This program challenges you with routines that have exercises going for 1 min each. The goal is to see how many reps you can do as it progressively gets harder, and to compare your progression at the start & end to see how much stronger you've grown.

The challenge itself isn’t just one minute long. Instead, each exercise is 60 seconds, or one minute, long. The purpose of this program is to keep track of the number of reps you complete in good form on the first day, and then see how far you’ve progressed by the end of the 3 weeks.
Do as much as you can for each exercise. If you need to take breaks, take them. Just don’t give up! Keep trying and work your way up until you’re able to keep going for the full minute.
The goal of this program is to challenge yourself and keep track of your progress. By counting your reps for each exercise on the first day, you can see your progress starting from the beginning of the challenge until the end of the 3 weeks. By seeing progress, it helps you feel more accomplished.
If you are finding the workouts to be too easy, you can always add equipment to increase the resistance. For example, for the booty workout, you can add weights to make it a little more challenging. If the workouts are too hard, please feel free to take it slow and take breaks as needed.
You are recommended to do ALL videos listed for each day in the schedule, e.g. if a day has three videos, you should do all three. If a video is listed twice, you should do it twice. That being said, if a video is labeled as optional then it’s up to you if you want to do it or not. The warmup and cool down videos are optional but highly recommended.
While these schedules are my recommended guide, yes, that’s absolutely fine. Go at your own pace, take breaks as needed, and do as much as you can. If that’s only 1 video per day, it’s still great that you’re exercising! Then you can work your way up to being able to do all of them. Just remember if you take a long rest/break between videos, you may need to warm up again when you get back to it.
Every body is different, so the amount of weight you lose will vary greatly from person to person. If you have just started your fitness journey, you may lose more weight in the first week or so due to water weight. When you consume fewer calories than your body burns, your body starts dipping into its stores of energy, known as glycogen. The glycogen in your body is bound to water, so when you’re burning glycogen for fuel, the body also releases that water, hence losing water weight, and then find that your weight loss starts to slow thereafter. Make sure your goals are realistic in order to sustain the weight loss in the long-term. Don’t forget, you may lose weight but not lose inches, or you may remain the same weight but drop a dress size. The best way to track your physical progress is by tracking your measurements and taking before/after photos at the same time of day, in the same clothing, from the same angle. Make sure share your results on Discord, Instagram or YouTube so that we can all be encouraged by your success!
Diet plays an important role in losing weight but you also need to ensure you are eating a balanced, nutritious diet to fuel your body for these workouts. This is different for everyone and should be discussed with a professional - please speak with a registered dietitian or nutritionist, depending on your individual needs.
