May Challenge: Week 1

Agh!  I can’t believe that it’s already May 4th!  I really meant to write this post sooner, but it appears that I’ve been a little distracted trying to get things done around the house.

Anyway……for the month of May, I decided I was going to create a leg, thigh, and glute challenge.  I’m trying to keep my muscles in the best shape I can, so that it’ll be easier to bounce back after pregnancy.  I’ve had a rocky couple of weeks, but I’m ready to get back to it!

I plan to put up this months challenge one week at a time, starting on Sunday’s, so you’ll have to check back weekly.  Feel free to leave comments too, and let me know how you’re doing.  I apologize that this post is coming a day late, but you can either skip yesterday’s challenge, or play catch up by doing two sets today!

So, here’s the challenge for the week/month of May!

Sunday, May 3rd:

  • 30 squats
  • 5 push-ups
  • 5 lateral lunges, each leg
  • 5 hydrants, each leg
  • 5 straight leg glute kickback, each leg

Thursday, May 7th

  • 90 squats

I know it may seem like a lot of squats, and if you need to, you can always break them up.  Remember though, proper form is so important when it comes to your squats.  Keep those knees behind your toes, and back straight.

I will be posting next weeks challenge on Saturday, so make sure that you check back for the new week!  You’ve got this!
