Let’s ‘Scope! (with Periscope)

 Look what’s new on the block!

Periscope is a new form of social media that I’ve started using. You can learn more about it here: www.Periscope.tv. It’s a way to do LIVE streaming videperiscope 5.54.00 PMo so that I can connect with you in REAL time and you can join in to comment, ask questions and show love in the form of ♡♡♡’s. (You tap your device’s screen to do this).

You can join Periscope and never have to do a live broadcast yourself, but you can enjoy video broadcasts of those people that you follow. It’s a great way to connect and get to know the ‘real’ person. The videos are raw and unedited and you never know what will happen on them so that’s the fun part. Search for me  and follow @ChallengeWorkouts

You’ll be notified anytime I do a broadcast. If you miss the broadcast, the replay is available for 24 hours.

I can see how to use Periscope for lots of things like coaching. Say for example, you have sore knees and you can’t figure out why, if you and I did a Periscope together, I could watch you squat LIVE and give immediate feedback. Even if you’re on the other side of the world…cool stuff.

As an aside, I’ll be opening my VIP coaching up pretty soon and will have limited spots available. If you’re like to be the first to be notified, CLICK HERE.

periscope in app store <=====Now if you want to get in on the Periscope action. Just go to the App Store and look for it to download to your smart phone or tablet. (And be sure to follow me!)





I downloaded the video from yesterday’s scope and loaded it up for you to You Tube so that you’d see what it looks like, but you’ll miss all the Periscope comments/heart action when you view it on You Tube. You’ll see that it’s pretty ‘raw’ – no edits, no filters, just me giving you fitness tips – this time on how to sexify your upper body and core with ONE move.

Here’s the video in Periscope (it will only be available until 11 am MST Saturday, July 25/15): Click HERE.

I also decided that I’d do a ‘follow along’ video for you on Periscope as an experiment. It was my day off, but I wanted to try this out and once I got started, well, you know the rest….lots of you tuned in – for the rest of you – you’ll see a follow along video in the Periscope replay here. (This one will be available until 2:30 pm MST Sat. Jauly 25/15).

This time I used Screenflow to record the video on Periscope so that you’ll see exactly how it will look on the Periscope replay.

This was a bit of a disaster as you can see, but it was great fun and it’s a good workout for you to do in only 10 minutes. You can choose to follow along with me in the video, or just use the idea to do your own workout at home:

100 Burpees in 10 Minutes

Set your timer for 1 minute repeats. burpee funny

Do 10 burpees in the first minute and rest in any remaining time you have until the minute is up. Repeat for 10 rounds.

Modify – Your first minute is the ‘test’ minute. Do burpees (or whatever modification you’d like to use like a burpee walk-out or full body extension). Count your reps until you get to 45 seconds. Rest for 15 seconds. Then repeat this number for the remaining 9 sets.

Intensify – This is the same as the way to modify – count how many reps you get in the first minute (up to 45 seconds so you’ll have a bit of rest in round 1). Then repeat that 9 more times. You could also do one of the cool burpee variations that I did in the video (floppy/hand release burpee, burpee get up, double jump burpee, handstand burpee)

So now you need to do three things:

  1. Download Periscope to your device.
  2. Follow me, Challenge Workouts and stay tuned for other Periscope broadcasts (and give me lots of ♡♡♡’s!)
  3. Do this burpee follow along workout =)
  4. Use cool things like Periscope with me to get in the BEST shape possible! Get on the early notification for my VIP Coaching group HERE.
