28 Days of Barre
*Due to the Bank Holiday, this challenge begins on May 4th (Tuesday) and therefore the first week is 6 days long. If you're starting this after Tuesday 4th, just make a note that it's 6 days on week 1, the rest will be 7.
Welcome to The May Challenge, where you are going to commit to completing one video a day, dedicating time for yourself. It is important to know every day that there is going to be a window of time just for you. It's not about wearing yourself out over the month. Instead, you will build a healthy habit/routine of movement, a better focus on form and, of course, improved fitness, strength and mobility.
Now that we're heading into the summer, we might find ourselves with more plans (yay!), but hopefully this challenge shows you that you can make time to move your body even just for a little while.
Each day is planned out for you but you can switch things up. Just do something. If you're too tired, you can go for a walk, or even start a shorter video - you'd be surprised about what you can achieve once you commit to start. After you complete each video, you can make a note on how you felt and track your progress.
Order does not matter. My programming is a guide. You don't have to do each day in a row. Here are some ways you can customise it:
If you plan on attending a live class, you can do that instead of a video.
For example, if you want to do Wednesday's workout on Monday because it suits you better, then you can do that and tick it off. It doesn't matter that you're not completing workouts in order.
If you want to go for a run (or other exercise) instead of a video, you can note that in the tracker. It is a barre challenge but I understand you do other things too.
Note: Things happen, schedules change and last minute plans come up. You can take longer than 28 days to complete this if you want. It will not expire. Instead of skipping a workout, you can always take a day to do a different activity and pick up where you left off.
