The Rogue 30-30-30 Challenge

The Rogue 30-30-30 Challenge

Invite friends and family to participate. Working out as a group helps you keep each other motivated and accountable!

Directions: Begin your challenge December 1, 2013.  Commit to complete the following exercises in one go. Push yourself as hard as possible while maintaining proper form. A rep with shitty form is worthless, do it right or do it again!

Also, make a commitment to eating clean for the duration of the 30 days. (If you need help with nutrition, we offer a nutrition program fully personalized to you, including measurements, weekly nutrition journal reviews and feedback for $200.00/month. Email us at

Good nutrition includes decreasing your alcohol intake. Make a 30-day commitment to reducing or eliminating alcohol.

Equipment needed:

Light dumbbells (I use 10 or 15lbs). You can substitute soup cans, bands, water jugs etc.

Heavy Dumbbells (I use 25lbs)

Adjust the weight throughout the month, as you get stronger.

23. DB Tricep Kickbacks – (Bend at hips, keep your elbows pinned to your side and forearms perpendicular to the floor, extend your hand back to where they are parallel to the floor, then back. Do not swing the weight, slow and controlled)

28. Russian Twists R&L=1rep – (Sit on the floor with knees bent and feet together and feet lifted a few inches off the ground. With the back at a 45-degree angle from the ground, move the arms from one side to another in a twisting motion while holding one dumbbell. Slow and steady is the key here. You can do this without a dumbbell as well to start)

29. Jump Scissors (From a bent knee position, jump as high as you can while crossing/scissoring your legs across and back before landing softly with knees bent)

30. Butt Kickers R&L=1 (Running in place, you need to kick your butt with your heel on each strike – This will loosen your quads and work your hamstrings all at once)


That’s it!!!!! Have fun and push to get better each day!
