New Challenge

I was reading Shape Magazine a few days ago and I can't remember what celeb said it, but she does 75 pushups, 100 lunges, and 200 crunches every night before she goes to bed just to make sure she ends the day on a healthy note. Nice.

In high school my sisters and I followed a similar routine...a couple hundred crunches before bed. Now I think, "do I want to get all sweaty before hopping in-between the sheets?" Heck yeah! BAM! New challenge!

So, who is hopping in with me? You can set your own pushups, lunges, crunches goal...just let me know what you're in for.

I think I'm going to try to mimic Miss Celeb and go 75, 100, and 200. The pushups might be a bit pushy...for all of my "buff arms" I can be a wimp!

You have this week to sign up, don't be afraid to start now (I'd better work my way up to 75), and then we'll officially start next week, March 5th-11th.

Are you with me?

*****sorry, I looked at the wrong month...next week is the 8th-14th!!!! But if you already started....keep going!

I'm with you Kel. Reading Marie's blog and then your comment on her blog motivated me to quit being a lazy butt and get going! How long is this challenge for?

Kelly said...

it's just for a week...but of course, you can keep going afterward :)

I was going to sign up but since it is only a week I guess I'm out since there is no lunging for me for at least another whole week....stinkin broken leg! It has ruined all my motivation for exercise.

Kelly said...

...and if you have a broken leg...just do the situps and pushups!!!

Texas Tingey said...

Okay Kelly........I will do this one! I use to do the same type of this with my sisters. Push-ups, lunges, sit ups every night before bed:-)
I will email you with my goal, because I don't want the rest of y'all doing this to feel intimidated by my large numbers I am able to throw down....lol. j/j Totally, totally joking!!!!!LOL

I'm in too, but I have a question; I have heard that you should rotate the muscles you use every other day so they have a chance to rebuild. I usually do arms one day and legs the next etc. Is that just a myth? Thanks!

Kelly said...

Corey, not a myth...you should rotate muscle groups that you are working, especially if you don't have time to work all of my muscles everyday. HOWEVER, the golden rule of thumb is 24 hours. Muscles need that long to rebuild...so try to do your night time challenge workout at the same time every evening,that way you'll have a good recovery period. SECOND...most people don't damage their muscles enough in a normal workout to have to worry about it.

Kelly said...

you muscles, that is...

My new Shape issue has been in the inbox folder for over a week at best. Better go check it out! I'm totally in on the challenge. Love it.

Jenn said...

I am in but instead of 75 pushup which I kknow is impossible for me since pushup are the exercise I hate the most, I am going to do 30
