30 Day Squat Challenge

I came across this article recently on Refinery 29 about a 30 day squat challenge and I just HAD TO SHARE! Mostly, because I feel like I could and would actually do this! And if I can do it, so can you. Not to mention this is the perfect thing to get your booty & your legs summer ready!

So, here is how it works and it’s super easy. Below you will find your calendar with each day in the month labeled with what kind of squat to do and how many. There are 3 kinds of squats… The Basic, The Hands Behind Head and the Weighted. Scroll down to learn how to do each kind of squat.

30daysquatchallenge

The Basic

Stand with your feet slightly wider than hip-width apart and your back straight. Keep your toes slightly turned out. Lift your arms out straight in front of you for balance, and lower your butt toward the ground, making sure your knees don’t go past your toes.

The Hands Behind Your Head

Stand with your feet slightly wider than hip-width apart and your back straight. Keep your toes slightly turned out. Interlace your hands behind your ears, with your elbows out wide. Lower your butt toward the ground, making sure your knees don’t go past your toes.

Weighted Squat

Stand with your feet slightly wider than hip-width apart and your back straight. Keep your toes slightly turned out. Hold a dumbbell in each hand. Keeping your arms at your sides, lower your butt toward the ground, making sure your knees don’t go past your toes. Start with 5lb weights, gradually making your way up to 10lbs.

Think you can do it!? I know you can! Leave a comment below and let me know how it’s going!
