After high school I pretty much fell off the fitness train and have had a REALLY tough time getting back on it. I have been wanting to get back into a fitness routine for a long time now and I have decided that I am just going to slowly work my way back into it. I’ve started watching videos on YouTube that relate to fitness as well as reading blogs and articles online. My main downfall is just that I can’t find any motivation to workout when I know that I should. As I was scrolling through my Facebook news feed I came across an article through Refinery29 about a 30 Day Squat Challenge. “That is it!” I thought. SO here we go! Today I am going to start this 30 day squat challenge to slowly push myself into being fit!
As you can see above, that is the schedule for the 30 day squat challenge. Each day you will complete three sets of the squats listed for that day with a 2-3 minute break in between each set. For example, day 1 you will complete 3 sets of 10 basic squats, equaling 30 squats total. There are three different types of squats you will do: a basic squat, hands-behind-head squat, and a weighted squat. If you aren’t aware of how to do them you can click here and the article shows you exactly how. Don’t forget to do a light warm-up before completing your squats! The article suggests that you complete 30 seconds of butt kicks, 30 seconds of high knees, and 30 seconds of jumping jacks to get your blood pumping! I think this challenge will be exactly what it is…a challenge…but a very reasonable one! I would love for you to join me in this 30 day squat challenge! I need all of the motivation that I can get and hopefully I can help to motivate you too! Let me know if you are down to toning that booty! It is swimsuit season after all! I will be posting updates of my 30 day squat journey via social media so be sure to follow along!
