JUMP ROPE PLANKAPALOOZA – 30 DAY CHALLENGE

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!

Click on the pictures or here for a copy of THE JUMP ROPE PLANKAPALOOZA.

Part One – JUMPING

  • 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.

January’s BUILD A BETTER PUSH-UP – 30-Day Challenge PERFECT for Everyone!

Whether you’re a child or an adult, a fundamentally sound push-up can be difficult. After all, many of us simply haven’t developed the necessary muscle strength to successfully push our body weight from a down position up into a high plank. We need to realize that this is absolutely fine. We can’t run before we learn to walk. There are several simple exercises that I refer to as the evolution of the push-up, that can assist us in developing the necessary strength, allowing us to eventually perform a perfect traditional push-up.

The Build a Better Push-up 30-Day Challenge allows you to take ownership of your workout. You can select a level that fits your ability. Remember! A good fit doesn’t mean an easy fit. A good fit means while focusing on proper form, you are challenged to accomplish each repetition. You want the final few repetitions of each set to be a grind. This is where you develop the strength for your push-up to evolve.

Exercise has it’s own GIF

To conclude, the BUILD A BETTER PUSH-UP CHALLENGE serves as a tool for us to develop the necessary strength to complete one, or even several push-ups with precise form.

Certificate of Completion included.

FITNESS BLAST – It’s Time to Have a Blast Getting FIT!

It’s time to HAVE A BLAST GETTING FIT!

FITNESS BLAST is another cool way for your students to pace themselves running laps around the gym or outdoor space while performing 10 repetitions of one of four exercises. Each exercise uses a GIF for students to visually use as guidance. Fitness Blast includes 4 separate workouts. Here’s how it works:
  • Run a Lap
  • Complete 10 repetitions of exercise number 1
  • Run a Lap
  • Complete 10 repetitions of exercise number 2
  • Run a Lap
  • Complete 10 repetitions of exercise number 3
  • Run a Lap
  • Complete 10 repetitions of exercise number 4
  • REPEAT if time allows

Depending on the grade level, I will usually “play” Fitness Blast for 4-7 minutes. Prior to the workout, I remind the students to look at the GIFS in order to assist them in using proper pace and form.
