I'm not going to do traditional strength exercises, but I need to add plyometrics to my routine, so here are my choices:

switch lunges (20)
single leg hops (20)
leg bounds (20)
bench taps (20)
Box jumps (10)
rocket jumps (10)

Hello Teammates!

While sometimes it's hard to get that water in but they are so useful to us in losing the weight. I hope some of you worked yourselves into a new habit anyway! :)

Alrighty then, in keeping with the 2 Intake, 1 Exercise & 1 "Self-Esteem" MC idea, here is your "assignment" for the next week, should you choose to accept it:

Go to My Trackers (top menu) , then click on the My Fitness page and then SEARCH for Strength Training Exercises. From the drop down list choose five (5) exercises such as crunches, leg-lifts, etc. and add those to your favorites. The MC is to do those 5 exercises at least 4 of the 7 days this MC is in effect. You can change your Fitness Setup for the week on this page as well.

They usually consist of 2 reps of 12 each, so it won't take very long to do 5 of them to completion. ;) It is your choice to concentrate on your Core, Legs, Arms, or a combination. Oh, and now that you've made drinking water a habit, don't forget to drink your water while exercising!

Make sure to post your 5 choices in this Forum! Also, don't forget to get your 5 SparkPoints for each of the exercises each day you do them.

This MC starts Monday morning though you can feel free to pick your exercises at any time before then, if you wish and as usual, feel free to post your 5 choices any time too.

Hugs ya'll and GREAT luck...I know you can do it!!!
