Monthly Challenge July

Challenge of the month

The monthly challenge gives you a specific goal or target to aim at over a month. Over this 4 weeks, you can set a benchmark, work hard and see real improvement at the end.

How will this challenge help you?

This helps in 2 ways. First, it is a progressive physical challenge, so you will have to work gradually harder over the month.

Secondly, it is a behavioural challenge, to help teach you how you can improve yourself independent of others.

Monthly Challenge – June

Challenge of the month

The monthly challenge gives you a specific goal or target to aim at over a month. Over this 4(ish) weeks, you can set a benchmark, work hard and see real improvement at the end.

How will this challenge help you?

Encourages you to do something every day. And as we know…we get good at what we do…

Equipment needed

Entirely down to you. Take a look around you and use whatever you have handy!

Format

Daily accumulation. You just accumulate either 1, 2, 3 or 4 minutes each day in June.

Instructions

Choose your own exercise. Yep, it can be anything at all! If you want some inspiration, take a look at our video gallery of exercises by clicking here. It can be the same exercise through the whole month (might get a bit dull though), or you might change it every few days.

Then every day in week 1, you accumulate x1 minute of your chosen exercise. You can do it at any time of the day, but I advise getting it over and done with before midday. Otherwise it tends to just hang over you and eventually not get done.

For week 2, accumulate x2 minutes each day.

For week 3, accumulate x3 minutes each day (do you see a pattern forming here?)

And finally, for week 4, accumulate x4 minutes each day.

Really, it is as simple as that! You have no excuse, so get stuck in and let us know how things go in the Peer Support group now.

Monthly Challenge – March

Challenge of the month

The monthly challenge gives you a specific goal or target to aim at over a month. Over this 4 weeks, you can set a benchmark, work hard and see real improvement at the end.

How will this challenge help you?

Help you get abs/buns/guns of steel!

Equipment needed

None needed.

Format

Daily accumulation. You just accumulate the number of reps each and every day for the whole month.

Instructions

This is the March 100!

Each day, aim to accumulate x100 reps of “something”. That “something” is up to you and you can change it at any time through the month….but you still do x100 each day. Some examples of what they could be include:

  • x100 core exercises on Monday
  • x100 pressups on Tuesday
  • x100 squats on Wednesday
  • x100 burpees on Thursday
  • x100 hops/skips/jumps on Friday
  • x100…..whatever you decide!

You get the idea? You choose what you are going to do x100 of each day in March, and then accumulate them throughout the day. They don’t need to be all done at the same time (unless you want to). They might be spread out throughout the day…some in the morning, others in the afternoon and the final ones in the evening.

So decide what you want to do each day this coming month and announce it on the Peer Support group. There we can help each other and be awesome!

And to give you some inspiration and ideas, don’t forget we have our series of videos showing some of our more popular exercises…. They include exercises for:
