August Fitness Challenge

As a follow up to my last blog post on women’s athletic clothing, I decided to create a fitness challenge for the month of August. Creativity and Couture is still very much a fashion blog- but this month we are focusing on fitness!

Each week, I will post one specific exercise for you to do daily- these workouts are meant to be an addition to and not in place of your regular workouts. You will do as many reps of this workout as the high temperature is forecasted that day. And yes, I am well aware that  August is traditionally the hottest month of the year. 🙂

Are you ready for week #1?! Today is August 1st, so there is no time like the present! This week’s exercise is the lunge. To execute, stand in place with your abs gently contracted and your hands on your hips. Take a large step forward with your right foot so that your right knee is at a 90 degree angle with the ground. IMG_4386

Then, stand back up and straighten your legs so that it looks like this:IMG_4385

 

Repeat with the left leg so that your total number of reps is split evenly between both legs. For example, if the high is 84 today then you should complete 42 lunges on each leg.

I will be doing this fitness challenge all month with you, so feel free to contact me with any comments or suggestions! Stay tuned for next week’s exercise as well as a special post dedicated to the city of Chicago.
