With just over six weeks until the 10th anniversary EVE Online Fanfest in Iceland, I thought this was a wonderful time for one of Roc’s Challenges. It doesn’t have to be Fanfest that is your hard milestone, it could be anything. Want to be ready for the beach? Have a wedding coming up? Whatever your milestone is, Roc’s Sally Up Challenge will definitely help you get there.
“Green Sally Up. Green Sally Down. Green Sally Up. Green Sally Down.” It’s a simplistic chant that will forever change the way you do pushups. The idea of the Sally Up is that you begin in a rested position, hands to your sides, ready to do pushups. As the song starts, so will you.
- Every time you hear the word “up” you will do a pushup, holding at the top plank position
- Every time you hear the word “down” you will descend into a yoga style pushup, holding yourself very close to the ground, but never resting
The song you will need to use is Flower by Moby. It’s 3m25s in duration. It’s 99 cents on Amazon or iTunes, but I’m sure you can find it elsewhere for free.
As mentioned in the YouTube video, I’ll be posting an update to this once per week for the next four weeks. Why only four? I have a serious shredding phase right before Fanfest so need to wrap this up before then.
I encourage you to record yourself as well. It will help you see where your form slips, where you can adjust your breathing, and give you the opportunity to post your boast when you hit your all time high.
