The Lunge Challenge is designed to improve all aspects of the lunge and carry over what you learn into other movements or daily activities. Whether you are gardening, fielding a baseball or squatting for your next significant personal record, lunging will aid in your goals to improve your locomotion for whatever activity you are performing. The lunge is a unilateral, single-leg movement to enhance the knee’s stability, build the glute muscles, and gain new strength in single or double-leg activities. You will perform a set of 30 lunges each day of June (6/5-6/30). You can perform a lunge set for distance, stationary or with assistance. Depending on the performance of your lunge, you and your coach will discuss and prepare a plan to improve your lunging mechanics. Weight can be added depending on the level of the athlete. Remember to listen to your coach and remain consistent with the feedback you are given. You will improve if you stay consistent!
GOALS FOR THE CHALLENGE:
Improve the efficiency of the lunge
Improve the stability of the knee
Improve overall strength and stamina of the lunge
Point out the points of performance of the lunge
Build glutes up
GET WITH A WELLNESS STAFF MEMBER BY MONDAY, JUNE 5
TO RECEIVE A CARD AND START YOUR LUNGES.
After you receive a challenge card (keep up with your card), a staff member will sign each day that you complete your session of lunges. (For your convenience, dates have been assigned for each day on your card).
You will be responsible for keeping up with your daily signatures. If you cannot attend the gym that day, video your lunges and post them to the Choctaw Wellness or Choctaw CrossFit Facebook pages, or show them to a coach to be verified and signed off. A maximum of four videos per athlete will be accepted during the challenge.
If you complete 100% (20/20) of the challenge, you will receive 15 Well Bucks. If you complete (15/20), you will receive eight Well Bucks. So, if you want those Well Bucks, be consistent!
