August is here! After taking on the butt and the abs, it’s time to focus on another beautiful part of your body: your thighs! So put on those shorts and join us for this months challenge!
WHY YOU SHOULD JOIN US
There are so many reasons you should join us. When you repeat something for 30 days you subconsciously teach yourself to add a certain routine to your lifestyle. So it makes it easier to work out! Ain’t that awesome! Also:
- It helps you get fit (obviously)
- You train yourself to be disciplinary
- It’s great for your self esteem
- We love it that you work out with us, no matter where you are on this beautiful planet!
AND HERE’S HOW…
We have made a schedule where you can see what kind of exercises and how many you’re supposed to do throughout the month. And as usual Aranka is going to show you how it’s properly done. Looking good, girl 😉
1. Inner Thigh Lift
Lie on your side // Lean on your lower arm // Straighten one leg // Bend your other leg at the knee and cross over in front of your other leg // Use your inner thigh muscle to lift your left leg off floor. Keep toes in flexed position (not a pointed position) //Exhale as you lift your leg // Slowly lower your leg // Inhale as you lower your leg // Repeat entire sequence on your other side.
2. Sitting Leg Raise
Sit straight up with both legs out // Place your hands behind you to stay steady // Lift your leg till till a 40-degree angle // Keep your foot flexed // Lower your leg slowly // Repeat entire sequence with your other leg.
Place your feet approximately at shoulder width and step forward with one foot // Inhale as you flex your right hip and knee while keeping your knee pointed in the same direction as your foot // Keep your torso upright as you continue to bend your right knee until it forms a right angle and your left knee is almost touching the floor. Ensure that your right knee does not extend beyond your toes // Come back up till both legs are straight and repeat // Repeat entire sequence with your other leg.
THE 30 DAY THIGH CHALLENGE SCHEDULE
Remember, this is YOUR challenge so try doing what you can do. Do not overdo it. You can challenge yourself, but try to do it wisely. It’s always better to get to your goal, even if it takes you longer than a month. The most important thing is that you get to your goal!
