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!
Part One – JUMPING
Part Two – PLANKING
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.

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.
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.

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.
