What is your exercise plan? recumbent e-bike 5/7 days each week, dumb bells, maybe some cardio hula.

2018 Summer 5% Challenge Exercise Commitment: I will only watch Supernatural if I'm riding my e-bike... and I don't want to miss Supernatural (watching season 13 on Netflix, after that I'll choose another Netflix tv show to bike with.). :) I will ride my e-bike approx 45 minutes 5 days each week, I will utilize my dumb bells and work my arms 3 days each week, and if I'm feeling in a dancing mood I'll pop in my cardio hula dvd and dance along.

I also plan on starting to incorporate some jogging/running into my routine as well. I will be following some sparkpeople videos for most of my strength training and will hopefully be able to get some swimming in as well.

The Gym isn't a thing for me at present......a 2year old keeps me moving!!!!!

I am doing a 1/4 marathon in September with some of the folks that go to WW with me so my plan for this challenge is to walk some part of every day even if it is only 15 mins!!!!

Have several trips away over july so there will be quite a bit of walking done...
That's my plan as best as it can be

I keep my exercise bag in the car and hang my swim suit on my door after it dries in the bathroom so I don't forget it.

My exercise plan is to work once a week with a personal trainer, do water aerobics classes at least 3 days per week, swim at least a mile 3 days per week, use the weights and walk twice a week and use the elliptical machine for 33 minutes twice a week. This may seem excessive, but I am on a serious strengthening mission as well as trying to lose weight during the next year to help my recovery from knee surgery that I am trying to put off until next June.

Exercise is one area that I don't have much difficulty... I have all my things ready to go

What is your exercise plan?
I will be following the plan that I have been using for a while now. 3 days of at least 30 minutes of activity (walking, stationary bike, paddle boarding, hiking, running etc.) and 2 days of at least 30 minutes of strength training. The other two days (often the weekends) I allow myself to not feel pressured to do a structured activity, but still try to get 30 active minutes over the course of the day.

Did you post your 2018 Summer 5% Challenge Exercise Commitment on your Spark Page, on this topic, or in a blog?

I posted on here and will be posting on my page shortly

Have you got your gym clothes, runners, water bottle, etc. ready to go? I get my gym bag ready the night before, it now has gym clothes and my swimsuit and a towel as I never know when it will be storming and will have to use the gym instead of the pool. I carry my water bottle everywhere now. emoticon emoticon

What is your exercise plan?

Strength: i workout with a personal trainer once a week, will work into getting more weights in during the week with him emoticon

Cardio: I enjoy the pool, I take a class in the water on Friday mornings over the summer and once a week, of course weather permitting. emoticon I normally ride a stationary bike for 20-30 minutes when I go to the gym, with at least a 7 intensity. emoticon

Summer 5% Challenge starts June 30, 2018

I've got my workout gym clothes, water bottle, etc. ready to go. I need to mark exercise and videos on calendar days. Have pool shoes on my walker and put my pedometer there ready for me. I have my water bottle always ready wherever I am. I need to get socks and shoes out and ready for walking with my walker in the early am using pedometer. Start by walking five minutes and add 100 steps a day.

Did you post your 2018 Summer 5% Challenge Exercise Commitment in a blog? Yes, on June 16, 2018.

I measure exercise intensity using the Rate of Perceived Exertion (RPE) which is a safer bet than monitoring my heart rate. I'm on a Beta-blocker so my heart rate will not elevate.

5 Fun Ways to Dive In to Aquatic Exercise By Jennipher Walters, Certified Personal Trainer and Fitness Instructor

"For a quick full-body workout, do a minute of each: standing front kicks, standing back kicks, standing side kicks, jabs, crosses, upper-cuts and leg raises (hold on to the ladder with your arms and draw your knees up like you would on a captain's chair at the gym). If your pool happens to stock kick boards, add on some cardio by kicking your way from one side of the pool to the other. Kick boarding is easier than swimming laps, especially if you're not a strong swimmer, but it's still great for the cardiovascular system."

Have you got your gym clothes, runners, water bottle, etc. ready to go? - Yes, I have a separate closet for my exercise clothes. The gym is just a mile away so I can get ready at home.

