Hey guys!

It’s time for us to take on a challenge. You ready?

I want you to commit with me for 7 days.

Anywhere between 20-30 minutes a day. That’s it.

It’s the time you probably take to browse what show to watch next on Netflix. Or the time you take to mindlessly scroll TikTok for no reason. Or the time you take stare in the fridge deciding what to eat next :P

Do you want to accomplish something cool while getting stronger and feeling really good about yourself in just 7 days? Then this is what I want you to do:

I want you to commit to the #7DayAbChallenge.

Save 7 Day Ab Challenge

#7DayAbChallenge:

Purpose: To build and reveal your abs in 7 days!

Begins: Monday May 4, 2020

Ends: Sunday May 10, 2020

Length: 7 days

Daily commitment: 20-30 min

The Guidelines:

  1. Day 0: Save the challenge graphic and upload it to Instagram or TikTok and let everyone know you’re doing this! Make sure to hashtag #7DayAbChallenge and tag @blogilates.
  2. Day 0: Take a before picture or video of your abs.
  3. Day 1-7: Complete the workouts listed for the day. You can even film yourself doing these and have a cool progress video that you can upload to Instagram, TikTok, or YouTube at the end of the week!
  4. Day 1-7: Make sure to drink at least 64 oz of water a day for all 7 days.
  5. Day 1-7: Make sure to reduce your intake of refined/processed carbs (bread, crackers, cereal, pastries etc.) and replace with whole vegetables and fruits for 7 days.
  6. End of Day 7: Take an after picture or video of your abs and upload the results to Instagram, TikTok, or YouTube! Make sure to include the #7DayAbChallenge hashtag and tag @blogilates so other users can find the challenge!

Your 7 Day Workout Plan:

The workout videos:

This is the video that you will do every day for 7 days. The Waist Whittler Cardio Pilates is designed to melt the fat off of your abs.

You will then add on this video for days 4-7. The Beautiful Ab Sculpt is designed to bring out the definition in your abs.

Results!

Here are some results that just came in! I am SO PROUD of everyone who stuck to the guidelines and got so much stronger and fitter in just 7 days. It’s really cool to see the hard work pay off huh?

What if you want…MOOOORREEEEE???

If you want to be active for 45 min a day, but STILL wanna complete the #7DayAbChallenge, no worries. Here’s your May Workout Calendar :) I’ll also be linking the new videos to Coda so feel free to follow the calendar there if you prefer!

Save ImageClickable PDF

If you’re doing the #7dayabchallenge exclusively, then no, there are no rest days. But if you’re doing the May workout calendar, feel free to designate one rest day a week. You can pick any day you would like!

Good luck!

    Where can I find workouts other than the waist pilates and beautiful and workout. And as I am following the 7day ab challenge since yesterday so please help. Thanks Cassey. You’re a superstar really♥️

  • Ha says:

    Hey Caasey, I started May challenge late but I am totally in, I wanted to ask you what should I do during my first painful days of period during the workouts month?
    Thank you🌹

    • Gabriela says:

      I am no Cassey, but I am a OBGYN, and I usually recommend my patients to work out during menstruation time, the endorphins from the work out will help you alleviate pain. If your pain is so bad you can’t conduct your normal activities, including sport, take the day off, put somethin worm around your back and abs.

  • nourah says:

    can u make some food schedule or at least some h-food recipes💞

  • May says:

    Dear Cassey, I am currently doing the 7DayAbChallenge. But I need some advice here; after I finish the challenge, can I keep doing this challenge for many more weeks until I get to the goals ” where I have flat stomach and abs”?

    Thank you so much.

    Much Love,
    May

  • J.M. says:

    Love following the calendars! But I found myself following April’s calendar for May again because its really hard to do workouts in the same area for a week straight. I end up getting too sore and not working out at all, rather than switching it up every day. Keep it up though Cassey, love love love your site and it has brought so many good changes for me! But I do love having different workouts daily

  • Keesha says:

    Trying this challenge and it is my day 2.. got a bit frustrated because i always fail to finish the 3 set.. huhuhu but i am trying.. thank you for this casey!

  • belle roberts says:

    i cant wait to try this!!!

  • Taylor says:

    I am suuuper late to this (I know last day was May 10) but you know what? I’m gonna start tonight anyway. I guess you’re never too late. I wanna start on the full calendar too! I know I’m late. But I wanna get in shape! So no more excuses!!!

  • Bevlyne says:

    Am in

  • Sarah Mendoza says:

    Hey Cassey! I was told by a number of people that working out every day isn’t good because we need to give our muscles time to recuperate. Is this true? If so, how come there aren’t any “rest days” in the workout calendars you provide? Really curious. Thank you

    • blogilates says:

      If you’re following the full monthly calendar, you can choose one day off a week!

  • Orna says:

    hey can anyone help me out? how much calories does the 7 day abs challenge burn per day?

  • Lesley says:

    Hey Cassey! So I have a question while doing these workouts what foods should we stay away from?

  • Kelly M says:

    Hey Cassey! Question, everytime I do mat exercises like roll ups and russian twists I get blisters on my butt and it hurts to continue to do the workouts. I tried to google it and I can’t find much info…what do you recommend to like..avoid it from happening? I

  • saiyuri morris says:

    hey Cassey! I am excited to start the workout but I have one question. I love your templates and I was wondering what do you use to make them. I want to try making my own with the workout I already have so please share!!

