Ginny D I added to my challenge without thinking about it by the end of the week- but I did get sore from them- I think because I was mindful of my posture and really targeted maintaining excellent posture during each squat and if I lost balance or did poor form it didn't count :)
Bodyweight squats are an excellent compound move that you can do anywhere, at any time using the resistance of your own weight. As well as being a great exercise to work out and strengthen almost the entire body, as they require a significant amount of effort to do, they are a great addition to fat loss training circuits. Muscles trained include the glutes, hamstrings, quads, calves, core and back.
The proper form is outlined in this guide: Squatters
If your weight isn’t on your heels and your bum isn’t ending up below your knees, then you aren’t doing it right, arms can be placed behind the head to make them harder.
The challenge is to do 25 bodyweight squats a day, with the outlined technique consecutively every day of the week, for one week.

“It is a nice challange, only too short. I didn't see any results. Those 25 squats could be like a completing challange to a workout. But still I think that 25 squats in 7 days are a little bit too little to see any results. Though I think it is a good way to start for a beginner. ”
