It happens all the time–you get a little progress going, and then, BAM! Your horse pulls a shoe and abscesses three days out from a show. Or, if you’re a mom, your child gets sick. That’s what’s great about 30 day challenges: you’ve got the workouts on a calendar, so you can go back and play catch up. Or, if you don’t have time to catch up, simply start up again where you left off and extend your time frame.
My daughter just came home from an extended stay in the hospital for a bad case of RSV. Today was my catch up day, and I was so pumped to see all the IG peeps that had posted their #legsofsteelchallenge photos and videos while I was away. YOU GUYS ROCK!!
Putting all the workouts together, I can really feel those muscles that these exercises are designed to target. Be sure you’re adapting these to meet your fitness needs (tone it down or ramp it up as needed).
I really didn’t think the hamstring curls were going to do much for me, but I was pleasantly surprised to feel a little hammy burn after a couple of sets! And those burpees…I need more cardio in my life, for sure.
Exercises like the curtsy and rear lunges really help show you which is your dominant, or stronger, side. I have a weak left knee, and it was pretty evident that I need to work that left quad more.
