So last month I decided I wanted to really step it up and get summer ready. Meaning I wanted to push myself in my workouts and start a squat challenge that I saw going around the internet. I was hesitant about doing a squat challenge because that meant I would be working the same body part every day, which I generally would argue isn’t the best idea, BUT, I did it. And guess what? I saw HUGE results. Like actually a major difference. Personally it wasn’t strenuous for me (except maybe the day after leg day) and I am so happy with the outcome. So, I decided to share it with all of you…
Are you ready? Start whenever you want, and make yourself accountable. You’ll be so happy and confident on the beach this summer. Maybe it’s your first time, or maybe you are taking the plunge again and adding in weights. Whichever it is, push yourself!
Now, before you start the most important thing I want to talk about is… Form. I cannot stress this enough. Make sure you have proper form. You do not want to get hurt!
- Start standing up straight with your feet shoulder length apart.
- From this position, bend your knees bringing your butt back as if you were trying to sit on a chair behind you. Your knees should be in-line with your toes, your butt down, chest out, and your back straight up and down.
- From this position you move back to the starting position.
There you have it. Good luck!*Disclaimer: I am not a dietician, counselor, personal trainer, doctor, or any other healthcare related professional.
