Alright! Here we go Monday!
I’m pumped for week six of the Lushious Bikini Body Challenge! I’m pumped to start a new week – full of LOTS of healthy food which I did at meal prep yesterday, and I’m pumped because I got a new job offer last week and I accepted! In the next few days I’ll find out exactly when I begin my new job – I’m so excited! It’s going to be a complete change from what I’m currently doing. My work hours are changing – which means my workout schedule will be changing as well. I’m not really sure what’s going to happen quite yet, but I should know my start date soon.
This week we’re starting off with a kick butt lower body interval workout using dumbbells and bodyweight exercises. The plan is to tire the legs, pump the blood and bring out some lactic acid. 🙂 These are the kind of workouts most people hate – but I love a good leg day!
If you’re interested in the Lushious Bikini Body Challenge,
but didn’t begin on day 1, you can still jump on board!
The challenge is about creating a healthy lifestyle through exercise,
which will energize you, create happiness and improve strength and self-love!
+ check in each day for the NEW daily workout
+ drink lots of water throughout the day, and especially around your workout time
+ always train with proper form, focusing on your breathing and tempo
+ focus on eating lean protein with lots of vegetables for every meal
+ share your progress through #LushiousBikiniBodyChallenge

THE EXERCISES IN ACTION

Alternate sides after each rep. 1 rep = 1 front lunge + 1 side lunge.
BOTTOM ALTERNATING PISTOL SQUAT
lushious TIP: If the bottom alternating pistol squats aren’t feeling your Monday you can use a chair to help make the exercise easier by standing in front of the chair, begin to squat on one leg – coming to a complete sit – switching out the legs and stand up!
After today’s workout, I’m going to cool down with the following Yoga By Candace video that I did about a week or so ago. I really loved the feeling it gave me when I was done. So why not give it another try? 😉
Tomorrow we’re working upper body, so the legs can have a big rest! 🙂
Have a great Monday – see you tomorrow – bright & early!
