#30: Challenge of the week: Tuck jumps

I like to give myself a weekly challenge in order to stay motivated. There are 7 levels for every challenge, so everyone can join in. Feel free to modify the challenges so they fit your personal needs. Remember always to listen to your body, don’t push yourself too hard but keep moving. Doing only these challenges is not a balanced way to get or stay fit. If you have doubts about exercises, or your body, always ask a specialist for advice!

Tuck jumps
Tuck jumps are definitely not the exercises that I do best, both in form as in speed. I will probably go for a level 2, maybe 3, but that is only when I feel my body keeps stable and my knees and ankles will not ache. Pleas be careful with doing these. When you are insecure about even doing them, why not try jumping with a jump rope instead? change the reps to minutes (divided by 10) and do some nice jumps lower to the ground…

level 1: 70 reps / 7 minutes
level 2: 140 reps / 17 minutes
level 3: 210 reps / 21 minutes
level 4: 280 reps / 28 minutes
level 5: 350 reps / 35 minutes
level 6: 700 reps / 70 minutes
level 7: 1000 reps / 100 minutes
