30 Day Challenge: Day 8: Standing Buns and Thigh Slimming Workout 15 Minutes (Bod...

Hi Everyone!

It's day 8 of my 30 Day Workout Challenge! I have been feeling fantastic since starting this challenge! Getting in a minimum of 15 minutes of exercise per day has improved my energy so much. 

Today's workout is a standing workout for the Buns and Thighs. It's body weight only, but it will sculpt your legs and glutes from every angle to strengthen and shape the lower body. 

I only went through the workout once, but it's a great one to repeat. I am planning a higher intensity workout for tomorrow, and Tuesday is a Boot Camp day so I kept today lower impact. 

Poor Jesse is still sick, but his cough is getting better. I made him some homemade chicken soup so hopefully that does the trick. 

I hope you all enjoy today's workout. Don't forget to check-in as you progress through the challenge. You can check in on: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter

  1. Thank you for helping out with my "thick thighs" issue. This workout was right on time. I will be incorporating these in my cardio routine 2x a week.

    1. How did she help you with this issue?

    2. It has for sure helped me. In a month I lost an inch on both thighs and my waist just by doing her 30 day challenge. Excited to see what else happens as I stick with it. :)

  2. Awesome workout! Was able to do 2 rounds. Getting stronger by the day! Thank you Melissa
