Tomorrow is April, FOOLS! But the upcoming challenge (aka “squatty party”) is no joke.
March was all about pushups. 50 a day, Monday through Friday, until yesterday! How did you fare? Do you feel stronger? Do you feel better? More confident in your ability to get out of bed after sleeping on your stomach? Do you feel like telling us all about it?
Great. But what about your legs? You spent all month maneuvering yourself in and out of a plank. But one day you’re going to be walking down the street and a fellow pedestrian is going to accidentally drop that twenty pound dumbbell they were carrying for some reason. You, having a kind heart and a penchant for exercising, squat down to retrieve said dumbbell, only to struggle on the upward ascent against gravity. You start to fall forward, tossing the extra weight and catching yourself in a pushup position. You’re well equipped to bang out fifty of these if you want, but that isn’t the objective! Mission failed.
To avoid this embarrassing scenario, you’ve got to build those leg muscles. You need to practice squats! So starting April 2nd, we tackle our squat challenge! Forget leg day. This is leg MONTH.
100 squats a day.
That’s 100 squats a day, Monday through Friday, for the next four weeks. Break them up however you’d like. Do them all at once. Do 50 in the morning and 50 in the evening. Do 1 every minute for an hour and forty minutes. Go crazy – just get them done!
20 days of squats. 100 squats per day. That’s 2000 squats in April! Yeah buddy.
Will you take on the challenge? We start April 2nd. Come to Monday’s HIIT workout and get your first round of squats done right then and there! As the old saying goes, the bigger the crowd, the better the squats!
Lastly, remember the four rules:
- Anyone can do this.
- Everyone is welcome.
- We will have fun.
- Do the damn squats.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend – we’ve got work to do on Monday!
