I saw this video about a group of Arbonne consultants trying the “30 Days to Fit” challenge. You know what I’ve always hated about these types of commercials? It’s that the people never really seem to be all that healthy. Naturally you want to show people having dramatic improvements while trying the product because companies want to show that their product will work for you, right?
Well, I always wondered what would happen if a “regular” person were to actually try this product and show everything that they are actually doing for 30 days.
Since no one is naturally going to just volunteer to try this 30 Days to Fit challenge, I guess that I have to volunteer myself to be the guinea pig. I am hoping that my mom will also be on board with me for the next 30 days. In addition to trying out these Arbonne products, we will also do the Tai Cheng workout series.
Tomorrow, I am going to present my kettlebell class with a 1 month challenge, which will also be part of my “30 Days to Fit.” We will do 100 pushups and 100 bodyweight squats every day for the month of September. These will not be full pushups, or squats, though. I am a big fan of “Convict Conditioning,” so all of our pushups will be wall-pushups as well as chair squats.
The reason we will be doing wall pushups and chair squats is more to develop the tendons and ligaments more so than developing the prime movers. This is the genius of “Convict Conditioning”– the easier exercises build the tendons and joints so that one is later able to do the harder levels without risk of injury.
Overall I feel that not enough people spend time on corrective exercise– working the joints through the full range of motion; strengthening the ligaments and tendons; and actually doing things to bullet-proof those joints. I am hoping to try a new challenge in October after spending a month improving my mobility and dynamic motion with Tai Cheng, bullet-proofing my knees, shoulders, hips, and elbows with these corrective pushups and squat exercises, and monitoring my diet and supplement intake with Arbonne’s Essential supplement products.
