30 Day Body Weight Challenge

Did anyone else join the Betty Rocker 30 Day Challenge? The challenge started on July 1st, so I just completed day 3 and its an easy kind of tough so far!

What I like most about the challenge is that it’s very flexible and easy to adapt to your own fitness level and day to day schedule. Also, there’s no excuses or reasons to NOT do it! You can do the workout anywhere because there’s no equipment required! All you need is your body.

I put the workout into my interval timer app and got through the entire workout in less than 41 minutes!

Happy 4th of July Weekend!

Murph

Here’s my workout of the day…

It’s called Murph:

Run 1 mile

100 pull-ups

200 push ups

300 squats

Run 1 mile

I completed this workout yesterday and felt great after! My legs were a little shaky and required lots of pre and post workout stretching. Today I’m only mildly feel-good-sore.

The idea is to complete the entire workout as fast as you can, so start by running your fastest mile. Then move on to the pull-ups, push ups, in squats. You can complete these in any order, style, or pattern you want. For me, it made more sense to start on the squats right away in order to break up the 300 reps by alternating between my sets of pull-ups and push ups. Also, it is important to modify everything to your own strength and fitness levels, so I am not ashamed to admit that I wanted to complete this workout but knew I had to modify to assisted pull-ups and to push ups on my knees. Then FINISH with one last mile!

Dare to try it?  Remember to stretch, modify as needed, and go as fast as you can! Let me know how it goes!
