Fitness for All: Stars and Stripes Workout Challenge

Written by Lisa Jillanza

During the month of May, we remember those who have fought for our country and lost their lives doing so. This Memorial Day, in addition to remembering those who gave the ultimate sacrifice, why not try this “Stars and Stripes” inspired workout challenge?

Based on the 50 stars and 13 stripes featured on the American Flag, this workout challenge will have anyone feeling patriotic (and potentially sore) this Memorial Day weekend.

Starting with the 50 stars, shoot for a least one rep of each of these and if you can feel free to do more than one rep.

Stars:

  • 50 push-ups
  • 50 sit-ups
  • 50 lunges
  • 50 mountain climbers
  • 50 bridges
  • 50 tricep dips
  • 50 scissor kicks

And now onto the stripes. Again, shoot for at least one rep of each of these and do more if you can. 

Stripes

  • 13 pull-ups
  • 13 squat jumps
  • 13 side plank hip dips
  • 13 burpees
  • 13 single leg deadlifts
  • 13 pike push-ups 

If you are still feeling like you want to push yourself even harder, try Googling the “Murph” HERO Workout and give that one a try. Inspired by Lt. Michael Murphy, a Navy SEAL who earned a posthumous Medal of Honor for his courageous acts in Afghanistan. 

Happy Memorial Day Weekend Everyone!
