Remember five years ago (can’t believe I’ve been blogging for five years!) when I took the One Hundred Push Ups Challenge? And then four years ago when I took the Two Hundred Crunches Challenge? And then two years ago when I took the Plankathon Challenge? Well, I’ve decided that it’s about time I complete another challenge. This time, I’m doing the One Fifty Dips Challenge.
The concept of this six-week program is to be able to complete 150 consecutive dips by the end of it. Fun, right?!
I recently stopped doing boot camp (partly because work and such got busy enough that it was getting tough for me to drag myself out of bed at 5am, and partly because I just started getting tired of it – I need to switch up my exercise every six months to a year or so or else I get bored of things), and so I’ve been trying to decide what’s next for me fitness-wise. I got a swim cap last week and I intend to start swimming again. The snow is already melting, so Mr Science and I will be able to enjoy outdoor jogging again too. And other than that, I’ve chosen to do strength training at home – which led me to starting the One Fifty Dips Challenge.
Triceps dips are pretty cool, and they target muscles which are often overlooked. Generally we focus more on biceps and don’t pay as much attention to toning and strengthening the triceps. It’s good for us to work on ALL of the muscles!
Today I completed Day Three of Week One for the challenge, which involved completing a total of 56 triceps dips (broken down into five sets). I’m looking forward to building on that as the weeks go by!
Will you be doing One Fifty Dips with me? Is there another fitness challenge that you’re taking right now? Share in the comments section below!
