14-Day Butt and Core Spring Break Challenge


Mid-terms are over, the air is getting warmer, and everyone is ready to let loose a little. That’s right, it’s Spring Break time! One week to forget your worries and dance in the sun with all your friends. Well, maybe you have one worry … Perhaps that little extra “fun layer” built up from the holidays that you just haven’t found the motivation to deal with yet? It’s all good, that’s where I come in! Below I designed a 14-day Butt and Core Spring Break Challenge to tighten and tone you up before your 7-day strut in your bikinis or trunks.

How It Works:

Each of the 14 days you will complete three rounds of all four moves. You do each move for as long as the time given on the chart below shows without stopping. It starts at 25 seconds per move, and you work your way up to 90. Stick with it, and you’ll be dying to show off the results. Good luck!


How To Do The Moves:

1. Plank Lift
