You don’t need to change your body overnight. Starting out slow and improving a little bit each day is the key to life-long changes. For this workout challenge, we ask you to complete 30 days of abs and butt exercises, starting easy and ending with a bang!
You’ll transform your body and improve your fitness in 30 days, using just 5 moves. The workout challenge starts with a basic workout fit for beginners. You’ll be doing a few reps of each move. This is a good time to focus on proper form, as this helps prevent injuries later on. Each day, you’ll do a few more reps, completing five days of exercise followed by a rest day.
On the 30th day, you’ll do the hardest workout of all!
The five exercises in the workout challenge are some of the most effective for targeting your glutes and abdominals. To start, mountain climbers are great for the abs, and they are a fun cardio move that torches calories quickly. Squat jumps will give you more of a cardio workout while also targeting your glutes, hamstrings, and quads. Russian twists are great for your transverse abdominals, the ones running along your side that work as a natural corset. Leg lifts target your lower abs. Finally, finish up with sumo squats to get your inner thighs burning.
What You’ll Need: (optional) mat or towel to lay on the floor
What to Do: Each day complete the assigned number of repetitions for each move, taking 30 to 60 second breaks in between moves. The days without repetitions are rest days.
Below, we’ve included videos on how to perform each move. Using proper form helps prevent injuries and ensures you’re getting the most out of your workout.
