Hard & Tight Rep Challenge Workout - Day 4 Week One of The February 30 Day Challenge

February 10, 2012 4 min read

Hi Bodyrockers, Our February 30 Day Challenge continues from the Turks and Caicos. The Island we are staying on is beautiful in every way that you can imagine the Caribbean to be, but unfortunately the Wi-Fi here at the hotel is too slow for us to upload videos for you guys. We are powering through the next few days with photo breakdowns of the workouts and then we will be posting our workout videos once we get back home. We are in a great position to be in the best shape of our lives for the summer. If you are feeling uncomfortable in your own skin and have spent summer after summer sitting on the sidelines and not enjoying everything that the warm weather has to offer then get on board with our 30 day challenge and give it a go. There is nothing worse than that feeling of selling yourself short and telling yourself that maybe next year will be different. Life is best lived in the present moment - not sometime next year when you get around to it. Why don't you join in? We are here right now to help you in anyway that we can - everything about the BodyRock movement is free and open to everyone, and the global community of BodyRockers  support and encourage each other in every way :) Here are some pictures of what it looks like here and of today's workout:

Our rooms overlook the main pool area. Each area in the Beaches resort has it's own theme. We are staying in the "Italian Village". Do you remember the where's Waldo books? Can you spot Lisa-Marie BodyRocking somewhere in this picture? (Hint: she is doing an abs exercise).

This was our first full day here, and after sleeping off our travel until mid-morning we got up and headed down to the pool area.

There are plenty of clean eating options here at the resort for BodyRockers and it's all inclusive so we have been nibbling at everything :) If you guys want to see the best possible results then make sure that you are following along with our Diet Challenge that Lisa has been posting on her facebook page here. If you BodyRock and follow our simple clean eating approach to food you will see amazing results much faster.

Here is today's workout: This is a pyramid workout for a total of 275 Reps

You will perform 10 Reps Per Exercise.  When 10 reps per exercise is complete you will do 9 then 8,7,6,5 etc down to the final round of 1 rep per exercise.

Tuck Jump Reverse Lunge.

Start in a sitting position with your legs underneath you and your hands at your sides or out in front of you.

Jump up onto your feet keeping your knees bent and core tight.

Perform a Jump Tuck by jumping up and touching your hands to your knees. Jump up as high as you can for your agility level.

Land softly on the balls of your feet and bend your knees slightly to absorb the shock. Pick up your Pink Sandbag.

Raise your Pink Sandbag overhead and do a press.

Next step into a backward lunge. If you don’t have aPink Sandbag you can do the tuck jump with a backward lunge using your bodyweight.If you can’t do a tuck jump you can get up by placing one foot at a time underneath you jump as high as you can touching your hands to your knees. Please note that you will do the Jump Tucks and right leg backwards lunge for 10 reps then follow with Jump Tucks and left leg backwards lunges for 10 reps. Don't alternate legs!

Tricep Push Up

Hands should be shoulder width apart. This is primarily a tricep exercise.Lower yourself to the top of the BodyRockEqualizer ...

and press yourself back up.

Modification Tricep Press for Beginners:

Starting on your knees, place your hands shoulder width apart. Slowly bend your elbows and lower yourself towards the BodyRockEqualizer. You can do this exercise standing off of a wall or kneeling in front of your sofa or coffee table. Just make sure that you use a stable platform.

Push off the BodyRockEqualizer engaging your core and triceps and push yourself back up into the starting position.

Exploding Upright Row

Get into the pushup position with your hands on thePink Sandbag

Perform a half burpee bringing your legs up towards the bag.

Grabbing thePink Sandbag in the middle strap row the sandbag up to shoulder height level. If you don't have a sandbag then you can use some kind of alternate weight (get creative) or you can either do it with bodyweight only or swap out this exercise for Burpees.

Reverse Pull Up

Get yourself into the starting position. Make sure that your back is straight and you are not dropping your butt down. The further you extend your legs the harder this exercise becomes. I am in the beginner posture above with my feet planted under me knees and the weight of my legs in my heels.

Hold your core tight and pull yourself up. Control the movement on the way down - don't just drop back into the starting position. If you need to take a break then do so - but don't compromise form for speed. This is a tough exercise, but it is great for the back and core.