What is your exercise plan?

My goal is to get myself up to the gym 3 - 4 times a week.
- Tuesday: Pilates Reformer for 1 hour + Strength Equipment for 30 min before class
- Wednesday: Life Barre for 1 hour followed by Surrender Yoga for 1 hour
- Thursday: Mat Pilates for 45 minutes followed by Stretched & Balanced for 45 minutes
- Saturday: Root Yoga for 1 your + Strength Equipment for 30 minutes before class

I will also be walking my little Daisy (dog) every morning for 1 - 2 miles.

I have 2 rather large gardens to care for this summer along with 2 smaller ones and a large yard that needs a lot of work done.

On the days that I don't go to the gym, I will use my treadmill, stationary bike and weights at home. I also plan to work on balance while I am watching TV in the evenings.

My gym bag is always packed with my swimsuit, footies, and towels. I joined the Y yesterday so I will be using the pool not just for physical therapy. I love how I feel after physical therapy and working out in the water. They have a hot tub, sauna and a steam room. I never used a steam room before, so that will be a new treat. When I leave all I have to do is grab my sneakers if I am using the gym, my water bottle and out the door i go.

I plan on using the pool at least 3x a week. I will do my physical therapy exercises for my back and then do more for my knee that I remember from when I had my knee replacement.. I plan on using the weight room for strength training 1-2x a week. The physical therapist doesn't want me using some of the equipment because of my back, but I will be using the recumbent bike 1-2x a week. I would like to try a few classes, especially a spin class.

I love SparkPeople

emoticon & emoticon Welcome 5% Challengers new and returning. The countdown to the Challenge is so exciting as we gather together and get ready for take-off.

emoticon of the 5% Challenge will be Saturday, June 30th.

Do these countdown assignments as they fit into your schedule. Use this time to set goals and plan for a successful summer challenge. Be ready Day 1 to put your good intentions into good actions.

OK, let's get started. Regardless of what you have been doing, remind yourself daily "I used to be that way, but now I am different"... quote by Linda Spangle. Empower yourself! Our challenge is not just about losing weight, it's also about having a strong healthy body. It about being a little stronger than you were the day before. Motto - strive for progress, not perfection.

Starting today - aim for at least 20 minutes of daily exercise to gain momentum and surge into Summer. You can break it into smaller sessions if that helps. But don't mistake being busy for being physically active. You need exercise to have ease of movement, strength to do your daily activities and to feel happier.

Make this month one you will remember as a turning point in your life, when you decided to put your good intentions into actions for a healthier lifestyle. Look for ways to improve your health, feel better about yourself, and get launched with a running start.

Take part in these Countdown Activities. It will help you develop your personal action plan for success. You are off to a FRESH start and in the future you will join your team for an exciting 8 week Challenge. When you put thought into your desired actions and outcomes you are planning for success.

Our Leaders are setting up the Challenge behind the scenes. Your team invitation will be going out in the next week or so and you will have time to get to know your leaders and team mates. On the FIRST DAY of the Challenge, please weigh in and note your weight so you have it ready to record on your team page. If you will be away please post earlier, before you leave.

Exercise

Resources - Dust off the scale, get your exercise clothes out where you can see them, pull out the runners, find the gym bag, wash and fill the water bottle, find the pedometer, the heart rate monitor, swim suit, dog leash if you have a dog, take the clothes off the treadmill, find your Biggest Loser workout DVDs, see what exercise programs are at your gym, on TV, Spark TV, youtube, or learn to use Map My Walk on Spark, find a Meetup group that walks, dances or bikes. Just get out there.

Tip - put a pair of runners, jacket and a hat in the car so you are ready to walk any time.

Program - Plan on what exercise you actually will do. If you are just starting out aim for consistency; will you walk daily for 20 minutes? If you have been exercising for awhile can you challenge yourself to increase the intensity and time? Follow Spark exercises for upper, core, lower and whole body exercises. Look at chair exercises if you have mobility issues or to add additional exercise minutes while you watch TV. Spark exercises are excellent and require little equipment, and are the same as other professional trainers assign.