  • Özlem says:

    Don’t we rest the muscles a little bit? If we don’t, can it be harsh for our body or not? And also what if i have extra weights (for me, i am 50 kg now but seem like 60 kg)? Can we lose weight with this challenge or firstly we should lose weight?

    • caitlyn says:

      there is a 15 second break between each exercise

  • Lianna says:

    I’m sooo excited

  • Katrina McKeon says:

    Day5 complete!!! Awesome workout!!!

  • RobynWeir says:

    I loved the ab challenge so much that I am going to continue with it for the entire month. I want to see results!

  • Rachel says:

    Cassey,
    I’m so grateful for this challenge! The Quarantine Fifteen has been SO REAL for me. Over the past month, I slowly began exercising less and eating more. It crept up on me, and before I knew it I was feeling sluggish, bloated, and unmotivated. I finally decided enough was enough and went looking for a way to get back in shape. I’ve followed you on Instagram for years, and I noticed that you were starting the #7DayAbChallenge the very next day! It was exactly what I needed. The combination of cardio and ab-targeted exercises was the perfect way to jump back into a regular workout routine. The length of the challenge was also so perfect for me. For someone who wasn’t working out on a regular basis, 7 days of consistent exercises felt both challenging and achievable. Any longer, and I might have felt overwhelmed and defeated. Any shorter and I wouldn’t have seen the same incredible results. I feel fitter and stronger than I have in a long time. I’m more motivated than ever to clean up my eating habits and to stay consistent with my workouts. I’m genuinely excited to jump into the #7DayGluteChallenge today! So I just wanted to say “thank you”! I’m so grateful for you! Thank you for putting in the time, effort, energy, and work to create such great workouts and challenges. Thank you for putting yourself out there. Thank you for your honesty and positivity. Your hard work, kindness, and dedication to excellence does not go unnoticed. I’ve been a fan for a long time, and I just want you to know that you are very much appreciated!

    P.S. Thanks for the free Chipotle earlier this week! ;)

  • Rachael says:

    Hi Cassey,
    I just wanted to point out that some of the examples of results cold just be the pictures the people took. Time of day, water intake, and time during the month/week all impact how much our tummy shows, and I feel like only 7 days is too short to really contribute all the difference to just exercise. Also, the lighting, angle of camera, clothing, and position of body all affect how the tummy looks. I am not saying those pictures have no meaning, I just am not sure what to think of them. I am wondering what you think in terms of before and after pictures? How long would it really take to contribute shape results to exercise?

  • Jess says:

    Done Day 7!! (The workout part anyway) Can’t wait for glute week to start!!

  • Adira says:

    I had very little energy today, BUT I completed Day 6!!! Achievement Unlocked!!!!

  • Katrina McKeon says:

    Day4 completed !!!😁 Awesome workout!!!

  • tiffany says:

    I love this challenge. The cardio with the pilates has me sweating up a storm! Please, please more of these!!

  • Liora says:

    Hey! Absolutely love the challenges!! Feeling super motivated for this new month :) However, I’m just wondering if by only focusing on certain areas of the body for an entire week, will I lose the muscle I’ve built on other parts of my body during the previous weeks? For example, by week three, is it possible to lose the abs I worked on during the first week of the month (because we won’t be working on abs anymore)? Just a curious mind asking for clarity hahaha

    • Kiara says:

      Oh yeah I was wondering this too, @blogilates please reply!

    • Desiree says:

      OMG! I was thinking the same!

    • Charitini says:

      Personally, as I followed the ab challenge with a lot of excitement along with the monthly calendar, after the 4th day of the challenge I began to experience back ache (mostly lower but also upper) during some exercises as well as after the workout. I do not know if this was because my back muscles attrofied, or because I did not exercise symmetrically around the waist – which is healthier according to most physicians.
      I finished the ab challenge (as my rest day was the last one of the week), but I am very skeptical about the next challenge and weather it will have a negative impact on any part of my body, as I exercise to be healthy and not to show off muscles… I hoped Cassey was giving options to counter-balance the ab exercises in the other workouts of the calendar…

  • Katrina McKeon says:

    Day3 completed!!! Awesome workout!!!!

  • Maud says:

    Great workout videos! I was wondering if you or other people following this blog would have a recommendation of wireless headphones or earbuds that I can do pilates with? I do the trainings in front of your videos and live in a small apartment so everyone can hear the sound of the training videos. I would like to get myself wireless headphones or earbuds that don’t fall off my ears, with no sound latency that I can use to do pilates while keeping the sound only for my hears in the house :)

    • KC says:

      LOVE my Bose soundsports. Sound quality it great, but not totally noise cancelling so you’re aware of your surroundings still. Come with different size ear buds for the best fit. They go on sale for $99 a few times a year, look around

      • Maud says:

        Thank you for your reply! I will keep an eye out for this.

  • Jeff says:

    OK, looks awesome. I’ve got some catching up to do

  • Sharon says:

    I’m totally into the challenge but wonder – shouldn’t we have a 1 day break after activating a single group od muscles? Isn’t it too much for the body to activate the Abs (and later on this month the boot, the legs etc.) day after day? I’d love an answer. Thanks!

