30 day thigh slimming challenge

30 Day Thigh Slimming Challenge!

 

Hey guys!

I hope you are loving all the new avocado recipes! They are so delish. I can’t stop eating the Avocado Toast for breakfast. It is just so good and super filling.

Anyway! Can you believe it is March!?? Like what!? I honestly don’t even understand right now. Why does time fly by so fast?

Well, with a new month, comes a new monthly challenge! After asking y’all on twitter what you wanted to focus on, it was CLEAR that thighs were going to be our next target. So without further adieu, here it is:

Please save and share with your friends, family, and co-workers. It’s a really fun thing you guys can do during a break together that’ll get you moving an out of your chair if you’re at the office! Don’t worry about the judgement. Anyone who doesn’t feel comfortable doing this with you is because they’re insecure about stepping outside of their comfort zone. BE that inspiration they need in their lives.

Here are your moves in cute gif form :)

plie-squat

1. Plie Squats: Make sure that your toes are faced diagonally outwards and that when you squat down, you are engaging your thighs. Imagine that your knees need to open wide as you sit down. But keep your chest open and up. DO NOT hunch over forward! Stay tall.

leg-swings

2. Leg Swings: This move targets your outer thighs and your obliques! It’s a double whammy. If you need a chair to hold on to, go ahead and grab one. This move also tests your balanace. Be sure to FLEX your foot and keep your leg straight as you swing.

side-lunge

3. Side Lunges: This is so perfect for inner thighs. When I am at the gym I hold a 30 lb barbell on my upper back to intensify the movement! But since you’re most likely doing these moves at home and the reps will get high, you’ll be just fine. Just make sure to lunge low! And keep your straight leg straight as you get up to starting position.

side leg lift

4. Side Leg Lifts: Lay on your side, make sure your body is in a straight line, and simply lift your top leg up and down. Please point your toes!

inner thigh lift
5. Inner Thigh Pulses: This move is so effective and one of my favorites in POP Pilates to perform when I want to target my inner thighs! This trick here is to keep your moving foot in “awkward foot” position. Your heel must be up and your toes must face down. Trust me, it’s weird. But that’s how it works. Then simply lift up and down. For the other bent leg, if you can’t hold it like in the gif above, simply lay your knee down on the ground in front of you.

Alrighty my friends! Please comment below and tell me if you’re in! Then I want you to forward this link to one person. Just one! Again, be a leader and a motivator in someone’s life and spread our Blogilates positivity with your world :D

Oh and follow the #MarchofthePOPsters Calendar!

    I am half way through this and I’m not seeing any results. I’ve been maintaining a healthy diet and I have been doing additional exercise on top of this and I still see no difference?!

    I thought you can’t spot reduce by exercising the same set of muscles which these seem to do? Has anyone tried this and gotten positive results?

  • Phoebe Chong

    Talked to cassey about this!
    Follow what the calendar says. Day 1, do 5 plie squats, Day 2, 6 plie squats, and etc. There are no reps as the days go on. You just simply increase each number as the days go on. Good luck! Hope this helped clear some confusion:)

    When I first saw this, I thought “WTF? Why is there 12 days of keeping exercises one to three at the same count, and 6 days of keeping exercise four at the same count?” Having just completed line three of this, I understand EXACTLY why you’ve set it up the way you did. I’ll admit after doing all five for a count of ten, I thought “I’m supposed to do these 22 times?” My next thought was “No, you’re supposed to increase everything by a count of 1 over the next 11 days and finish at 22.” That seemed less overwhelming. I’m really noticing a difference after 18 days. (Technically it’s 16 days, however the two days I missed were days 14 and 15, I’m no stranger to inner thigh pulses so I just picked up at Day 16.) My inner thighs no long remind me of cottage cheese and it’s much easier to keep pace with my husband during our 30-40 minute power walks.

    Will I loose fat or gain thigh muscles????

    • AlbertaRose94

      I think it depends on what else you are doing, and how you are eating. I’m wanting to gain muscle while losing fat, so I’m also doing the Abdominal Challenge, power walking with my husband (who is 10 inches taller than me) and doing weight training two-three times a week.

    My first day was Yesterday

  • jana

    does these workouts makes thighs gain muscles

  • AlbertaRose94

    Hi! Just wanted to say I am now on Day 7 and have noticed a difference. I’m combining the Thighs with your Abdominal one, plus every other day I incorporate the Thigh and Abdominal with weight training. I’m also eating healthier since it makes sense. What really makes it unique is I usually get bored of an exercise regime after five days but I’m still at it.

  • emily lindmann

    If I do the arm, waist, thigh, stomach and butt 30 day challenges as well as walking my dogs and burning around 100 calories every day, will I see and feel results? I heard you’re supposed to do these 30 day challenges with the calendar but I’m not, will I still see results even though I’m not doing the calendar?

  • Brandi Barbee

  • Sandra

    Do you just do 1 set of each exercise with the stated reps or 3 sets of the reps? For instance on day 1 do I just do 1 set, 5 reps of each exercise or 3 sets of 5 reps for each exercise? TIA

  • Sugandha Tyagi
