The New Year brings in a new beginning. Even if you’re a little late in sticking to your new year’s resolution to stay fit, remember that it’s never too late.
If you’ve seen the 75 Soft Challenge on TikTok, you might be wondering what the buzz is about. It’s similar to another viral trend known as the ’75 Hard Challenge’.
And if you don’t know what that is, you’re in luck today because we’re going to give you all the knowledge you need to get started. You can tell from the name ’75 Soft Challenge’ that it’s all about health.
What Is ’75 Soft Challenge’?
To begin, let me explain what the 75 Soft Challenge is all about. It’s basically a wellness challenge to keep people motivated, and unexpectedly, a lot of people have hopped on board and can genuinely notice a difference in their health.
Stephen Gallagher, or @StephenGFitness on TikTok, inspired the TikTok phenomenon. Many people were unable to complete the ’75 Hard Challenge,’ thus this is the ideal alternative for people to stay healthy in a convenient manner.
It contains four rules, as opposed to the original’s five, and, as the name implies, it’s a lot kinder and more realistic task. And the rules are quite basic.
Although it is not as famous as the Hard challenge, the hashtag has been watched over 50 million times on TikTok thus far and is gradually beginning to rise.
“I’m starting the 75 Soft Challenge today. It’s like the 75 Hard but for people who don’t have time for two 45-minute workouts a day,” Stephen Gallagher explained in a video.
75 Soft Challenge Simple Rules
Now that you know what this health challenge is all about, you may be wondering what the rules are. To be honest, the rules are rather simple, and they are for both your mental and physical health.
And it’s something uncomplicated that everybody can try. In this remarkable 75 Soft Challenge, there are only four simple rules to follow. Here are the guidelines! Get started!
- For 75 days, train for 45 minutes every day. There are no days off, but one day per week should be dedicated to active recovery.
- Eat well and only drink on social occasions.
- Drink three liters of water every day.
- Read 10 pages of any book per day.
Simple to do, right?

The best part about the challenge is the ‘books’.
So I’m doing the 75 soft challenge. One of the “challenges” is to read at least 10 pages a day. I chose to read You Are A Badass Everyday. Every time I read it, I come across words that stand out to me. Every day I’m going to share those words. Buckle in.

Why People Think ’75 Soft Challenge’ Is Realistic Than ’75 Hard Challenge’?
Many people have said that the 75 Hard Challenge is unrealistic because it is unattainable.
The conditions for drinking water and reading a book are the same as in the 75 Hard Challenge, however, you cannot read a non-fiction book.
And you can’t drink alcohol at all, although the soft challenge permits you to do so on occasion. Another thing that many were unable to continue is working out outside regardless of the weather, which is not always practicable.
While the 75 Soft Challenge encourages people to move their bodies daily, it is also kinder. If you like to take it slowly, the 75 Soft Challenge might be a better choice for you!
I’m not doing 75 hard I’m doing the 75 soft challenge because soft life only