    • Charitini says:

      Cassey says that if you follow the monthly calendar, you can designate any day you want as a rest day each week :)

  • Katrina McKeon says:

    Just finished day 2!!! Yeah!!! Feeling GREAT!!

  • Sabiha Fahad says:

    Hey casey… they say u should workout only 3-4 days and give your body a recovery time. How will i do it when there is no gap in your calendar?

    • Sharon says:

      I askes the exact question. Hope to find an answer. :)

    • Eva says:

      This month is combined with challenges, so Cassey mentioned that if we follow only the week challenge, it will be 7-days per week exercise. If however, we follow the monthly calendar and we continue after the 7-day challenge, Cassey mentioned that we should take one day per week (whatever day we prefer) to rest!

  • Elvina says:

    I just wanted to say THANK YOU! ❤
    You’re putting so much effort into creating monthly plans and challenges. I really appreciate that and I love you for doing that because I wouldn’t be able to do a good plan for myself If I tried. Thank you so much for creating all these plans, challenges & videos and making them accessible to anyone.

    Wishing you all the best for the future
    ~ Elvina

  • Val says:

    Hi, Cassey! First, I really want to thank u for that enormous work that u do. U’ve already changed many lives, and every day u continue doing so. I luv ur workouts and calendars. So I hv one request, I think many would join me. We all like to follow the whole calendar program not just one or two videos, but sometimes the exercises repeat themselves. This month we already hv a challenge program so it would be nice, if in additional workouts we did some other exercises (like u did for day 3, that was awesome). What I mean, if we do the challenge on the floor mostly maybe there’re some videos like standing abs… this would really help, we change the position but continue working abs. Thank u very much if u take it into consideration 😊

  • Reema says:

    Hi I follow you all the time. I want your help for toning my arms. I have followed your tutorials. But if can suggest me more it would be helpful

  • Katrina McKeon says:

    I started the challenge today. Feeling great!!!

  • Katrina McKeon says:

    #7daychallenge

  • Alina says:

    These 7-day challenges are cool and apparently effective but I liked the old version of a month calendar more as it was better balanced. Wouldn’t it bother you to create an alternative calendar for this month too? It would be so kind of you))

    • Rocha says:

      Libia

    • Bibis says:

      Yes Please!!! I don’t really like to work the same body part all week. The calendar feels really imbalanced for those of us who workout daily. I liked the last calendar better when we had a body part each day.

    • Jenna says:

      Yes! I hope June’s calendar is back to the old way, with different muscle groups every day and a built-in stretch day. After doing Day 1 of the Ab Challenge my abs were so sore the next two days, I couldn’t do the same video again! Clearly it’s effective, but I ended up picking up my printed April calendar so I can just recycle last month’s workouts again for May for more variety.

  • Lise says:

    I usually hate working out at home but you make it so fun and motivating <3

    Just wondering: for day 3 (5/3) are we meant to repeat silent death fat melting cardio video 3 times (for a total of 3 rounds) ?

    Thank you!

  • Michal Elul says:

    I am so in! started on Monday, so I have already two V :) cant wait to have them all

    My family is IN…we started Monday night!!

  • Nikki Ford says:

    I am so in it!!!! March was amazing, April got me 6″ slimmer on my waist and thighs, and I feel in love with my body and spirit! Thank you Cassey!

  • Chloe says:

    So in!! Today was my second day doing it and I’m totally feeling it!

  • Mirimes says:

    Hi Cassey! I really liked the coda thing, but can I ask you to put just the link of the workout instead of the video with player? Seems that the videos can’t be switched to fullscreen (even on the blogilates site, maybe it’s just a parameter in the embed code…) but on the blogilates site it was simple to copy-paste the workout name on yt to search the video, on coda seems a little worse… I think it can be resolved in no time (for future calendars) having just the link that will open the video on the yt app. Thanks for all of your hard work!

    • Mirimes says:

      Omg I’m so dumb there were the link in the hidden columns… Sorry for the stupid request

  • sushma raghu says:

    I am in

  • Cheryl says:

    I’m in !!! I started on Sunday and love this!

  • Denise Lutz says:

    Love the workouts started yesterday, hard for some of them especially the last round today on the extreme abs, but I am sticking with you.

  • Andreea says:

    Cassie do more of this kind of challenges, please! In combination with the monthly calendar, it works wonders!! In addition to these weekly challenges, I would much appreciate sharing some weekly tips. For example, I have problems with bloating and it drives me insane! It feels like I’m eating a pig every day when in fact I don’t eat as much as before…(instead, I eat faster). Or how to reduce flat fat on legs, clean your skin, etc. Thanks a million for all the workout videos you do for us, I’ve been with you since 2016. Greetings from Belgium!

  • kay says:

    I am unable to find the second video for today (5th) I only find 3 different extreme ab workouts and they are 15 min or less and not 25

    • Abbie says:

      Sounds like you’re ahead! The challenge officially started on Monday, May 4th so she hasn’t posted the second video yet. She’ll post it on Wednesday!

  • Jess says:

    I’m in! And I’ve started Day 2! Are we also reducing carbs such as brown rice and oats for this challenge?

