#44: Challenge of the week: One legged 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!

One legged jumps
The one legged jumps are one of the easier exercises that I can think of to perform, though, they can have a lot of impact on your body. Depending on how fit you are, this exercise might not be suitable. Did you have any knee, hip or ankle injuries lately? Do you have a weak back? Be careful when you perform this one and make sure to talk to that specialist I am always talking about when you have any doubt. For me, this exercise is one to really push myself and get better results, as long as I don’t overdo it. When I overdo it, my muscles will let me know in a way I do not want them to let me know things. Therefore, I am going to take it easy on this one. I am going to go for level 3. Let me know how this exercise works out for you!

level 1: 70 reps
level 2: 140 reps
level 3: 210 reps
level 4: 280 reps
level 5: 350 reps
level 6: 700 reps
level 7: 1000 reps
