30 Day Squat Challenge

Ok ladies it’s time to break out the short shorts and bathing suits but before we do so let’s perk that booty up and tone those legs and thighs first.

Join me on the 30 day squat challenge. We’re 2 days behind but that’s alright, for Day 3 do 165 squats.

Squats are the perfect exercise as they work the largest muscle in the body and provide serious gains in muscular size and strength. And most importantly you don’t have to go to the gym or need weights to do them. All you need is time and dedication.

Throughout the month the total of squats increase but don’t get intimidated!! Break the total into smaller reps or just do as much as you can. For those who might need more of an added challenge, squat in your heels or with weights. Also, remember that proper form is VERY important. Proper form allows the full benefit of the exercise to be felt and most importantly to prevent injury.

How To Do The Perfect Squat

1.       Place feet a little wider than shoulder width apart.
2.       Extend the arms out straight so they are parallel with the ground, palms facing down.
3.       Bend the knees, make sure the chest and shoulders stay upright and the back stays straight. Tip to keep back straight: Keep the head facing forward with the eyes straight ahead.
4.       To achieve a good squat imagine yourself sitting on a box or chair.
5.       Push back up and repeat.

Are you going to join me?

Don’t forget to  take before and after pictures to see your progress at the end of the month.
