I took some time off, so I'm back doing these as they are so easy to fit into any schedule and so effective too!

This exercise works so many muscles in the legs and butt!! It seems like it would be such an easy one, but you sure can feel it! Right now I'm doing 3 sets of 30, but think I'm going to add an extra set - I do 4 sets of the wall pushups and the squats, so it only makes sense to do four sets of this one too!

I don't doubt that you are seeing changes already from doing these! Good job! And good job for knowing when you need to give your body a little time to bounce back, too.

Have a great week!!!

this exercise has strengthened my legs like you wouldn't believe. I was laying in bed last night and felt my upper thigh area. I could feel how toned up they've become .... unless it was that they were too tight to move. I don't know. ;)

I do this exercise each and every day. Helps that I go up and down stairs all day as well. Have a 13.5 year old dog that needs to go out all the time so I'm constantly walking up and down those stairs to take her out. And, as I do that, I wind up doing this move as well as standing on one step and lowering one leg and swinging it for about 30 reps. Really feel the stretch in the back of the leg.

I started out "gung ho" on this challenge but wound up having to take it easy. So, for me, I have to begin this challenge this week instead of last week. Hope all the rest of you are doing well with it.

Way to go Roxy! Yes, it is quite amazing how you can work out at home if you just give yourself the time that's needed. No gym membership required although I really do like my physical trainer. He's a young kid and so sweet. He's very good to me. Although the pandemic hit and I haven't seen him now for almost 3 months. Killing me but I can't do what he has me do anyways right now. So we stay in touch and I do the exercises I give you here and then some .... all to strengthen my legs at the moment. And you're right, they really do work. Remember, baby steps. You don't have to go hog-wash wild and sweat it up for hours on end. Just being consistent on a daily basis with the simple, basic moves is all it will take. You just have to be patient to see the results and I guarantee you, you will. Been there, done that. :)

Kudos off to you my dear. You are really pushing yourself. And why not? When we all have all this time on our hands, what better way than to devote it to getting serious with our exercising.

This is a great one! You can really feel it in those calves!!

I have started out with three minutes total - I am doing it in two sets of 1.5 minutes each. By Monday, I want to move that up to five minutes - two sets of 2.5 minutes each.

I must say, I really like the fact that these challenges are ones that can be done at home with no extra equipment needed. I don't have a gym membership, but do have some free weights at home that I have been using for the squats. I started out with 2.5 pound weights on the squats, but have been doing 5 pound weights for several weeks now. I moved from 4 sets of 10 to 4 sets of 15 on those.

It's amazing how we are able to challenge ourselves using our own body weight! It is fantastic! Thanks for keeping me motivated!!!

Ok teamsters, here we go with a brand new challenge. This time I have a video from SP that you can follow. The video doesn't say how many you are to do. Rather they count for it with minutes done. So, please check out the video link below and remember to add this workout to your Fitness Tracker for the day as well as to your Favorite list if you are going to incorporate it into your daily considerations for exercising.

Start out slow, it's not a race! So give your legs time to get used to this move before you tackle some heavy-duty counts within the minutes you do it. And, if you don't have a "step" to use (which I don't), use your stairs in your home or make yourself a stair that will support your weight.

Enjoy it! I'm looking forward to seeing your comments in the postings and I'd also like to suggest you keep yourself accountable by keeping track of it in your Fitness Tracker!

Have fun and I'll be seeing you in the posting area for this challenge! Woo Hoo!
