LovingFit website: www.lovingfit.com/fitness/improve-yo
ur
-push-ups/


Post your beginning and ending push up counts... this way we can all share in watching the numbers grow.

How it works.


Monday

Today I want you to take your push-up test. This is how you are going to figure out your own level of push-ups or as I call it Ė your base. Set your timer for 1 minute. Within that minute I want you to do as many push-ups as you can either off your knees or the regular push-ups. If you can only do 5 regular push-ups, do so then get on your knees and keep going until the time is up. If you can only do push-ups off your knees then do as many as you can, stop for a second if you have to but keep going until the minute is up.

Now you know your the base of your push-ups .

Tuesday

Today you are going to do 5 sets of push-ups with 1-2 minutes break in between. Beginners can do 2 min, more advanced trainees should rest for 1 minute only.

The first set of push-ups you will do will be to failure. Failure means you will do as many as you can until you canít do anymore. Take a minute to 2 break. Then you are going to do 4 sets of your base with 1-2 minutes rest ( your base is the number you came up with on Monday )

Wednesday

Today I want you do do 6 sets total of your base but throughout the day whenever you find a minute available. Not all at once like we did on Tuesday. You will do 1 set at a time, until you reached 6 sets throughout the day.

Thursday

Today you will do 2 sets to failure with 1-2 minute break in between, then you will do 2 more sets of your base adding 2 extra reps to each ( and trust me you will be able to do it ). And all of this you will do at once ( Not like we did Wednesday )

Friday

Today you will repeat the same thing you did on Wednesday, 6 sets total but throughout the day. Also if you can and I know you can add 2-4 extra reps to your base.

Saturday

Today you will do 4 sets to failure with 2 minutes break in between.

Sunday

You will take a complete day off.

Monday

Today you will take your test again, and I guarantee you are going to beat your old scores from previous Monday.

Make sure to take 3 days off after youíve completed this program. You can do this type of program every few monthís to keep increasing your strength. But be careful I donít want you to do too much and go crazy, please pace your self because if you donít you will overtrain.

And always always always watch your form Ė abs tight, back straight and hump free.

The max that I did was 5 in a pilate class last Thursday, my butt was so sore on next day (perhaps because of other exercises in the class as we focused on lower body, hehe).

Hi everyone,

Weekly challenges are challenges that you only complete one time at anytime during the week. Once you have completed the activity, note your time/reps whatever the challenge requires and post the information in the challenge thread.

Good luck.
