Yes, I usually use this picture for my DreamWard Bound posts, but I felt it fits this post. I have a challenge that I challenged myself to and I accepted that challenge. This challenge is to create an exercise routine that I can do everyday for 100 days.
I got this idea from a friend at work who is doing a 100 day challenge for herself. She has her 15 minute routine that she does every day. She found this “century” challenge first from a sword fighting challenge she heard of or did. It was basically 100 strikes for 100 days. She took the idea and made it into a workout challenge.
I am now taking that idea and making it my own.
Now I usually am on the go, so I might not get to do this all at once. However, I need to make sure I do it all.
Here is my challenge.
- 10 Squats (and hold for 10 seconds after)
- 10 Russian Twists
- 10 push ups (hold in plank for 10 seconds after)
- 10 crunches
- 10 shrimp/ hip escapes (each side)
- 10 hip switches
- 10 shoulder rolls
- 20 bicycles
- 10 leg lifts
- 10 Cross-body mountain Climber (That may not be the name, but I know what it means)
If you want to know more information about these exercise, please let me know. I may still expand on the exercises, but that is the list so far.
The catch with this challenge is that I will do these exercises for 100 days and if I miss a day I will reset the day count. This means if I am at day 66 and miss a day I reset the day count, so the next day I will be at day 0 or 1 depending if I actually workout.
The only exception to the set back day count is my class days. I want to be able to focus all my energy on the training and class. Plus, I will be doing more than 10 sets of most of these exercise during class.
After the 100 days I will increase the exercise numbers and do another 100 days.
I will also be keeping or trying to keep a log of my challenge. I am not sure how I will do this, but will be keeping track some where, some how. Stay tuned for the log of the challenge.
Finally, let me know if you are taking this challenge too.
