March Madness // Four 30-Day Challenges

Don't get me wrong, I love me some good college basketball (#GoBlue), but the March Madness I'm referencing is a little different than the standard basketball bracket tournament you're used to hearing about during the third month of the year.

This March Madness will be all about getting back on the muscle building wagon and getting our STRONG on! And who doesn't love a great 30-day challenge to ignite the spark?! In fact, since 30-day challenges are (in my opinion) a great way to kick-start a new habit, why not combine a couple of them?! If one is good, then four is better, right?!

For the month of March, I'm going to take on FOUR 30-day challenges and I challenge you to join me! There is a squat challenge, a plank challenge, a push-up challenge and a crunch challenge. I figured March was the perfect time to start because many of us have let our "resolutions" slip from the forefront of our mind and we need a kick in the booty before our spring races come around/ the weather gets nicer/ more time slips from our grasp / whatever your reason may be.

My plan is to split up the different exercises throughout the day (maybe one before breakfast, one before lunch, one before dinner and one before bed) so I'm not trying to fit them all in at the end of the day, but we will have to see how I do.

Feel free to join in on any or all of the challenges (if four is too much, pick one or two - YOU DO YOU!)! Accountability is great, so the more people we have doing it and routing each other on, the more likely we will be to stick with it. By the end we will be doing 250 squats // 5 minute plank // 5 push-ups // 150 crunches - WE WILL BE ROCKSTARS! Well, shoot, we already ARE rockstars, but by the end of the month hopefully we will be even stronger, fitter rockstars!

Which of the four challenges do you think will be the hardest to do?

Okay...I'm in! I did Planksgiving because of you and I was so proud of myself. And then I stopped...time to pick it back up!

I think I'll stick with one since I'm just getting back into it, but I'll go with squats since I was doing them in PT!
