Alphabet Exercise Challenge: Details and Week 1


Who’s up for a little game? I’ll tell you before we even start that the prize is a rockin’ body and a little knowledge. Also, anyone who plays wins. Sounds too good to be true right? It’s really not, the only stipulation is that you have to stick with it and work for it!

Interested? Let me tell you what I’m talking about. I developed a little workout schedule using letters of the alphabet:

Word of the day Alphabet Workout ||

To use the chart, I’ll give you a word for each day and you’ll do the exercises that correspond with each letter of the word. For example, if the word is RETICULATE, your exercise routine for the day will be:

R: 20 Lying Double Leg Lifts
E: 60 Jumping Jacks
T: 20 Burpees
I: 30 Squats
C: 15 Jump Squats
U: 30 Mountain Climbers
L: 60 Butt Kickers
A: 1 Minute Plank
T: 20 Burpees
E: 60 Jumping Jacks

When pairing each exercise with a letter I made sure that the most commonly used letters in the alphabet contained exercises that focused on cardio, core, legs, and abs so you’ll notice there’s lots of jumping jacks and burpees in this particular exercise because the word I chose has common letters. The words will obviously vary greatly so that our weekly workouts will be comprehensive. I’ll even give you the definitions for fun ๐Ÿ™‚

It’s the New Year and I know you’re looking for a fun way to involve some more exercise in your life so give this a shot! I’ll post once per week for a month and supply all your words for the week, Thursday will be a rest day. For the purpose of this challenge if the exercise indicates something should be done a certain number it will always mean “per side” if applicable. If you aren’t sure how to do a certain exercise, YouTube has a million videos that will help and you can also contact me as well. Feel free to comment below or instagram me, I will respond! The only thing you’ll need is some weights, and those you’ll have to choose depending on what you can handle. As the month goes on you’ll probably want to increase. It’s ok if you can’t finish each set in the very beginning – you’ll get there! Don’t forget to stretch before and after too ๐Ÿ™‚
