We are halfway through our squat challenge. Your legs and glutes should be feeling stronger by now. You also should be getting use to the soreness and able to truly push yourself with all your squats. Good job on making it this far now lets all get ready to finish out the remainder of the month strong. Today I will show you three new types of squats you can do throughout the month to help switch up your workouts. Switching up the style of squats every time will help prevent getting bored and will also help you get more out of your workouts over time by alternating squat forms.
The goal is to do at least 100 squats per day to reach 3000 squats by the end of the month. You can do all 100 squats at one time or you can do sets of 20 or 25 reps throughout the day. Just be sure to challenge yourself and try to be consistent daily with yours squats. To give you a little extra motivation remember this quote, “Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.” -Unknown
1. It’s very important that you’re stretching before and after you exercise.
2. FORM! FORM! FORM! Get the form right before going for speed or reps.
3. Always keep the knees in line with the toes! Your knees should NEVER be in front of your toes!
4. When you are doing these different types of squats make sure your using just your body weight.
*If you’re more advanced in your weight training you can use light weight once or twice a week but I wouldn’t recommend using weight very often for the amount of squats you will be doing per day. I want to make sure you are keeping your body safe from injury.* Remember I love to hear from you throughout this monthly challenge. Tell me what your goal are for the month and how you plan to reach it?
