Summer of Strength – August Challenge

Summer of Strength – August Challenge

Attention All Pro All Stars! We are holding a Summer of Strength competition! Each month we will have a new challenge for our athletes to attempt to help our athletes become stronger cheerleaders and dancers. At the end of the summer if any of our athletes have completed all three challenges (June, July & August) they will have a feature all about them posted on our blog!

 August is V-UP month!

The Challenge

30 V-Ups FOR 31 DAYS

You can break down your burpees into 3 sets of 10 or knock 30 out at a time. Either way, we challenge you to do 30 V-Ups for every single day in August!

How do you do a V-Up? Lie down on your back and extend your arms behind your head. The back of your hands should touch the floor while your palms face the ceiling. Keep your feet together and your toes pointed. To begin the exercise, keep your legs straight and lift them up, and at the same time raise your upper body off of the floor and reach for your toes with your hands. Squeeze your abdominal muscles as you reach for your feet, and then slowly lower yourself back down to the starting position to finish the first repetition… repeat!

Want to really step it up? Add ankles weights!

 How do we know you really did your V-ups?

You can prove it by taking pictures and tagging us on Facebook, Tweeting us @allproallstars, emailing your coach a picture, or by writing it down on a calendar and having your parents sign it. 

 Are you up for the challenge? Ready… Set… Go!

All Pro All Stars Cheerleading is going to be strong this year!
