WARNING: Why you should NOT do “20-day/30-day challenge” workouts to lose weight


You made the right decision to get rid of extra weight and I want to support your journey to become fit, proud, and happy.

I love people and it’s fascinating how so many motivated people have to give up on their weight loss journey simply because of following a program that is not best suited for them.

20-day and 30-day Fitness Challenge programs are popular because of how hard you need to push yourself everyday to get to day 30 with a hope to lose weight somewhere in the process.

Did you know…

Did you know about the dangers of 20/30-day Fitness Challenge?

Did you know these workouts can actually make you gain more weight?

Yes! There are hidden dangers of these workouts. Don’t worry; you are in good hands because I will help you, my new friend, protect yourself from these hidden dangers.

Here’s the hidden dangers you may not aware of:

  • These workouts will produce amazing results if you are already lean and you have good stamina for this type of intense training, but are you?
  • Initially they are easy but, over time, they make you overtrain and overexert
  • Daily incremental workload, something most trainers will not recommend, can lead to injury because of overuse and injury of supporting muscles groups
  • Common injuries are tense or sore hip flexors, lower back pain, or have severe pain in back, cramps in legs, and sore calves and/or whole body soreness
  • There is no challenge after 20/30-day period is over and with no results you will

The biggest danger is that you become too sore or injured and unable to go to work the next day. You become frustrated and de-motivated to train and give up on program that caused nothing but pain.

    • The first week is somewhat easy, but second week onwards it becomes really hard. One of my clients started this recently on his own while I was away and he said the same thing. I got him to stop. His neck and back started hurting too.

      Instead of this workout, do these exercises in 3 sets of 15-25 reps and make sure your form is right.

  • I’m a high school athlete and play competitive soccer. I like these 30 day work out because they give me a challenge and something to push for. I feel like they get me in shape fast and give me the base line fittness that I need for more long term programs. For someone like me do you think these are a bad?

    • If you are an athlete and committed to do these workouts then they are good for you because you are using these to improve your performance. Only suggestion I would have for you is to do these in correct form and don’t cause injury.

      What do you do after 30 day are finished? Do you go up in reps or stick with one rep range?
