Your mission: Complete twelve workouts between December 1st and January 1st
If you’re a Performance Fitness member these twelve workouts can be any combination of personal training sessions, group training classes, a DIY workout from the Performance Fitness Exercise Guide (don’t have a PFit Exercise Guide? email us and get one!), a WOW, or one of the 12 Days Challenge Workouts.
The important thing between now and January 1st is to get in your workouts. Don’t have an hour to workout or can’t get to class? No worries! For this challenge, intensity trumps time.
Not a Performance Fitness member? You can still play along (although not win the prizes) by following the 12 Days Workouts OR you could become a member and be eligible for the prizes and get the full benefit of training with our cast of wacky, yet loveable fitness experts.
Workouts will be posted daily, Monday through Friday. Post to comments below to get credit for completing the workout
Workout 7 – Step It Up
This workout challenges you to step things up in two ways. First, you’ll do a set of max rep push-ups, and then you’ll do stair or step (get it?) sprints.
Part 1 – Pick a challenging plank push-up variation (NO KNEES!). Your choices are incline (hands elevated on window sill, counter, chairs, step), floor, decline, or close grip. Do as many PERFECT plank push-ups as you can. You may rest in plank position if necessary, but once you can no longer push yourself up, the challenge is over.
Part 2 – Do 10 rounds of 30 seconds on/30 seconds of stair climb. Run up every other step and run down EVERY step for 30 seconds. Recover for 30 seconds and repeat 9 more times.
Post your push-up variation, total number of push-ups, and numbers per round of stair climbs to comments.
