It’s a brand new year! Time to start fresh – making small changes every day to meet your health and fitness goals. The very first challenge of the year will help you do just that!
The challenge is two parts. The first part is to give up soft drinks! This week gradually replace one soft drink a day with water until you are no longer drinking soft drinks at all.
I love this challenge because you can do it anywhere! Use your desk at work for some dips, and do walking lunges on the way to copier. Use a chair at home for dips, and do walking lunges on your way to the mailbox. Be creative! You have all day each day to complete this challenge – you don’t need to do them all at once. When you have a minute of free time during the day, get some reps in.
Beginners – do 20 Dips and 20 Walking Lunges every day this week
Intermediate – do 40 Dips and 40 Walking Lunges every day this week
Advanced – do 60 Dips and 60 Walking Lunges every day this week
You will be sore on Wednesday, but work through the soreness. However, don’t over-do it! Don’t try to do the advanced levels if you are a beginner. It will only lead to frustration and/or injury. Make sure you are focusing on form when doing walking lunges! Do not let your knee go past your toes, as this puts added stress on your knees.
We can all do this! Ready, Set, GO!
