If you want to start regular exercising at home but you don’t really know how – start with us. We’re going to add one exercise a day for 6 days of the week.

You’ll do something new every day, and every day you’ll do a little bit more. Then take a one-day break for regeneration and start the next week. Week by week, take little steps to be active on a daily basis. You’ll know what to do.

This is the very beginning of the final Week 52. 

For the final 10 weeks of our 52-week challenge, we combine the best exercises from Weeks 1-42 into full-body routines. You’re more than welcome to join us here. You might also want to check out the complete routines of the previous weeks.

A new exercise every day also on Facebook. Like us to be up to date!

Week 52: Monday

TO DO TODAY:

  1. General warm-up 3 min.
  2. Dynamic stretching 3 min.
  3. GRASSHOPPERS 4 x 30 sec.

Set your REC IT on: Work: 30 sec. Rest: 15 sec. Rounds: 4

The first exercise

GRASSHOPPERS – a whole-body exercise. First do a 3-minute general warm-up and some dynamic stretching. Next, get into the starting push-up position, put your feet a little closer to your hands and bend the knees (the body is still supported only by the toes and hands). Take your right leg under your core to the left, close to your left hand. Go back to the starting position, and take your left leg to the right hand. Keep a nice pace, and as you master the movement you can speed up a little. Do 4 series of grasshoppers, 30 seconds each with 15-second breaks in between.
