Is this is one mile at once?

Question • 3 answers

I walk roughly 10,000 steps at work; however, its throughout the day and not all at once. Would that count for this challenge?

Newest answer

I agree with Alex particularly as it is such a short distance.

Is this a weekly or one-off challenge?

Question • 2 answers

I checked the rules and think this could be a one-off challenge.  What do you think?

Newest answer

Agree with both of you, it reads as a one off, interestingly a lot of people have done it for 7 days, it must be the love of logging 1/7 2/7 etc :)) The breathing is the easier part, it's the focusing and emptying of your mind to allow total concentration ...

Question • 8 answers

For me, the first 2 miles of running sucks.  The whole time my body is saying "Why in the hell do you do this, you know it is going to hurt?"  Then  at about mile 2 my body gives up and probalby says "Screw you, you're obviously not going to listen, go ahea...

same for me - 1st couple of miles feel like a lot of conscious effort, after that it all just seems to get easier and the running happens almost without me thinking about it - then its all good :-)

Is there any real benefit in Planking for up to 5mins?

Question • 8 answers

I'm doing a month Planking challenge 30secs to 5minutes; Currently at 2 minutes. I'm finding 2 mins pretty tough and cannot imagine holding it for 5 minutes! Just wondered if (after I finish the challenge; I will give it my best shot) it may be more benefic...

Newest answer

No. Plank is merely one of the many core stabilizing exercises in the repertoire. In order to really ioncrease core strength you are better off going for a wider variety of exercises than a single exercise. At a certain stage of any form of movement or exer...

What is the cause of my tennis/bikers elbow?

I agree with Christopher. Start by doing what your body allows you to, see how far you can go. With time and patience, you'll be able to increase your overall strength and stamina and challenge yourself for more reps, sets and harder exercises!

Squat thrust?

Question • 2 answers

I hate to be a stickler about this but these are not squat thrusts where you simply come back up to a standing postition. These are burpees where everything is the same as the squat thrust except the explosive jump at the end. When I first watched this I wa...

Newest answer

Yep .... I agree. I think of squat thrusts as being like two-legged mountain climbers - bringing your knees to your chest & keeping your hands on the ground. the video shows burpees (and not great form either lol !!)

is it OK to do multiple challenges?

Question • 3 answers

I started run/jogging in the mornings, every other day 2 weeks ago. I started the 30 day arm challenge in the evenings 4 days ago. I'd like to have a nice workout on days I don't run/jog. Along with the 30 day arm challenge.

Newest answer

Hi Enriko, follow Roomi's and Laura's advices and you'll do fine. If you have many active challenges, you can even combine them into one big complete workout!

Does this challenge count as a 30 day challenge? As in I can count it towards the "12 30 day challenges ina year"?

Newest answer

Hey Marielle. It's like what Damian said, you choose how you want to do your Squats through the entire month. Some days more, other days less. Happy Squatting! :)

How to count?

Question • 7 answers

10 squat thrust + 30 MC + 10 SJ = 50 reps. So one more set makes it 100.. So is that how this challenge should be done?

Newest answer

Yes you got it right!! Just don't forget that mountain climbers are counting 1-2-3-ONE-1-2-3-TWO so 10 reps really equal 30 (15/leg) =D