  • hope says:

    only starting this today – I’m a bit late to the challenge, but at the end of the month I’ll go back and do the 4 days I’ve missed!! sooooo excited to get started, thanks so much for making the calender, and the youtube playlists are so helpful!!!!!!! xxx

    I’m in, Cassie, but you’re not going to see my waist on the internet!

  • Lola says:

    Can I eat brown rice during this week? I’ve been entering this spiral of fear of some foods… like rice (white or brown) or potatoes (even boiled). Thx!

  • Nessie says:

    Hi! If we do the 7 days challenge, do we still need to do the other may workout videos of the day? Hope someone answers me! Don’t want to over do it 😖

    • Em says:

      Hiya! You don’t have to do the other May workout videos if you don’t want to! You can just do the 7 day challenge :)

  • Emerald_Doll2020 says:

    lets get this done, am scared but i go this

  • Damaris says:

    I just found your channel and glad I found the May challenge right on time!! I’m excited to try.

  • Sarah says:

    I’ve been doing it just once because after you finish all the videos once, it’s a 45 min workout in total :) I hope that’s right

  • avazaboli says:

    let’s doooooo dissss yooohoooo :D

  • Snej says:

    I don’t understand something from day 3, do you have to go through the Silent Death Fat Melting Cardio video 4 times, like she says, or just once with the other videos?

    • JuliaSunshine says:

      Just once. But if it works one leg for one of the moves, do the video twice and work the other leg the second time. You only have to do it 4 times if it’s your only workout of the day.

    • Sarah says:

      been doing it just once because after you finish all the videos once, it’s a 45 min workout in total :) I hope that’s right

  • Bridget O. Gabriel says:

    I’m in!!

  • fbattle says:

    You make me so happy Cassey! I am totally signing up and can not possibly wait!

  • Danyon says:

    Hey! Love the work outs! But I wanted to suggest keeping your graphics, such as this ab challenge, accessible to all people. The colors here on the blog, and the orange one on Instagram, are incredibly hard to read. There needs to be more contrast in them so people who are color blind can still read them. Maybe have an alternate version available for those people and call it out so they know? Companies can get sued over this, I would hate to see that happen. as a ui/ux front end engineer it’s something I have to regularly think about at my job as I work on websites which is why I bring it up.

    Thanks for making all the work outs!

  • I’m pretty sure by the end of this challenge we will all be able to memorize word for word what you’ll say next in these videos!

  • Lauren Hall says:

    SOS! The Blogilates app doesn’t have any workouts for the month of May! I purchased it last month so I could save paper (and checking off the videos as I completed them was an added mood booster), but now there’s nothing on it! I tried deleting the app and reinstalling it, but I had to HUNT to find it again. Is it being phased out or is this a tech issue? Thanks!

  • Sabrina says:

    Thank you so much for this calendar! You’re right, it is motivating to have a plan and I’m excited to commit to one of yours for the first time! I really love doing workouts with you and your positivity is contagious (ahem-coronavirus-ahem)! School being canceled was a hard hit for me but I’m ready to get my butt kicked and feel stronger than ever!

  • GK says:

    How do you sign up for may challenge?

  • Archana says:

    Thank you souch mam for giving us such a nice workout plan. I really respect you and your work that you take time for us and spreading your experience with people..
    Am so much inspired from you. And i love your workout.. big fan of you.
    From india😊

  • Sarah says:

    I really am super grateful for these workouts, but I just don’t understand – given the option to supplement the challenges with the calendar, why wouldn’t we use those extra videos to target the other muscle groups? Otherwise I’m just supposed to let my abs lose all the hard work I put into them by weeks 2-4?? I do like the idea of targeted challenges, but it seems like by June I’ll be starting from scratch with most of my body…I guess I’ll just try some combination of this calendar and the bridal bootcamp.

    • Ella says:

      I have to agree wiht you

    • FDR says:

      I keep thinking about this every day! I’m disappointed in this calendar :( all my work from the April calendar feels like it’s gonna go to waste and I’ll have to start all over again!

  • Denise says:

    Hi Cassey thank to you i’m doing all your challenge and already feel the changes. Just one question does “cereal” means no avena neither ? Or what kind of cereal please.
    And sorry my english i’m french
    love you

  • Saraahx says:

    AH YES!!!!!! I’ve been dying to see something new in the workout calendars for a loooong time since it was always the same workouts months after months and got a bit bored (sorry, girl!! love your workouts still!). This is refreshing and I ABSolutely love the idea of one body part for each week. I already want more of these calendars hehe!. THe #7dayabchallenge will be such a nice add too. Thank you so much, Cassey <3 (I agree with @whitrstrickland about having more warm ups & cool down stretches videos!)

  • Nasser says:

    Adeem

  • Erica says:

    So excited!!!!

  • whitrstrickland says:

    Excited for the workouts. I would love to see a warm-up and cool-down stretch in upcoming videos. Just like PIIT28 and SummerSculpt workouts. Please make that happen.

  • Pratiti Mahato says:

    I found you on instagram few days ago and you already are my inspiration …. I don’t know bout the progress but ur fun videos helps to keep me active the whole day

  • Celeste says:

    There’s a lot of negativity in the comments so I just wanted to say that Cassie, thank you for providing a workout calendar and access to the amazing challenges you create. I can’t wait to do them!

