There is nothing easy about performing 100 squats back to back. It’s why it is called a challenge. The 100 Squats Challenge can be something that you decide to train for just for personal satisfaction, to show that you’ve got chops at the gym or to compete with some friends. Whatever reason you choose, you are going to need to do some training in order to get to 100.
It’s important to understand the rules of the challenge. You can choose to do them with or without weights. Ultimately, however, you must do 100 of them consecutively without having more than a few seconds in between to catch your breath. More importantly, though, they must be done correctly – this means that you actually have to squat to have it count.
Bending your knees isn’t enough – you must feel the burn!
Start by standing on a comfortable, hard surface. You can be barefoot or in sneakers. Now, push your hips out and bend down using your knees. Pretend as though you are going to sit on an imaginary chair. Once your bottom has reached the level of your knees (or lower) you can begin your ascend into the starting position.
There are some tips for being able to do 100 of these squats without hurting yourself. The first is to make sure that your torso stays upright – don’t let it lean in too far.
You also want to make sure that you are not completing the squat too quickly. Take a deep breath in between each squat and focus on the movement. If you move too quickly, you run the risk of damaging your knees or lower back.
Stay hydrated. Drink some water and keep it nearby. 100 squats aren’t going to take five minutes – it will take much longer. So take your time and drink your water.
You can take as much time as you need to train for the 100 Squats Challenge. Begin by doing 20 at a time – then lead up to 30 and gradually increase your squats every few days.
Once you are able to complete the 100 Squats Challenge, you have bragging rights for life.
