FEBRUARY Hard Core Challenge, 2/13-2/20 (Read 31 times)

    We are a bit out of sequence, but since there are two weeks left in February, let's have this thread be from today until the 20th. Then another thread from 2/21-2/28 and then jeffdonahue will be leading up March's challenge with a different type of exercise.

     

    This week, let's continue to do a minimum of 2 minutes of planks (but if you've been doing more than that, then continue to do more if 2 min is not challenging enough). Split that time up with however you choose (60 sec prone, 30 sec each side). If you liked the spidey plank, continue to do those as well as part of your 2 minutes.

     

    Then do a set of these for variation. You are still using your core in this exercise but you are also getting some glute workout.

     

    Basic Move: Glute Bridge March


    Lie on your back with your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor. Rest your arms on the floor, palms up, at shoulder level. Raise your hips so your body forms a straight line from your shoulders to your knees (A). Brace your abs and lift your right knee toward your chest (B). Hold for 2 counts, then lower your right foot. Repeat with the other leg. That's 1 rep. Do 2 or 3 sets of 5 to 10 reps.

      This morning I did:

       

      :75 prone

      :30 right

      :30 left

      :60 spidey

       

      Will do planks again this evening and also the glute bridges

        1:00 prone

        :30 right

        :30 left

        2 x 10 GBM...which took about 2:00

          1:00 prone

          :30 right

          :30 left

          2 x 20 GBM

          Life is a headlong rush into the unknown. We can hunker down and hope nothing hits us or we can stand tall, lean into the wind and say, "Bring it on, darlin', and don't be stingy with the jalapenos."

            this a.m.:

             

            1:15 prone

            :30 right

            :30 left

            GBM: 3 sets of 10 on each side.  How do I write that? 3x30 GBM?

              Tammy - 3 x 30 would be 90.

               

              Try these?

               

              3 x 10 GBM on each side

              30 GBM each side

              60 GBM

              Life is a headlong rush into the unknown. We can hunker down and hope nothing hits us or we can stand tall, lean into the wind and say, "Bring it on, darlin', and don't be stingy with the jalapenos."

                I did 10 on each side. 3 times.  so I did 30 with my left leg, 30 with my right. alternating after each set of 10.

                 

                i don't know why but it always confuses me how to write it out in shorthand.

                 

                and this is probably why I am not in a math-related career. Roll eyes

                    We have noticed that this thread has challenged your math skills on more than one occasion.....Big grin

                        I inadvertently did some core today: rolled out my shins on the foam roller before my run this morning, holding myself up with straight arms, and drew my knees in and out to my chest. Back felt good, and while the shins were protesting at the time, my run felt fabulous afterward. Smile
