REMINDER

  • Monthly Challenge is accumulating 600 pushups this month! Pushups in workouts count as well. That’s only around 20 pushups a day!
  • It’s a new month, we need goals on the goal board! This month we want you to think of a goal OUTSIDE of the gym to better yourself
  • Nutrition Challenge will start around the beginning of March. Be on the lookout for it!
  • Bring a Friend day is THURSDAY!! All classes are FREE to try!

We’ll have a post later this week talking about the nutrition challenge and the details and set up for that. Like always we like to add some variety to the challenges to mix them up a bit so you guys don’t get bored with them.

As of now, the goal is the first week of March (2nd-7th) is when we will do the measurement process (measurement of body, bodyfat test if you’d like, etc). Then the following week we would start the challenge. The challenge will last a total of 8 weeks long.

We will have a video going more into the process later this week so don’t worry too much about it!

For those of you doing pushups, especially those of you trying to tackle 100 pushups each day, you might be starting to get some aches and pains. Maybe you’re getting aches and pains doing less than 100 reps. The video below is a good idea to do maybe 1-2 times a week. Keep in mind your body probably isn’t use to this sort of volume, pushup wise, so it’s probably getting a little tight and bunched up.

We’ve done this a couple times as mobility, spend 3-5 min each side, after class and you’ll be golden. Only difference from the video is instead of having the barbell above you, have it go down the side of your body, and put your leg on the barbell to add more pressure to mash deeper. What you will do with your arm will be the same as the video. Hope this helps!! Remember to take care of your body. Doing all these pushups aren’t worth it if you are in pain the next 2 months after.

It was Taylor Hoffman’s birthday on the 15th. If you see her wish her a happy belated one!
