Static Lunges

Stand with feet together, knees slightly bent, and arms to sides. Step backward with one foot. Keep your back upright as you slowly bend and lower the back knee towards the floor. At the same time bend the front knee, making sure it doesn’t go past your toes. Continue to raise and lower with one leg before swapping legs after 15 seconds.

Plank Ups

Begin in high plank position. Your shoulders, elbows, and wrists are in line with one another, and your back is flat, creating a flat line from the top of your head to your heels. Control down to one elbow with the other following, keeping a flat line through the full motion. Return to start position and repeat.

Spider Knees

Place hands on floor, slightly wider than shoulder width. On forefeet, bring one knee forward toward elbow. While holding upper body in place, alternate legs.

Squat Jumps

Stand with feet hip distance apart with your toes, knees and hips in a straight line. Slowly lower your body, as though you are sitting in a chair (ass out the back!). Lower until your butt is in line with your knees, make sure your knees are BEHIND your toes (If you can’t go down that low, go as low as you can). Keeping the weight in your heels, explode up as high as you can and return to land softly into a squat position. Repeat.

Squat Jacks

Stand with feet together, knees slightly bent, and arms to sides. Jump while raising arms and separating legs to sides. Land into squat position(explained). Jump and return to start position and repeat.

    I do try to walk a couple of days each week. But I never ever thought about my pace/speed when I was out doing it. I just walked along, chit-chatting, oblivious as to whether I was working hard or not – I just thought if I’m walking I’m doing good!! So this week I consciously brought my speed up to a level, where I was out of breath for a while, like you say in the challenge. Now I KNOW I’m walking!! I feel as if I’ve been cheating on walks for ages! …..my legs know it too!!

    I walk for an hour or more each day. Not sure how to get out of breath slightly or otherwise walking though?
