When you are in the best shape of your life and wanting to go to some extremes to prove it, then it’s time that you take on a challenge. There may be no better way to prove that you have what it takes then participating in a 50 Squats Challenge.
This challenge can be between friends, solely for you or in conjunction with a promotion at the local gym. No matter what, the rules are the same. You must successfully complete 50 squats in a row with no more than just a second or two breather in between each one. In addition, they must be done correctly.
You can choose to do with squats with weights or not. If you use weights, they can be barbells in the hand or on a bar across the top of your deltoids – the choice is yours.
Make sure you know how to properly do a squat. 50 squats is no easy feat and if you want the bragging rights, it’s critical that you are doing them the way that they are supposed to be done. Stand up straight with your feet spread so that they are the same distance apart as your shoulders are wide. Push your hips out a little and lower yourself down using your butt and knees to lower your torso and the rest of you down. Keep going at least until the point that your butt is even with your knees. Then slowly work your way back up. This is one complete squat – not two. You only have 40 to go – ready to feel the burn?
Don’t get sloppy as you continue the exercises. Keep a fluid motion going, deep breaths and stay well hydrated with water or a sports drink – never carbonated drinks. As you near the end, it might be tempting to speed it up. Don’t! This is only going to cause you to lose sight of proper form and potentially injure yourself in the process.
50 Squats won’t happen overnight. That’s why it’s a challenge. Challenge yourself to do 50 in a row, even if it takes you months to get there.
