A good challenge can take a goal that might seem overwhelming or even impossible and break it down into something manageable. By consistently focusing on smaller, daily actions we can turn exercise into a long-term sustainable habit.

For this month, I’ve created a 1,000 Reps Challenge. I’ve carefully curated 10 of my favorite exercises focusing primarily on the butt, legs and core. As the month progresses, we will build from 250 reps (1 set of 25 reps for each exercise) to 1,000 reps (4 sets of 25 reps for each exercise). I will be demonstrating each exercise on my Instagram prior to the start of the challenge so make sure you are following Total Self over there.

If you really want to set yourself up for success with this challenge, I suggest finding an accountability partner or group of people to join you. As the song says, we get by with a little help from our friends.

As with any fitness program, it’s important to take your own goals and limitations in mind. Don’t be afraid to modify and feel free to reach out to me if you need any guidance.

The challenge starts on Monday, March 4th (although you could start at any time) and ends on March 31st. Join us!
