180 Squats – Squat challenge, day 21

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QKMHUsqXCT4

Watch my YouTube video I took today, performing 180 bodyweight squats for the squat challenge I am partaking in. I hope all of you enjoy it, sorry for the visuals, I always try different filters and some work well and some suck – I like doing trials runs to see what I like best (sometimes I don’t use filters at all). Know that my feet are shoulder width apart and I am going 90 degrees or lower during the movement. I am going at a faster rate, but that doesn’t mean you would need to, take your time and go through the movement with the proper form/technique. Also, don’t make light of my wonderful leggings, I kind of threw something on and went with it.

Hello! College graduate in exercise science and ACSM Certified Personal Trainer. My blog has all kinds of fun topics, something for everyone who is anyone that involves themselves with fitness. I like to think of fitness as a confidence booster, something to make us feel good and look good & pushes us to do things that make us feel more productive, unstoppable and stronger mentally and physically. My blog focuses on building people, and helping people see their true potential, while also sharing my journey with workouts, competing with powerlifting, and sharing how to's on workouts, so you step inside the gym with more knowledge. I don't know everything but I am on a voyage to build my character, my strength and work on my weaknesses --- with awesome people in my corner who support me and my goals. I plan on being your cheerleader, friend, coach and trainer all-in-one and most of all, I want to be your listener, the person who can listen and gain more knowledge about you and learn what makes fitness important to you; what's your why! (Your why will carry you to the finish line). It's important to have purpose for something, because you will need that purpose when you start to give up on yourself or want to quit. "Don't let the fire that guides you, dim" - Shay-lon Besides the fitness stuff, I reside in Ohio, love dogs and love pizza. Typical 26 year old trying to build an empire that brings out the best in others and makes me the best person I can be in all aspects in my life. Before I die, I want a reason to live, and I was given that reason each day I am able to wake up --- I have learned to not take life for granted and to explore as much as possible because to live with zero regrets would be fantastic!

  1. I watched the video, thanks for sharing. I will have to try it. One problem I had was that I lost count several times. I think your pants were a little mesmerizing. Anyway, would you mind redoing it with a counter and a little chime for each rep?

    1. I will end up re-doing the whole exercise again anyways since I have more to do before the month is up πŸ™‚
      Thank you though, it is a good workout. I don’t think 180 reps is necessary but since I am doing a challenge, that is why I am doing so many at once.

    1. Mandy,
      Awhh thank you so much! ha. That you for taking time to watch my video. Good question, in the beginning of the challenge, my knees had their days when my deep squats would be tinder in that area, but since then, not so much anymore. I know when I use my barbell squats (weighted) that sometimes that will bring back pain in the knees.. if I am not careful. I think most of my issue comes from not properly warming them up sometimes and because one of them I had a torn ligament from when I played basketball.

      P.S I typically do deep squats for this exercise, although as long as one goes to their full extent because some people cannot deep squat – I always tell people to go as low as you can without hurting yourself, whether that is 90 degrees or only 45, one can work on getting better, no need to overdue it all at once πŸ™‚
