25 squats a day for 7 days

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.

Recent advice

“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. ”

wow that's awesome mate =) btw do you know you can upload this as a training rather than as a status??

20140822154407-roomi

If not, there here it goes mate: on the top of the page there are "home training and discover" buttons. scroll your mouse to training button and it shows you options.. choose "add a training session". there you can choose "squats (any types like body weight, barbell and so on), push-ups and crunches too".. why to update using "training session"? Because you don't have to remember how many pushups u did for a month.. update keeps a track of it.. it will be useful when you take more challenges mate =)

Sonali M 25 squats a day for 7 days Challenge

Contributorbronze Sonali M Day6-Sept 12, 2014. DONE.
Body was tired and fatigued due to daily exercise after my early morning workout yesterday. Now after about 36 hours of resting, raring to finish Day6. Completed 25 squats just before going to bed. Tthen did 25 more because I could! :-)
Maybe not the most advisable time for a workout, but hey! I am only trying to finish this challenge. The end is near! I can see the finish line. :-)

Susan N and Emma A encouraged this.

Sonali M 25 squats a day for 7 days Challenge

Contributorbronze Sonali M Day4- Sept 10, 2014. DONE.
It's 12:33am in the night and by English calendar, already Sept 11th, but I will stick to my Hindu calendar where daybreak signifies the change in date. Hence, still in the challenge and crushing it! :-)
Now off to bed.
