WHAT:  At Home Lifestyle Challenge
Today’s Daily Challenge:
It doesn’t take much to make someone’s day! Today’s challenge is to spread some happiness, in the smallest way. 
In a time of distancing, we don’t need to feel disconnected. When we serve others we learn how good it feels to connect and that we add so much value to one another’s lives.
We’re in it together!
Stronger together!

Bulgarian Split Squat X 12 each leg at working weight
*Follow each set with: Single Arm Renegade Rows X 1 minute – Video

Coaches’ Notes:
For 3 sets, complete both stations every 2.5 minutes. Rest remaining time of each round to recover.

*Single Arm Renegade Row: Using a Db, Kb or any object that you can find in the house that is challenging and mimics the same movement pattern. This can also be performed with no weight and still be challenging.

*Chair/Bench Dips: Using a chair, bench, couch, side of your bed, counter, etc.. See video for suggestions on how to perform this.

*Bicep Curl: Using a Db, Kb, band, plate or any object that you can find in the house that is challenging and mimics the same movement pattern. The weight should feel moderate. See video for movement cues!

*Front Raise: Using a plate, book or any object that you can find in the house that is challenging and mimics the same movement pattern. The weight should feel light to moderate. See video for movement cues!

*Bent Over Flys: Using a pair of soup cans, books, bottles, grocery bags or any object that you can find in the house that is challenging and mimics the same movement pattern. The weight should feel light to moderate. See video for movement cues!

*Lateral Jumping Lunges: This can be jumping laterally, regular jumping lunges, lunges in place or static split squats. Choose an optimization that works for your current conditioning.
