I know day 1 seems like such a small vitory, but I did it. I did 50 squats, I've never done 50 squats before ever in my life!!! I love this site so much. Only my second day on here and I can already tell that this time I'll be able to lose the weight and keep it off!!!!

Good for you! I too started the Squat Challenge a few days ago. I'm now on the day you do 60 squats, which is 60 more than I normally do. I never would have heard of this, or thought to do it on my own, if it weren't for this forum.

Same here. I found it on their fb page. I think the only time I have ever done quats was back in high school lol. I'm kinda surprised tho I though I'd be worn out but it gave me more energy.

Congrats! 50 squats in my opinion is amazing!

I am thinking of taking that challenge later on in my weight loss. Right now I can only do 5 squats with out injuring myself. Not joking. Once I did 10.... I couldn't walk for 24 hours (Not exaggerating) and for a week I was super sore. 10 was all I could physically do till my legs gave out. I have strong legs-Its the back of my knees and along that area that needs lots of work.

I know the feeling, I have back issues too, they call in a bulge but its a disc out of place. I just didnt go all the way down and tried to keep my back lose, like not tense it at all, not as intense of a workout but legs still feel like jello lol

I've been thinking of starting it. I pinned the challenge weeks ago, but I haven't been brave enough to start!

You are doing awesome! If I did 50 squats I'd never be able to walk the next day. You are so inspiring!

For the people doubting they could do the squat challenge, let me throw out an idea!

My friend and I started about 3 weeks ago. We gave ourselves 24 hours to complete the squats. We would do 5 - 10 squats every hour at work til we finished. When we got to day 14 or 15 soreness was turning to pain. So we took 3 days off, and restarted the challenge. Now we do 10 - 15 squats every hour. We are on day 6 today, and it is MUCH easier this time around!

Congratulations!!! I started the squat challenge on the 1st and today is a rest day. Tomorrow kicks back up w/ 100 squats, though, and I have to admit to being a little nervous, LOL I noticed while doing my 80 yesterday that it was getting harder to complete. I'll probably start breaking them up into 2 sessions shortly.