  • Noon says:

    I love you! You make my workouts enjoyable and so much positive energy makes me look forward to working out with you everyday. I love your content and you feel like a real friend! Please dont ever stop.

  • bekahna03 says:

    For all of the people complaining about this month’s layout: You guys don’t have to follow the exact calendar. You can modify it to fit your needs. Cassey and the blogilates family work hard every month to create FREE workout calendars. FREE. Please don’t be a choosey beggar.

    And thank you, Cassey, and everyone at blogilates for all of the content you’ve given us! I enjoy the experimental months. It’s nice to change things up every once in a while. Don’t let the negativity get to you. You can’t please everyone. Hope you all are staying safe in quarantine!

    • Celine says:

      Well I don’t think most people were negative about it, some maybe. But others like me have concerns about the idea of working on the same muscles the whole week even with a rest day added to it. It’s known and said by many fitness instructors that working the same muscles numerous days in a row can be bad for muscle recovery, that it can injure the muscles and even prevent you from getting results. I’ve been following Cassey for a while and I doubt she’d do a calendar that could cause us harm in any way so I do want to try it! But I’d love if she could just adress the matter maybe in a next blog post or on social media to explain if it’s actually a myth or on what occasion it can be bad, etc. (But you are right, we are lucky that she gives us a cool free calendar every month!! 🙂)

    Started your April calendar workouts (& even missed a few dates here and there) but I swear I have new definition in my arms and abs/obliques that were never there before! Psyched to keep going in May <3

  • tess_harmony says:

    This is my second month doing the monthly calendar workouts. I am past beginner level, but not at the level yot for focusing on only one muscle group a week. My solution is, instead of doing the calendar horizontally, I am going to do it vertically, that way I’ll be switching up each day :)

  • Marie-Jeanne says:

    I am worried that if I don’t train every muscles every week and stop for 3 weeks they will melt away… Is there a way to make sure that won’t happen?

  • Becky says:

    I’ve done some of your workouts but this is my first time following a calendar of yours so I’m excited! What’s the best way to do the workouts per day–just do them all back to back? Or do them AM/PM? Or just one? Or whatever you feel like?

  • Heshani Perera says:

    excited <3 <3 <3

  • Maya says:

    Thank you so much for the time and effort you’re putting in to making sure everyone feels good about themselves in quarantine! Your videos have helped me get this time period and I’m forever grateful :)

  • e l s a says:

    do you have a booty workout?

    • Marissa Tanner says:

      Do you have modification for diastaisis recti?

    • Brande says:

      She has a great booty workout on the FitOn app

  • SHRUTI says:

    OMG!!! I was looking forward to the new calendar and it is amazing. Your videos have helped me a lot and now I am ready to follow a whole month of your planned workouts! xx

    • Maxine says:

      Looking forward to it… can focus on 1 part of the body each week👍🏽

  • Catrina says:

    Hi Cassey, firstly I wanted to thank you for providing free workouts and and workout plans especially during this time. However, I really am not a fan of this month’s layout. I worry that it won’t give my muscles enough time to recover and I think that I will struggle with motivation if I’m working the same body part every day of the week. I appreciate that you are trying something new but I really hope we go back to the original layout next month. Unfortunately, I think I’m going to have to modify this month or follow another month e.g. May 2019.

    • Aly says:

      Agreed! I’m very worried not only about the lack of rest for muscles, but also that a few days into the week I won’t be able to really fully do the exercises due to muscle fatigue, even if one factored a day in for rest.

      So grateful for Cassey’s plans as always but I think my plan will be to do the Week Challenge vídeos and then do the remaining videos from another day – eg May 4th the ab challenge plus the butt videos from another day, next day abs and legs, next day abs and arms, etc.

      That way I’m still doing the challenge each week AND will still complete every video for the month, but am not going to completely fatigue myself so much that I can’t complete a whole week!

    • Joanna Siegfried says:

      Same issue. So I’ll just do the days out of order. :)

  • Bella says:

    I’m really loving to follow your workout calendars for the past months and Loved the Concept, but this month’s calendar is different. I really don’t Like the thought of giving my muscles No time to recover for one Week straight – that’s just unhealthy, isn’t it?:(
    Please create the next calendar in the “old” Style.

    • tess_harmony says:

      I agree, I’m not at the level to do this without giving muscle groups a break for a whole week :( I think if there were two calendar options it would be great.

  • Paige Foster says:

    wont parts of the body be neglected for most of the month this way?

  • Haeley says:

    Oooh, I’m super excited about this!! I came to download the monthly calendar and this is just the icing on the cake! I’ve been needing to kick my butt into gear. Thank you for this, Cassey. ♥️

  • MiRai says:

    Popsters, I need an opinion / advise. I have really weird body shape, it´s hrd to buy pants xD I need to thin my waist so I´m thinking about implementing at least one video or one move reps for my waist each day (addition to may workout calendar). Any recommendations please?

