When In Doubt, Squat It Out. 21 Day Summer Booty Challenge.

Good morning my Dumbbellhousewife friends. I am ready to take my fitness game into HYPERDRIVE!

For the next couple of weeks for The MAX ELITE, we are putting a little extra focus on the booty! I don’t know about you, but I always get a little worried when summer comes around and I am not feeling my best. So, for the next 21 days, we are going to be squatting, lunging, jumping and all sorts of crazy moves. Come join me and the rest of The MAX fit fam and feel the burn!

I will be posting a new workout every day and will add it to this post. Make sure to check in every morning and finish the workout by the end of the day. You guys down? If you are committed add your name to the comments below.  Tag @dumbbellhousewife and @themax_maxedoutperformance if you want a shout out.
