HAPPY JULY!!! This is the month of sunshine, smiles, short shorts, sunscreen, sand, and swimsuits! (What other “s” words can I include!?) That’s why your July Calendar was artfully painted to bring you to the beach. I really hope you like it 🙂
That’s why you will have daily stretch homework. Only 10 min a day and I promise that if you are 100% dedicated you will either get into the splits or get very very close!
HERE’S HOW TO JOIN IN ON THE CHALLENGE!
1. Screenshot the image above and post it on your instagram as a sign that you’re in! Make sure to hashtag #journeytosplits and #blogilates. Also follow @blogilates and @poppilatesofficial because we’re announcing random winners every Friday just for participating!
(If you don’t have an Instagram account or don’t feel comfortable posting on your personal one, just make a new one dedicated to your fitness! Feel free to use the words “POPster”, “POP”, or “Blogilates” in your username!)
2. Stick to the 30 days. Do not skip a single day. Promise? That’s how you’ll get into the splits. Every day I want you to post a picture of the pose of the day as a sign that you did your stretches.
3. Ok but here’s how this month’s challenge is different than The Stretch Project. Everyday I will need you to do stretches 1-5, your foundational stretches. You may not skip them. So, the first 5 days, you are doing the first 5 stretches! Then beginning day 6, you will just add one move on. So on day 6, you will do 1-5 and 6. On day 30, you will do 1-5 and 30. Get it? So you will do 6 moves a day beginning day 6.
4. How long to hold? I want you to hold each stretch for around 30 sec to 1 min per side. Total, each day you should spend around 10 min. stretching.
Alright guys! I cannot wait to see you start this month’s calendar! It is going to be AWESOMENESS!!! Also, feel free to share with me your fave summer essentials…like your latest bikini, your new braided summer hairdo…your summer smoothie…whatever! Just tweet me @blogilates or photo tag me on Instagram! That’s the easiest way for me to see!!
K love you and see you soon!!!
