March Fitness Challenge Update

Well, I'm halfway through my March Fitness Challenge and I'm really feeling the daily workouts! I've gotten into the habit of doing the exercises as soon as I wake up in the morning. I'm not one for exercising first thing in the morning but I know that if I don't get it done, I'll make excuses all evening when I do get home from work. And I must say, I'm getting a bit more than a leg workout! With the bridge, I've really been feeling it in my abs as well. Last week during my kettlebell class, I had a much harder time than usual getting through the ab exercises! So, here's to finishing the last two weeks of this challenge!

March Fitness Challenge

Through my various searching and pinning of fitness workouts, I've come across several monthly fitness challenges. I always think to myself, I really should do one of those, having a daily schedule/plan would help me stick with it. So months have come and gone without me participating in one. Well, that changes today! I searched several of them and decided on Lean Legs for March since shorts will be the first order of business once it starts warming up this spring.  :)  This workout is courtesy of Fun Fit and Fabulous with Lauren.

Week 1 Exercises:
Bridge Exercise
Wall Sit Exercise
Donkey Kick

Week 2 Exercises:
Inner Thigh Bridge
