1. 30 Day Yoga Challenge
A great fitness challenge to get you started, is taking on a 30-day yoga challenge.

It is not only a great way to stay fit, but also it is a great exercise for the body and the mind. Being locked down at home might take a toll on the mental state of your mind, and therefore practicing yoga will definitely help you relax and de-stress while being at home.
2. 100 Squat Challenge
The challenge itself is pretty self-explanatory, you need to achieve a hundred squats on a workout in order to start toning the lower part of your body. The challenge here is to repeat a hundred squats not only in one workout but in every workout that you do. You can start little by little, by doing 10 in one day, 20 the next, and adding more and more little by little.
3. Planks by the minute
Another great challenge is to work on your plants in order to strengthen your core. Well, some people are able to last a long time planting others don’t have the resistance to do it. The best thing that people can do is build your strength little by little until you are able to beat your previous record. The planks by the minute challenge involve doing a plank every day for a minute or more, but continue adding seconds to the clock day by day, and always beating your previous time from the day before.
