Daily Check-in: Thursday, October 12th & KICK A$$ COMMUNITY CHALLENGE DAY 4!

This is how I always feel the day after a kickboxing workout. ⬆️⬆️

Hello and Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening Blenders!

Can you believe that it's Thursday already? This week is flying by (I'm not too upset about that haha).

Are you ready for Day 4 of our Kick A$$ Challenge? I'll admit that it has been a long time since I've done this particular workout, so I really don't know what to expect from it. I planned it as a sorta almost recovery day before Day 5, but I'm not sure if this is how it'll play out. So, we'll see how today's workout will go, but hopefully we'll feel prepared for Day 5!

Here's the link to today's workout:

Day 4: Low Impact Cardio & Bodyweight Strength: https://www.fitnessblender.com/videos/low-impact-cardio-and-total-body-toning-workout

Just a few remindesr about this Kick A$$ Community Challenge: it will last until about Friday, October 12th, and is primarily focused on kickboxing workouts! And if you are too sore to complete a workout, please don't worry! Take a rest day if you need to, or swap the workout for something else that'll work for you! Don't push through it if you are sore! You won't "ruin" anything by taking an extra rest day if you need to!

Post right here in the comments below once you've officially got your #KickA$$WorkoutComplete and share how liked this workout! And just in case, here's another look at what our workout schedule will look like for this entire Challenge:

Kick A$$ Community Challenge Option #3 (about 30-50 minutes/day)

Day 1: Kickboxing & Upper Body Strength Training: https://www.fitnessblender.com/videos/upper-body-workout-cardio-kickboxing-strength-and-cardio-workout

Day 2: Lower Body Strength Training: https://www.fitnessblender.com/videos/build-a-booty-workout-strength-and-pilates-workout-for-butt-and-thighs

Day 3: Kickboxing & Core: https://www.fitnessblender.com/videos/cardio-kickboxing-and-abs-workout-kickboxing-for-stress-and-cardio-benefits

Day 4: Low Impact Cardio & Bodyweight Strength: https://www.fitnessblender.com/videos/low-impact-cardio-and-total-body-toning-workout

Day 5: Kickboxing & Lower Body Strength Training: https://www.fitnessblender.com/videos/cardio-kickboxing-and-lower-body-strength-workout

Remember to always take the workouts at your own pace, and if anything feels to difficult or too sore, then don't do it! This is meant to be fun and motivating, not to risk injury! And if you need an extra rest day thrown in there, then please take one! It's all about making this Challenge work for you personally! So do what you need to, be safe, and have fun!!

Also, if you'd like, once you complete this Challenge, I think it would be cool if we celebrated in a way similar to the 1000 Calorie Workout Party we had a while back. Where you create a post, with optional picture (maybe of an arm flex, thumbs up, sweaty shirt, "Workout Complete" screen, etc.), titled "#KickA$$WorkoutComplete" and we can all celebrate by flooding the forums with our #CommunityChallengeCompletes! This is totally optional, and just an idea--not at all mandatory, but it is something fun to do (in my opinion)! *Note that if you want to post a pic, you do have to create a new post each time. Otherwise, you can still create new post with just text to celebrate, or you can comment on that day's check-in too! Only if you want to though!*

Alright, I'm combining the Daily Check-ins with the Kick A$$ Check-ins just to save a bit of time! So feel free to post with your #WorkoutCompleteForK&D or #KickA$$WorkoutComplete or both on here!

So, now whether or not your taking part in the Challenge: how are you all doing today? Are you working out today, or are you resting?

My #WorkoutCompleteForK&D is Day 4 of the Challenge. I'm feeling a bit sore through my upper back, so hopefully this workout will be kind to those muscles lol.

And what about some good food today?

I'm thinking some kind of soup. So many of you have been discussing soups and stews lately, that I think I'm gonna have to take the plunge and make some! Thanks for the ideas too!

What about you Blenders? What's on the menu for today?

Also: I hope all of our Blenders in the Southeast U.S. are doing alright, and made it safe through the storm. I know it's still traveling across that part of the country, so please, take care of yourselves, and stay safe.

Well Blenders, I hope you all have a great day, and thanks so much for checking in with me!
