Squat Health Challenge

    Hey All,

    In an effort to move more & be fit, I challenge you to do 50 squats a day with me for 40 days. You owe it to yourself to have strong, sexy legs! :) Let’s keep each other accountable and post in daily after we have completed our daily 50 squats.

    If you are new to squats, you can break up the 50 throughout the day. If 50 is too easy, then by all means, challenge yourself and squat more! Let me know how many you do as this will help me to push myself more. We can do this together!

    If you skip a day, then you have to make it up. Yes, that means 100!

    I did my 50 tonight.

    Happy squatting!

    I've got busted knees, so squats are out for me. However, I will commit to a daily basic yoga routine for 40 days. This is the push I need. Thanks.

    That is a good reminder that I have to train too. I have something like 20 kilograms to lose and the holidays didn't help at all. I guess I will be working more on my upper body. But let that video be my contribution to the initiative.

    Great idea! I will add this thread to my Forum bookmarks.

    I do 600 skips a day usually before my exercises and run.

    Seeing your 50 squats (in groups of 10)
    ...+upping you one thought per squat of gratitude that I have good (albeit creaky) knees with which to do this, as this wasn't always the case:-D;)

    I'm afraid another day has arrived and I think this is day two.

    That means thirty eight days to go.

    Oh.

    Well, I better throw back the chair, (not my hair as it's not long anymore) and squat down towards my toe!

    Fifty completed!

    I pulled a muscle between my shoulder blades so will need to catch up when I am not in pain.

    Oh, I hope you manage to feel better soon.

    When I was young and training I realized that the difference between the better "bodybuilders" and the novice ones was that the former would take their time to warm up properly.

    I wish you good luck and safe participation in this physically challenging adventure.

    I'll jump in to try it! The accountability will definitely help! I only just saw this, so I'll start at the beginning i guess. ☺️

    Oh boy! The flu has settled into my home and I think it is best for me to start over when healthy again. NOT giving up!

    Good job to everyone participating in this challenge. Your body is your temple.

    You can do it, Angela! Maybe start your day with it or schedule it in your phone. I like to do them in the shower bc the width of the bathtub is perfect and it keeps my feet parallel.

    Hmm, I just realized I am counting down from something I should be counting to.

    This song comes to mind.



    That video is probably more appropriate in our recent dog thread here, or perhaps on the music thread here!

    Day 4/40 complete!

    50 squats done, along with 90 heel touch sit-ups (3x30), 60 dumbbell floor presses (3x20), 600 skips (3x200), 60 push-ups (3x20), 1 hour run & walk, 30 pull-ups (3x10), and 120 crunches (3x40).

    I just did my 50 and feeling the burn while on the mends.

    I decided to catch up instead of start over, so I need to make up 200 squats.

    Whoa!
    I raise this guy a few 'gratitude lifts' and look what he comes up with:eek:
    Somebody's getting in shape!

    Me, I was happy that I made up my 50 squats from Saturday today and thought some more gratitude thoughts while I squatted. 1-grateful I can do this; 2- grateful dad is doing his stuff while I do mine; 3-grateful this is still easy; 99-grateful I am still working through the burn...
