VPF Challenge: Flutter Kicks

As many of you know (and if you didn’t, now you do!) my favorite fitness page is Vegan Power Fitness.  A few months back, we started doing challenges and now, every Friday you can hop over to the VPF page and see his newest fitness challenges.

I’ll admit, I have been slacking on fitness, so I couldn’t wait for the weekly challenges to start. I’m the girl who just loves to the feel the burn of the muscles I am using. Sick, I know. But in a weird, twisted way, it’s great motivator for me.  🙂

So first up, flutter kicks. Challenge accepted.

He makes it look so easy. I thought to myself, Yeah, I so got this in the bag.

Wrong.

Here is the link to the video.

I started off strong in my first set or so I thought.  What felt like 30 seconds turned out to be only 10. ha ha! As the bo was timing me, I thought he was joking, until he showed me. OK. So I took a 20 second rest in between and I’m all giving myself “you can do it” pep talk in the back of my head. I start in for the next round – and ugh – the giggle factor kicks as I am only 8 seconds into the set. Yes, I giggled. Ya know why? My abs were burning so bad I couldn’t do anything but giggle. It was the shock of how on fire my abs were. And of course that ended my second set. My 3rd set, I am not going to lie, I did 6 seconds and that was the furthest I could go. 🙂  The aim was to try and hit 3 sets 30 seconds with 20 seconds of rest in between.  As you can see, I didn’t quite have this in the bag, but I tried, so that is all that matters.

There really isn’t a modified version to do of this either, and if there is, VPF isn’t tell us :-p But really, with how my abs feel this morning (sore, fried, overcooked) I don’t want a modified version -this is actually a move I want to work on (which sort of makes me question my sanity!) Off the top of my head I can’t really think of a move that works your abs like this one, although I am sure VPF knows of one or two that do.

Have you (or will you) try this challenge?

V.P.F. Challenges

Vegan Power Fitness (VPF) Challenges.

Awesome!

What’s it all about it?

I am teaming up with VPF and I am ready to take on some challenges! (I think.. :-p haha just kidding – I am!).

How it’s going to work?

I will be receiving various exercises from VPF in which I will attempt to do as many as I can, even if it’s just 1 rep.  I will post the exercise – how many I did – either some video or photos and some commentary on how I felt after doing it.

I am going to set some goals for myself (numbers to hit) and will continue to work and push myself to hit those numbers, no matter how long it takes.

Why?

Well, who doesn’t love a good challenge, right?  I also couldn’t think of a better way to push myself, build strength, endurance, (and all the other added benefits from each exercise) with encouragement and motivation from not just VPF but from all of my readers.  And if I can do it, so can anyone.

I have my first challenge ready for tomorrow.  Should make for a spectacular post, I am sure!

So now that I have acknowledged this, I will not be backing down 🙂

Unless I am given 20 push-ups in which case I shall just run screaming in the other direction. Just kidding!

Much Love!
