The five moves can be done daily and the reps increase throughout the challenge as you get stronger. Don't worry if you can't do them all in one set. Start with 5 or 10 reps at a time. Increase your reps as you gain strength. As the weeks progress, you'll get stronger and the exercises will get easier; that's when you should push yourself harder. Don't forget to use your tracker to monitor your growth.
