Strength Training: 30 Day Challenges


May 1 - The past couple of months I have been adding strength training to my exercise routine. I have been using some of my own and daily workout challenges that I found on Pinterest.

The first one I found was FAB AB FEBRUARY:







Then in March I found MAD ABS MARCH:




Last month it was AWESOME ABS APRIL:




And AWESOME ARMS APRIL:

This month it will be MAD MUSCLE MAY:




I'm still on the hunt for a daily workout calendar for abs, so let me know if you have seen one!

**Update!! Found it...MUSCLE MANIA MAY:




I love these daily workouts because they are quick and get progressively more challenging each day. The simplicity of three focus exercises makes them doable for someone like me who doesn't particularly like strength training. I do them because of the benefits: strength training helps you burn more calories, run more efficiently, and prevent injuries.



What is your favorite strength training exercise?


Are you starting anything new this month?