    • A says:

      Yeah, I think you could either choose one of Cassey’s awesome waist/obliques videos she has (i really like the Quick Burn WAIST SHAPER Workout!) and do it everyday or every other day along with the calendar. Or, you could always put together your own workout out of her moves that you feel like work for you ( this is what i usually do when I want to target one area). Some ideas for moves would be candlestick dippers, hip twists, russian twists, etc. I hope this helps you at all and good luck! Remember to always love your body even while you are working to improve it and get stronger <3

      • MiRai says:

        Thank you very much :) I had similar idea – instead of doing a whole video maybe do few moves for waist of my choice which I like and enjoy (love candlestick dipprs) so that I will be motivated enough to do them even after doing rest of that day´s workout :) Thank you again and good luck on your journey as well :)

    • Nabila says:

      Why don’t u follow with one of her side waist workout video and add it to your workout and it does works I tried it and my waist was snatched.

      • MiRai says:

        Thank you :) mine won´t be snached because of all the chocolate , but a little would help xD

    • Lia says:

      I highly recommend doing Plank Hip Dips! Those can be pretty difficult at first but they really helped me tighten my waist.
      Go into a low plank position (on your elbows) and try to touch the floor with the side of your hips.
      Good luck & remember to take care of yourself :)

      • MiRai says:

        Thanks :) I will consider it :) I actually enjoy hip dips, definitelly one of the easier ones compared to side plank for example (my shoulder joints always die before my waist does). oh and candletick dipper, my fav :D
        Thank you again and good luck on your journey :)

  • MiRai says:

    This month is by weeks?! Oh god , I´m so gonna die @[email protected] week of arms? week of abs? this just may be the hardest month

  • Sarah says:

    How does the May calendar work? Do I pick one of the choices for each day??

    • Lia says:

      The goal is to complete all the workout videos listed for a day. If you want to start out slow then I recommend Cassey’s Beginner Workout Plan :)

    • gemma says:

      i think you do everything it says for that day. but if it looks like too much maybe try just choose one?

  • Mrs. Cobb says:

    Hi, I’m new to the community I started on Apr14 and brought a friend although I’ve know about your channel and Blog forever. Finally Got my motivation !!! So my question is will you be doing a focused challenge every week per body part??? Also when following the calendar, do you follow only what it says or do the challenge 3 time through as well (or 2 times depending on which day)? So basically do you do the challenge and the calendar? Even though I look forward to rest days im excited to do this calendar!!! I think since its focused on one body part it wont be to hard on my body but its crazy how after 2.5 weeks I see and feel such incredible results!! Thanks again for the Motivation and Workouts. Keep on keeping on Cassey!!! -PS We need more positive people in the world so I hope this positivity is bright enough to out shine all of the negativity!!

  • EmmaKragh says:

    OMG this month’s calendar is amazing!! Thank you for keeping me motivated and inspired Cassey!! <3 xx

  • Jannelle says:

    I am so excited for this one! I like the change in format – one full week to concentrate on a muscle group is extra intense! Still hoping for a 100 arm challenge!

  • María V says:

    Hi Cassey! If I want to do the abs challenge + the calendar, during the abs week, do I have to do the Waist Whittler Cardio Pilates and Beautiful Ab Sculpt twice a day, or just follow the may Calendar? (Since those videos already appeal on the ab week of it) I’m not sure if I explained myself correctly, If anyone can help me, I would be super grateful❤

  • Miss Izzel says:

    I’m so looking forward!!! <3

  • fbattle says:

    I am totally in and can’t wait!!!!!!!!!

  • Ala says:

    Dear Cassey, is it bad if one follows the calendar but doesn’t have a free day? I know that we have the option to designate a free day, but I would like to know if it’s harmful for the body to not have a rest day.

    • Joanna says:

      Rest days are essential. Not only to keep yourself from injury, but to let your muscles do their thing and get stronger.
      You can do low intensity stuff (yoga, stretching, gentle walks) on rest days to stay active but make sure you don’t over do it.
      If you’re a workout beginner, you might want to try to modify this schedule or choose a different month to follow… the same muscle group for a whole week probably isn’t the best choice.

  • Ciarag88 says:

    Is this even good to do? Your muscles need time to recover between sessions … don’t think I will be following Blogilates this month.

    • Saraahx says:

      We’ll definitely need a break. Rest days are important!!! I still think that this month’s workout calendar is achievable. All we have to do is catch up on the workouts we didn’t do. Plus, they won’t be that long, and won’t exceed 1 hour :)

  • Dobi says:

    Oh my god, I’m so looking forward to the following month! I love that every week is for one part of the body! I am so motivated right now.

  • suvi says:

    Wish I could workout and do the may calendar, but my foot is still recovering from running a half marathon…

    • Chris says:

      You can still workout try working out your arms instead

  • Ala says:

    I really like the design of this month’s calendar! The colors and also the routines look great <3

  • Bea says:

    Scared but excited! Thanks for this!!

  • kostancek says:

    Definitely in!!!!!

  • Blanka says:

    Wait do I still do 3 rounds of the abs challenge, even if I’m following the calendar?

