Why squats in this 4 weeks challenge? Because they are the best exercises to shape and tone the buttocks. You’ll feel the burn in your buttocks and legs, and even in your abs and back muscles.
In the first day of this challenge you need to perform 50 squats. Then gradually, you should increase the number of repetitions up to 250 until the last day. On the final day (day 28), rather than completing 260 squats you have to do as many reps as you can.
This 28-day squat challenge is a great way to strengthen and prepare your muscles for new challenges. So get your ass to the grass!
The most important thing in a squat challenge is your body position. Maintain your back in a straight line during the entire exercise if you want to get a round butt by the end of the challenge.
Breathing is another thing to consider, so try to use your stomach muscles to inhale and exhale during the squat exercise. Inhale as you bend your knees to squat down and exhale as you straighten your legs to return to the starting position.
Note: You can easily do the squats if you use the entire foot for better stability and avoid to lean forward while squatting down. This will also maximize the activation of the glutes and protect your knees from injury.
