30 Day Workout Challenges

I am not sure if I mentioned this last year or not, but in May of last year I did a 30 day squats challenge. It wasn't too hard, but some days I just didn't feel like doing 150 or however many squats. I pushed through and successfully completed the challenge, and I could actually tell a difference! My legs looked slightly more toned and I could tell they were stronger. Since then, I haven't done any more challenges, but I found some interesting ones on Pinterest recently that I wanted to share.

Why I love 30 Day Challenges
  • First off, I love a challenge. So the fact that they are called challenges makes me want to do them and successfully complete them!
  • They are only 30 days long. You can do anything for just 30 days! It is great because the end is in sight. 
  • Usually they start out simple and add a little more every day. It is so gradual that you really don't notice it until by the end you are doing  250 squats each day! 
  • You get rest days. I can't stress how important this is to me because personally, I need a day or two off every once in a while. I push myself to keep going and rest days are kind of a small "reward." Also, I love that if you forget or don't have time one day, I just say that was my rest day and then don't take the next designated "rest day" off. 

Here are a few good ones I found on Pinterest!
