It’s Monday morning, which can only mean one thing….
Week 2 of the LGF 28-Day Upper Body Challenge starts today!
This week you’ll be continuing to increase the reps of the three base exercises, but I’ve added in a newbie for you – the high-to-low plank. This is a great exercise for your shoulders and triceps, but the big bonus is the amazing stuff it will also do for your core. Told you this wasn’t just a push up challenge!
The trick with this one is to keep your core switched on at all times, and avoid too much twisting. Your hips should stay parallel to the ground at all times – imagine you’ve got a piece of wood resting across the top of your butt and you cannot let it fall off! Seriously, that wood cannot touch the ground. Drop your knees to modified plank if being on your toes is too much.
And that’s it for week two! How are you guys finding the challenge so far? Still with me?

p.p.s Told you this was no ordinary push up challenge.
