30 Day Squat Challenge

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

For some reason, I like 30 day challenges. A while ago, I gave up diet pop for 30 days. I know, it’s hard to believe but I did actually do it. I didn’t stick with it but did give up the pop for longer than 30 days and even to date, I drink less than I used to. This month, I decided instead of giving up something from my daily routine, I was going to add something and decided to try the 30 day squat challenge.

For those of you who have never walked behind me, I have AFAS. That would be Asian Flat-Ass Syndrome coupled with smaller hips and thicker thighs. Which means shopping for jeans is about as fun as going to the DMV. In order to get jeans that fit comfortably on my thighs (damn you running), it means about an hour after I put them on, they’re sagging in the butt. I decided my only solution was to get a bigger butt and since a Brazilian Buttlift was out of the question, the 30 day squat challenge was on!

Squats are a great way to tone your lower body, yet I rarely do them. I have no idea why. Maybe it’s because my heart rate doesn’t get up like it does with cardio or maybe it’s because the act of sitting vs. actually sitting doesn’t seem as fun. But whatever my excuse has been in the past, that all changed today! I did my first set of squats in less than 5 minutes which tells me lack of time can’t be used for an excuse either.

And for those of you who aren’t used to working out, this probably isn’t a good challenge for you. I work out regularly and tend to think I put myself through some things that are kind of punishing (hello gravel grinding in the Flint Hills). The point of a challenge is to push yourself, not hurt yourself, so instead of going from 50-250 squats, half the amount. You know your fitness level best so modify this challenge to your situation.

I’ll check back in at the end of the month to let you know my results. Let’ see if I can finally cure AFAS!
