29.06.20 - Day 1 Bodyweight & Cardio challenge

I've not done any of my challenges in a while & thought maybe it's time for one. So here is my 15 day bodyweight challenge.

The bodyweight section of each day will consist of: 100 pull-ups, 100 lunges, 100 air squats, 100 rocking calf raises, 150 push ups & at least 100 reps of whatever abs exercises I feel like doing.

& the cardio section of the day will be: 1,000 single-unders, 2 mile run & 100 calorie bike (I'll replace the bike with swimming if the weather is nice enough).

I can split the day up however I wish, but I have to complete all reps each day or I fail & have to start again.

  • Cardio challenge
  • 2 mile run
  • 1,000 single-unders
  • 100 calorie bike
  • Bodyweight challenge
  • 100 pull-ups
  • 100 walking lunges
  • 100 air squats
  • 100 rocking calf raises
  • 150 push-ups
  • Min 100 reps abs (170 today)
  • Starting physique:

 

Commentary (each day I will give my training split for how I did the workouts):

  • 10 sets of 100 single-unders & 10 pull-ups
  • 5 sets of 20 walking lunges & 20 air squats
  • 5 sets of 30 push-ups & 20 rocking calf raises
  • 5 sets of 20 cal bike & 10 knee raises
  • 3 sets of 20 crunch & 20 bicycle kicks
  • 2 mile run

 

Updates: After having completed today I felt rather good, it's not actaully an overly excessive day; however, I'm not naive, I created this knowing that come day 4 or 5 my body will feel very taxed & I will need to be clever in how I split my days for best recovery & progression etc.

Coronavirus

Unfortunately I will not be able to train at gyms for the foreseeable, this is due to COVID-19 & the government are closing all gyms in the interest of us all. Social distancing is very important at this moment in time so I will be following these guidelines and training from home.

This does; however, mean that my training will take a knock and the schedule will have to change, but this is where we find out what we're made of and what we can achieve just with pure will power.
