So I'm still getting use to blogging. This month I've done the squat challenge. What I should have done was take a pic of my butt at the beginning and then again at the end, but I've only just thought about it, which I guess is lucky for you guys as you won't be seeing it YET. Although I have taken measurements. For anyone that doesn't know what the squat challenge is, see the pic below
I started off doing the first 2 weeks with a 2kg dumbbell weight in each hand and my god was it hard. The third week I moved up to the 4kg dumbbell and carried on with a 5kg dumbbell for week 4 and the rest of the challenge.
Squats work on the hips, glutes, quads and hamstrings whilst strengthening the core. Therefore toning your legs and butt muscles. They also improve abdominal and back strength, burn calories from all the muscles involved and promote flexibility.
A few tips
Although I found the first couple of days hard work, it actually became fairly enjoyable over the month. I must admit it did make me break out into a sweat as well. I wouldn't say I have noticed a massive difference but it does show in my measurements. I have a total loss of 2 inches in measurements and 4lbs. So all in all, not too bad for my first month.
How many of you have tried the squat challenge and what was your thoughts??
