Dip into October

September has come to an end (insert Green Day joke here) and so has our jump rope challenge. How did you fare? Did you ever get around to buying a jump rope? Did you successfully jump rope for five minutes a day? Let us know!

This stock photo dude crushed the challenge.

For those of you not looking to invest in any more props, we’re happy to inform you that October’s challenge doesn’t require any purchases – just you and an elevated surface of choice!

50 Tricep Dips A Day

This month we’re doing 50 tricep dips a day – Monday through Friday – for four weeks. That’s 1000 dips in the month of October! Dips are simple. You use your triceps to lower yourself and raise yourself back up. See the graphic below:

Every Rise workout has a surface for you to use. Washington Square Park, Grand Army Plaza, and MacDonald Park have plenty of benches. Bryant Park has a whole bunch of steps leading up to the library. And the Williamsburg Bridge has a bench at the base (it’ll be a bit cozy if we all dip at once but we’ll make it work!)

Want to guarantee this challenge gets done? #JustShowUp.

Tomorrow we’ll be in Washington Square Park for a killer HIIT workout! Be there at 6:28 AM for two minutes of pre-workout high fives!
