Monday and Tuesday Summer Refresh Fitness Challenge

Standard

So, today was pretty smooth sailing!  I woke up and finally went to a Pilates class- which I have been dying to try (more on this on Friday)!  I received an email that an opening came available for an earlier Girl’s on the Run coaches training, so my new training date is tomorrow!  I am so excited! I then had a day full of meal planning, grocery shopping, and preparing for the Girl’s on the Run coaches training tomorrow.  Finally, I met with my personal trainer for a great shoulder, chest, and tri work out!  Even better, when I got home my husband had dinner prepared, and I was definitely hungry after working up a sweat!  After dinner, my husband and I played catch up with the fitness challenges for this week.

As you know Monday’s challenge was to see how many burpees you can do in two minutes!  I found this challenge to be really hard.  You would not think that two minutes is a long time, but it felt like eons in burpee time!  I struggled with this challenge, and I definitely need to practice my burpee form (something to work on in the future?).  In two minutes I was able to do 19 burpees.  My husband found this challenge to be hard too, but he kicked my butt with 26 burpees!

Next up was today’s challenge for a one minute plank.  This exercise is right up my alley!  I love planks and I love working on my core!  I kept this exercise simple and did the basic plank.  However, I do love plank variations as well!  One minute plank no problem!  I guess next time I should go for a harder variation…

This girl LOVES Planks!

How many burpees can you do in two minutes?  Did you do your one minute plank today?  Whats your favorite plank variation?
