What Is #THEGIVETEAM15 CHALLENGE?
Why Should I Do #THEGIVETEAM15 CHALLENGE?
Why SHOULDN’T you do #THEGIVETEAM15 CHALLENGE?
Ok. Let’s try a different approach. It'll make YOU stronger and it'll strengthen THE GIVE TEAM. First, this is YOUR opportunity to participate as a REMOTE GIVE TEAM MEMBER for a couple weeks. You’ll show each team member they’re not alone in their mission to get stronger. Second, it'll force a conversation with that voice between your ears telling you, "I don't think you can do this." Then you'll smile and keep going. That's how we do it on The Give Team, because that's how you get stronger. You'll take a picture or video of yourself before, during or after then post it on Instagram tagging #thegiveteam15. You’ll feel better.
What is The Give Team 15?
The Give Team 15 is the team warm up before Saturday workouts. It consists of fifteen body weight exercises, one per minute. The goal is to do as many reps of that exercise over 45 seconds, take 15 seconds to recover, then move on to the next exercise. You can use the timer on your phone, or program it into an app (we use the app Seconds which works well). The exercises are detailed below,
So What Do I Do?
Ok, But __(insert lame excuse for not participating here)___.
GIVE TEAM MOTTO 51: It’s either an excuse or a challenge. You choose.
Last season we had someone participate who recently had knee surgery (shout out to HEATHER). She reached out to me with questions. Not excuses. We came up with an alternative plan to accommodate her challenge. We can do the same for you. JUST. DO. THE. WORK.
How Much Does it Cost to Participate?
ENOUGH ALREADY! What Are the 15 Exercises?
Here’s the list. If you're not sweating, you haven't pushed yourself hard enough. If you struggle, slow down. Go to the next alternative. BUT DON'T STOP, and keep telling yourself "IT'S ONLY 15 MINUTES. IT'S ONLY 15 MINUTES. IT'S ONLY 15 MINUTES." Don’t know what the exercise is? CLICK THE NAME - it’ll take you to a video showing how to do it.
