Good morning Challengers and welcome to Day 1 of our March Challenge!
If you didn’t get a chance to look over the main challenge page with the calendar click here. Take a look and let me know if you have any questions or concerns. Print out the calendar and put it somewhere you can see it everyday. I will post the calendar as a file in Strong to the Core as well.
Now that you have the plan and are committed to this month’s workout…let’s get started!
The first thing you need to do is plan a time for your workouts. You know that if you don’t make the time to get it done…life happens…then the day is over and you are exhausted.
To keep that from happening…think about your day and schedule your workouts so you know when you will get them done and can fit it in without stressing out. I’m a morning person so my workouts are usually done before lunch. When is your “me” time?
Having that time set aside for you will make all the difference in wether you finish 15 days… or 30 days. Make a plan and stick to it. Of course we are all going to have days when the plan won’t work…but without a plan you will have a hard time succeeding.
Now it’s time to get moving….
Day 1 exercises: Arms – 3 sets of 10
- Plank – :30
- Tricep Dips
- Overhead Shoulder Press
- Bent Over Reverse Fly
- Calf Raises – 10 each leg
- Plank – :30
- Side Plank – :30 each side
- Arm Stretches – Bicep Wall Stretch & Tricep Towel Stretch
Don’t feel overwhelmed…it looks like a lot but it won’t take long at all. Just get started and knock it out. Watch the “how to” videos to ensure you are doing them correctly. Check out the videos below to see how to do the arm stretches for today. These will help keep your muscles soft and ready to work them again in a few days.
No bonus yet…let’s ease into it and see how it goes this week. Tuesday is usually a run day for most of us though so go out and log some miles to burn calories today and get some time on legs today!
When you are done, post in Strong to the Core that you have completed Day 1!
No slackers today y’all…I want to see everyone getting it done and making it an awesome day! 🙂
