Everyone loves a good challenge, so why not add a bit of good ol’ fashion friendly competition into the mix (that includes squats)?
For the next 30 days, we challenge you to complete 3,000 squats. Now that number can seem a bit daunting but we are here for you. We are providing you with a day by day calendar that breaks down the count so that each day you will be progressing as your squat endurance builds up to set you up for success. Follow our plan and you reach the 3,000 squats in 30 days goal with ease.
Maybe you are also wondering, why squats!? Well, in today’s society, we have said it plenty of times and we will say it again, we sit too much. Typically this is due to the types of jobs we have, so we want to combat some of the negativity sitting is doing on your body and give that booty a good challenge.
PS This challenge isn’t just for women. Men can benefit in many ways from working on their squats as well. Also, if you are able you can do this challenge with back squats too, but keep the weight the same throughout the whole challenge).
