Good morning friends! I promise my Boston Marathon recap is coming soon!!! But first, hello MAY!!! Where did the YEAR go??? I am excited about May for a few reasons, one being that it means summer is almost here, the Refresh Summit is in 16 days, this will be my first Mother’s Day as a mom, and I am taking on a fun new project this month with Propel as an ambassador with their Add Flavor Challenge!
The company will be challenging me to add flavor to my life with some fun fitness challenges this month! I love me some Kiwi Strawberry Propel and this challenge is just in time to hydrate well for SUMMER!
Man there are so many FITNESS FEARS that I have yet to tackle, but I think the one that I have really been wanting to do but just haven’t worked hard enough to is a PULL UP!!! I so badly (don’t ask why) want to be able to do at least one hanging pull up! I know I am strong enough and I know that this can be done in a month as long as I build up my strength as well as work hard at doing some assisted pull-ups each day and making progress!!
- Start from a dead hang with straight elbows, palms facing away from you.
- Keeping your chest up and your shoulders back, squeeze your glutes and cross your feet.
- Pull yourself up so that your chin rests over the bar.
- Lower down and repeat.
I love this encouragement for women and pull-ups!
So here is the Pull Up Progression Plan from TribeSports.com that I’m going to use to tackle this FITNESS FEAR!!
