Weekend Challenge: WALL SITS
This week, we’re mixing it up. Remember doing Wall Sits in elementary school gym? They’re back. Get into position this weekend and see how long you can hold this challenging move. Seriously. Hold on until your muscles are screaming! Note your time—we’ll be asking for it on Monday morning. So…ARE YOU IN?
WH WEEKEND CHALLENGE: T-Stabilization!
Start off in the pushup position. Keeping your arms straight and your body rigid, shift your weight onto your left arm and rotate your torso up and to the right until you’re facing sideways. Pause for 3 seconds, then lower back down. Do the same on the other side. That’s one rep. Want to make it harder? Add a pushup before the rotation.
Complete 3 sets of 10 reps of this move before every meal this weekend! So…ARE YOU IN?
WH WEEKEND CHALLENGE: Donkey Kick/Bird Dog!
These moves might not look difficult, but trust us, they are. In the modified version, simply hold your abs tight for 10 seconds (breathing throughout). That’s one rep. Same idea in the regular and advanced versions, but you’re lifting your leg or your leg and opposite arm.
This weekend, before each meal, complete 3 sets of 10 reps.

WH WEEKEND CHALLENGE: Squats!
This Saturday and Sunday, do 3 sets of 10 squats (any version) before each meal.

This makes the squat one of the best all-around exercises you can do! So, ARE YOU IN?
