October Challenge

Roman Chair.

Place your back against a wall, with your feet shoulder width apart and about 2 feet away from the wall.  Slowly bend your knees until your thighs are parallel to the floor.  You should look like you are sitting in a chair.  Make sure your knees are at a 90 degree angle to your lower legs.

Make sure you are pushing your entire back against the wall.


October 1-5: 15 seconds

October 6-10: 30 seconds

October 11-15: 45 seconds

October 16-20: 1 minute

October 21-25: 75 seconds

October 26-31: 90 seconds

If it is easy, then lift your arms over your head.

Let me know what you think — how hard is this?!

    Can I jump in now from the beginning?

      Yes! Just jump in at the beginning and you’ll be stronger at the end of the month!

    Thank you for the clear description and realistic goal for the month.

    Is it ok to do the challenge on days I’m doing cardio?

      Yes, this is fine to do if you’re doing cardio.
