Welcome to Day 1 of the June fitness challenge. This workout will be longer than the others because you have an assessment today, in addition to the workout.
If for some reason, you can’t do the assessment today, try to do it by Day 3, at the latest. There will be another assessment at the end of the challenge.
The purpose of this is to check your current fitness. You will do this same assessment at the end of the challenge to see how much you improve.
Plank. Hold a plank for as long as possible. Try to do it on your toes. If you can’t, you are allowed to do it on your knees. But you cannot do both. It’s either knees or toes. Write down your time, re: 90 seconds on toes.
Cardio. Run or walk 1 mile (1.6 km) as fast as possible. This can be done on a treadmill or outdoors. You can also do a run/walk combo. Record your time.
Pushups. Do as many pushups as possible in 1 minute. You can do them on your knees, toes, or a combination. Make sure you document it, re: 20 on toes, 15 on knees.
How long does it take? Approx. 20 minutes. It could be 10 minutes, if you’re running.
Make sure you do a 5-10 warmup before all workouts. If you did the assessment, you’re warm.
Pushup with arm extension – 14 total
Squat with hip abduction – 14 per leg, do all reps on one side then switch. Do not alternate.

Move from one exercise to the next. After the jumping jacks, you can take a short break. Then start the next round. Beginners: Complete 3 rounds. Int/Adv: Complete 4-5 rounds.
How long does it take? Each round takes about 5 minutes. If you do 3 rounds, you’re done in 15 minutes.
- Drink water all day.
- Eat lots of veggies and fruit.
- Do not look at processed foods or alcohol. Don’t you even. Walk away with your head held high. You a star, baby.
My computer crashed last night! So I don’t have access to the video I made for today’s fitness challenge. I am sorry about this. But I am linking you to demos on youtube to keep this party going. Just click on the highlighted links on each exercise. I hope to have this resolved by tomorrow. Wish me luck.
