2. 30-day Squat Challenge
Want to tone up your legs at home or in the gym? Squats are always a good choice of exercise to build muscle and is a great calorie burner! It makes for a really fun fitness challenge if you go up against a housemate or family member!
Find 10 minutes in your day to do as many squats as you can and work on building those reps as the days go on. We started with four sets of 10 squats taking breaks in-between – adding more reps on when we could! Make sure to build in 1-2 rest days per week to let your leg muscles recover.
Try doing a few squats at other random points in the day – how about while you make your morning coffee or while brushing your teeth!
3. Yoga Challenge
Yoga is a great way to calm the mind and build muscle in the body. It requires patience and stamina but can be really fun when trying new moves out.
We’ve had a good look through yoga challenges and found a great 30-day routine for you to try! Adriene’s 30 Days of Yoga Challenge is tough but very rewarding – all you need is a yoga mat, water & 30 minutes or your time each day.
