Crossfit Challenge Day 24

Today do:

24 sit ups, 24 push ups (or sub exercise) and 24 air squats (or step ups.)

Post to comments when you've done it!

For the last couple of weeks, my hands have been going numb again. Not every night, but occasionally, and this past week I had a little trouble during the day. The only difference has been the challenge. Then yesterday when I was on push up #19 (I was doing them all at once), I got a shooting pain down my right forearm. I'm going to email the climbing cutie and see if he can recommend a different exercise to substitute. I can't risk my hands again!

Melissa, head over to iTunes and find one of the YogaJournal podcasts. You might want to try some yoga instead of the push-ups. You'll still build the muscles, but it will be gentler and probably easier on your arms/hands.

I haven't done the exercises yet, but will NOT skip today, even though I'm skipping my run in favor of writing this morning.

I did the sit ups and the squats. Waiting to see if I can find something else to do besides push ups! And if I find something I will for sure share :-)

Done! Please take care of yourself. I know this will not sound like much, but I hold myself accountable to all of you each day. I feel like if I didn't do these exercises I would be letting someone down including myself. Thanks. Have a great day.

Done. But please share the sub exercise. My wrists are killing me these days.

OH NO Melissa- can you lift light weights? That can tone your arms without all the strain...
I've been miserable and being horrid about the challenge - I've missed so many days. I'll catch up, but it won't be fun.

I just need a minute to catch a break - haven't even been able to stop by your blog, as you know - but right now, I've given up. There's nothing more I can do.

I know I did them. Maybe I answered in the wrong place :)
