Most of us love a challenge, but still, the prospect of a 28-day challenge workout program may be a little daunting. A 28-day challenge is a great way to improve your health and transform your body, but you need to be prepared. So, here’s what you can expect from a 28-day fitness program.
The main aim of a 28-day challenge is to build up your stamina. There is usually an objective to achieve a fitness goal at the end of the 28 days, but this may seem far too difficult at the start. Each day, you will start to build up your stamina, gradually increasing your fitness level as the challenge progresses. For example, the aim of a 28-day plank challenge is to be able to hold the plank position for 240 seconds at the end of the challenge, but it starts with a hold of just 20 seconds.
The Benefits of a 28-day fitness program
The benefits of a 28-day program will depend on the specific program. For example, the plank challenge is designed to give you a full body workout. The correct form will tone your belly as the stomach muscles, and the inner core is strengthened. It can also increase flexibility and reduce back pain. A 28-day plank challenge can also help to improve your posture, which can also alleviate pains and strains as you stand straighter and don’t favour one hip, knee or shoulder over another.
Form is Vital
While a 28-day challenge may seem straightforward, you need to appreciate that form is vital. Since you may be performing exercises in short increments, it is especially important that you are doing them correctly. For example, if you’re performing planks, you need to keep your spine straight and avoid putting your neck and back under pressure. If you fail to fully engage your core or increase pressure on your hips, you will not only not enjoy the full benefits of the exercise, but also put yourself at risk of an injury.
Consider a Coach
If you want to achieve maximum results from your 28-day fitness program, you may want to consider coaching. A personal trainer can not only help you to monitor your progress but also ensure that your form is correct to minimise the risk of injury. A trainer can also guide you through health and wellness options to optimise your fitness levels during and after the challenge.
