Now onto this month's challenge!

Last month we focused on your core, this month we are going to focus on that BOOTY! We are also going to focus on starting your day off right...with breakfast!

February...Another Combination Challenge:

  • 30 Day Booty Building! Try to add this workout circuit into your routine 3 times per week for the entire month of February!
  • Breakfast...The most important meal of the day. For the month of February, we are going to focus on the good habit of having breakfast every single morning, no matter how busy we might be!

Diving Deeper:

30 Day Booty Builder: Our booty is one of the strongest muscles in our body. Whether you are trying to grow your booty or not, having a strong booty can be the foundation of almost all of our lower body strength! This is why it is important to focus on the booty!

How to implement 30 Day Booty Building

  • Complete the 15-minute workout circuit 3 times per week.
  • You can do this circuit on its own or add it to the end of any workout.
  • The goal is to complete 12, 15-minute booty circuits during the month of February.

What is the workout?

4 Rounds:

  • 10 Glute Bridges
  • 10 Hip Thrusts
  • 10 Reverse Lunges, per leg
  • 30 Triple Side Steps, per leg
  • 10 Sumo Squats
  • 10 Donkey Kickbacks, per leg
  • 10 Thrusters

Complete each movement as quickly as possible, working your way through all 7 workouts. At the end of each round, you may take a 2-minute rest, then immediately jump back into the next round!

Breakfast: Why is it the most important meal of the day?

  • Breakfast sets the healthy tone for the day
  • Breakfast wakes up your metabolism and provides your body and brain with fuel, that’s why many call it Break-Fast
  • Starting your day with breakfast replenishes your supply of glucose to boost your energy levels and alertness
  • Studies have shown the eating breakfast can improve your memory and concentration levels
  • Eating breakfast has long term health benefits, reducing obesity, high blood pressure, heart disease, and diabetes

What is considered Breakfast and what is the Objective?

  • Breakfast should be eaten every day!
  • Breakfast should be eaten within 2 hours of waking up.
  • A healthy breakfast should provide you with 20-30% of your daily calorie allowance.
  • Breakfast should provide you with some much-needed nutrients. A meal high in calcium, iron, B vitamins, fiber, and protein is a great way to start your day!
