Back in January when we started our water challenge, Heather, Marianne and I decided that we should complete a new challenge each month. For the month of February, Heather and I are participating in a squat challenge while Marianne partakes in a plank challenge.
Since we aren’t doing these challenges on the weekends, we double up on squats on Fridays and Mondays.
On our first day, we completed 50. Each day goes up by 5, (except for Fridays and Mondays) and today we’ve completed 150 squats!
We break up squats usually in sets of 25 and 20, and complete a few sets throughout the day. Mondays are always the hardest since we have a few days of rest, but throughout the week we get a little bit stronger! We haven’t noticed any major changes in our legs and glutes but hopefully they’ll become a little more toned by the end of the month.
Kristen- my goal for this squat challenge is to increase my endurance and tone my legs and glutes. I like this challenge because it’s nice to get off my chair every few hours to exercise.
Heather- After this challenge, I would like to incorporate squats into my daily routine. I want to tone my core, thighs and glutes.
Marianne- I strive to complete a 2 minute plank by the end of the month. So far, my personal record has been 1:10.
