I think you might have misspelled “donuts” as “burpees”. Other than that, it’s definitely easier for me to read, thank you!
I’ll give it a shot.
I snort laughed
Hi Kat, I can understand your feeling. For me there is a thin line between being accountable and stressing out too much about it.
I personally don’t think it’s necessary to post how we did each day. I do sometimes. But often not. And there won’t be people asking you how you did your day. Like: what you did only 2 sets? It’s not the point I think. I am working on following my own advice.
If you don’t know yet how to organise the sets maybe try this. Only that you’d have to stick to the same time for each excercise
Edited: oops, it’ll be 14 mins for all 8 sets.
August will be a challenge.
Perfect!! Thank you!!
I’m in, I didn’t finish July, but I’m giving August a new try! Thanx for tagging me @Becsta, even though I failed July!
There’s no such thing as failure! It’s just
about jumping in and giving it a go and you did just that
Because of my health issues those are impossible for me. However I do want to motivate myself. Am I welcome to check in here daily completing a walk around my block? That would be a good half mile for me. Perhaps as I commit to it I could range further.
Yes absolutely that’s fine!
I think that’s a wonderful idea!! Welcome to the challenge
Well it’s Monday 1st August here in Oz and the August Challenge is officially kicking off! As @Diamonster mentioned earlier, the SmartWOD Timer is a great app. I set mine up as follows
8 rounds of 1 minute with a 10 second break between each round. I found 1 minute worked well as - 20 seconds squats + 10 seconds jumping jacks + 10 seconds to set up into plank + 20 seconds plank.
Day 1 done
Thx for the pics of the app. Will definitely help.
No worries, I actually had to google jumping jacks over here we call them star jumps
Star jumps are a thing here but like a more advanced jumping jack. How come you did a min. Just cause your badass? I was gonna do 20 for 8 rounds with 10 sec break
I set 1 minute rounds and in that 1 minute, did 20 seconds squats, 10 seconds jumping jacks, 10 seconds to set up a plank and 20 seconds plank = 1 minute. Took a 10 second break and then repeated until I finished 8 rounds.
I’ll be honest, I have never heard of star jumps b4, but that’s cool! I like to learn and now I’ll look them up and see how they differ!!
Day 1 is done. Lol. I feel like I’ve gone from walking in the park(early on in July challenge) to climbing Mt. Everest without any gear!!!
