January 2022 Fitness Challenge

Time for a new Challenge!

Our first one of 2022!

I don’t care what you want to call it, a resolution, a goal, a plan, an idea, a dream…

What do you want out of 2022 for you personally? Is it a career goal? A personal goal? A health goal? A fitness goal?

Mine is kind of all of the above. I have things in my head that I would like to accomplish this year. But most of them revolve around me putting my own health and fitness first. That said, I am rethinking the decision about officially closing my studio. I have decided that I will reevaluate my situation come Spring. No matter what, I will NOT be adding a full load like I did before. It takes too much time away from my family, my home, and MYSELF! I also work a 40(often 40+) hour a week job, and I was not leaving enough time to really take care of myself.

OK, enough about me and my plans, let’s get to this Challenge!

It is a bit different from some I have done in the past. It will be 3 exercises each day, and the reps will build weekly by adding additional sets. Each day also has within it, a cardio element. And because it will get to be a little more work as it builds, I have made Sunday a Rest/Self-Care/Stretch day.

As always, the daily workout will be posted on my Like Page

I will add the modification videos that you can start with and build that I found on YouTube at the bottom, and the Stretch Workout will be just below the calendar once I finish it(fingers crossed for my camera equipment! If it fails me, I do have a backup YouTube stretch workout in mind.

As promised, here is a video for you to use as a simple guide to see what kinds of stretches I would like to see you do on rest day Sundays, or follow along. This can also be done throughout the week to help with flexibility and mobility.
