PSL Challenge: Days 21-30: Lunges

Today we're adding the final move to the Lean Girls Fitness PSL Challenge - lunges! Lunges are great for your lower body - they work your quads, glutes, and hamstrings. Add these lunges to your 50 pushups and 100 squats for a total body workout. 


We're doing basic forward lunges for this challenge. To do a forward lunge, stand with your legs hip-width apart and put your hands on your hips. Step forward with your right foot, lower yourself until your right knee is over your right foot. Your legs should make 90-degree angles. Step back as you raise yourself up and repeat with your left leg.

Keep up with this PSL Challenge for all of September, and feel free to enjoy a pumpkin spice latte or two - you earned it! For more information on our online fitness program, visit leangirlsfitness.com.

PSL Challenge: Days 11-20: Squats

Today we're adding a new move to the Lean Girls Fitness PSL Challenge - squats! Just add these squats to your 50 pushups for a total body workout. This challenge will get you sculpted and lean, so feel free to enjoy a pumpkin spice latte or two. 😉



We're doing basic bodyweight squats for this challenge. To do a bodyweight squat, stand with your legs slightly wider than hip-width with your feet slightly angled out. Keep your knees in line with your feet as you squat. Lower yourself by moving your butt backwards, and then stand. You can raise your arms in front of you or you can let them hang loose at your side. Just don't place them on your legs or use your hands to push yourself up.

September PSL Challenge: Pushup

It's September - which means cooler weather is on the way and the beginning of Pumpkin Spice Latte season. So at Lean Girls Fitness, we're doing our own PSL Challenge - pushups, squats, and lunges. These moves will get you sculpted and lean so that you can enjoy a few pumpkin spice lattes without the guilt. 😉



We're beginning with pushups - starting with just 5 and working up to 50. Pushups are a great upper body exercise - they work your chest, arms, shoulders, back, and abs. To do a pushup, get in plank position with your hands slightly wider than shoulder width. Your feet should also be about shoulder width - you can move them slightly in if you prefer, but a wider base of support will give you greater stability for your pushup. Inhale as you bend your arms and lower your body towards the floor, pause, and exhale as you straighten your arms to lift your body. Your body should stay in a straight line from your head to your toes - don't lift your butt up in the air or let it drop down. If you need to, you can do a modified pushup on your knees. The same rules apply - keep your body straight and don't raise that butt in the air.
