Ready for a Challenge?

30days

I love thirty-day challenges. They’re perfect for anyone who’s busy and/or short on time!! Well, with today being August 1st it’s the perfect time to start a 30 day challenge…or two!

Over the past few weeks I have created a number of different printables in anticipation for the upcoming release of my “30 Day Challenge Fit and Healthy Pack” on September 1st! Although the Fit and Healthy Pack is not completed, I decided to share a few of the printables for ALL SUBSCRIBERS to enjoying for the month of August!!

Included in the 30 Day Challenge Sampler:

sample

  • 30 Day Squat Challenge
  • 30 Day Plank Challenge
  • 30 Day 10,000 Step Challenge

S30CSquat Challenge:

Challenge yourself by adding additional squats daily. You will feel fit and strong…not to mention your favorite jeans will fit better…or better yet, you’ll need a new pair!

P30CPlank Challenge:

Strengthen your core by starting with a 20 second plank and working up to a 4 minute plank! Increase your strength and stamina, and rock a strong toned core at the same time!

S1030C10,000 Step Challenge:

Challenge yourself daily by getting in more steps then you did the day before. Aim for 10,000 each day! {Challenge yourself but, it’s ok if you don’t hit 10,000 every day}

Print out all or just one! Use these printouts over and over by either laminating or putting in a clear page sleeves {hint: use a dry erase/wet erase markers to mark off completed days!}

Day 15 | 31 Days of Pinterest Workouts Challenge

FH

Day 15!! ALMOST half way!!!!!!!

This is one of the best workout routines I have done in a long time!!!

bc09bbc710ab5d215d8ab11827e19859

  • Difficulty level? On a scale of 1- 10 I would give this a 3-4…mainly because kettle bells are heavy and not everyone uses weights.
  • How long it takes {on average}? 20-30 minutes – doing 20 reps of each move. Doing 6 sets {resting for 15-30 sec. between sets}
  • Do I feel the burn? Oh yes you feel it all over!
  • My pros and cons? Con: you need a kettle bell….Ummm I don’t have one so I used one weight {I used 8 lb, 10 lb, and 15 lb.} Use what is comfortable for you DO NOT push yourself if you are not ready! You may only use a 5 lb and that is totally perfect! *Note I will be getting a kettle bell! I can absolutely see where it would have been far easier!
  • “Keeper” or “Don’t waste your time”? Keep it! I think this is going to be a go to for me through out the summer…and the year!
