30-day Squat Challenge

What I find the most challenging thing since becoming a mom is trying to fit in fitness. Seriously, I’ve tried incorporating the 30-day Shred, a 20-minute work out, and I cannot seem to find the time. So, I’ve decided to take baby steps to get my ass in gear.

So, while perusing (i.e. spending countless hours on Pinterest when I COULD have been working out) I came across a 30-day Squat Challenge. I thought, “What the heck?! Might as well squat it out”.

What I like about this challenge is:
  1. -       It’s only squats and I can pop a squat anywhere
  2. -       It’s only 30 days
  3. -       It’s spelled out for me and I do better with things that are a no brainer for me
  4. -       I like check lists and I just cross off the days as I do ‘em

I’m on day 6 and so far, so good. I split the squats into two sets so far. Not sure if that’s what I’m supposed to do, but that’s what I’m doing! I’ve also incorporated standing calve raises with this challenge. I do as many calve raises as squats to try and make it a little bit more challenging. I may have the ol’ muffin top, but in 30-days my legs should look bangin’!

If you are interested, this is the challenge:
Day 1-50 squats
Day 2-55 squats
Day 3-60 squats

  1. I split the squats in two sets as well :). I must admit it is harder as it looks!
