Day 2 of the 21 Day Fitness Jump Off
1. Timed Push Up Test. Set a timer for one minute and complete as many pushups as possible. Record the number and type. For example, if you did 30 on your toes and then 10 on your knees, write that. You are allowed to take breaks just keep the timer going. Remember, form is everything. If you don’t go all the way down, it doesn’t count, boo. I’m not playin’.
2. Timed Mile. Run or walk one mile as fast as you can. You are allowed to do a run/walk combo. I don’t care how it gets done. Your goal is to complete one mile as fast as possible. During the test, please refrain from knocking folks over, shouting expletives, or spitting all over the treadmill. Be classy. Because I know you’re gonna ask (yes, I can read minds), this test cannot be part of your normal run. Let me explain. If you run 3 miles today, you’re not allowed to take the average pace per mile and use that. It must be your fastest mile! If I were you, I would warm up, run one mile as fast as I can, then cruise for the last two miles. In the end, you will have completed your normal 3 mile run and your timed mile.
3. Strike a Pose. Take a photo of yourself, a front view, a side (belly protrusion) view, and a back view. Wear body conscious clothing. A sports bra and short shorts would be ideal. This task is important even for those without weight loss goals. If you like your body and your goal is to maintain, don’t you want to record what that looks like and stay motivated to keep up the good work? I thought so. For those with weight loss goals, this is important for you, too. Many people hide under clothes or worse, buy bigger clothes as they get bigger. When this happens, it’s easy to forget the hot mess that lurks beneath. Let’s stay accountable and be honest with ourselves. [Angel’s note: If you want the extra accountability, you are welcome to send the pictures to my personal email.]
