Happy Wednesday! For those of you who follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed that I’ve been using the hashtag #maychallenge.
On May 1st I was talking to my friend Lauren (a personal trainer and blogger at Petite Curves Ahead) about the gym challenge I did back in November. I went to the gym every day from Thanksgiving until Christmas. Not an easy feat but I did it and won a free month of membership. Lauren challenged me to do it again. And even though there aren’t any prizes to win this time around, I said yes.
I know I’m posting this a few days into May but I wanted to see if anyone wanted to join us. Here are the rules:
- Go to your gym (or dance/yoga studio, garage, your basement, aka wherever you work out) every day in May.
- Snap a picture as proof.
- Share it on social media and tag it with the hashtag #maychallenge. If you share it on instagram or twitter, feel free to tag me as well (@painfreekitchen).
- You don’t have to work out every day. Remember it’s OK to have active-rest days. So you can stretch or foam roll instead.
- You don’t have to stay long. Monday night I only had 20 minutes but that was enough for an awesome arm workout.
Alright that’s it. Who’s in?
Shoulder and Hamstring Workout + 20 minutes on the StairMaster at level 8
The Big 4 – Bench Press, Dead Lift, Squats, and Pull-ups.
1 mile run on the treadmill (not pictured) and 36 minutes on the stationary bike.
Almost threw in the towel this day. My car’s transmission started to give me trouble so I had to drop it off at the repair shop and walk about 2 miles to get home. But I stopped letting life give me excuses, put on my Nikes, and busted out an awesome 20 minute arm workout.
Please excuse the bright red face and sweaty shirt. Last night I decided to start using Kayla Itsines workouts again. 27 minutes of intense plyometric HIIT.
