so I finished the 30 day squat challenge with a rousing 250 squats yesterday . I did it because – someone suggested it; overall it didn’t look hard and it was a short time. and I was curious – would there be any results in 30 days.
Results: there is a lot more muscle in my thighs. I don’t really know if it is visible, but I can feel it. Also, my lower back is not cranky.
What I learned: most people who spend part of their day on their feet can do 50 squats. I know because I made people try it. So in my completely non-scientific study if you work in a library -I bet you can. However, 250 squats not a good number. The challenge moved too fast for that to be a sane number. I can do 100 good squats. I can’t do 250 good squats. Maybe someday, but I need to work up more slowly.
current plan: 100 squats most days. When I do it in the morning, it works to help wake me up. I’m guessing Thursdays ( late Wednesday nights) and Saturday ( early morning work) will be squat squat days. And I’ll look for something to add.
