The Rope Jump Plankapalooza challenge is all about jumping and building core strength. This daily exercise routine consists of two parts. This challenge can be completed as a monthly challenge or any time!
Choose to complete either jumping jacks, jump rope, or imaginary jump rope. Each one of these exercises is an awesome way to increase your heart rate.
Choose Level 1 or Level 2. Each level consistently increases in repetitions each day. Notice that Level 2 is more challenging than Level 1. Feel free to switch levels at any point based on your personal ability. Remember, if you find that you are barely breaking a sweat, increase the repetitions at your own rate each day.
Complete the number of repetitions on the calendar each day. For example, on Day 1, you will complete 25 jumping jacks/rope turns for level 1 or 75 jumping jacks/rope turns for level 2. If you miss a day, simply pick up where you left off.
Part Two – PLANKING
Hold a plank pose for as long as you can each day. You can choose either a traditional low plank or a high plank.
Try to increase your maximum time each day. Throughout the month your core strength will increase as long as you put in the work and push yourself!
Log your time. Each day you complete the plank challenge, be sure to add your time to the activity log so you can track your progress.
Check the circle on the activity log each day you complete the exercises.
I give my students an opportunity to turn in their challenges at the end of the month. I post their logs on a bulletin board and give them a completion certificate.
