For our first installment of our Get Fit Challenge’s #TrainerTipThursday, Dan LeBlanc of Crux Fitness offers advice on how to challenge yourself every day:
“Start each day with purpose that relates to your goals. Challenging yourself daily, specifically first thing in the morning, will set the tone for the day, and contribute to the productivity of the day, week, and overall success of whatever goals you have. Try this: three basic exercises that lay the foundation for everything else you pursue in fitness: push ups, sit ups, and burpees. Do as many of each exercise as you can for a minute. Now try and increase that number by 2 every single day for a week. Log your progress. Continue this for a month. As you get better, increase the intensity by changing things up like adding weight, varying time, or challenging a friend. No matter what, form, technique, and safety are paramount, as these aspects are what will guarantee muscular breakdown and guarantee a biological change in the brain, and the body.”
