Zombie Fit Geek's Workout Challenge: Day 15

How did last week go for you? Has it been easy? Are you still in this challenge in hopes that we turn the difficulty setting up?

Well, let’s turn it up to medium.

Its Arms Day and today you will be doing

30 V-Push Ups

Go for a plank like a normal push up, now bring your legs in like you were doing a downward dog yoga pose. Now from there I want you to do push ups.

Power Move: 15 with your right leg up and then switch with 15 with your left leg up.

Modified moves: sets til failure and then try to do them again.

So since a bunch of people asked about my arm workout challenge, here it is.
I found a challenge that was in between “I could do that in my sleep” and “I will die if I try that”, and then I made some changes. I added extra rest days and moved around some. My moms friend is a body builder, and he told her it’s better to have sporadic workout days or else your body will get used to it. I then added shoulder lifts for the same number of push-ups each day, because I needed some shoulder stuff. Now, the biceps curls I thought was kind of stupid, because adding reps without adding weight won’t help with bulk, but since I don’t have heavy weights, I’ve just been doing those each day until I physically can’t.
Mostly what I’ve used this for is a jumping off point. I do at least as many push ups and dips as is scheduled, and then workout from there as needed. I’m just someone who needs a schedule so that I can’t back out.
I’d like to add that I am no expert on working out at all. I know very little about it and have extremely limited equipment, so I would really suggest doing research and looking into a plan that works for you specifically. I also happen to be lucky enough to build muscle fairly easily, so don’t always expect the same results!
Hope this was helpful ^.^

2-Week Plank Challenge: Build Up to a 5-Minute Plank

Plank is one of the most effective total-body moves, so here’s a new challenge for you to conquer - a five-minute plank. Since holding a straight-up plank wouldn’t be any fun (and could end up causing an injury), this challenge mixes up five basic variations to not only tone your abs and arms, but to target the obliques, legs, and upper back as well. Here’s an explanation of how to do each one, followed by the two-week plan. http://bit.ly/1Kxe7FJ

Just in Time For Spring! 21-Day Arm-Sculpting Challenge

Everyone has their own reasons for wanting strong, defined arms; we’re here to help. After following this 21-day arm plan, not only will your arms look toned - you’ll also be stronger. First things first: don’t worry if you’ve never lifted a dumbbell in your life. This arm challenge was designed with everyone in mind - whether it’s your first time working out or you’re at the gym on a daily basis.

Getting started: The challenge consists of five basic exercises that help to target all the areas of your arms. Over the course of the challenge, you will increase the number of reps you’re doing of each exercise, eventually working up to three sets of 15 reps for each exercise.

Below is an explanation of how to do each of the five exercises, followed by the plan itself. Choosing the appropriate size weight is key here - you want one that fatigues your muscles by the end of the three sets. If the challenge ever feels too easy, that’s your cue to increase the weight of the dumbbells (and if you find you are fatiguing too early, decrease the weight amount). Beginners should start the plan with five-pound weights, and for you more-experienced lifters, make this challenge work for you by grabbing a heavier set. http://bit.ly/1cXYARH
