Who is ready to target their ENTIRE body with a new and deliciously painful workout challenge? I don’t know about you, but I’m obsessed with all kinds of fitness challenges. Literally OBSESSED. Challenges such as the squats for 30 days challenge, Spell Your Name Challenge, the 3 in 1 Walking Challenge, the 7 Minute Plank Challenge, the Bella Body 10 Days Challenge, etc etc etc. You name them and I’ll do them (if I haven’t yet!) I find that fitness challenges are so effective because they bring out your competitive side. And we all know that when our competitive side is out, nothing or no one can stop us…..right? 🙂
I have created my own version of the Alphabet Workout Challenge! Have you heard of this challenge before? Have you tried it? I’ve seen this challenge go around, but it’s not as popular as it should be! The goal of this challenge is to *try* to go through the entire alphabet (in order obviously!) by completing the exercise assigned to each letter. The versions I’ve seen usually consist of 7-8 exercises spread throughout the alphabet. For example, they could have you do 30 seconds of Burpees when you reach letter B, F, S, Z, etc. It’s cool and all, but I like VARIETY. I don’t like repeating the same exercise over and over again. So you know that I just had to spice things up in my version of this challenge to add MORE variety! In my challenge, every letter of the alphabet consists of a completely different exercise. No exercise is repeated more than once! See, by adding more exercises, you get to target more muscles during your workout or even the same muscles, but through different angles. It sounds good, doesn’t it?

If you’re loving what you’re reading so far, keep on reading. I’m going to explain my version of the challenge a little more and then I’ll set you free and let you explore this challenge on your own! 😉
26 exercises – 30 seconds each
Each exercise is meant to be repeated for 30 seconds only, *except* for 4 exercises that should be done for a total of 1 minute : 30 seconds on each side of your body (left + right)
- I – Leg Swings: left leg 30 seconds + right leg 30 seconds
- M -Donkey Kicks: left leg 30 seconds + right leg 30 seconds
- R -Glute Rainbows: left leg 30 seconds + right leg 30 seconds
- Z -Side Plank Hold: left side 30 seconds + right side 30 seconds
(So if you are able to reach letter Z, you just got yourself a 15 minute workout in! WOOO.)
GOAL OF CHALLENGE:
Start with letter A and make your way down the alphabet by completing the exercise assigned to each letter for 30 SECONDS. See how far down you can make it through the alphabet, without cheating or skipping an exercise! The ultimate goal is to reach letter Z, but any progress you make is still worthy of an applause.
I hope you enjoyed this challenge! Definietly let me know if you try it out and what letter you got up to!
Until next time,
