(At Least) 30 Squats a Day for 31 Days. Can it be done?
It’s time you knew this about me.
Oh wait, you know this about me.
I’m pretty sure squats are what’s helped my dang nerve wake up over the past couple months and I’m pretty sure that continuing to do said squats will firm up my cheeks, hind quarters, hammies and quads.
That’s why I am declaring this “Squat-toberfest 2012!” Where I’ll be doing squats all month long.
31 days of squats. It’s like Christmas! Only in October. And instead of presents, it’s exercise. And instead of 12 days, it’s 31.
Ok so it’s not at all like Christmas. But still.
So let’s do some math. (Ok not me, I just yelled out the math to my husband who did it for me.)
Let’s say I do 30 squats per day in October. That would put me at 930 squats for the entire month (says my husband). Then, let’s say, I did a few more each day. I could hit 1,000 squats for October! Wouldn’t that be nice?
That’s a nice round number! Plus, it’s at least it’s about 800 more squats than I did in September.
30 squats is nothing, really. Right? I mean anyone can do 30 squats! You can do squats anywhere, really, especially if you don’t care about getting caught doing squats in public.
Pick a squat any squat
You are probably aware, there are multiple types of squats. I am not squat-exclusive. It’s probably better to mix it up anyway and do varying kinds.
But I love the ballet squat. I like the regular squat.
As stated previously on this blog, the deep squat sort of kills me in the inside but that’s how I know it works.
Take the Squat-toberfest Challenge!
Join me for Squat-toberfest as we squat our way to 1,000 squats in October! Please do note: 1,000 squats is a goal and can be modified according to your own ability and/or squatability. Strive for 1,000 or strive for 500, you pick your own Squat-toberfest goal! If you’re not comfortable doing 30 squats a day, start off with fewer and build. Just try to do some everyday.
Every Wednesday in my workout post I’ll highlight a new type of squat. I’ll be adding the squatting to my normal workout repertoire which includes various swim/run/bike workouts and also whilst keeping a close eye on my
Halloween candy consumption nutrition.
