Summer 5% Challenge Fitness Guide

Friday, June 20, 2014

For the summer challenge I plan to exercise 6 days a week - 7 if I can. I want to either run or bike in the mornings (weather permitting). 3 days a week I plan to do strength exercises. I found an article on SP that says 6 exercises to do BEFORE getting pregnant. And since I want to get pregnant, I want to work on those exercises. One of them is the plank and I want to be able to do a plank for a minute by the end of this challenge. I can do 30-40 seconds right now. I also want to be able to do the complete tricep dip exercise (3 sets of 20). I can only do a minimal amount right now (about 2 sets of 10).

    Great plan! As Barbie says, you will be surprised on how quickly your ability to plank for longer times grows if you only stick with it. Side planks are good too!

    Great goals. There is a plank challenge I saw where you add a few seconds each day and you will be surprised how long you can work up to. I am proud that you are working to a healthier you for your pregnancy. Have a great challenge.
