It’s summer and time to rock your lower body into shape! This month we’ve partnered with Polar to bring you the Drop it like a Squat Challenge! Join the #FFSquat Challenge and squat every single day in June. Two squatters will win a Polar FT60 Heartrate Monitor, which is a perfect addition to any workout to get the best results and track your performance.
The challenge is to squat every single day. If you’re a beginner, strive for 1,000 total squats in the month of June and for you squat experts (intermediate or advanced participants), let’s amp it up to 100 squats a day in June for a total of 3,000 squats! Know that these numbers are just suggestions and the goal of this challenge is to get squatting, no matter how many you do.
Form is more important than reps, so make sure you have correct alignment. Shannon Colavecchio from Bad Ass Fitness breaks down the proper squat form in the video below. So watch, listen, and learn how to do the perfect squat! As an added bonus, Shannon goes over different squat variations such as adding weights, adding a plyometric and more!
