4 Fitness Challenges for a Toned Body

I know how difficult it is to motivate yourself to start exercising regularly and maintain a workout routine. It’s specially hard when you have a bunch of other responsibilities, so it sometimes seems impossible to squeeze it into our busy schedules. Not to mention the costs of gym memberships and workout equipment.

These fitness challenges are surefire ways to kick off your own personal wellness journey as they are simple, require no equipment, and will only take a couple of minutes of your day.

Cassey Ho, aka Blogilates, is one of the most popular fitness instructors on YouTube with millions of views. She posts quick and easy Pilates workouts and has been uploading videos since 2009.

If you decide to do Cassey’s 100 Abs Challenge, you will be doing 100 reps of one ab exercise every day for 30 days. That’s a total of 3,000 reps in one month.

I’ve done this challenge myself and I started seeing a difference in my waistline around the 2-week mark. However, you have to remember that abs are made in the gym but shown in the kitchen, which means you also have to eat clean while doing this.

Chloe Ting 100 Glute Bridge a Day Challenge

🌟Cardio & core to start your week! Perform each exercise/side for 30 seconds for 4 rounds & you’ve got roughly a 20 minute workout depending on your breaks! ▫️ ▫️ Finishing up Luke’s science fair project this weekend left me with no time for any workouts. I know I’m behind on my glute bridges & also posting, so sorry, I’ll be caught up by tomorrow! ▫️ ▫️ This vid starts with day 13 of the #100glutebridgechallenge an elevated single leg bridge on the med ball. I did 50 on each leg & then put the rest of the workout together but don’t worry, when you do the entire workout, you only have to do each exercise for 30 seconds! Swipe ⬅️ to see each one in real time. I love this move because it challenges you in different ways from a regular bridge! In order not to push the med ball away with your planted leg, you really have to squeeze your hammies (the backside of your upper leg). Some things to think about: ▫️ Keep your core tight & pelvis tucked just like with any of the bridges ▫️ Point your extended leg to the ceiling & keep it from moving around too much ▫️ Your arms are there to help support you but try not to rely on them, you want to use your core to stabilize your body ▫️ Your feedback is very much appreciated so please let me know if you try it! 💕Nicole ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️ #workoutvideo #gluteworkout #cardioworkout #coreworkout #strongcore #strongtothecore #glutes #girlpower #yougogirl #fitgirl #fitmom #strongmom #strongmind #strongbody #strongereveryday #strengthtraining #workoutmotivation #workhard #havefun #nevergiveup #hardworkpaysoff #healthylife #fitlife #fitforlife #functionalfitness #healthandfitness #sweatsmilerepeat
