Athena, it's amazing how much squats can make a difference, even when you don't have a lot of time for exercise.
I work at a corporate desk job but because I pee so many times a day, I just try to do 15-25 squats per bathroom visit! I think Mary TG mentioned that below--it totally works! Plus it helps me avoid feeling like such a blob at work.
I use to struggle to do 5 now i can do 100 most days took me 5months , an weights added at times
If you do even just a few every day you will quickly build up strength to do more. You could try doing 10 squats every time you visit the bathroom, on this diet that will add up fast!
Only on day one lol I have done an occasional 20-30 in a day here and there. I really struggle! My fitness levels really need some work.
Ted, only people who are in a group called '100 squats a day' are going to read your post, so you're in luck, thanks for sharing. I'm only doing 20 at a time but trying to get in 100 per day and really love the way they make my core feel. Also as a busy Mom it's great that you can do them anywhere anytime.
Day 250. Where I've been and where I am now. I started 2013 off with the intention of doing 100 Squats a Day, EVERYDAY, for 365 days. I was so eager, in fact, that for the first 2 months I was doing every set of 100 Squats under 2 minutes. If I did them in 2:01 I would re-do them. Anything above 2:00 was unacceptable for me at the start of this challenge. I wanted so badly to to condition my mind and body to adapt to the harshest workout so that it would eventually maybe feel 'easy.' Since January, however, I've learned many things and have made many tweaks in my approach to becoming a better athlete and coach. For one, I have definitely missed a few days here and there, and have learned to be OK with it, and not feel guilty like before. The reason I have taken days off is because I have been 'prioritizing my fitness', something every top athlete does when they set out to reach their peak performance. So, for example: The day before a big race I don't do my 100 Squats because I want to feel 100% FRESH on race day. Mentally and physically. Even doing the 100 nice and slow will still tax my muscles and willpower more than I want. And having a fully stocked reserve of willpower is ESSENTIAL for pushing through the negativity that can creep in during a hard race. The day of a big race I don't normally squat either because I want to give 100% of my energy to performing when the gun goes off, and then recovering as quickly as possible once I cross the finish line. I may get down and hold a squat position though, just to open up my hips... but no reps. The day AFTER a big race I'm usually too sore to even consider doing the 100 squats. Also, I want to prioritize my recovery so I can begin training again to get ready for my next event! ----------- But for the most part, I still do my 100 Squats every damn day, and I love it. It makes me feel FIT! Yes I know, "I am fit!" but some times I don't feel fit unless I do something challenging. Going for easy bike rides, swims, and runs don't make me feel fit. In fact, going easy can actually make me feel unfit! So having a short 2 minute workout to do everyday is a real blessing for the mental side of things. 'Feeling' fit can often be just as important as actually 'being' fit. It's a real confidence booster. And speaking of a 'short 2 minute workout', I actually haven't been doing them THAT fast everyday anymore (I've been prioritizing my bike/run workouts) but I did do them yesterday in 1:59 and it stung quite a bit! It was great. But when I went out to run shortly after to do a key run workout (6x1km at race pace) and my legs were SHOT! I had to cut my session short. So, lesson re-learned: if you want to run well in training, do the squats AFTER the run. ---------- I'm now entering the off season which means I'll be putting my focus back to strength training and prioritizing SQUATS! Lots of squats. THOUSANDS of squats. I have 2 more running races planned for 2013: a 15km trail race this Sunday, and then a 5k road race in two weeks. Once those are done, expect a lot more videos from me I have lots of goals I want to achieve, and lots of ideas I want to implement, so stay tuned and stay subscribed as I document this journey through time and space! Force is with you. Thanks for reading. Post the code: 'SQUAT4LYF' if you read this entire post
Got my 100 squats in today during Body Pump class!
did the 100 25 push ups 30 minute row machine thanks to valencia oranges
I like doing sets of squats because it's a good way to fit in exercise throughout a busy day. Also want to strengthen my legs/core for when I get my road bike next month.
