We've started out 2015 strong with the Whole30 Challenge and no TV for 30 days! Double discipline! I must admit, I think the no TV was harder for us than the Whole30;) I'm going to have to catch up on Jimmy Fallon's Tonight Show which is the only show I really missed. Not watching TV sure leads to being much more productive though...which has been great.
Well, January is soon coming to a close.... so what does that mean? The next 30 Day Discipline, of course!
The 30 Day Squat Challenge was actually my husband's idea. Perfect timing actually, as we are going to a seminar in Maui the first week of March. We are starting this on February 1st and it will go for 30 days.Each day you will do a different number of squats which will be listed on the free downloadable 30 Day Squat Challenge sheet you will print out. You will then "check off" that you completed that day. That's it! There will be a few rest days. This is meant to be a supplement to your current workout routine...not in place of. An "add on" if you will. You can do all the squats at once, or break them up into sets. If you absolutely cannot complete all the squats on any given day...do as many as you possibly can. Too easy and want more of a challenge? Not feeling sore at all?..... You can make it harder by adding weight. Hold a dumbbell or kettlebell! Are you ready to get stronger in 30 days? :)

It is imperative that you have good form when you perform squats. There is a right way and a wrong way. Make sure you prevent injury by reading on... Here is a picture of a woman doing a squat with correct form...
- Her toes are facing forward with her feet hip width apart.
- When she squats, her knees never extend over her toes. Tip: keep your weight in your heels to help accomplish this and counter-balance by extending your arms straight out in front of you. Act like you're sitting on an invisible chair.
- She squats until her thighs are parallel to the floor.
- She keeps her back straight and her chest up.