  • RITA says:

    I LOVE YOUR WORKOUTS!! BEST PLANS <3

  • Kassia says:

    Cassey,

    I love following your workout calendar. But this one is making me so anxious. I really don’t like the thought of focussing on one body part for one week then not doing it again for the rest of the month. Please don’t make this the new style. Please :(

  • Selman says:

    It says in the blog “feel free to designate one rest day a week. You can pick any day you would like!”. If we’re supposed to have a rest day why would you put workouts every single day? I like taking my rest on sunday so I would usually just switch the days. But now it makes me feel bad about myself that I will be full on skipping a workout and won’t be able to check off every box on the calendar. Also it’s triggering for people with rest day guilt. I’m sure a lot of people won’t know you’re supposed to take a rest day or purposely won’t do it to feel accomplished for finishing everything on the calendar and that’s just bad for your body.

    • Tina:) says:

      I don’t think she means any Harm. If your doing the 7days it says no rest days. But 7days doesn’t have to be a straight 7, taking a day break and eating healthy won’t change your results. It’s just a nice way for some to kick of a healthy lifestyle. It’s good to listen to your body, if you feel guilty that’s okay too but it doesn’t mean you aren’t working hard. We are supposed to actively push ourselves because our bodies can do it, they go through worse everyday. Do what makes your body and you healthy and happy :)

    • Theo says:

      Stop being so critical and try to be grateful for this free workout plan… And how can you say that ” a lot of people won’t know you’re supposed to take a rest day” when it’ s written in this article… Maybe it doesn’t have a rest day because every week consists in a new challenge for another body part (Maybe not everybody has the time/wants to work out every day of the month and they will only opt for a 7 day challenge this month, in witch case” there are no rest days”)… WE LOVE YOU CASSEY!

    • alex says:

      You can take any day as a rest day. If you want to take Sundays off and it’s triggering to you, crop the calendar so that you can’t see the Sunday column. You can change the calendar in any way you see fit. Don’t like this one? Write out your own! It’s your fitness journey, you don’t need to stick to someone else’s plan just because they put it out there. I think she’s just trying to help people who are stuck at home in quarantine, by giving them something to do each day.

    • Ella says:

      The fact that she has taken the time to even design this workout calendar shows how dedicated she is towards her followers. She clearly stated that you can take a rest day of if you would like to, but she has made 7 day challenges so thats why she didn’t include rest days. Instead of being super negative about it, you can extend your may routine for 4 days, have a rest day, and do the workouts as intended. You will be finishing in June but I suppose that being behind just 4 days wouldn’t be an issue. I also do have rest day guilt and I know its more of a mental factor rather than a physical one but we are in quarantine, our bodies are not moving as they would on a regular basis so one extra day of working out is just for your benefit. You can chose not to do that workout or do it, it’s your choice, each body is different and recovers at different speeds. You definitely don’t need to look at it through a negative perspective, it’s room for self improvement and getting to know your body.

  • Yogita Singh says:

    Excited to work on a particular body part a whole week!!! Its good to have changes though!!
    LOVE YA CASSEY ..
    XOXO <3

  • Mateja says:

    Hi, Cassey. I just finished the April 2020 challenge. I can slowly see the body changing. woohoo. :) I will try to do the May challenge as well. So, if I understood right, when I am doing the monthly workout, I can pick ANY day as my free day?

  • Neha says:

    Hey cassey!! Thankyou for your videos and calenders.. they help us alot to get stronger.. i have a doubt.. if i want to develop strength.. what should i follow?? Monthly calendar or the Piit28 calendar?

  • BabyDoubleJ says:

    Looks like it’s gonna be a great month, at least work out wise!!! I feel ya on all the days and now months blending together!!! It’s crazy that what feels like a year ago was only March!! At least us PopStars are making the best of a bad situation and making sure our bodies are strong! That’s really all we can do in something like this…I love that this month we focus on a different body part every week! It makes me dizzy sometimes when we switch it up a lot! This looks like it will be hard but fun! With summer right around the corner, at least we will all be super beach ready! Well, except for my hair! Thx Cassey!!! #PopPilates #Blogilates #PopArmy #EverydayIsTheSame #WakeMeUpWhenIt’sOver xoxoJJ

  • Kelly says:

    Love the new workout but can hardly read the charts, the color contrast is so slight. Would you be able to create another that meets web accessibility standard for AA color compliance?

    • Lauren says:

      YAAASSS! 🙌 Accessibility is so important! Thank you!

  • Amanda Lim says:

    I am in too!

  • Abbie says:

    Holy cow I’m so stoked for this! Thanks so much, Cassey! Can’t wait for Monday!

  • Imi Rog says:

    Love this calendar design, is there a May calendar with this design, just as a calendar? I know that there is a current May 2020 calendar, but with a different design…

  • shaina says:

    waiting for this! ❤

  • Angela says:

    I’m in!

  • sjanecox5 says:

    Love that we’re switching things up

  • Brenna says:

    What can happen when you dont work out the abs for the next three weeks? Looks different! Very innovative!

    • Juliette says:

      Cassey I have been a huge fan of you and I’ve been doing the calandra workouts for years now but how are our muscles supposed to recover if there’s no rest day?

  • Abby says:

    I don’t think I’m into this new layout Cassey…

  • Rebecca says:

    Are there any apartment friendly moves to do instead if the jumping moves?

