We’re kicking off the month with our January Challenge Workout, but before I cover the details, a little personal insight into the idea of fitness New Year’s resolutions …
Thanks to New Year’s resolutions, it’s one of our busiest times of the year …
But before you die-hard fitness buffs scoff at the idea, know that I’ve personally witnessed multiple people begin a successful and dramatic body transformation starting on the first of the year. And if it wasn’t for their New Year’s resolution to lose weight/get in shape/etc., it probably never would have happened.
That being said, if you’ve been thinking about contacting us (or know anyone who has) to try our program, there’s really never been a better time. Leave us a message by clicking here or call (916) 273 9366 for more details and to set up a complimentary Test-A-Trainer session.
Now, on to the January 2012 Challenge Workout …
The concept behind our monthly Challenges:
These workouts are high intensity, strength-endurance style sessions that are scored in some way (you’ll see what I mean in just a second when we walk through this month’s workout …)
We repeat each Challenge several times throughout the year so you can see how your fitness level is improving over time.
The January 2012 Challenge Workout
- KB Swings (two hand, one hand, or hand-to-hand – your choice)
- Push Ups (“regular” for guys, knees for gals)
- Body Weight Squats
- Plank Hold
- Jumping Jacks
Get as many reps as you can of each exercise in one minute. Rest :30 between exercises. Upon completion of one round, rest :60 and repeat the circuit two more times for a total of three rounds.
Keep a running total of reps throughout the workout. Your total number of reps for all three rounds is your final score.
Here’s a video where I explain the workout, demo the exercises and cover a few more of the fine details:
That’s it for this month’s Challenge … good luck and check back later this week for results!
