30 day Squat Challenge Anyone??
 
Anyone fancy joining me in this? The idea is that you start at 50 squats and work your way up to 250 squats a day. This suits me as I can do a few on a morning, a few in the ladies loos on my lunch break lol, a few before bed etc.

I'll be doing this in addition to my normal exercise (mostly walking with weights and cross trainer in gym 2-3 times a week).

Anyone fancy having a go at the challenge? Here is the breakdown. I'll be starting tomorrow morning (Saturday).

Day 1 - 50 squats
Day 2 - 55 squats
Day 3 - 60 squats
Day 4 - Rest Day
Day 5 - 70 squats
Day 6 - 75 squats
Day 7 - 80 squats
Day 8 - Rest Day
Day 9 - 100 squats
Day 10 - 105 squats
Day 11 - 110 squats
Day 12 - Rest Day
Day 13 -130 squats
Day 14 - 135 squats
Day 15 - 140 squats
Day 16 - Rest Day
Day 17 - 150 squats
Day 18 - 155 squats
Day 19 - 160 squats
Day 20 - Rest Day
Day 21 - 180 squats
Day 22 - 185 squats
Day 23 - 190 squats
Day 24 - Rest Day
Day 25 - 220 squats
Day 26 - 225 squats
Day 27 - 230 squats
Day 28 - Rest Day

I started this too with one minor modification I am droping a zero
so day 1 was 5 squats not 50 and day 30 should be 25. Well it
beats nothing ....

I just found out that what works best for ME is to combine just a little
resistance exercise with 20 to 30 min of walking early in the morning.
This seems to supress my hunger some and help my mood also. And
when I said a lttle resistance exercise that 10 squats I did this morning
was 1/3 of the resistance exercise I am back up to. I have also tried
hour walks, 1/2 hour walks twice a day ect. but this combination of
early morning cardio and a little resistance exercise seems to help me
more. Hoping we all find a program that works best for our individual
case.

I will start with you tomorrow. :)

I will probably have to break up my squats b/c I don't know if my knees can take that many all at once, but I am down! I will take a "before" picture also.

Great! I didn't think about taking pictures. I am going to take measurements of my hips and thighs too! I am leaving on vacation July 29th so I started today to have the full 30 days.
Breaking them up will be fine! Happy Squatting!!
