Congratulations! You’re officially halfway through the challenge! By now you should be powering through those first few reps with perfect form, feeling stronger, happier and pretty damn proud of yourself!
This week we continue to increase the reps of your three core exercises, we add another 10 seconds to your high-to-low-plank and there’s a new exercise – air punching. (Are you kind of wishing you were just doing a push up challenge now?)
Now air punching makes you feel like a bit of an idiot… but it’s a great little cardio interval, I swear. If you’ve got any small handweights (I wouldn’t go any bigger than 3kg) you could use them, or even a couple of cans of tomato from the pantry – anything that adds a little bit of weight is good.
I’ve got a video here of me giggling and looking like a dag doing the punches down by Bondi beach – I figure if I can do it on Sydney’s most iconic beach, you can do it in the privacy of your own living room!
Let me know how you’re feeling as we hit week 3… I am super proud of you all xx
p.p.s Told you it was no ordinary push up challenge!
