September marks that nice transition from Summer to Fall. Football season is starting, school is back in session and the last thing on your mind is working out. For these reasons and more I have often made September an important month for me to compete and train as much as possible. This year, that challenge will be even more achievable. I have mentioned before in previous posts how much I recommend Neila Rey’s awesome fitness website. Well, she has taken it up a level and created a series of 30-day program mini-books that you can use to train towards specific fitness goals.
So my birthday just passed and I have honestly never felt older. To be fair, I am coming off of a 3-month training period but I could do a lot better job at taking care of myself. I grew up reading a lot of comics and am a big fan of super hero films. So, like the Dark Knight coming back from a hiatus, I want to get back to push myself to my maximum potential and hold on to what youth remains. The workout challenge for June 2014 is of course, the Batman Challenge.
Summer is pretty much here and that means plenty of beach weekends to come. Here is a great workout challenge for May 2014 to help get you in swim suit shape. I came across this challenge on 30-Day Fitness Challenge website. A great site that also has a companion app for iOS and Android. This series will not be easy but the pay off and look in the mirror will be. To gauge the results at the end, take a “Before” picture at the start of the challenge and an “After” picture when complete. Pace yourself, stay consistent and enjoy. Feel to share, pin and repost as you want.
This month’s fitness challenge is all about running. In all my years of running, I have had very much a love/hate relationship with it. However, after the events at the Boston Marathon last year, I will always 100% appreciate my ability to do it. There will always be those days I would rather sleep in than bang out another five miles; but the right to make that choice on my accord is what makes Freedom so great. Unfortunately, too many had that choice taken from them by a couple of degenerates not even worth mentioning.
Here is a great workout challenge for March 2014. I came across this challenge on 30 Day Fitness Challenge website. A great site that also has a companion app for iOS and Android. Burpees aren’t easy but they may the most complete body weight workout you can do.
