Spring Fitness Challenge – Week Six

I am revisiting some old favourites for the sixth week of my 12 Week Spring Fitness Challenge but this time I’m raising the bar!

How I went in Week Five:

My goals for the fifth week of the challenge were:

  • Dancing for fitness.

I’m went to my first Zumba class in ages and had a blast! However, my little man decided halfway through the class to join me and so I finished it holding him in my arms as he slept despite the blasting music. I also had a go at a new routine from The Fitness Marshall which is a great way to try some new dance steps in the comfort of your own home.

  • Lots of lunges.

I managed to do 20 lunges on each leg five times last week  and, to be honest, I still consider them to be one of my least favourite exercises (but I’m glad I did it).

  • Add more weights. 

I found time for four free weights sessions and upped the intensity a little by focusing on my triceps.

Goals for Week Six:

My goals for the sixth week of the challenge are:

10,000 steps: I want to really push myself this week and finally  average 10,000 steps a day over the week for a total of at least 70,000 steps. I used to be able to hit this target quite easily and now the weather is so good I am hoping it will be within my reach again.

Abdominals and pelvic floor exercises: I have added these back into the routine and my goal is to complete my two round of my abdominal and pelvic floor exercises set by my physio each and every day this week.

Time for 60 squats: I will be doing 60 squats every day this week for a total of 420!

What are your goals for the week?