  • sahithi719 says:

    This is interesting, focus on one area each week, Love it :)

  • Alexandria says:

    I’m excited. I just started doing the beginner calendar but it wasn’t enough for me so I’m so excited to start this months calendar. I think it will be challenging to focus on one body part for a week and I am up for that challenge :)

  • Zara says:

    Looking forward to this challenge!!!

  • Elizabeth says:

    I love the new layout, I’m very excited!! Also thrilled about the abs challenge, thank you Cassey!

  • Leng says:

    Thank you so much. I just started to follow your fitness calendar 2nd week o april and I feel so good, i didnt see any changes on my weight but i feel lighter and flexible. It helps me a lot. Keep inspiring others 😍😘

  • Rebecca says:

    I’m definitely in… woohoo 💪

  • Ella says:

    Could We still do the may calendar and the abs challenge.

  • Abbagail says:

    I’m so excited to do this ab challenge! Also, thank you for all the work you put in every month to make these wonderful workout calendars and all the videos! It is a huge motivation to follow along each day.

  • Marta says:

    Oh jeez this is crazy! 😵 but I love it! 💪

  • Claire says:

    If you are doing the May Calendar, are you still supposed to do 3 rounds of the waist whittler cardio pilates or is it only one then?

  • Amber says:

    Sounds good, I’m in!

  • Emily says:

    Ooh! Interesting new layout for the calendar! This is going to be challenge to focus on an area for a whole week, but I know we can do it!! I’m totally in! Xx

  • Celine says:

    Hello Cassey, thank you for this new calendar! Though I’m a bit worried about working on the same muscles for a whole week.. I’ve always been told by coach and fitness instructors that working on the same muscles numerous days in a row isn’t good for your body, that it is kinda the best way to injure the muscles and not see results because muscles need rest to get bigger/leaner etc. So I guess this might be wrong, I’d love to read your thoughts on the matter!

  • Lysandra says:

    Cool, this is so different! Looking forward to it!

  • Michele says:

    Thank you Cassey! I’m in. This is the suitable challenge for me. Have to work on my abs more. What a great moment when I’m also joining to the monthly calendar work out after finishing the beginners calendar. 👍🏼

  • amithistbz says:

    Super excited but also nervous. April was the first full month I completed so I don’t know if I’m up for doing the same area for a week but I’ll give it a try! Worst case, if I feel like I can’t do it one day, I’ll make that my rest day. Any advice on how to know if you should give it a rest one day, to make sure we don’t push it and hurt ourselves?

  • Stephanie kilian says:

    I’m in!

  • Lillian says:

    I’m in! Let’s go!

  • Natalia says:

    ooooooh, a new challenge every week? interesting!

  • MRS ANGENETTE PARTEE says:

    I am all in and ready

  • kkthanks says:

    There’s no rest day on the May calendar anyway regardless of the abs challenge… because…. there’s a new body part challenge each week. So. No more stretching????

  • Rachana Parekh says:

    Wow, this calendar looks so different than the previous and I love the way you’ve set up the workouts! Gonna be tough to choose which day to designate as the rest day lol. Excited to begin!

  • Marissa says:

    SOUNDS LIKE A GREAT IDEA! I’m excited to feel strong and most importantly feel the burn 💙 thank you for your workouts during quarantine Cassey! :)

  • Ebone Ingram says:

    Not gonna lie…kinda nervous about exclusively working the same body part 6-7 days in a row on the calendar this month. I’ll definitely try each new video when it drops, though!

  • Miriana says:

    I’m kind of worried to jump on the May calendar bandwagon, and having a week full targeted specific to one area. How can that soreness heal? D:

  • Dagadowa says:

    Hi Cassey! I’m so excited for this month calendar. I started working out with you at the beggining of April and even though it’s only been a month I feel much better. I wasn’t keen on sport at all but now I’m actually much more motivated thanks to you and I actually enjoy these workouts!

  • Marissa says:

    Yay!!! Can’t wait to do next months calendar AND challenge. I just started last month and I can already tell that I am getting stronger and more toned!!:)

  • Alice says:

    Great idea ! I can’t follow the first week because I am pregnant :'(
    But I will follow you the following weeks!
    Thank you for sharing

    • Jie says:

      I’m pregnant as well and would love to be able to join in. Casey would you please consider suggesting some modifications for pregnant and postnatal women?

  • Sandra says:

    Wooooow! This month’s calendar seems to be so great!!! I can’t to do it all😍

  • Holly5 says:

    Super excited to get started!

  • Kristen says:

    An abs challenge on top of abs week on the calendar! CRAZY!!! Haha I admit that I’m tempted to give it a go but also nervous because I feel like I still haven’t built up my core enough to keep up. I am excited for the May calendar! I’ve been checking almost every day for the past few days for it. Haha. So glad its here now! Thank you Cassey!

  • loganthomson says:

    I’m definitely okay trying something new, HOWEVER – where is stretch/rest day, Cassey?! That is always like my little reward on Fridays lol. I guess I’ll have to go without it this month.

  • Panni says:

    OMG I love this!! 🤩 I was worrying about how to squeeze in my time both the calendar workouts and the ab challenge.. thank you so much, this is gonna be an amazing month ❤️

  • Sarina says:

    so excited for this!! I’ve been waiting all week for the calendar to come out! Thank you so much Cassey for keeping me motivated during quarantine:)
