Default 30 Days to a Better Booty Challenge!

Hello ladies!
Please join me for a 30-day challenge to tone, lift, and get that much closer to an enviable backside!

While doing a little weight loss research, I ran into an article that said hip thrusts and glute bridges are much more effective at quickly building your glutes and helping you "activate" your glutes when you're doing other more popular "butt" exercises like squats and lunges. If you are doing squats and only feeling them in your thighs (like me), this challenge is for you!
This article also claimed that glutes are the primary muscle used in these two exercises (you can feel it, trust me!), while squats are primarily thigh.

So let's put it to the test! Here, based off of the famous squat challenges, is the challenge poster:


Rules? There are no rules! Just join in, and share your progress and struggles! We can help keep eachother accountable and make it to the end of this challenge!
A few pointers:
- I highly recommend you do a before and after picture so you can see your results!
- If glute bridges are too easy for you, you can use weights or a resistance band to make it more difficult. If you have access to a gym or equipment and want to swap glute bridges out for hip thrusts, do so! I will be doing these at home and I have no strength to begin with, therefore I will be sticking to level 1 glute bridges!

I am actually almost finished with my 30 day squat challenge. I will be done after this week. I would like to join you but I will be a little behind.

Shamac: Feel free to join in once you are done with your squat challenge! There is no specific start or end date, so feel free to start whenever is best for you!

xRiotGirl: Yay! I'm sure it will make a great addition to your current routine or a great start. I was blessed with a completely flat pretty much non-existent butt so I really hope I'll love mine by the end of this challenge.

I would say I started this challenge yesterday. I did the first 10 after reading the article to test out and then decided to make the challenge to help me stick with it, challenges always help me stay motivated!
I did Day 2 today, I felt like I could do more after the first 15, so I ended up doing two sets of 15. I definitely felt it in my lower abs today.
I've been bad and still haven't taken my before picture, but will do so asap! I don't have a full length mirror right now so it's a little bit tricky.

Mountain Momma, lol, now that you point that out, that is funny. I didn't even realize I said that. Good catch

Got 'er done. I'm starting to feel these! First few days were kind of easy, but it's getting tougher.
