So you work out, but you’d like to give your derriere and the rest of the powerhouse that is your lower body a little extra attention, huh? Well then, have I got the thing for you! Forget the boring old squat challenge, my 28-Day Lower Body Challenge is free (of course), simple to follow, won’t chew into your time too much and – most importantly – it’ll get you results!
Two years ago I put together the first of my online fitness challenges. It was called the 28-Day Abs Challenge, and to this day it remains one of the most popular things on the LGF website. The only thing is that it’s now a little… clunky. It ran over four weeks, as six separate posts and, well, it’s just not exactly the most user-friendly thing out there. And what does that mean? Well Team, it’s just had a makeover.
It’s Christmas Eve, and I know that exercise is probably the last thing on your mins. BUT you’ve made it this far, and I am positive that you’ve got another seven days in you. It’s only 10 minutes, so think of the Christmas pudding and ham and get in and get it done. My plan is to get up early and sneak in a workout before anyone else is awake, so I can spend the rest of the day relaxing with my family.
Listen, before you say anything, I know; days 13 through 16 were just so darn good you don’t know how you’re going to handle the rest of the month. You will though. You’ll get through it one day at a time my friends, just one day at a time.
Unless you’ve been living under a really boring rock, you’ll know that the very excellent, very simple and very F-U-N #LGF10aDay Challenge kicked off last week. The concept is pretty simple – 10 minutes a day, every day, throughout December. It’s your (completely free) ticket to a healthy silly season. I’ve put together a workout for every day of the month (yep, including Christmas Day). All bodyweight exercises, all simple enough to do in your own home or backyard.
It’s happening Team – the Lazy Girl Fitness 10 a Day Challenge starts tomorrow! In case you missed my last post, the 10 a Day Challenge is all about committing to a 10-minute workout every day for the month of December – a time when Christmas parties and good times occasionally (ok, often) get in the way of good physical and mental health.
The Christmas period is one of my absolute favourite times of the year. I know plenty of people take issue with the decorations on display and the carols being piped through stores pre-December but if you ask me, November onwards is fair game for anything festive!
I told you that it was no ordinary push up challenge and look at that – YOU MADE IT! The LGF 28-Day Upper Body Challenge is officially complete.
Apologies for the delay in this post but if, like me, you’re finding it difficult to lift your arms to the keyboard and you feel like you’d rather stab yourself in the eye than do another push up then congratulations, the Challenge was a success!
The end is nigh! Just five more ‘work’ days and you will be able to say that you completed the LGF 28-Day Upper Body Challenge. Or as I like to call it, Hell.
Congratulations! You’re officially halfway through the challenge! By now you should be powering through those first few reps with perfect form, feeling stronger, happier and pretty damn proud of yourself!
