Do you want to do 200 burpees? If you are like me (#ihateburpees), the answer is probably a resounding “NOPE!”
Well if you are going to play along with our game this month… you better choose wisely!
Welcome to Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans March Madness!
For those of you non-sports fans, let me explain a little. Every March college basketball teams enter a large tournament called March Madness. There are brackets, and some people join pools where they try to pick the winner. The brackets are kind of a big deal. I’m not particularly a college basketball fan, but I have a pre-teen son who love sports. All of them. So because of this, I know learn about different sports.
This month at the Sisterhood we are going to shake things up a bit. Our fitness challenge for March is inspired by the brackets of March Madness!
Here’s how our March Madness Fitness Bracket works:
Down each side of the page you will see 4 groups (a total of 8 movements) of exercises. Look at each of the 4 brackets of movements down the left side of the page. Circle 1 movement from each bracket (ex. Burpees or mountain climbers) and write those down. You should have 4 movements. This list of 4 movements is your 1st workout for the week. You will do 25 reps of each exercise. For your 2nd workout of the week, repeat this process for the movements listed down the right side of the page. You will have TWO workouts each week, one from the left side of the bracket and one from the right. You can choose which two days of the week you do your workouts.
Week One starts on Tuesday, 3/1 – You will have 2 workouts that have 25 reps each of the 4 movements you select. Again, you can choose which two days to complete your workouts. Select 1 movement from each bracket. You will select a total of 4 exercises from each side of the page. Each side of the page is 1 workout.
You will do 25 reps of each movement you select in week 1.
Week 2 will start on Tuesday 3/8 – Remember those exercises you did not select in week 1? Write those on the week 2 brackets. Now select 1 movement from each bracket. You will select a total of 2 exercises from each side of the page. Each side of the page is 1 workout.
You will do 50 reps of each movement you select in week 2.
Week 3 will start on Tuesday 3/15 – Now, just like you did on Week 2, write the exercises you did not select in week 2 and write them on the week 3 brackets. There are only 2 movements on each side of the page left! Pick one from each side of the page. Each side of the page is 1 workout.
You will do 75 reps of each movement you select in week 3.
It’s the finals! There are only 2 movements left. Each one is going to represent a workout.
Pick one movement. You will do 100 reps of that movement!
Your final workout is the remaining movement…
Write that movement in the box in the middle of the page and do 200 reps of that movement!
