February Fitness

Alright everyone! It’s the beginning of February, which means it’s time for me to switch up my workout. Just in case you missed it, here is my January Fitness post so you can see what I’ve been working on for the past month.

Last month I was using a free app on my phone called 30 Day Butt Challenge. Although I liked the app, I wanted a workout that would put more focus on toning my thighs. That being said, this is the workout I chose:

30-day-squat-challenge

I chose the 30 Day Squat Challenge because it seemed, well, challenging! I found this workout on Pinterest, but here’s a link to the 30 Day Fitness website as well.

One reason I was looking forward to switching my workout for this month was that the 30 Day Butt Challenge didn’t seem to get much harder as time went on, and I wanted something that would be difficult right from the start. Today was my first day trying this out, and it was definitely harder than what I’m used to! I decided to use a 6lb weight as well just to add that “epic” factor, haha.

In addition to the squat challenge, I am going to continue doing 300 Abs as well. I love this workout because I’ve been seeing results already! I found this routine on Pinterest as well, but once again here‘s the link to the official website.

300-absLast month I mentioned that I liked the workout because it goes pretty fast and that I don’t feel sore in the morning. Those are both still true! It allows me to add other workouts to my regimen without taking too much time or causing injury.

Also, I’m going to start kickboxing! My plan right now is to do the 30 Day Squat Challenge and 300 Abs on days that I don’t go to kickboxing. I want to make sure I don’t overwork or injure myself!

Checking in on my exercise resolution:

Honestly, I feel pretty good after a month of consistent exercise. I can already tell a difference in my body. My abdominal area is more flat and toned, along with my obliques, and my legs are thinning out too. I think one of the best things about consistent exercise is that I’m not as tired! When I go to bed at night I sleep more soundly and do not wake up in the middle of the night as frequently as I did before. I’m hoping to see more improvements as I continue working towards my fitness goals!

So, now it’s your turn. What fitness goals have you guys been working on? If you haven’t been working on anything, now is the time to start!

  1. good to know about you affection towards physical exercise.
    Being a physical exercise enthusiast(to some extent a body builder) i always advice people to have the habit of it at least for 30 minutes a day.
    Presently i am focused in my six packs.

  2. Wow, what a great discipline!! I can’t bring myself up to do traditional sports. But I do dance 3 times per week. I’m going to hit the gym soon, when I finish teaching my dad Zumba haha. Love this post! xoxo Sarah

      1. Oh how interesting! My dad is almost 65 years old. He has always been an active type, always needing to have at least 1 or 2 activities each week. We started dancing latin and ballroom 3 years ago, but he already danced with my mom for over 15 years. He now wanted to learn zumba, because he wants to get better at latin and I told him, it helps him with the composure a lot. I think my dad is now even more motivated because he can do it with me, the fact that he has an activity with his daughter. But aside from that, he used to do ping pong, was master in martial arts, did basketball,… he just loves sports :D. I on the other side don’t even like sports. It was only when I discovered that dancing is the only way for me to have fun in sport. I think in general that people will engage easier in activities when they find themselves to be good at it. It does help with your self confidence… xoxo Sarah

  3. Oh man I feel like just reading this post is kicking my butt into shape lol This is great I’m always trying to keep up with a squatting challenge….I find that it’s the easiest one to do and I can always find time to do some squatting πŸ™‚

    xo, JJ

      1. Hey Makayla, loved your post! You’re right form is everything. If you want to improve your form try doing box-squats (using a chair or a bench). Also it’s good to keep your feet shoulder-width apart and while going downwards in squats stick your butt outwards. Hope this helps! Good luck with your fitness journey!

        xoxo

  4. Wow! Girl you have many fans πŸ™‚
    Good for you for finding something that works well with your goals and schedule πŸ™‚ I am wishing you continued success with it and hope you make all your goals for Feb.

  5. Wow that’s really a goal to do 250 squat . If you do it correctly and in the right form of squatting even without the weight . That’s really going to burn your thigh . Good luck but don’t force it just do it like you are enjoying it . I would like to let you know my master is physical education and represent the Philippines in the world bodybuilding competition and Asian from 1973 to 1982 . Have a good day and enjoy .

  6. Love it! I’ve been working on strength for January and February so far, and will be for the majority of the year. Primary goals are to increase squat, bench and deadlift πŸ‘Œ might put a post up soon about my training actually, thanks for the inspiration 😁

  7. Great post and very usefull tips!
    If you would be so kind and take a look at my blog I’d appreciate that so much! It’s mostly dedicated to makeup, however, I’m a passionate cook as well and I’ve just published a recipe on healthy pancakes which are delicious and very nutritious as well! It’s a win-win! Thank you so much for your time, I enjoyed reading your blog! <3

  8. Hi, I like that you are sharing your fitness goals. In a few days I will be posting my half marathon training schedule which starts next week (yikes!) This will be my third half. We also rock climb and just got back from a yoga retreat which I totally recommend (there are a few posts on my blog under exercise if you are interested in details). Good luck on your goals and thanks for stopping by my blog and checking it out!

    1. I just checked out your one week training update! I have the Nike Running App too, but I’m absolutely terrible about running… I’m impressed that you’re so dedicated!!

      1. You are too kind! I do run a lot but also like to rock climb, if the weather ever warms up I may have to slow down on the running so I can climb more. But believe me, if I can run you can too- I am so slow!
