For the JULY Challenge we are bringing back a group FAVORITE and having a PLANKAPALOOZA!!!  (translation: a month-long plank party!)

This month – we will all see what it means to have PLANK POWER!

There are 5 daily exercises (and a couple of bonus options) designed to be done wherever you want, with NO EQUIPMENT NEEDED, and in an average of 15 minutes.

As the month progresses, notice the voice inside your head, and what it’s telling you.  We can learn powerful lessons just by acknowledging the role that voice in our head is playing, and how you are acting on that voice!  Notice what happens when the voice is telling you to quit.  What choices do you make?  Are there ways you can find the strength of spirit to move forward more than you thought possible?  How does this play out in other areas of our lives?

These challenges are designed to test us physically, but also mentally.  If you stick with it, you will find rewards you never imagined possible at the end!

Planks and bonus lunges are TIMED.  This is done to help us incorporate our personal music choices into the month.  We love when you share your musical selections in the Facebook group, because it’s FUN, and it often sparks something in another team member!  How does music help you get through the challenge?  Take a look at some of the SUCCESS STORIES from other great people who have participated in The Monthly Fit Challenge!

A GREAT SUPPORT TEAM:  If you want to join us and haven’t yet, please ask to join the Facebook Challenge Group HERE.  This is where you will get the MOST out of your experience!  The Facebook group is a GREAT way to get fantastic support from people as you complete your daily exercise set.  The group holds each person accountable, and includes people from all over the world, every age group, background and fitness level! And remember, it’s not a competition with anyone except for your own self!

In JULY we will be have a strong abdominal set, but we will also incorporate these muscle groups:

abdominus rectus (abdominal wall)

obliques

shoulders/chest/arms

glutes (your butt)

hamstrings

quadriceps

PLEASE NOTE:  Take a careful look at the notes section of the calendar (below), for quick tips.  Also note that when an exercise says ‘ea’ in front of it, it means to say we are doing that exercise on EACH SIDE.

Below is the JULY Calendar, and How To Overview.  Also, let our friend Jumping Jack show you HOW TO DO the June exercises!

READ THIS for an brief overview of how exercises are selected, as well as The Challenge Objectives.
