This Squat Challenge Workout Will Effectively Lift And Shape Your Butt & Thighs

This Squat Challenge Workout Will Effectively Lift And Shape Your Butt & Thighs

I have been involved with physical fitness for many, many years. Most of us at one point or another have at least TRIED to get into shape. For me personally, when it comes to the battle of the bulge, the struggle is quite real!

Now with summer fast approaching, (though the weather may seem to disagree) many of us are trying to get that “beach physique.” Though we at Lifehack believe that everyone is beautiful as they are, if you are an individual who wishes to further tone, shape or lift your back side, the movements in the following video are guaranteed to whoop your butt into shape! Pun totally intended on that one!

Our friends over at Fitness Blender have put together a 100 rep squat challenge for you guys! The workout is a series of squats that are guaranteed to take your gluteus maximus, aka your buttocks, to the next level! This workout guides you through a series of 10 distinct squat movements, for 10 repetitions each. That means that you will be doing 10 different moves, 10 times each. No equipment is required for this workout. This session uses the one piece of equipment that we all have, our own bodies! Please note that the workout does not have a warm up or cool down session, as such you should do so on your own prior to starting and when completing the routine.

We can all agree that a strong core is essential to our day to day functions. Whether you realize it or not, our butts are also constantly engaged whether we are walking, standing, running or sitting. Nearly all activities that we may partake in engage the buttocks! The act of simply getting out of bed in the morning and standing up engages many parts of your body, including your buttocks! Are you picking up that box from the floor? Well, guess what, your butt is being engaged! So why not strengthen and tone it? The rest of your body will thank you for the support!

The movements you will be seeing here help tone, strengthen and shape your butt by engaging those muscles repeatedly in an insane circuit! There is no question that when it comes to targeting the butt, squats are one of the best, if not the best movement you can do. During this session, the active rest will keep your heart rate up, and has your body moving the entire time. This is an aerobic, anaerobic, intense circuit session. This very challenging routine will work your core as you are using your entire body, while simultaneously targeting your rear end! It is simple, but not easy, and you will feel a special kind of sore the next day! However, if it were comfortable, everyone would do it, right?

Let us know how this intense session went for you!

10 Small Changes To Make Your House Feel Like A Home

10 Small Changes To Make Your House Feel Like A Home

Your house is more than just a building that you live in. It should be a home that makes you feel welcome as soon as you open the front door.

Making your house feel like a home is not something that simply happens on its own. You need to make some changes to a house when you move in, to give it that cozy, warm feeling that turns it into a true home. To help you speed the process, follow this guide to 10 small changes to make your house feel like a home.

1. Make the Windows Your Own

When you move into a home, they often come with boring Venetian blinds or less than attractive curtains.

One of the best ways you can instantly warm your home and make it showcase your style is to add some new window dressing. Adding beautiful curtains not only improves your home’s appearance, but it can also help to control the temperature.

2. Put up Some Art

If you have a lot of bare walls in your home, it will seem sterile no matter how beautiful your paint or wallpaper is.

Hanging art on the walls will instantly give it personality and make it feel like home.

3. Improve the Aroma

A house that is not filled with inviting smells will never feel like a home. There are loads of ways you can make your home smell nice. There are tons of air fresheners on the market you can use.

Incense and scented candles are a nice option as well. Don’t forget that baking in a home is also a great way to fill it with an aroma that instantly smells like home as soon as you open the front door.

4. Put out Lots of Pillows and Throws

A great way to make your home look warm and inviting is to place lots of pillows and throws out on the furniture. It is much better to have too many pillows than not enough.

There is nothing like the feeling of sinking into a cushiony pillow that feels like a cloud to make you feel like you are at home.

5. Instantly Class up Your Closet

If your closet is filled with wire or plastic hangers, it will never truly feel homey. To instantly make your closet feel classy, change out your old hangers for wooden ones.

Not only do they look great, but they are better for hanging your clothes as well.

6. Improve Your Air Quality

One of the most overlooked ways to make your house feel more like a home is to improve its air quality.

The easiest and best way to upgrade the air quality in your home is to change the old, dirty filters in your furnace regularly. Get some air filters delivered to your home so that you always have some on hand.

7. Fill it with Plants

Another way to improve the air quality in your home is to fill it with plants. You should have plants in every room of your home.

They help to improve the air quality and they look beautiful. As well as making your home appear homier, plants also help to boost your mood and lower your stress levels.

8. Change the Doorknobs

Most people don’t really give their doorknobs a second thought unless they are broken. That is a shame because changing your doorknobs is an easy way to add personality to your home.

Changing your old, boring doorknobs to new ones that are works of art will instantly brighten your home.

9. Upgrade Your Tub or Shower

There is nothing like luxuriating in a whirlpool bath or steam shower to make the cares of the day melt away. Your family deserves a bit of luxury when they are in their bathroom.

Install a new shower or tub today to make your bathroom worthy of a place in your home.

10. Fresh Cut Flowers

You can make any room in your house feel homier by placing a vase full of beautiful flowers in it. The gorgeous look and intoxicating aroma of fresh cut flowers will immediately brighten your day when you encounter them.

You don’t have to make all these changes at once. Try one or two a day though, and your house will feel like a home before you know it. The trick is to constantly keep adding these homey touches to make your home a place worthy of its name.
