The Challenge

The challenge is to squat every single day.

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!

    Taking the challenge on!! I’m a beginner so will just do regular old squats :) setting my goal and excited to see how many I can do and how much I can improve by the end of June!

    I LOVE all squat variations, they’re the perfect exercise for stregthening the whole lower body! Each variation targets different muscles, so combining them is great for an all-over toned look! So excited for this challenge!! :D

    Hey everybody,

    I am a little confused… are we supposed to post pictures and videos of us doing squats, or does that actually not matter for the raffle itself?

    Nevertheless… I love my squats! sumos are awesome and TRX pistol squats! :)

    I’m excited to start this challenge, it gives me motivation.
    My favorite types of squats are the barbell wide stance squats or using a dumbell.

  6. Heidi DeGroot says

    Thanks for a great challenge! I’m excited for a chance to win a Polar as I haven’t invested in one yet, but would love to have one to keep me motivated while working out.

  7. Stephanie Manny says

    Great challenge…this will be the first challenge I actually try. Nothing like nice strong legs to help me with my running!

  8. says

    I’m sorry. I squat 1-2 times a week. USING A BARBELL.
    I never squat more than 5x in a row or more than 25x in an entire workout.
    If you really want to get something out squats, squat with more weight not simply more squats.

  9. Annette says

    I LOVE all kinds of squats & I’d hate to have to pick just one favorite! But I have to say jump squats are pretty awesome! Can’t wait to rock out this challenge! I’m setting a goal of 3,000 squats but I’d love to hit 5,000! : )

  10. L. Harms says

    I have a back injury right now. I am keeping it pretty simple w/ the basic squat for the time.

  11. Cali says

    I am a day late! good thing I did squats yesterday! lol I love all squats! My 2 favorites are jump squats and plie squats.

  12. elisha anderson says

    I love sumo and plie squats but am starting to really love squat jumps as well. Anything to get that booty poppin!

  13. stacey h says
