Woohoo!!! June has come and gone and I managed to bang out a 5:00 minute plank and I’m ready to push myself and my challenge group with another task.
For July, we are going to do a 30 Day Wall Sit Challenge. Here are some important things to remember:
- Make sure you have your back completely flat against the wall! (at ALL times)
- Your legs should be at a 90 degree angle and about 2 feet from the wall
- Your knees should also be directly above your ankles
- Remember to have your legs shoulder width apart
- And…..Tighten your core!
One of the things to remember is that the exercise is as if you were trying to sit down on a chair.
Tip: Try and place your hands on top of your head or if you want to push yourself a little more, hold them out in from of you. Whatever you do, don’t cheat and put them on your thighs!!
The two major muscles this exercise will target are your quadriceps and hamstrings. If you would like to strengthen your adductors, place a medium size ball between your legs and squeeze it as you are in the position.If you would like to join this challenge or do it on your own, here is the schedule. Make sure to hold yourself accountable because in the end, you’re only hurting yourself if you don’t push yourself.
Here’s to another awesome month of getting fit!!
