#46: Challenge of the week: High Jogs

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!

High Jogs
Something like high jogs would normally be a part of my routine when I am doing a circuit training, or a running work-out. High jogs are an easy way to raise the heart rate, but also a very welcome variation or active rest exercise when I am working with heavy weights. I recently started to go to the gym again to get my portion of heavy weights there and I must say, since I go there, exercises like these are becoming more and more common to me for exactly that purpose: high heart rate and if you will, active rest. Try to incorporate this exercise into your regular training as warm-up, doing it less intense, or as a full blown exercise in your circuit, giving it all you have.

level 1: 150 seconds (2.5 minutes)
level 2: 300 seconds (5 minutes)
level 3: 600 seconds (10 minutes)
level 4: 1200 seconds (20 minutes)
level 5: 2400 seconds (40 minutes)
level 6: 3000 seconds (50 minutes)
level 7: 4500 seconds (75 minutes)
