Lessons on the Run: Ep17-The Challenge[youtube width=”600″ height=”355″]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IyQRz_FPxY8[/youtube]
After a and easy 30 minute run I started thinking about a good fitness test I could challenge myself with over the next 30 days. I wanted it to be practical, body weight exercises that utilize your entire body, so definitely no crunches.
After some deliberation here is
– (20) Pull-ups
– (50) Push-ups
– (20) Pistol Squats
My goal is to be able to achieve this by Sunday, April 29th exactly 30 days from today.
Here is my assessment of the situation. I tested myself and did 2 sets of
– (10) Pull-ups
– (25) Push-ups
– (10) Pistol squats *with assistance
I know I will be able to hit the push-ups. The pull ups will be hard but I believe I will be able to do it. It won’t be pretty though. The hardest one by far I believe will be the pistol squats. I will have to do double the reps I did today with no assistance plus my right leg felt stronger and more in control than my left.
So the reason I am putting this out is to hold myself accountable and to challenge you to come up with your fitness test to challenge yourself.
I hope you have an amazing day.
Oh by the way if you don’t know what a pistol squat is look at the image below:
