AUGUST ABS

This months challenge is based on the previous challenges that we have completed. We have done squats, pushups, and core workouts. So in the August Abs challenge we are bringing it to the next level (it might be a challenge for someone just starting out but you can always adjust it according to your level). August 1 starts with 50 crunches if you can’t do 50 crunches in a row, do as many as possible, rest and begin again until you do 50. Do the same with the bicycle crunches on August 2 and the preceding days. More rest will be required in this challenge as well. Your body is doing more work and it is important to give it rest so that your muscles can recover and rebuild, Sculpting a longer and leaner body.

Burn Baby Burn

**Calories based on a 150 pound women.

Another way to track how many calories you’ve burned or how high your heart rate has gotten during a workout, or how long you’ve worked out is by using a heart rate monitor watch. There are many varieties out there. Some way more expensive than others. With the cheaper ones you might not be able to trust the accuracy. Here are a couple options that I recommend.

Pushup Challenge

Push-ups are hands down one of my favorite moves to incorporate into my workouts. Push-Ups don’t just work your chest and perk up yours boobs, they tone the whole body. A pushup primarily works the chest but it also tones and strengthens your triceps, shoulders, lower legs, and abs.
There is a beginner or a more advanced option to choose from in this challenge. In the beginner challenge, you will start at 3 pushups and work your way to 20 consecutive. The second option you will start at 8 Push-Ups and move up to 40. To improve your strength even further try do multiple sets two days a week. For example on Mondays and Fridays, do 2-3 sets of pushups. Remember, keep your body tight and move through the movements slowly.

Fitness Challenge – June Shape Up – Arms + Core

Challenges are excellent at building strength, muscle and endurance. You will be surprised at how good you get at specific exercises and will be so proud of yourself – which in turn will build momentum for you to be better.
“If you continuously compete with others you will become BITTER. If you continuously compete with yourself you will become BETTER.”
This months fitness challenge is a mix of exercises, rather than focusing on one specific Muscle group. Last month we did the plank challenge - and I kept planks in this month because a few people loved them. I started out slightly simple for beginners – but if you’d like to up the time on some of these – go for it! Remember: It doesn’t matter if you start at the beginning of the month or not, just start! This calendar is used as a guide [...]

Fitness Challenge of the Month – Plank Challenge!

Last month we did a squat challenge – I know it was super tough! I was right there with you. I had a hard time and even had to take more rest days than it asked for – but that’s okay! You can still be a part of the challenge, even if you need to rest more than the calendar allows. I would not want you to hurt yourself doing our challenge. I want you to succeed!

Now, if this seems tough, don’t worry. You will become stronger and you will be able to do at least a minute plank by the end of the month if you stick with it and push yourself. You will be surprised at how strong you will get and it will amaze you. You can do this!

April Squat Challenge! Let’s do this!

squat challenge

I was having a little chat with my sister today and she mentioned she’s doing a squat challenge this month. So, what did I do? I said, “I’m in!”

Everyday all you have to do is look at the calendar and do the required amount of squats. You can break them up throughout the day if needed. I know I’m going to need to! Especially when we get in the 100′s-200′s! WOW! That’s a lot of squatting! But, its going to be worth it in the end!

If you don’t know how to do a correct squat, watch this video on YouTube on how to do a proper squat.
Benefits of squats:
1. Builds muscle! They tone the legs and lift the butt! Now, who wouldn’t want that?!!

2. Burns fat! The more muscle you gain, the more you body burns fat. It’s a fact!

3. Strength and [...]
